Blimey, I won

Somehow or other, I seem to have won the 2009 Irish Blog Award for Best Technology Blog/Blogger! To be honest, for the last year I haven’t been spending as much time on the blog as before, due mainly to a rather compelling distraction, so I’m doubly grateful for winning.

Unfortunately, I was out of the country, at Nishad and Janet’s wedding, so missed my chance to get up on stage and thank my fellow bloggers in person — but I asked John to do so instead. Seems he in turn got stage fright and delegated to his missus, who picked up the trophy. Thanks Fiona! That’s probably just as well, since I’m pretty incoherent in that kind of situation myself.

Cheers to my fellow nominees, Eoghan, Robin, Michele and Pat. One of you guys should totally have won ;)

And last of all — cheers to BitBuzz for sponsoring the category, and Mulley for the whole bash. I definitely have to turn up next year!

Now I need to put more time in this year to really earn that award…

    Well deserved Justin, most of the tech blogs don’t deserve the description, whereas here I’m guaranteed to read about at least one thing I have to google in most posts. And all the better for it! :)

    Congrats Justin! And on the compelling distraction also, which I hadn’t heard about!

    Congrats! I managed to mumble something on your behalf. And then spent the rest of the night feeling very protective of your award, a very large bottle of Heineken and a polystyrene sign that said “Winner” (now says “inner” – might stick an “S” at the start instead!).
