I’m starting to pack!

I’m absolutely thrilled and excited to have made it to the finals of the Irish Blog awards in the category of Best Personal Blog.

The list has some great talent and I am amazed to make it through this year.

Best Personal Blog – Sponsored by Microsoft Ireland’s Developer and Platform Group

Thanks so much to Damien Mulley for all the background work and the category sponsors Microsoft Ireland’s Developer and Platform Group

Best of luck to all nominated:

The party continues….

UPDATE:  For anyone flying to Cork with Ryanair:  BRING YOUR PASSPORT all emails from them this week say that it is needed for check-in.  I had been told previously that my driving licence was sufficient!

    Oooh, you’re up against some stiff competition there! Annie’s American diary was absolutely brilliant. As for Grandad’s unique brand of surrealism….

    I always think choosing between blogs is a bit like choosing between friends. You love them all in different ways. If you say you prefer one, it only upsets all the others….

    The list is very interesting this year and the fun continues!

    May the best person win…. Good luck to all.

    Yeah! I was looking forward to this even if I hadn’t made the finals but this makes it that bit more exciting.

    Well done…I am not a bit surprised that you made it this far and look forward to seeing you again. I’ve missed you since Friday!

    @Nelly – Thanks, it is a pity you cannot join us in Cork for the party.

    @Darren G – I look forward to catching up with you too.

    @Sharon – Friday was great and I just want to continue the conversation (as Darragh says)!

    Thanks so much for the list. I already subscribe to yours, K8 the Gr8 and annie’s, so took a look at the other two , liked what I saw and subscribed to them also.

    Good luck at the awards – tough choice – I certainly couldn’t choose a favorite. I love them all. Can’t wait to hear more about it.

    @Ian – The blogging world is full of friends, with a few we have not met yet!

    @Magpie – The public only had their say at the very beginning when it was open to nominations. Thanks for the good wishes.

    @Paddy B – Glad it was your fingers and not your knees you crossed, 🙄 We have to wait until Saturday night for the results. I am sure the event will be live streamed so you can keep up to date on what happens.

    Hi Geri, we missed you.

    I hope that you and the family are all well. Have the ribs healed?

    Thank you for the good wishes.
