The 2008 Irish Blog Awards bandwagon continues to roll towards the Alexander Hotel in Dublin on March 1st, with the short-lists announced today.
Alan in Belfast managed to stay in the running for the Best News/Current Affairs Blog category (whittled down from 15 to 9 contenders), but fell short of the mark for other long-listed categories: Best Blog, Best Arts & Culture Blog and Best Personal Blog.
Great to see lots of other local faces shortlisted ... many congratulations to all concerned.
