Long-lists published for the 2008 Irish Blog Awards

Irish Blog Awards logo

As the annual Irish blogosphere period of introspection gathers pace, it now appears that Alan in Belfast is long-listed in the following four categories of the 2008 Irish Blog Awards.

But better than that, it’s really good to see a lot of familiar faces (and blogs I regularly read) in these and other categories.

  • The next steps are that the Round 1 judging will now begin with judges rating the blogs long-listed for each category on the quality of their writing, interaction and consistency.
  • The top scoring blogs will make it into the category short lists where they will undergo Round 2 judging, with the category winners announced on March 1 at the Award Ceremony in Dublin on March 1.
  • (Particularly successful blogs will only be short-listed in the two categories they rank highest in after Round 1 judging - though they can also appear in the Best Blog Post and Most Humorous Post categories.)

Made it last year - and finally removed it from the bottom right panel - feel free to borrow!
