Whoo-boy, it's time once again for the Irish Blog Awards!
Now, as you may remember, last year we here at LTA were nominated for three awards: Best Arts and Culture Blog, Best Photography Blog and Best Blog. How many did we win?
We got shafted - like our friends Fustar.
Said shafting is documented on this fine podcast:
Letter to America - Chapter 26 - The Irish Blog Awards
Now, don't get me wrong. Wayne and I had a fine time as these photos will testify:
It was great meeting the Irish Blog Awards creator Damien Mulley and all the other wonderful Bloggers.
But gosh darn it we'd like to win something. Anything.
Or best Aine Post.
So I'm asking for your vote. Click on this link to go to the Awards Site:

Blog Awards Nomination
At of the time of writing this Post there's no way with one form to 'multiple nominate' - which is a shame cause I think LTA should be nominated in a variety of categories.
Now you ARE allowed to nominate a site in different areas - I believe LTA is a strong candidate in many of these categories so I urge you to vote for us in as many areas as you think appropriate - and feel free to blog about this Post as well.
Now, if I understand the rules correctly, the Best Podcast category is for a 'specific episode' - which means there could be a lot of votes spread out for LTA as we've had 54 episodes of the show so far. I don't have a particular favourite - feedback from fans leans towards:
a) Chapter 40 - The World Cup Podcast Special
b) Chapter 29 - The Lift 2.0
c) Chapter 26 - The Irish Blog Awards
Actually, now that I think about it, it would have a certain Borgian quality if the podcast about the Irish Blog Awards won the Irish Blog Award for Best Podcast.
Anyhew, let your conscience be your guide.
And if that's not enough I include this photo of me pleading for your vote, (by the way my message is scrawled on a piece of paper that has pictures of puppies on the other side - that's right PUPPIES - you know what you have to do).
