Awards

The polls for the Satin Pajamas will close tomorrow. Vote while you can.

We’re nominated for a Bloggie, but more importantly you can vote for us in the semi-finals of the Koufax awards, in the categories for Best Group Blog, Most deserving of Wider Recognition, and Best Series (for our Ukraine coverage). I will immodestly claim that we deserve to at the least be finalists in each of them.

But even more importantly you should check out all the great nominees, and especially the koufax categories for best post and best humorous posts. The Bloggies have some great ones too, and many of the best are Europeans, like La Coquette, Petite Anglaise and Francis Strand.

And of course all the Satin Pajama finalists are great. Ben Hammersley made the point that our humble little awards had a more impressive roster of blogs than the venerable Bloggies, and I hadn’t thought about it, but I think he’s right.

  1. I did my duty and voted. It is the least I could do to thank you for the extra exposure (hits trebled!) the AFOE awards have given me.

  2. Yes, David – thanks for sponsoring these awards, it’s an honor to be part of them. (And, it was a pleasure meeting you last week, as well!)

  3. Yep – they’ve been well worth it (even though I’m not going to win) – found a number of good blogs I hadn’t seen before. Ta very much, etc.

  4. Hurry up and close the polls – before we get beaten!

    David – thanks so much for your effort in organising these. Perhaps more important than the fact that we as individuals have new blogs to read, is that we’ve all become aware of each other. Perhaps the first small steps towards a European body politic…

    p.s. Seeing as perfect.co.uk is at least guaranteed to take at lease 2nd place in one of your award’s categories, how about a link from your sidebar?

  5. Hmmm. If I’ll just close the thing randomly, I’ll in some sense decide the nailbiters myself. I vaguely thought I’d wait until 23 :59, but then I’ll anoounce the winners in the middle of the night.
