Yes folks, it’s hard to believe, I know, but a whole year has passed since we last rolled out the red carpet and indulged in some mutual air-kissing and back-slapping. You guessed it – awards season has rolled around again! And it’s not just Dame Helen Mirren who’s in the spotlight this time – it’s South African bloggers who are gearing up to celebrate the best of the South African blogosphere over the past 12 months.
And I must say, I think that the quality and diversity of South African blogs improves year after year – apart from my own beloved Cooksister!, here is a selection of other possible nominees for your perusal before you plunge headlong into nominations (alternatively check the rather del.icio.us list of SA blogs or the Technorati list):
Beyond the Pass
Once you’ve had a browse and decided who you like, head on over to the 2007 SA Blog Awards site, read the small print and get nominating (the nomination form is at the bottom of the page and you will need to provide URLs plus your e-mail address). Only ONE nomination per person is allowed, so do give some thought to your nominations. Alternatively, click on the SA Blog Awards 2007 logo near the top of the left hand column on this page and follow the instructions.
Nominations are open until Monday 26 February 2007, after which a panel of bloggers and "celebrity judges" will review the nominated blogs (taking into account relevance and quality) in each category and submit their individual top 10 in each. The votes will be tallied and the top blogs resulting from this will go through to the finals.
Final voting will be open to the public from the Monday 5 March 2007 till midnight Friday 16 March 2007.
So off you go – do some proudly South African reading, exercise your democratic right to
vote nominate, and sit back and enjoy watching democracy at work
