I'd like to thank the Academy…

I won the Irish Blog Awards Best Technical Blog!

Unbelievably I won the award for the Best Technical Blog at the Irish Blog Awards on Saturday night. I didn’t think I had much of a chance 1) considering the quality of the competition and 2) the fact that the volume of posting here has decreased since I upped my podcasting output!

Still, those fivers I slipped the judges obviously paid off!!! Thanks to everyone who voted for me and to Damien for organising the event.

Now, if I could find some way to monetise this – anyone need a blog/social software consultant?

  1. Henriette,

    of course I remember – thanks for the kind words – you introduced yourself to me the night of the conference finger food (I want to say conference dinner but finger food seems more accurate!).

  2. It’s all good Karma – maybe it’s partly in recognition of the podcasting and other work with IT@cork.Good talk on podcasting before the event as well.

    Speaking of Karma, I don’t know what I did to end up in the Irish times photo (just in front of Bernie Goldback). I’m a blogger and threw a couple of quid to Damien for the sponsorship at the start, but I don’t understand this black art of PR…

    *If* you were willing to sacrifice all personal credibility, I’m sure you’d be able to get at least 18 months of gigs as ‘Ireland’s premier Techincal blogger’. Fancy being the David Mc Williams of the technical blogging world?

  3. Thanks for the kind words Paul *blush*!

    That’d depend Paul on what I’d have to do, and how much it’d pay!!!

  4. As they all say Tom, congrats!

    I have said it, and now everyone says it too: you are the Podfather of Irish Tech.

    Whatever it takes to get that extra monitisation…get to work!

    best wishes,
    b.

  5. Don’t go off getting big-headed now that you’re famous, Tom. I got a recording of that voicemail from Paris — so don’t go gettin’ sloppy!

    =D

    In the meantime, ‘grats!
