2007 Australian Blog Awards – coming soon

Can you believe it’s almost December already… the shops have had their Christmas decorations up for about a month already which means it’s about time I started thinking about organising the Australian Blog Awards.

Now, you may or may not remember that I was in two minds about puting myself through this again… but what can I say… I’m a sucker for punishment.

Anyway… I hope to do things pretty much the same as last year, assuming the guys at Collective Apathy are happy for me to hijack some of their bandwidth for a month or so.

If there are any suggestions, new categories etc, let me know in the next week or so. I hope to announced the start of the nomination period in early-ish December.

Last year one of the most common complaints was that people didn’t even know that these awards were on. Now, this is the 4th year for these awards, and they’re always on at the same time of year, so hopefully people will remember… but it might be an idea to let your readers know, just in case people have forgotten.

So… swing by again in about a weeks time for the official call for nominations… but until then, if it’s not too much to ask, could you please spread the word.


  1. Good on you for going through the pain again!

    Forget about the whingers, sooks, and people who forget your awards are on. It takes a lot of unpaid time and energy to do what you’re doing – so hang in there.

    Have you finalised preparations for the 2007 Australian Blog Awards?

    If not I have an nomination in the ‘personal development, motivation, inspiration, success’ category:


    Craig Harper (B.Ex.Sci.) is an Australian motivational speaker, qualified exercise scientist, author, columnist, radio presenter, and owner of one of the largest personal training centres in the world.

    Please let me know.

  2. Just browsed across this – this is great and good on you for organising this. I will keep an eye on this and be ready to nominate.

    If there is a science category, I would nominate my friend and colleague Marc for his “Mr Science Show” website and podcast – http://www.mrscienceshow.com

    A very good site.

  3. Thanks for the suggestions.

    John: I think a “personal development, motivation, inspiration, success” category might be a bit too narrow a field.

    Digger: “Tech Blog” is going to be modified to “Science and Tech”
