The Irish Blog Awards 2006

with 8 comments

So filthy weather didn’t prevent a full house for the first ever Irish Blog Awards. The categories were,

The night was weird for a number of reasons. Firstly most people had never met in person, secondly it was mile after mile of crazily gorgeous looking women, thirdly it seemed to die after the awards with many people exiting very quickly.

I can’t help feeling the very radical and personal nature of blogging needs a different format. This is not a critcism of Damien who gets all kudos for a great night, more the fact that we as participants were too for passive in this particular event.

My take on the night was it was a complete success, but loose the raffle guys , even if I did win a wireless router (thanks and god bless pink 35), it was very village hall, very bingo.

Final bit of info, the guy who picked up Twenty Major’s awards told me his name, and if you want to know it, go ask him yourself 🙂

I took a bunch of photos that are now on flickr, if you’re in them and you don’t like your picture, give me a shout and I’ll zap it.

  1. Finally, someone who has the list of results! The brother won the best photography blog which is great! Not surprising that Twenty Major won so many though, particularly for most humorous post, which is a classic.

  4. Cool pics! If you add the tag “irishblogawards” to each of them (I think you can do it in a batch operation on the set) then yours will be included in the slideshow

  6. I can vouch for the ‘if you don’t like your pic I can zap it’ comment. I met Joe at the awards and he very kindly delted a horrible fat photo of me from his camera and took another one instead. I look kinda sweaty and drunk in it…but it’s not too bad. Any chance I can use it on my blog Joe? I’ll link to you of course, but I wouldn’t mind people seeing me looking a little less track-suited and scruffy than normal! (Plus I paid a fortune for my hair!!)

    Cheers! Was lovely to meet you last night. And you’re right about the awards, it was odd the way it broke up so quickly…but a really fun night none the less

  8. […] I won a free wireless router at the Irish Blog Awards a few weeks ago. Its a Linksys WRT54GL, but came with FON software pre-installed. I have nothing against FON and their aims but I found the software hard to use and configure. So this week I reflashed the router with the original Linksys software. […]
