Wow! We Won!

So this humble blog actually won the Best Blog of Business at the Irish Blog Awards last night!

I wasn’t in attendance, but I believe George was there to pick up our award.

Thanks to the sponsor, RedCardinal and the event organisers

While I’m sure there will be plenty of blog posts over the coming days from attendees, nominees and winners with lots of potentially embarassing photos etc, this one from Cathal Garvey caught my eye.
Cathal did an analysis of the blogging platforms and hosting providers of the shortlist.

Interestingly enough we are one of the few users of MovableType, but we host more of the shortlist than anyone else (the most popular blogging platform being WordPress).

So, we would appear to be the host of choice for Ireland’s top bloggers.

I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but it’s still pretty cool!

UPDATE: Now with photo of the gorgeous award itself

    As mentioned elsewhere. Congratulations on the award. I hear it was a close run thing and you won it by a horses head ……….. a foam horses head. 😉

    Congrats on the award, well deserved.
    Although the results of Cathal Garvey’s study must feel like another win, so nice double!

    Congratulations. I’ll be reading you in future.
    I’ve written you an Open Letter on my blog. I’d be grateful if you’d read it.

    It just wasn’t the same seeing George head up to accept the award. I was expecting to finally meet Michele in person and/or get him pictured with Baby Bear…

    Thanks everyone 🙂
    Now what exactly is “Baby Bear” ?

  13. Richard Hearne February 23, 2009 at 18:09 #

    What? You mean that wasn’t Michele I handed the award to?

  14. Michele Neylon February 23, 2009 at 19:01 #

    I obviously didn’t make any impression on you so 🙂
