For the third year in a row, I have elected to put myself through the trauma of the Best Australian Blogs competition. Good grief – I’ve been around on the inter webs long enough for this to be my third entry!
For the duration of the competition the nominee badge sits over there on the side bar, but here it is for context!
You would think I’d have learnt my lesson last year, wouldn’t you? Seems not!
So many wonderful blogs enter, many are people I read: not as regularly as I would like to, but I do when I can. How on earth can I compete with them? I suppose we all have similar thoughts.
If you are an Australian blogger and you don’t know about the competition, pop over to http://www.writerscentre.com.au/bloggingcomp/index.html and enter. What is the worst that can happen? More importantly, what is the BEST that could happen? :D
The official hashtag on Twitter is #bestblogs13 if you want to keep up with the fun/nerves/panic attacks of the contestants. From memory, the organisers have a few panic attacks too – they got a huge number of entries last year, leading to a mad scramble to review them all! From what I see on Twitter the numbers are growing fast this year too and the competition has only been open four days!
This year there is special bait. Random House Australia are sponsoring the competition and judging Love versus Goliath‘s category. I’m not sure if that is actually bait or just plain terror inducing. Maybe the latter.
Get your little fingers over there and enter! It is great fun!
