Some of you might know that the South African Blog Awards group met to plan the event a few days ago at Cafe Neo in Mouille Point Cape Town. I tried to make it but missed the boat by about 30 minutes or so and caught Dave Duarte hanging around afterwards meeting with some people. A little disappointed I was.
Amongst other things discussed at the meet were new rules and new categories for the competition. I wasn’t around for last year’s one as I wasn’t much of a blogger then and had no idea these initiatives even existed back then.
What’s the SA Blog Awards All about then?
In their own words:
the SA blog awards showcase the very best of South African independent web publishing in various categories.
My question to myself is, do I stand a chance of featuring anywhere in one of these Categories?
I reckon I could take one of these Categories, Maybe:
- Best Undiscovered Blog – if someone discovers how undiscovered I really am and how good I am at being undiscovered. 🙂
- Best Post about the SA Blog Awards – If I actually put some real effort into writing one (hint – this post)
- Best Green blog – with some CSS styling maybe
- Best SA Blog about Design – Aha, now there’s a category, a difficult one to win though as writing about Design takes huge amounts of effort. I see this Category seems to be more about the actual design of the blog and not the content. Better keep at that re-design then.
Think I can Make it? Or Maybe Not?
If you think I stand a snowball chance why not Vote for me, or maybe just do so out of the kindness in your hearts. If you think I’m nowhere close, maybe give me some tips on how I can make a go at it.
I’m not shy about being an amateur, tell me what you think of me & my site and maybe you can help me improve.
