Yes, the Irish Blog Awards. That time of the year again when the girls get to dress up like ladies and the men get to bang those girls in taxis crossing the breadth of Dublin city. The circle of life unfolding into a delicious sandwich.
Anyway, I know how you, the reader, loves to lavish us with verbal praise and accolades. Well, as your leader, I would like you to take it up a notch and vote for us, not just once, but as many as you can. I'm not officially telling you to cheat. Cheating is bad n' shit. But bend the rules so that we win by a large margin.
I respect the Irish blog awards and their organisers. Although for seventy years it has been regarded as 'pat on the back' for the industry, the award ceremony is still watched annually by three billion people from around the globe. The famous statuette Bertie, which is awarded to the nights winners, is an icon recognisable from Trinidad to Kinsale for his golden beer belly and cowards hunch.
To vote for us, just read this and follow the simple instructions. Here are the categories:
* Best Blogger
* Best Blog Post
* Most Humorous Post
* Best Photo Blog
* Best Fictional Piece in a Blog
* Best Arts and Culture Blog
* Best Political Blog

Yes folks. Only you can fill me with pride and make my high chair seem like a symbol for my brilliance rather than just being where I eat the food my mother prepares. Do us justice. You.
