After doing so well in Total Politics Blog Awards 2011 in the non-aligned category (number 18) I might have got a mention in the Councillor category. Today those results were released and to my shock and amazements I made it into the top ten Councillor blogs in the UK. In fact I came number 6! Last year I was listed 28
It was also a good day for other Cornish Councillor bloggers with six other names in the top 35. The Cornwall Councillors are Alex Folkes -7, Dick Cole – 13, Jeremy Rowe -14 and Jude Roberson -27. One other Councillor from Illogan Parish Council, Stephen Richardson was listed 16.
This is an excellent result for everyone concerned. Again, I would like to thank all who voted and please continue to read and take part in the debates.
And to top it all off I am listed in the Top 100 Political Blogs in the UK at number 88.
The Total Politics Blog Awards 2011 results are being released. There are many categories including the best LD/Con/Labour blog and blogger. Also categories for best media, left/right wing, non-aligned, MP and Councillor blogs.
So far, the Cornish bloggers have done rather well in the awards with Jeremy Rowe and Alex Folkes doing well in the LD category. MK and those left-leaning bloggers have done well too, with Rob’s Cornish Blog, Illogan Blogger and Dick Cole in the lists. The BBC’s Graham Smith also does well in the Media category (46th). Jude Robinson is 55 in the Labour category. No Cornish Tory blogger has been mentioned so far.
As for me, I have done well by coming 18th in the top 100 in the non-aligned category. Considering the 17 above me are professional journalists/bloggers like the BBC’s Nick Roberson (10th) and Huffington Post (15th) I have done amazingly. I might get a mention in another category because not all the results are out.
A huge thanks to those who read my blog, though not always agreeing with me, and taking the time to vote for me. And to Total Politics for running the competition.
The 2011 Total Politics Blog Awards are now upon us. Last year I made it into the top 30 Councillor awards coming in at number 28. I was extremely happy with firstly being nominated, and secondly coming so high.
I will certainly be voting, as there are many good blogs out there. You can vote for your favourite blog HERE.
Of course it would be very nice if you could vote for me, but if not, there is always next year!
