Irish Blog Awards – I’ve made the Shortlist!

 

Littlewoods-Blog-Awards-2016-Website-MPU_Shortlist

 

Given how slack I have been on the blog lately, I can’t quite believe this, but 746 Books has been shortlisted for Blog Awards Ireland in the Books & Literature and Arts & Culture categories! I’m so delighted, I really wasn’t expecting to make it this year.

I’m really delighted to get this far, particularly given the good company I am in on this fab shortlist;

But now I have to ask for your help. If you could spare a few moments then please click on the Vote Now image below and vote for 746 Books in the Books & Literature category.  The public vote goes towards 20% of the overall score and I would be eternally grateful for your support. It would be amazing to be a finalist! The voting opens today and continues until Tuesday 23 August!

Congratulations also to No More Workhorse, the great entertainment site where I review theatre productions, who are nominated alongside me in the Arts & Culture category.

And no, I haven’t forgotten about 20 Books of Summer, I’ve been reading away like mad (I’m on Book 16) but haven’t had time to review. I’m loving my new job, but it is taking up a lot of head space and leaving room for little else. There will be a review before the end of the week and then I’m off on holiday next week to the wilds of Donegal, so hopefully the break will refocus me to kick the butt of this challenge!

Right, I’m away for a celebratory cup of tea and maybe a bun!

  1. Ooh, congratulations! I’d love to vote for you, of course, but I’d need to be sure you don’t wear a combover and encourage people to shoot your opponents… 😉

    Fingers crossed! You deserve it. 😀
