A kind person has nominated this blog for Best Australian Tech Blog in the 2005 Australian Blog Awards.
Sometimes I sense a bit of a backlash against blog awards, especially ones with narrow categories. My blog would have much better chances of getting this award: Best Returning Australian Expat Librarian Blog with some Coverage of Tech Issues.
But the categories aren't that narrow, and I think that blog awards are valuable if only because they invite you to look at the other nominated blogs, so you can get a better idea of what's out there. I for one am particularly interested in taking a look at the blogs nominated for best Tasmanian blog, best New South Wales blog (because I guess I am also a NSW blogger now), the best tech and political blogs.
Just to let you know what's been happening: I had a bit of block with writing up Part 2 of my job seeking experience. Then I started writing a guide for online dating for Ambivalenz (not quite finished). The similarities and differences between job seeking and dating have inspired to return to the job seeking post with a slightly different approach.
