Its the Final Countdown……………………

Ruinhunter collage (640x512)Some of you will already know, but this blog ihas been nominated for and made it into  the shortlist for not one, but two categories in this years Irish Blog Awards. And I am absolutley over the moon. I had never been one for allocades and awards, and was just happy that someone else enjoyed my mix of images and history.. But I must admit, it feels pretty damn good to recieve such regognition. There have been many great blogs nominated this year, some of which I though where much more deserving than mine, so I am deeply honored to have made it to this stage.

Yesterday voting was opened to the public, these public votes will represent 30% of overall score for this round of judging. Voting is open until the 21st September and the finalists will be announced soon after. So I am currently in two categories this year. Best Arts and Culture Blog & Best Photography Blog. It would really mean alot to me if the Ruinhunter made it into the finals, so you would like to help make this happen, here is what you can do.

By clicking one of the above links you will be able to vote for a number of different blogs on the shortlist for that category. Its as simple as that. I wont start working on my acceptance speech just yet, but I would like to thank each and every one of you whom have supported this blog over the past few years, every like, comment, pm, follow means a lot and has kept me going even through the difficult times 🙂

  2. Done, Ed! Good luck. Except maybe more luck to you in Best Photo Blog than in Art & Culture. Because we’re competing with each other in Art & Culture, and it could get ugly. I’m not a pretty crier. 😉

    Ed does an amazing job of recording whats left of our our ancient sites for posterity before they crumble into oblivion. His photography is just stunning. Not surprisingly, he has been shortlisted in two categories of the Irish Blog Awards. Please follow the links and vote for him. I cant think of a more deserving winner.

  12. Done and done. I voted for you in both categories… because you totally deserve the attention and the recognition. You have earned it the right way: through hard work and thought, and not bullsh*t attention seeking, like 98% of Youtube.

    Jaysus I must be a bit thick, but I can’t find a link to vote for you! The links here seem to be down, and the official website makes me want to kick a cat it’s so annoying (and I generally don’t kick cats, just for the record…) Got a URL I could use? Help a brother!
