In a shameless attempt to try and win something, I'd like to ask people who find the blog of use, either in cooking or gardening, to consider nominating the blog Irish Kitchen Garden for the 2012 Irish Blog Awards.

http://www.blogawardsireland.com/nominations-open/

The food/drink or eco/green categories seem to be the most apt

Cheers and thanks

Do you not think you should win on merit.
If everyone here voted for you what would that achieve you win but won what and did you deserve it, why does everyone want instant fame and recognition from their peers.
Its nice to be important but more important to be nice. sorry i will not vote for you.

Ah sure - being nominated is good enough really.
There are a lot of commercial and semi-pro designed blogs nominated as well and some are a lot more specific so I would not really expect to get through to the next round in fairness but thanks all the same, I got good cauliflower this year so miracles do happen sometimes.
