Almost a winner

Just a quick note to say that I was honoured to be invited to the Premier Christian New Media Awards on Friday.  This blog was nominated for Best Christian Blog and Best Newcomer Blog.  In the end I came away as runner-up in the newcomer category.  Whilst it’s always hard to get so close without winning, I’m still very pleased that this blog has been recognised and receive extremely encouraging words from some of the judges.  All the winners were thoroughly deserving of their awards, so I’m not too disappointed.

Unfortunately as I wasn’t able to give an acceptance speech, I couldn’t thank a number of people publicly for their valuable support since God and Politics in the UK kicked off properly at the start of this year. I expect that for many people who start writing a blog, one of the biggest fears is that no-one will read it.  It’s therefore hugely welcoming when other more seasoned bloggers put their weight behind yours and plug it enthusiastically.  These people in particular helped me out in the early days despite not knowing if I would be any good or turn out to be a religious nutcase:

Thank you once again for visiting.  I shall do my best to keep this blog going to the best of my time and abilities.

P.S. Now that I’ve got something to talk about, I’ve added an ‘Awards’ tab to the menu.

  1. A well deserved award for a blog not yet a year old! Keep it up and who knows what next year might bring.

  2. Hugely disappointed that you did not win but what an achievement to get runner up in your first year. God and politics is as much a part of my daily routine as brushing my teeth. A big thanks to you and your wife for all the hard work.

  3. Congratulations. Yours is an excellent blog. I hope you are encouraged by the recognition and will keep up the good work.
