Best Australian blog: the people’s choice award

 Since I did not (can you believe it?) make the finals of the Sydney Writers’ Centre best blog awards (can you believe it?) I am asking every reader to vote for me in the people’s choice award. 

The link is here.

En Passant with John Passant is on the first page of the blogs listed.

Well, what are you waiting for?

Of course it is all probably just a clever advertising ploy by the Centre.

However a vote for me in the people’s choice award means a left wing writer might have a chance of winning instead of the usual parade of reactionary or conservative or middle of the road writers. And food writers. Food writers! I mean, I ask you, can you believe it?

Vote early and vote often. Entries close on 9 May.

Satire aside – just how big of a wanker are you …

Begging your readership to vote for you on some floosie accreditation website is as big a fraud as the Logies …

If your material does not inspire – behave like the rest of your elk – strive to do better …

How big? Pretty big.

My elk? Yeah, I know, not fair but I couldn’t resist.
