Nominations are now open for the Irish Blog Awards 2012 and (only if you think I'm worthy) I'd love to be nominated :O) If you think I'm worthy click on the button on the top right over there and nominate me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org (you need this when you nominate me). Thanks a million xxx
If you know any other Irish blogs worthy of a nomination be sure to head over and nominate them too! This is a great way to promote Ireland, Irish business and Irish people. I don't know about you but I'm all for that. Despite all the doom and gloom in the press we have a fantastic country here with great people and we should be proud to promote ourselves.
Since returning to Ireland I have found that it seems to be shunned upon to 'self promote' but that's what social media marketing is all about isn't it?? I'm self employed and I am paddling in a very big pond and if it means I lose a few friends along the way just because they think I'm gloating well so be it. That's what I'll do to keep my head above water. I'm doing something I totally love, that I'm totally passionate about and can't wait to get out of bed in the morning to do so I'm going to do all I can to keep it that way.
Thanks to Lorna, Amanda and Beatrice for organising these awards. We need more people like them to get this country back to where it was. Forward thinking, creative, energetic, optimistic ladies. I will try not to emphasis the 'ladies' bit too much. Oh panse of course I will ......Sisters are doing it for themselves !!! (Sorry I couldn't resist!)
Happy Wednesday peeps!
