I am absolutely chuffed to bits this evening after following a link to the 2008 Blotanical Awards to discover that I have been nominated in the Best UK Blog category! I had popped over to make my voting selections as the deadline is on Sunday 28th September. What a surprise this was. I would like to thank all the blotanists who have voted for shirls gardenwatch. I am touched.
I would also like to thank this little chap in the photo above as without his visits to my garden there would be no blog at all!
For those who don’t know - I started this blog back in November 2007 as a way to share photos and video footage of the European Robin with my friend in Australia who was missing Scotland. I had no idea when I started back then how much fun it would be, how much I was to learn and how many new friendships I would make. Would I recommend blogging? Oh yes... I would!
Would I recommend Blotanical as a way of discovering new garden blogs? Oh yes... definitely! In fact one more thanks is in order here… to Stuart and the Blotanical team for all the hard work they have put into the site - well done.
Only members of Blotanical can vote in these awards. You can make your votes by following the link at the top of my post or through the badge at the top of my sidebar. What a selection of categories there are for voting too – this looks a great success.
Congratulations on your 1st Blotanical Awards, Stuart!
Oh... and one final thing. Guess where Stuart is based? Australia, now what a coincidence is that!
The photo of the Robin shown above was taken in my garden in January this year.
