The Irish Blog Awards: long-listed

The Unemployed Blog has found itself on the long list for two categories in the Irish Blog Awards, best newcomer and best personal blog. To be nominated at all is hugely gratifying. To know people actually like this stuff really makes the effort worthwhile. Thanks to whoever nominated me and to the judges who rated this blog. Cudos also go to Mulley for organising these events. It really brings forward blogging in this country.


I liked Looseville before it was cool to like Looseville

I’ve noticed that Alan Moloney’s rather tasty web comic has been getting some attention recently. Alan has previously sent some traffic my way with some links to me on his site. It’s a favour I’ve tried to return, but my contribution is likely to be blown out of the water now that Damien and the Indo has recognised his talents.

It is fantastic to see such a great site get the attention it deserves. Alan is also a rather nice guy, so I’m sure – despite his most recent cartoon – it’s not going to go to his head. Well done, horse. Keep up the good work.
