Ah Karyn.. I have to get the message out & set a good example for people who might be shy about promoting themselves for nominations :) Sorry yr getting a bit spammed - buy you a virtual drink at the awards.

Josie: I wasn't really complaining. I totally understand the need to publicise this event - hence my own contribution.

Even with all that prompting, though, I don't think I could bring myself to nominate one of my own blogs - I still feel like such a beginner!
