vote wisely!

Filed under: misc — petiteanglaiseparis @ 7:38 pm

While I am puzzled not to see the likes of the lovely and very talented Anna Boat or the side-splittingly funny and rather dashing JonnyB in the British category, and let’s be honest, a little disappointed not to make the shortlist myself, I would ask you to step this way and consider casting your vote for:

Best European blog: Le Blagueur à Paris. This is my best friend and partner in crime Meg – she of the can of beer concealed in pantyhose incident – and her blog is both wickedly funny and terrifyingly well written.

Best UK blog: A Beautiful Revolution. Another very good friend of mine, amazingly talented bloke. He doodles! He writes! He takes very pretty photos! He gets a bit melancholy sometimes, too, so you never know, your votes might even cheer him up.


  1. Yaxlich nominated you, Anna and JonnyB. He thinks that the Bloggies have got it in for him. Maybe they’re in league with the vegetable soup people.

  2. I nominated you, Anna, Yaxlich and Jonny amongst others……..

    I’m baffled…….. and a bit disappointed that the nominations depend entirely on numbers. You should be up there Petite.

  3. Actually Sally it doesn’t depend on numbers, it depends on a panel whittling down a longlist of 20 blogs (which I was on, I saw the visits) to a shortlist of 5 in each category. I have no idea how big the panel is, but it is at this stage that weird things tend to happen.. which is good, because smaller blogs get through, but can also seem a bit arbitrary.

  4. ‘Dashing’?

    Good lord, I’ve got abundant flattering words for the inimitable Mr B, but none of them are ‘Dashing’.

    I think it is because his weirdly large round head looks like it wouldn’t be very aerodynamic.

  5. Oh, and thank you.

  6. enid’s sorry to say she didn’t nominate anyone because she’s new to this blogging lark and didn’t know she was supposed to. she’d have voted for everyone whose been mentioned so far, and of course petite, if she were allowed to.

    if there were a section for eastern european blogs, she’d have nominated carpetblogger –

  8. I voted for you, p’tite! And was sorry to see that none of my nominations made the short list … what does that say, I wonder?

  9. I have no idea who all these bloggers are, but after reading your post, I will check out their blogs. The important thing, I think, is that you support your friends….

  10. The panel is 50 strong – minus the people who can’t be arsed when it comes down to it, and the people who don’t vote in every category.

  11. I nominated you first!
