Well the voting is getting underway at the Irish Blog Awards. Slugger is running in several categories, though not in the main category of best blog/blogger. Plenty of familiar names though and some you may not have heard of. So as well as voting for your favourites, go an check out a few that you’ve not heard of before. We are in the best political and best group blog categories, and two of our most prolific commenters have made it into the best comment final too. Inclusion in the final shortlist depends on getting enough in the public vote. So nice as it is to be nominated, we need your votes now!
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
