Two of my blogs were entered in the Sydney Writers' Centre Best Australian Blogs competition, this one plus New England, Australia. Sadly, I didn't make either the finalists or the honourable mentions. Tsk!
Actually, I was a little disappointed. I know that I break most blogging rules in writing, I write for my own purposes, but I had allowed myself to become interested.
Once I saw the list of shortlisted blogs, I could not resist browsing through them. If you are interested, you can find the full list here. I thought that I would point to some finalists and honourable mentions that I found of particular interest. If I haven't listed a blog, that doesn't mean that its not a good blog. I am only talking about my particular tastes.
Sarah Mitchell's Global Copywriting provides some fascinating and well written insights into social media. I have added her to my blog list.
Nikki Parkinson's Styling You is very much one for the women. If is a blog that my wife and daughters would enjoy. This doesn't mean that we mere males shouldn't look, however. To see what I mean, have a look at Paper Giants: mags, journalism and old stories.
Tim Kastelle's Innovation Leadership Network focuses, as the name says, on the innovation process. I have added him to my blog list.
Abigail Nathan's Bothersome Words is a good practical blog for those who write. I have added it to my blog list. Agent Sydney (anonymous)'s Call My Agent! provides interesting insights for those wishing to get their book published.
All this will provide you with a taste of the entries. I'm blowed if I know quite how they are going to judge the whole thing.
