At 5am this morning (UK time), the Shorty Award nominations finally closed. I’d been in 5th place in the Politics category, but was knocked down to 6th by a last-minute surge from The Bloggess. However, the top six positions in each category go through, so this means I’ve made the short-list in that category. Now it’s down to the judges.
Apologies to those I annoyed by lobbying for nominations – it’s all over now, I promise! And a big thank you to the 325 people who nominated me – especially those who nominated several times (sorry, each person gets counted only once though).
