For the Love of Blog: Vote for the SA Blog Awards

The Blog awards celebrate all that is brave and free about blogs in South Africa. These guys and gals have plugged away at their keyboards distilling their filtered slice of cake to captivate us at our desks and our coffees, despite our manically busy or glazed over slothyesque (and every category in between) lives  . These people have not only lived it, but photographed it for us too. And then re-sized the photos on photo bucket (design blogs) or posted badly captured sliced life pics that make us laugh anyway. They have put themselves out there for us to judge or love, remember or discard like flyers. Sometimes they make a lunch-time read during a revolting day at the office feel like an “out of Africa” flyover the Magaliesberg mountains or a terrible-toddler day seem breezy next to a blog about waking at least 6 times a night for a sick baby. They tell you about the sale of the century, capture sartorial-esque street style or a glimpse of life as a foreigner in China. Sometimes they are laugh out loud funny. And let’s face it, there aint heaps of money in blogging. Sure it’s driving a bit of traffic their way and they can place adverts on their blogs, but mainly they’re doing it for the love of blog. People: apathy is a weapon of mass destruction. We’re in an era where the magnificent Hayibo blog closed. Sure it’s a bit of admin to register on the awards site in order to stop voting blocks and keep it fair, but let’s do it for the love of blog. Lets keep the Bloggers going. They can’t beg you themselves, so I’m asking you for them. Get out there and vote. OK Normal blog programming continues. pic from http://www.weheartit.com/.
