SA Blog Awards finalists announced

SA Blog AwardsYesterday the South African Blog Award finalists were announced and thanks to you guys I have been nominated for two categories, “Best SA blog about tech/computers/web development” and “Best designed SA blog“.

Now I’m afraid i have to ask for your help once again. This time in voting for me to win. I even made a poster for you, because your special to me.

Propaganda is a type of message aimed at influencing the opinions or behavior of people. Often, instead of impartially providing information, propaganda can be deliberately misleading, using logical fallacies, which, while sometimes convincing, are not necessarily valid. Propaganda techniques include: patriotic flag-waving, glittering generalities, intentional vagueness, oversimplification of complex issues, rationalization, introducing unrelated red herring issues, using appealing, simple slogans, stereotyping, testimonials from authority figures or celebrities, unstated assumptions, and encouraging readers or viewers to “jump on the bandwagon” of a particular point of view.

Simply follow this link to the SA Blog Awards site and get voting.

Whilst your in the voting mindset you may as well head on over to Muti to vote for my submission for the SA Blog Awards logo design competition.

That’s if you like it of course 🙂

  2. Thanks GW, I voted for you btw, “Best New Blog” and “Best Writing”. Was disappointed not to see your blog in the nominations.

    Have to wrangle a few more grannies I suppose!

  3. Hmmm… that’s a particularly sore point. Apparently i was on the list when it first went up and then it mysteriously disappeared… But thanks anyway, much appreciated, especially the writing bit!! *blush*
