Well its late Christmas eve, and having survived the last minute shopping frenzy its time to pick some winners for the Blog Herald Christmas Blogging Awards. Whilst trying to avoid the term first annual, perhaps the term last annual may be more appropriate, for the lack of interest in Christmas in the blogosphere has truly disappointed us. Visit nearly all of the top 100 blogs, or even top 1000, and you will see little interest in the spirit of Christmas. Is Christmas dead in the Blogosphere? We hope not!. But enough negative, because the few entries we received are worthy of praise. For the award Best Christmas Decoration of a Blog, AT the HEART of IT wins for its traditional spread with Off on a Tangent receiving an honourable mention for cutest Christmas decoration.
Scorpio Girl wins best Christmas posting, not only because she was the only entry but because her post highlights some of the differences experienced throughout the world on Christmas Day.
I think next year we might look for some sponsorship and incentivise the whole thing: Christmas is a special time of year, whether you are religious or not, and it is disappointing that many do not embrace it.
Our thanks and congratulations to the winners, may all your christmas wishes come true.
