We all like to be recognised for our efforts in our chosen field. And for local bloggers that means getting your name on one of those SA Blog Awards.
No. This isn’t a plea for a nomination. If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time you’ll know that I’m not about awards. If you want to show appreciation for this blog, then leave a comment, tell a friend or drop me an email. Personally, that’s how I measure recognition and appreciation.
That said, there are some really good South African blogs out there. So I’ll be nominating and voting for the ones I think are most deserving. You should do the same. Nominations and voting are open from 1st March through to 1st April, and the winners will be announced on 3rd April. So go on and be a sport. There’s a good fellow.
Speaking of recognition and appreciation, there’s a really cool webcomic called Player vs. Player. While it’s mostly gamer related humour, the situations are pretty universal so the appeal is broad. I’m pretty sure the author, Scott, has a wonderful following. Hey, I’m a huge fan! My problem with the site is that if you want to leave a comment by way of recognition of a job well done (as I wanted to for this comic ), you need to be a paid-up member of the fan-club.
That doesn’t make any sense. Why would you charge your fans – especially for something that you would like to receive? Getting them to pay for member-only content makes sense but to charge people for praising you? I’m not saying it’s wrong (I’m sure he has his reasons). I just don’t get it, is all. And now he won’t get my comment…
