I’ve been working on this project on and off since the Irish Blog Awards on March 1st. It’s a book of the award winners ‘in their own words’. I know that there are tons of posts and links on various websites where people can read the words of the winners for themselves. I thought it would be a good idea to compile them all together into a single place and presented in a book format.
I’m a fan of issuu.com and their free service provides a nice platform to share the book and, hopefully, spread the word about Irish blogs to a wider audience.
I have to say that all the responses from the winners were extremely positive and it is only thanks to their generosity of time that this has been made possible. To each and every one of them a big thanks once again.
I didn’t have a blog at the time of the blog awards and had vaguely thought about setting one up. It was really the accounts of the awards night and the various posts following the event that pushed me towards the creation of le craic and I’m glad I did now as I have somewhere to “launch” the book.
This is the 1st edition. Not all the winners are included in the book. I didn’t get a response from some and it’s possible my attempts at making contact could be sitting in a spam folder somewhere. If any award winner reads this I’d love to make this book complete by having the full compliment of winners included, so please get in contact via the Talk to le craic link.
So, it is with great pleasure that I declare this book launched. You can view at
Issuu.com (hint: view in in full screen mode)
or download the PDF here for easier viewing. (hint: right click and save the document to your computer – it works better that way)
