I’m quite sure I emailed LDV and asked them NOT to link to my post at #60 (this one – but don’t click on it!). I have had death threats from piggie afficionados and do not wish to cause offence.

How very dare you!

(that’s this post by the way, in case you’d missed it the first time)

I think the Golden Ton’s a smashing idea and a fascinating statement of fact, but I’d like to make a suggestion about another way to come up with reminders of which have been the best blog entries all year. Hopefully, this might answer the request in Chris’ comment above and Jo’s 572 comments yesterday for less factual charts and more personal preferences without having to falsify facts or switch to arbitrary choices on here (which would no doubt lead to far more complaints).

If you’re a Lib Dem blogger, please, over the next couple of weeks – no later than, say, the 25th of August, so people have time to make up their minds before the Awards nomination deadline – can you read back through the last year on your own blog and pick out your favourite pieces you’ve written?

I know it’s blowing your own trumpet; I know it’s hard work; but isn’t it the best way to make sure people notice what each blog’s been really good at?
