SA Blog Awards 2009

Nominations for the 2009 SA Blog Awards are now open (until 14th March) and we at 6000 miles… would appreciate your assistance in nominating this blog by clicking on the rather natty blue dog-tag thing below and following the simple instructions thereafter.


nominate this blog

You will then be asked to cast your vote – preferably for us again, please – sometime between the 14th March and the 1st April (no joking) in what could be the biggest poll that South Africa will see this year*.

We’ve done our best to keep you amused, updated, entertained and informed over the past 12 months, never shying away from big issues like Politics, Cyclists, Keith LedgerXenophobia, Brussel Sprouts, Julius Malema, Killer Viruses and Mystery Statues

You don’t have to be in South Africa to vote, unlike some elections we could mention, so please – make your mark for democracy and decent blogging by making 6000 miles… your blog of choice.

Thank you.

EDIT: Check out my annoying arrow in the sidebar. It’s annoying isn’t it?

  1. Come now dear, we already know who’s going to win. You don’t have a sad enough story 😉

    Never the less I will campaign for you again until I’m blue in the face.

    Goblin´s last blog post was: More Regrets (Note: 6000 miles… is not responsible for the content of external internet sites)

  2. Po > It are a royal we. There are two of me, so vote twice.

    Goblin > You’re right of course, but thanks for your support anyway. I nominated you, if only because I like your blog and I know it will annoy you to be nominated.

  3. Wake me up when it’s time to vote with a comment over on my blog or something 😆 Hmm may have to stick it in the controversial blog bit too! Now i’ve noticed that! Specially due to that special rapport you have with certain cyclists 😆

    Wiggy´s last blog post was: Fancy Dress outfit ordered! (Note: 6000 miles… is not responsible for the content of external internet sites)

  4. Wiggy > Thanks. Don’t worry – you’ll be reminded. 😉

    Rob > Don’t be silly. That would be corrupt and this is South Africa. We don’t go in for that kind of… oh… hang on.
    I’ll send it today.

    HH > Thank you. 😀

  5. Done – inspite of all your nasty comments about cyclists…

    Ordinarylife´s last blog post was: Yikes…. (Note: 6000 miles… is not responsible for the content of external internet sites)

  6. I felt obliged to; I rather enjoy hearing a soutie’s view on SA – a refreshing change form my experience. Pity there wasn’t a category for religion 😉

    nonsensical´s last blog post was: a dirty hotel (Note: 6000 miles… is not responsible for the content of external internet sites)

  7. OL > “in spite of”, or “Because of”?

    NS > Well, there’s always the “Most Controversial”. I’m not sure I would want to win that one though. Cyclists, God, Helen Zille etc etc – it looks like I hate everyone.

  8. I clickety’ed, but was surprised to find that you don’t consider your blog funny. Or is that a virtue (not laughing at one’s own jokes and all that). Anyway, I claimed you were funny in my nomination.

    Jacques´s last blog post was: Student response to Sax Appeal blasphemy (Note: 6000 miles… is not responsible for the content of external internet sites)

  9. Jacques > For every person who says my blog is funny, another 17 promise to string me up and chop my bits off.
    5.88% ain’t going to swing any poll.
    Well – maybe the Western Cape – who knows….
