    Thanks, but seeing as I have 2 awards I would like to give one to Christopher, he works very hard to maintain this blog and is always polite and helpful.

      Jonny. You have worked very hard for the blog, and your participation and efforts seem to be growing by the month. Technology Bloggers would not be the same without you.

      I very much appreciate your offer to give me one of your awards, however as I said in the article, I made the awards, so this year I am not taking one. Next year however, I hope the awards will be democratic, hence it would be possible for me to be a nominee too.

      Well done Jonny, lets keep up our great work in 2012 :-)

      P.S Looking forward to the rest of your series!

    Brilliant post — It’s a great slant on acknowledging others in your field.

    I am honoured to have been included in the list of nominees, especially with so many worthy people. A huge credit must go to Christopher for his tireless work with the blog. Well done.

    I wish you, and everyone else, great success for 2012.

    Christopher,

    Thank you for nominating me in these first-ever awards. Congratulations to the nominees and winners–they have all contributed to the success of this blog.

    And I agree with others that you deserve an award. You have done so much work to start this blog and line up the great contributors and attract commenters. The blog has enjoyed great success in its first year, and much of that is due to your efforts.

      Your kindness is appreciated Lillie, maybe next year when I hope to have democratic awards I may be in with a chance ;-)

      Happy 2012!
      Christopher

    I’m rolling on the carpet laughing… not good at my age…

    The “in joke”? Well, I found this blog by accident when googling good-English-related topics, and up came the comment policy for this blog. I’m an ex-teacher, so a bit fussy about spelling and grammar.

    So now I read, “Goodwin writes pleasat and friendly comments…” I was just about to groan, when I realised the subtle in-joke.

    (It was a joke. I’m sure it was a joke. My New Year’s resolution is to think the best of people…)

      Goodwin you are a worthy nominee, I only apologise that I missed the ‘n’ out of pleasant, it was not done out of humour, although it could have been!
      All corrected now :-)

      Well done again!
      Christopher

        Honourably confessed, Christopher!

        May I just take this opportunity to say, “Hear, hear!”, to David’s comment, “A huge credit must go to Christopher for his tireless work with the blog. “

    Surprise to see my name there and thank you so much for giving away such great award to me. I think it is fair that we have voting for next after announcing the nominations. People like Christopher would not award yourself for an award, would you? ;)

    If TB is a success for 2011, I would give all the credit to Christopher for administrating the entire site and also the effort to connect all the writers here. I wish the best to TB for 2012. So…what’s the resolution for TB in 2012?

    Alexa Ranking: Less than 10k ?
    Google PR: 5 ?
    Number of Writers: 20 over ?
    Number of Articles: 250 over ?

    Am I setting things too high here? ^_^

      “If TB is a success for 2011, I would give all the credit to Christopher” – Wow wow wow Alan!
      “I would give all the credit to Christopher” – I may deserve some credit, but it really is people like you that make this blog a success, after all, you can’t have a community with one person!

      “Alexa Ranking: Less than 10k ?” – I would settle for 25k ;-)
      “Google PR: 5 ?” – 5 would be good :-)
      “Number of Writers: 20 over ?” – We currently have 28, but that’s not what matters, what matters is what we write…
      “Number of Articles: 250 over ?” – We currently have 146 published, so that shouldn’t be too hard, the thing is I would rather have us post 100 fantastic posts rather than 300 bland/mediocre posts, if you know what I mean :-)

      Thanks again Alan
      Christopher

      Well it’s not really me Angel, I am just one piece in the jigsaw :-)

      Everyone deserves thanks anyway :-)

      Happy New Year to you too, and welcome to the community!

    Wow, Top Commenter?

    Never really been a top commenter on any blog. Like you said I do not comment much but that’s not because I don’t like commenting. I just don’t like adding a comment when I think there’s not much to say. Comments like, “good post” and things like that are not really good by me.

    If you have awarded me this prestigious prize for that reasoning then who is me to refuse it! :)

    Christopher, I appreciate you and every other contributors on the Technology Bloggers Community Blog. Keep up the good work you’re doing here. Wishing you the best of 2012.

      Chadrack, that is exactly why you won, you comment only when you feel you have something to contribute, and when you do contribute, it usually adds a lot of value :-)

      Well done, and thanks for the praise, our community really is fantastic!

      All the best.
      Christopher
