I’m in a self-indulgent mood this morning so indulge me for a few moments, will you? The first reason is that this blog has recently turned two – last Sunday was me birthday, like – and so you can expect me to start kicking and screaming and f-ing and blinding at any minute over the smallest possible incident. Well, more than usual at any rate.
The second reason why I’m feeling a little pompous this morning is that I have, apparently, made it through the Irish Blog Awards nomination list and I’m now on the 2009 longlist in the Sport and Recreation Category (with thanks to Boards.ie – they said to mention that). There’s still another cull to come, as the longlist becomes the shortlist, so I’m not feeling overly conceited yet. Just a little bit more than usual, that’s all.
Then, just when I needed some calming down, I discovered that the Mayo News only went and published extracts from my match report last Sunday in this week’s edition under the guise of a “Blogger’s View”. They never told me in advance they were going to do this, mind, but, media whore that I am, I can’t help but bask in this tiny sliver of fame. (Thanks, by the way to my fellow Mayo GAA blogger No One Shouted Stop! for tipping me off about this – it’s your turn next, sunshine).
Right, that’s it. I think I need to lie down for a while now to let the swelling subside.
