blog Hide the food wrappers under your desk, sit up straight in your chair, and triple-check the spelling on your posts as you wander through Delimiter‘s textual riches: according to the Australian Writers’ Centre (AWC), you are currently reading one of Australia’s best blogs.
This isn’t just empty braggadocio: Delimiter has been named as one of five finalists in the AWC’s Best Australian Blogs 2013 Competition, which recognises excellence in Australian blogging and brings together entrants in categories including commentary, lifestyle/hobby, personal and parenting, business, and words and writing.
I note with amusement that the image accompanying the blog was clearly taken during my week-and-a-bit helming Delimiter, although I rather suspect that our collective mutual friend, Renai LeMay, might also have had just a little bit to do with the honour :-).
As, most certainly, do you, dear readers: I don’t think I’m stating it wrong when I say that we all come to Delimiter for the amazing coverage, and stay for the amazing community.
Before you scoff: securing a berth as a finalist is no small achievement: 1122 different blogs were nominated for the competition, and Delimiter is one of just 25 finalists.
Winners will be announced next Wednesday, 1 May. Voting for the companion People’s Choice Award remains open through Tuesday, 30 April.
