As I subsequently found out, so too did every other Australian blogger - and sadly, I didn't make the shortlist for any of their specific categories. I assume this is because the penwork of a chronically insecure, attention-seeking journalist with a fondness for theatrics and an almost unhealthy obsession with the song "Africa" by Toto doesn't really fall into the categories of Lifestyle, Business, Commentary or Writing.
But no matter. I'm still in the running for the People's Choice award. Mind you, so are about 500 other people, all of them worthy. I guess that means I'll have to take down these worthy, talented writers with the gutter tactic of tacky self-pimping.
So! If you like dropping by Girl Clumsy Dot Com, and you are in possession of a finger that can initiate mouse clicks with a minimum of physical exertion, then I urge you to vote in the People's Choice section. They're listed in alphabetical order, so I'm about four pages in under "T" for "The Bruising Adventures of Girl Clumsy".
