Nomination into the finals of the 2012 Bloggies was unexpected.
Winning European blog of the year is almost as much of a surprise as…
“I waved the first three in and bid them head through to the sitting room, where there was less of an chill near the woodburner. Then they kept coming, being introduced by the lead detective from Norfolk as they trooped in. I thought I’d been chosen to host the secret policemen’s ball or something.”
Rog is away on holiday, the co-moderator writes:- Roger Tattershall has worked hard on his blog managing to walk a line of tolerance, hopefully showing how discussion of a contentious topic can be done, combined with a shining interest in solar matters.
A year ago, January 2011, right in the award period for 2011,
The three day workshop is entitled “Conflict Resolution in Climate Science”
This event is being hosted by the European Commission Joint research Centre’s Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.”
Roger is on a short backpack holiday in Spain, asleep I hope and I know he will be sleeping poorly… he admitted to superstition by refusing to write two blog posts, one for winning and one for losing. No worries Rog, I would too.
It’s been a privilege and interesting to be allowed to co-moderate.
I am writing this without direct knowledge of the result but others have posted the winners. Apologies for being unable to thank the runners up, I do not know who came where. To be added.
Last but not least, those who nominated Tallbloke’s Talkshop and then those who took the trouble vote in the final, each one of you played a part, thank you.
Maybe our friend helped
