Created in Birmingham, behind by a Nosemonkey.

If you have been following the fight to get Created in Birmingham recognised as the UK’s best blog you might like to know that one of the other nominees has fallen on their sword.   UK Blogger Nosemonkey’s Vote for me post has been revised to say:

Update: Actually, scrap that. Vote for Created in Birmingham instead. Never heard of them before, but they seem to have the best chance of preventing mad borderline racist Daily Mail columnist Melanie Phillips from winning….let’s not have a repeat of the most idiotic maniacs ruling the roost. There’s enough of that on this here internet already, thanks very much.

So don’t let them down. Each and every day you can make Nosemonkey happy by voting for Created in Birmingham at this linkNeil Clark, The View from Here would you prefer Mel or CiB to win?

    I vote for CiB every day of course :mrgreen:
    However it would not be fun if CiB was recognised as the United Front against Malicious Mail Madwoman, and not as the positive force for a better more creative Birmingham it is.
    What would the acceptance speach be? “Ta, dont know whether or not you lot like us, get us or even know us, but you shure as shit hate Melanie”

    Mark you make a very good point. As soon as we’re ahead by a Nosemonkey I’ll switch to extolling the many, many virtues. Is this how Obama’s team felt?

    Excellently put by Mark there. I’m hoping any speech (win or lose) will be along the lines of ‘what an incredible community there is around CiB, how the heck do we return the favour?’

  4. Thanks a lot for the link to my post 🙂 (slight note, Davies is with an ‘e’, but its no biggie)

    When writing these posts its important to show the great bits of CiB, not to devalue the opposition. Whilst I understand many people may take a personal issue with CiB’s main rival in this poll, please keep the good name of CiB clean. I’d hate for the amazing community spirit which could win this for CiB be over shadowed by mud slinging.

  5. Nick Booth says:

    Thanks Daniel. I’ll change the spelling and I have to say I agree with you. The posts I’ve written since this one take much more care to point out why CiB would be a deserving winner.
