Huge Congrats to Mark Thompson - Lib Dem Blogger of the Year

Many many congratulations to Mark Thompson who won the Blog of the Year prize last night at Lib Dem Conference, for his always thought provoking and brilliantly written blog 'Mark Reckons'

Runners up were Caron Lindsay for Caron's Musings, who must surely win the prize some day soon, Neil Monnery for The Rambles of Neil Monnery which I always enjoy reading, and er, me, dragging everyone down to my level.

Other winners on the night were;

Best new Liberal Democrat blog (started since 1st September 2011)
The Libertine, edited by Morgan Griffith-David

Best blog from a Liberal Democrat holding public office (The Tim Garden Award)
A Lanson Boy by Cllr Alex Folkes (Launceston Central)

The Andrew Reeves award for Best use of social media/e-campaigning by a Liberal Democrat
Bears for Belarus by Liberal Youth

Best non-Liberal Democrat politics blog
Everyday Sexism

It was a huge treat to be nominated and I got to meet many fellow bloggers at the star studded gala awards do - my only regret was that I missed Caron, who hopefully I will actually get to meet soon!!

Many congrats to all and especially Mark - a worthy winner!
