  • Thanks for the mention! I try my hardest to serve the online readership, especially considering it’s in my own time and entirely voluntary, so this award is fantastic recognition for all my late nights and early mornings, all the weekends sat at the computer, and all the laptop blogging while on holiday in German, Vienna and other places! Re the comment on interactivity – I do have comment sections and regular opinion polls and if you have any ideas or suggestions, contact me via the blog’s ‘about me’ link and I will pass them on to the technies who are in charge of blog design and functionality.

  • and thanks for your comment, David. I didn’t mean to detract from your moment of glory (congratulations on the gold) but thought it was worth flagging up the room for further digital improvements at regional level – perhaps more papers using your blogging style for regional news / local information, which really would mobilise the local communities online and perhaps incorporate video / online debate / links to social media. There could be so much more of what you’re doing country-wide. And awards that recognise digital content to be judged alongside print categories, not just advertising ones. The fact that you do this in your own time and voluntarily is very commendable on your part, but not how it should be – papers need to start investing in blogs if they want them to work. By the way, I don’t suppose you have a link to the Scotsman blog do you?
