There is some circle-jerk blogging competition going on called the Irish Blog Awards or something like that and I’ve been nominated in the Specialist category. I don’t really care about what happens to my blog in there because I am too cool to worry about such things. They haven’t even e-mailed me about including my blog, the cheek of them. You could go over and vote for me though, not that I really care either…wait a second. This thing is going being decided by a panel of judges and not by popular vote? Oh right then. Err-hum
Welcome Irish Blog Awards judges to The Cart Driver. I am delighted and humbled to have been nominated for such a prestigious event and their panel of highly capable and, if you don’t mind, quite beautiful/handsome (delete whichever appropriate) judges who will be overseeing the event. I would like to offer you a guide as to why I am deserving of such an award.
First, it might be strange to see a blog such as this in a competition for Irish blogs while I talk about Asian cartoons. However I have always remained an Irish man first and foremost, never abandoning my heritage and staying true to my people and my family in the Emerald Isle.
Most of the posts on this fantastic blog are reviews of these wonderful cartoons. I am calm and patient reviewer who takes each scene on it’s own merits and doesn’t overreact when little aspects of the show don’t go the way I had envisioned them.
Despite having reviewed many different series over the years, I remain good humoured throughout my posts. One point I try to make in particular is not to repeat myself with ideas I put through in previous reviews and approach everything I watch with an open mind.
When it comes to reviews, I believe one of the most important things is to always keep your mind on the product you are reviewing yourself. I will refrain from making any comments about fandom, especially making sure to refrain from insulting any potential readers. I am far too kind a person to partake in such hate mongering.
I’m a highly original blogger. I am certainly the only blog in the Irish Blog Awards that writes strictly about anime, but even in the anime blogging community I am well known for original ideas and not shamefully ripping off other bloggers ideas and passing them as my own.
I do try to contribute back to the anime blogging community as well. I even ran a competition similar to that of the Irish Blog Awards called the Aniblog Tourney. Needless to say it was very well received amongst the anime community.
As you can see, I am a highly established and quality blogger, with plenty of fans. Even with the vast repertoire of knowledge you judges must have, it is still possible that you may not have heard of The Cart Driver. A quick look at the comment sections would reveal that I am indeed a man in high standing and undisputed talent.
