About a week ago I noticed some incoming links from Computer I assumed that someone had commented on one of my posts, so I browsed there wondering if it was a positive or negative comment. Once the page loaded, I was completely surprised. It turns out that this blog has been short-listed for the Computer IT Blog Awards! This came as a complete surprise to me.

This blog had really humble beginnings. In fact it was not even my idea to start a blog, it was my work that encouraged me to start one. Initially I felt that I did not have that much to contribute to the world at large. In fact I still don’t feel that my blog is as innovative as some others, although judging by the response to my ‘Routing In Rails Tutorial‘ it appears as if I do have a nice way of explaining things. I guess this is one of the main reasons I have been voted onto the shortlist.

The competition ends on the 31st of July 2008. If you would like to vote please go to this on-line voting page. This blog can be found under the ‘Programming and technical blogs’ drop-down list. It is a surprisingly painless exercise, it takes less then a minute and no registration is required.

Thank you to all of you who have voted for this blog.
