Arsenal FC Blog lovers – Please vote for me!

Arsenal FC Blog LogoThe Soccerlens blogging awards for 2009 are to being decided – and I would absolutely love, love, love it if you could vote for the Arsenal FC Blog.

I don’t normally worry too much about blogging awards but the Soccerlens awards certainly have some prestige about them and it would be a great to win one as a reward for three-and-a-half years of hard work.

The nominations for the awards are based completely on the number of votes that the public give so I would dearly love it if you could help out. Think of the children!

There are 17 categories for the Soccerlens awards:

  • Best Writer

  • Best Gossip Site

I’ve highlighted the categories that I feel the Arsenal FC Blog could be voted and I would be so grateful if you could do that for me. Only if you actually think it’s the best, mind you!

And for the record for those that don’t know – my name is Andrew Weber (not Spanish Fry anymore!) and this is the Arsenal FC Blog.

My votes

Just for the record these are the sites I will be voting for (I don’t have one for every category):

Go check out some of those sites if you get the chance to – they’re very, very good.

That’s really it. If you need any further information on the Soccerlens awards click here.

As I said before I’d really appreciate it if you could vote for my blog in these awards and hopefully your support will be enough to get a nomination (if not win one).

Cheers in advance for your support.

    I honestly have to spread the love. I gave you best writer and best community, Andy. 🙂 But had to get Third Gen a vote (best team site), Arseblogger (best podcast) and Tony Attwood (best team writer).

    The Arsenal Universe really is populated by some wonderfully talented and dedicated folks, and we’re all fortunate for your work.

    I do kind of agree with guli, I think that the colors on the crest should change..

    @ SKA – Some good love-spreading there. Thanks mate.

    @ american – It’s a fair argument, one that many people have said, but I like it. The thing I keep going back to is that this is the Arsenal FC Blog, not Arsenal FC, so there needed to be a clear distinction between the two.

    You can read an explanation of the logo colours etc here:

    Hi Andy,
    Long time no comment for me but i do still read your blog regularly so ive voted you in for your 4 nominated categories. Amongst my other votes i included the fantasy premier league for best online & noticed you didnt. It was this blog that got me into it in the 1st place, lol. Shame that no category for shirt burning……..

    I’m astonished noone has made a joke about the “Best Babe Site”-category yet. 🙂

    have voted for you good sir.
    in most categories.

    untold arsenal in one and wrighty 7 in one and the majority for this blog.

    Hey – you voted for me. That’s amazing.

    Really, I am knocked out by that, thanks so much.

    The only thing we need now is to have an award for the best Arsenal book of the year and then I could nominate “Making the Arsenal” – but perhaps that would be cheating.

    Seriously, it is so kind of you to nominate me in the best writer award. I am almost blushing.

    there is no doubt that Alan Davies’ podcast is the best around!

    @ Shambo – Tony’s is Untold Arsenal. Click the link in the post

    @ Tony – No problem. I’m being honest. You bring something completely different to the Arsenal blogosphere and I want to recognise that.

    Thanks to everyone else!
