Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s that time of year again – The Manchester Blog Awards are here and there’s less than 24 hours before voting closes.

Unfortunately, I’ve not had a chance to go over all of the nominations this year (unlike the 2009 Manchester Blog Awards), but there’s one blog in particular that I think deserves your votes.

Tom Mason’s 330 Words

As you may remember, Tom was kind enough to provide a guest post on guest posting, but that’s not the reason that I think 330 Words deserves your votes for both Best New Blog and Best Writing on a Blog. The reason is that it’s the standout candidate for the award.

The Concept

Every copywriting blog you’ll read tells you to be brief. 330 Words, as you may have guessed by the title, requires that submissions tell a story in a mere three hundred and thirty words. Or less.

Brevity requires superb writing.330 Words is all about brevity. Ergo, 330 Words is a display of superb writing and deserves your vote.

The Authors

All the other blogs on display are labours of love from a single blogger. 330 Words isn’t. It’s a showcase of writing talent in of itself, featuring submissions from a wide selections of authors (Not me though, I’m awful at fiction. And poetry.).

The Manchester Blog Awards was set up to display the very best work of the city’s bloggers. A vote for 330 Words allows you to reward more talented bloggers than any other vote. Show some local pride.

I Promised Tom I’d Plug It

Alright, it might not be the best reason, but I did say that I’d drum up a few votes. Go on. He didn’t make the cut for the Manchester Beard Calendar, and it’ll cheer him up.

(288 Words. Not counting these. Too short for 330 Words)

Once you’ve given Tom your vote, why not check out one of my guest posts? “Six Ways You’re Cheating Your Blog’s Readers” over at ShoutMeLoud.
