I am still recovering from the delight and shock of Thesilvervoice making the shortlist in two different categories for the Littlewoods Ireland Blog Awards 2016 and renewed thanks to all my supporters and readers who make keeping the blog so worthwhile.
Thesilvervoice has been shortlisted in the Personal list in EDUCATION & SCIENCE and in ARTS & CULTURE categories. This blog originated under the watchful and critical eye of a younger family member and is testament to intergenerational learning, a concept dear to my heart for the potential it has to change lives and have a positive effect on the lives of older people – as indeed it has on mine. It is therefore a very special and particular delight to be shortlisted in the same category as my mentor. This, plus the fact that several of my favourite bloggers feature in the same categories, means I am conflicted on how to use my one vote per category!
Voting has now opened and will continue until midnight Irish time on Tuesday next, August 23rd. 20% of the votes come from readers, so if you would like to vote for me in either or both categories, please click here or on the icon in the sidebar to the right. And thank you very much indeed!
