Primelocation property blog awards - placed again!
Now in their third year, the main award has been won previously by yours truly and the much respected property journalist Graham Norwood. This years winner is another journalist, Roger Hunt, you can see his excellent blog here.
I'm delighted to say that A little drop of Cognac was "placed" for the third year running. I wrote "House prices - will Google ruin your dinner party?" back in the summer and the judges decided that this particular entry was worthy of the runner-up spot.
I guess the thing I am most thrilled about is the consistency - a win and two runners-up in the three years that the awards have been running is no mean feat. Being ultra cynical I write the blog in order to win business and to position myself as being an expert in both French property matters and in local issues pertinent to life here in the Charente. The awards give added authority (and perhaps even a much needed gravitas) to what are some quite personal and parochial postings.
Anyway, I'm thrilled that my work is recognised and will do my utmost to justify the award.
Here's to the 2012 competition.....
