Tasteful self-congratulation

I’ve found from long experience that if you don’t promote yourself no-one else is likely to do it for you. So it is with great pleasure that I note Troppo has been awarded the gong by Crikey as it’s Best Blog of the Year. I’m usually not a great believer in awards, especially not the ones where readers vote for their favourite choice. But I have a high regard for the crew at Crikey, and I cerrtainly can’t argue with their taste in blog reading!!!

In fact, the award is far more a testimony to Nicholas Gruen’s wit, wisdom and prolific output given my own patchy posting over the last 6 months or so. Well done too to all the other occasional Troppo contributors, not to mention our loyal and frequently erudite band of commenters. A Happy Christmas to all of us!!!

Ken, are you saying that Troppo has gruen up or you are gruen with envy?

“Erudite” doesn’t even begin to describe your comments. In fact I’m not sure a word even exists. If only Crikey had a Punner of the Year award, you’d win it by a country mile. Happy Christmas!

Congratulations to Ken and the team.

But can the estimable Sophie be persuaded to return to blogging? I sorely miss her posts.

Can the estimable Homer be persuaded to return to his proper name?
