Vote for Me in the Best Australian Blogs 2012 Competition- Yes I’m a Hypocrite, Kinda…

Those who follow me will know from recent comments that I think, for the most part, that writing competitions are the domain of the left, with the majority of writers falling that side of the political centre.

You would also note that I said that I didn’t go into writing for the acknowledgement that winning a literary prize brings and that remains true in a way. I write to express a point of view and would be happy, winner of a gong or not, to  continue meandering down the path that I have set for myself in the writing game.

I acknowledge that by putting myself out there as a nominee in the Best Australian Blogs 2012 Competion, that I am in some way the hypocrite I have always hoped I never would be.

I first found out about the Best Australian Blogs 2012 Competition when a follower of mine on Twitter suggested that I and another writer of the same political hue enter the competition just a little while back. At first I thought twice about it, given my recent thoughts on such matters, but then I thought, “why not?”, put yourself out there as an alternative to the usual writers who hail from the opposite side of the political spectrum.

I fully expect not to win the award, my writing has a way to go and my ideological predisposition is a stumbling block, but if you think that I should win the Best Australian Blogs 2012 People’s Choice Award, then you are more than welcome to vote for me if you enjoy reading what I have to say as an alternative to the majority of prose out there.

To vote, go to and find my blog, AussiePollies on the first page with the URL next to it.
