Nuffnang Regional Blog Awards 2009

Congratulations to Christie at Childhood 101 who won the best parenting blog at the Nuffnang Regional Blog Awards 2009. Other Aussie winners on the evening were Mr Gadget for best geek blog and Lady Melbourne for best fashion blog.

It wasn’t until I arrived in Singapore and started meeting and talking to other bloggers from the region that I realised just quite how big blogging is in Asia. It is a whole other world compared to how blogging is seen in Australia! Lots of the bloggers are mini celebrities with significant followings and media coverage.

Nuffnang have put in a tremendous amount of work to make this event quite special for us bloggers, so I would like to say a big thank you to the Nuffnang staff. Today we had a full day tour with other Aussie and Malaysian bloggers. We were able to see so much of Singapore in quite a short space of time!

Before the winner of each category was announced, they put together a montage of the nominees which was fun to watch. This was the one for the parenting blogs:
