We won some award or something


One day we might win a really big award. After all, I’ve invested a full 16 entire years of my life writing posts for this website and we’ve got a team of crazed smartphone nutters travelling all over the place to bring you the latest chunks of smartphone goodness.

That’s got to be worth some big prize and a tearful speech, surely?


Well no, it doesn’t seem that way. Instead, every now and then, we win awards from some random places we’ve never really heard of. Sometimes it’s an attempt for the award-giver to get a mention on our esteemed site. Yes, fair reader, people actually give us awards just so that they’ll get a mention on our mighty website. How fickle huh?

Emails like this tend to arrive in my inbox..

Hey Webmaster!

Just wanted to let you know that you’ve won the Bob Johnson Butcher Award for best mobile blog! You can show your award on your site with this cleverly crafted image, which also includes a tracking link so that we get a hit every time it loads on your site. Well done! You do a great job!

I’m sure that’s not the case this time, oh no. “A panelist” (yes, just the one) has made us one of the Top 10 UK Mobile Blogs on the web. Yay. It comes from the people at Feedspot, which seems to be some web feed aggregation thing.

Ahhh wait, I fell into the trap didn’t I? I mentioned them. Ah, I’m sure they’re not just looking for traffic though. They wouldn’t do that to us after all the work we put into this, would they? After all, we’re in their “Top 10 UK Mobile Blogs”, and that’s pretty big isn’t it? We can be proud of that, yeah?

I mean, it’s not like they’ve got endless random categories in a paper-thin attempt to get link-juice and hits to their website, announcing as many “winning” websites as possible in as many categories as possible… is it?

So, I want to thank them for putting us into the Top 10 UK Mobile Blogs on the web, and I want to congratulate the winners in each of these other insanely-specific categories that they announced ..
