I’m happy to announce RennyBA’s Terella as the winner of the bronze medal in The 2007 Weblog Awards in category Best European Blog (Non UK). A few minutes ago, I received my third-place winner badge as you can see on the sidebar.

I’ve just landed from my trip to Milan and it’s almost two hours after midnight in Norway, so please come back tomorrow and I’ll tell you about this whole Weblog Awards week of mine. Here is the list for the 10 finalist:

I am in Milan, Italy on a business trip and meeting fellows from Computer Societies around the whole Europe who are running the EUCIP IT-Professional Certification Program. So please don’t expect me to update regularly – its just that it is lunch brake right now LoL

  1. Yes, it really is an honor to be a finalist. I hope you get millions of votes – besides mine ;-)
    Great campaign you’re doing. I’m not doing much field work. No energy left and I have no chance against the big ones anyway :-)

    I’m glad we agreed we are competing ‘together’ and not against each other – It’s an honor to be nominated in the same category as you!
    Wish you good luck too Captain :-)

  2. Congratulations! Brgds, Helle Solvang, Østlandstyret, Dataforeningen

    Thanks Helle – nice to have support from The Norwegian Computer Society too!

  3. Ok I hope I have been able to keep my friendship with both you and the Capt! I have casted my vote once for each. Not fair to have to choose should be able to vote for both! Good luck!

    But of course Debbie – A-Team cruisers are friends and will always be. As both me and Capt. have said: we are not competing against each other, but together and both proud of being in the same category.

  4. Congratulations!

    Excellent work! Win it!

    Thanks for your compliment – I will, I hope :-)

  5. Hi,
    I’ve had a look around your site and would be interested in exchanging links with you. If this is of interest, please do get in contact.
    Best Wishes,

    Thanks for your visit and compliments! Please forgive me, but since I’m very busy and on my way to Milan for the rest of the week, I’ll have to wait and get back to you in the weekend!

  6. Congratulations! You have really great, wonderfful site!
    It’s my pleasure to vote.
    Good luck!

  7. wow.. Congratulations! this is awesome RennyBA.. I have a few of you friends who made it to the finalist, so I am going to say I wish you all my bests… hope one of the blogs I read on a regular basis wins :)

    Thanks Pearl – extra nice to get so much support from a regular reader too of course – knew I could count on you! I hope the same of course :)

  8. Hi Renny,
    tried again this afternoon, but problems with loading the page. I’ll try again from Miami. OK?

    PS. I was told by a colleague you were on the breakfast TV – about the Nomination. Hurray – that’s great my friend. You are the runner up. Do as Rosenborg yesterday.

    Thanks TorAa – a vote from a Norwegian in Miami would be great you know!
    Yes I was a gust on ‘Good Morning Norway’ on national TV yesterday morning – quite exciting.
    Wish you a great trip!

  9. Congratulations! With the nomination and all the positive coverage. You have my vote:-)

    Thanks for your compliments and support!

  10. Lidt udenfor pointet, men efter mange politiske diskussioner har vi fundet et problem i forholdet mellem norske og danske politiske partier

    Hvad er egentlig højre og hvad er egentlig venstre?

    De danske parliamentariske ledere, venstre, skriver om dem selv på deres hjemmeside (quote) “Det undrer mange, hvorfor Venstre hedder ‘Venstre’, når partiet ligger til højre i dansk politik”

    I Norge ville dette have været højre???

  11. Wow, congratulations, Renny. I’ve been voting for you!

    By the way, how is Diane’s mom?

    Thanks – great to have support from down under too you know!
    She is fine under the circumstances and home from the hospital – thanks for asking.

  12. Congratulations! Gratulere =) Hehe
    Stemte på deg, kjempe fin blog du har !

    Thank you! Tusen takk (in Norwegian =)

  13. I can’t figure out the Vander, there’s hardly any reader…at least you can’t tell from the comments….so how come he’s got that many votes?

  14. Anyway: congratulations with the third place! Obviously first is what really counts, but hey, both of us in the top three, that’s not bad. Not bad at all.

    You’re running a good blog here by the way.

    So congrats with the second place then! To me it counts a lot to be listed among the ten finalists.
    Your running a great blog too – I have to look in details later as its one hour past midnight in Milan, Italy where I am. So good night – see you later in blogsphere!

  15. I’ll say congratulations to you already Renny, for doing so good, but we haven’t seen the end result yet, so we don’t know in which place you came. They have to check everything.

    You know, last year, one of the winner in one category were disqualified for cheating with the votes! And from several finalists they did withdraw different amount of votes which were somehow “wrong”.

    They have several different ways of checking it, that’s why they don’t announce the winner at once.

    So we don’t know for sure yet which place you ended up at :-)

    I’ll have a Ship Launch Party Friday afternoon-evening, so come along and smash a bottle of Dom with the cruisers :-P

  16. Teena: yes it’s closed.

    Randy: thanks for the response. Appreciate the kind words. As I said, you’re running a great blog yourself. I’ve added you to my blogroll and… hopefully we’ll cross swords next year again! ;)

  17. Just wanted to let you know, I will be away from my usual commenting for 2 weeks. I’ll be cruising the Panama Canal and I hope to be able to Blog from there. (But you never know!) Check out starting Tuesday for two weeks and you never know what you might find!
    See you when I get back.

  18. Congratulations on your Bronze medal, Renny, it’s well deserved.
    Are you going to party now??

    Thanks for yours and every others massive support and your votes – I am so grateful!
    I’ve just coming home from Milan and try to catch up – there will be a celebration post later on today :-)

  19. Sometimes I get upset because I dont understand why people get certain awards like this, but in this case you SO deserve it! I am very happy to know that you got something well deserved (but it would be the Gold medal in my book!) Congrats!

  20. Michael van der Galiën is an idiot, don’t worry, he gets his traffic by trafficking in hate speech. For instance, he claim to fame is his denial of the Armenian Genocide where 1.5 Million Armenians were wiped out from today’s Turkey. Michael van der Galiën would be arrested in certain countries for his hate speech, I am sure he is not visiting France or Switzerland any time soon.

  21. I just felt I needed to drop in and mention hello to everyone. I needed to acquaint myself, my name is Keith.

    I determined to post now because I think message board as a whole is very useful and cozy place. I appreciate looking at all of the themes and posts here and considering that I don’t post much, I decided to make my very initial thread.

    I just created my first website and felt the need to share it with all and get some constructive feedback.

    The website is – computer repair
