New Conservative Movement Awards Launched

Conservative readers of this blog should go and take a look at the new Conservative Movement awards being launched by ConservativeHome. Seems like a good idea as a networking event for the Conservative movement as much as anything.

At the moment they are discussing the categories. I would suggest that it will be important to include best newcomer in many of the categories. While these are the inaugural awards I think there is still a function to noting those who are less well established. A balance needs to be struck between giving the huge blogs like Iain Dale and Guido Fawkes the awards they deserve but also giving real amateurs something to play for.

Guido isn't even a Conservative, and is actually a Lib Dem member.

The problem with this is that not everyone will agree (like most things) and therefore if a really obscure blog is chosen, then there will be complaints.

I think for most of the Blogs down at ground level, the best that can be hoped for is to be nominated.

That in iƟtself will raise a blog's profile.
