Ten days ago nominations were called for the inaugural Southern Cross Catholic Digital Media Awards. I wasn’t aware of this until nominations were closed, and nominees were announced today.

I’m a bit embarrassed that this blog has been nominated in the Most Inspiring category. I don’t set out to inspire, but evidently at least one reader has been inspired. I suppose I should be grateful to God, not embarrassed!

You can’t help your gut responses, but nor should you give them unthinking assent. In this case, I’m publicising the nomination, and the awards, because there are many excellent nominees who deserve wide exposure. Some, I had never heard of. Others are old favourites. I recommend you discover them all for yourself.

You can review the nominations at restlesspress.net. Voting closes at midnight New Zealand time, on 31 January.
