Intention to adopt!

Through the wonders of Google Reader's "recommended feed", I was reading Splotchy just now. And I therefore heard about a new worthy cause that is surely worth promoting, even in the face of stiff competition from today's Comic Relief. Splotchy encourages all bloggers to adopt-an-actor. While I was sad to see that Victor Garber (of Godspell and Legally Blonde fame) recently found his forever family and so I am unable to rehouse him here, I did spot another deserving candidate.

So I herein announce my intention to adopt Bradley Whitford

Blogging award plea

I'm publicizing one of the candidates for Best UK Blog in the Weblog Awards, partly because the blog is doing an excellent service for creative types in Birmingham, partly because it's run by a friend of a friend, and partly because the main competitor in this category is a woman whose views (as aired on Radio 4's Moral Maze and in her journalism for papers including the Daily Mail and the Spectator) are anathema to me. All support would be welcome before voting closes on Tuesday.

Your help is needed! Created in Birmingham has been nominated for Best UK Blog 2008 in the 2008 Weblog Awards ( Your support would mean that a truly worthy blog gets the recognition it deserves for its work to promote the fantastic creative talent and related activities in Birmingham.

Voting takes just a couple of seconds – visit vote for Created in Birmingham. You can vote once every 24 hours per computer. Voting closes at 10pm GMT on Tuesday 13th January.

Please forward this email to any friends, colleagues or contacts! Thank you - your support is very much appreciated.
