Blimey. Never in the 6 years that I’ve been running this blog did I think what happened tonight was going to happen!
Every year, the Australian Web Industry Association holds a set of awards to recognise the skills of web developers across Australia, with the goal of helping to foster innovation on the Web, and to generally set the bar of quality in producing content and services for clients. There are multiple categories in the Web Awards, spanning from Education sites, to commercial projects to government services, to general social media.
This year, I decided to enter my blog, TimOliver.com.au under the ‘Personal’ category of the Web Awards. I thought that this would be a good opportunity to see how this blog would compare against other potential entries, and at the very least, it would let me know what areas of the site might still need improving. I also thought it’d be great motivation for me to fix a few outstanding bugs in the theme code too.
