You guys are brilliant, just brilliant!

So, we’re on the map, and it’s all thanks to you.

[For the first time in the history of this blog, I, Juno, am interrupting my co-blogger, The Terrible Muriel, pictured, left, to put in my two cents' worth.]

Salmagundi has made it into the finals of the SA Blog Awards, in the ‘Best Original Writing on a South African Blog’ category. Thankyou thankyou thankyou, with many bowings and grovellings, for taking the time to nominate us. (And for those of you who also nominated Scrumptious, Juno’s food blog, and Tony Park’s Getaway travel blog in the three you had to come up with – mazeltov! They’re also in the finals!)

[Hoor, hoor!]

Now you have to be kind and industrious all over again, and vote for us. Ask your friends, beg your aunties and uncles, bribe your kids, exchange getting-coffee favours with your colleagues… do whatever it takes to get ticks against our li’l box. How cool would it be if we got placed (or, and I can hardly bear to think about this… won?.

[What do you say we share the twenty-ront first prize with all our 2 million fans, Mur? ]

There it is, on the right of this screen. Do it. Just do it.

[May I point you in the direction of some of the posts that I think truly illustrate the depth, originality and hilarity of Muriel's writing over the past year?

First, her hilarious posts about her travels in England and Scotland ('Travels with Muriel') . Click here to read them.

Second, Wine makes mummy clever, and other lies we tell our children

Third, A Fine and Beautiful Wedding

Fourth, The Unabashed Avarice of the US Embassy
