I'm delighted to announce that Skyliner won Best Individual Arts and Culture blog at the UK Blog Awards last week.
Each category had two finalists, an individual and an organisation and the organisation winners in my category were the British Museum with their Medieval Manuscripts blog, it's a real honour to be in ranked alongside them.
In 2011 Skyliner won Best City and Neighbourhood at the Manchester Blog Awards and I still see traffic coming to my site from that now so it's exciting to think how this UK-wide accolade might help the site. Already this week Skyliner has been mentioned in New York Magazine, and there's a lovely article over on Groupon about my tours. At the very least the awards has certainly given me the motivation to continue with a few new features I've been thinking of introducing since moving to a new site. So look out for some architecture and arts books reviews for starters.
Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me, and has helped me in any way over the years especially my loyal readers and collaborators especially regular photo collaborator Andrew Brooks.
