TIMJ Win Wales Blog Award for ‘Best Technology Blog’.

Posted on by Andy Corrigan

In an exciting night for the site, This Is My Joystick was named winner of the “Best Technology Blog” category at the Wales Blog Awards 2011, held in the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff on the 27th of October. We managed to beat previous winner TechBeast and Apptacious, the latter which, coincidentially, is run by TIMJ Staff Writer Mark Crowle-Groves.

The guys at Rant Media were on hand to present the award to TIMJ Site Manager Ray Willmott, citing ‘good insight into the gaming industry’ and ‘interesting content’ as the reasons for taking home the honours.

Ray said:
“It was a real thrill accepting the award and everyone seemed happy we won. All I could think is how proud I was of the team, of all the work we’ve done, and how hard we’ve all worked to achieve this. The award would be impossible without their efforts and it was a real privilege for me to accept this on behalf of the site, being an ambassador for us on this night and bringing home good news.”
