Swanny & JamesAnd so, last night I took myself off to Shoreditch House for the *Computer Weekly *IT Blog Awards. This is the second year that we’ve run these, and the first that we’ve actually had an awards night at the end, I believe. And what good fun it was. Drinks, chat, CW web editor James Garner in full-on Bruce Forsyth mode, and Leila Gilley, our newly-appointed community manager for Estates Gazette (pictured above with Brucie James), snagging one of the awards for her site Girls’n’Gadgets.

I think it was particularly satisfying for me, because for the first time I really saw the multi-pronged blog strategy in, as it were, the flesh. We had CW journalists [who]( [blog]( there, alongside industry experts who [we got blogging]( for the first time on the site, along with skilled existing bloggers who have come into the fold, including social technologist [Suw Charman-Anderson](, who has taken over [The Social Enterprise blog]( (as per my [rather cryptic post]( and [Hermione Way](, who’s using her video skills on the new [Computer Geekly videos](
Only took us three years to get there… 
There’s [a full list of winners]( on the site, along with [photos of them all](
