I'm the Hen Ferchetan. This is my take on the world through the eyes of Wales. While mostly about Welsh politics (that most famous of dour topics!) I try to scatter some humour around, but I doubt anyone but me will find it funny! Have a read, and if it bores you then feel free to never come back!

Get Voting

The Welsh Blog Index has been a good friend to the Hen Ferchetan by sending a lot of readers over here every day. I'll take this opportunity then to "big up" the WBI's annual Blog awards...
Please email me your nominations at welshblogindex@hotmail.co.uk.

Nominations will close at 12.00pm on August 31st with the winners announced on September 1st.

The categories are:

Best Politicians Blog
Best Media Blog
Best Other (i.e. not media or Politicians) Blog
Best Welsh Language Blog
Best Newcomer (for blogs that were established after the last awards of August 15th 2007)
Most Improved Blog

Adam Price has stiff competition for the Politicans Blog while Vaughan Roderick is probably odds-on to retain his media crown. Having recently retired from blogging Normal Mouth will need a successor for the Best other while Annibyniaeth i Gymru may struggle to retain the Welsh language award following the birth of a glut of new blogs in the old language. Best Newcomer and Most Improved blogs are new awards for this year.

I've sent in my votes, but I won't try and influence you with my choices!

Have you e-mailed them about it? As you said it's a very good aggrefator and it's a shame if a popular blog like yours doesn;t feed into it
