Exercise your democratic right – vote Donut

The good web guide awards{{}}Here at Donut Towers we don’t normally go in for self-congratulation. We enjoy our work, prefer to get on with it quietly and take seriously the responsibility we have to help new and established businesses, which, at the end of the day, is what it’s all about.

Personally, one of many things I enjoy about editing the Start Up Donut is reading the many favourable comments people send us or leave behind on our pages. I’m sure my Donut colleagues feel the same way. We’re all greatly encouraged by the record number of visitors we now attract, which continues to grow month on month.

But occasionally other things happen that really make you realise just how much people appreciate the Donut sites and really “get” what we do.

So we were all chuffed to bits to hear recently that Start up Donut has been shortlisted for the Website of the Year awards being run by www.thegoodwebguide.co.uk

The organisers have told us they received a huge volume of entries, and the standard was extremely high, but Start Up Donut is in the running for overall winner of this prestigious award. Esteemed perfume entrepreneur Jo Malone will make the announcement at the awards reception at The Royal Institution in London in November.

Our fingers – and everything else – remain crossed.

The event organisers have asked us to let our site users (that’s you) know that they will also be announcing the winner of The People’s Choice award, voted for by, erm, the people (again, that’s you). So, if you’re a fan of Start Up Donut (and the other Donut sites – they’re one and the same), you can vote for us here.
