To the rest of you did a great job and I hope we get the same effort for the new sheds added for next years comp, but remember each shed on the site (that has not won) goes forward to next years comp automatically, so get some new pictures ready!
One thing that happened this year was a lot of promotion by the sheddies of their sheds canvassing votes via facebook, twitter and their own blogs… plus on forums as different as football fans sites, welders and bikers.
For next year also I may cull a few categorys that did not many votes – and maybe change the rules so that it takes the top ten overall instead of categorys but we can look at that after my shedweek hangover!
