It’s been pretty busy here at Blog Awards HQ. I’m sure you all know that the nominations have been published – all nearly 1900 of them throughout the 28 categories.
Best Blog Post
Due to a number of complete blogs being entered in the Best Blog Post category, we re-opened that category for another week and emailed all the nominators to reply to us with their nominated blog post. We’ve got lots in but don’t forget the deadline is midnight tonight if you haven’t got around to doing so yet.
Our launch for the Blog Awards coincided with our second birthday for the KLCK Bloggers Network, hence, we combined both events last Monday night and had a great evening at the Osprey.
We’d like to thank all our supporters who came along to enjoy the night, many new faces and it was nice to put a ‘face to the blog’! Joan Mulvihill from the Irish Internet Associatio spoke, followed by Dave Antrobus.
Then, it was time for some fun and games with some speed blogging around the tables, some fun tips being delivered by members of the audience and some choosing of words out of a hat to inspire future blog posts.
Even some little people joined us
We’re delighted to announced new sponsors since our last report – Belleek is sponsoring the trophies, Best Personal Blog is sponsored by Red Oak Tax Refunds, Best Blog Post by Newsletter.ie and Best Blog of a Journalist is sponsored by Elevate. Many thanks to all our sponsors as without them, we couldn’t run this event.
If you’d like to become a judge for the blog awards, we’d love to get more people on board. Do fill out an application form indicating which categories you would like to judge and we’ll get back to you soon.
The short list will be published on 8th September so not long to go now ……
