What a brilliant night we had at the blog awards last night!
First off, for the ceremony, we all went off to the circus (!)
It was a beautiful evening full of buzzing and blogging – phones livetweeting the lot!
I got to try a VR headset for the first time, but I don’t have a picture of that, unfortuneatly!
*insert picture of me, open-mouthed, in love with the VR headset, planning to run away with it*
The awards ceremony was held inside the big top
There was some fantastic entertainment
And even their very own transformer!
But, the reason why we were there was because of the awards. This blog, and my colleague Eleanor’s Young Adult blog, YAPS, were both nominated in the Best Arts & Culture Blog of the Year corporate category!
And we both won!
BALLYROAN READS WAS AWARDED BRONZE IN THE CATEGORY
AND YAPS *WON* THE CATEGORY!
We almost fell off the chair!
I’d just like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who voted for us, the judges and everyone who reads this blog. We’ve only been going six months, and to placed in this category is a MASSIVE SUCCESS – beating out established big hitters like writing.ie and The O’Brien Press!!!
And HUMONGOUS congratulations to my work bestie, Eleanor, for WINNING BEST ARTS & CULTURE BLOG OF THE YEAR with YAPS! So proud! Here’s a picture of her with the gorgeous award!
And to finish, here’s a picture of the two of us celebrating, with her award!
Thanks so much to the Littlewood’s Ireland Blog Awards 2016 for a fantastic night!
