I have no words! Ballyroan Reads WON Best Books and Literature Blog of the Year!

V By Very Blog Awards 2017 - Winner

Last year, as some of you may know, myself and my colleague Eleanor (and her blog, YAPS!) were nominated in Best Arts and Culture Blog (Corporate) and Ballyroan Reads got bronze with Eleanor taking home the trophy, winning the category.

This year, the categories have changed a little and we’re in Books and Literature (a much better fit, I feel!) and YAPS! was awarded the Bronze Award in Best Books and Literature and Ballyroan Reads WON the category.

Which meant I got an actual award:

And here’s a pic of me onstage, looking flustered, getting the award!

And finally, here’s a lovely pic of myself and Eleanor celebrating afterwards!

Thanks to Eleanor for all of these pics (and please go visit YAPS! if you get a chance, it’s a wonderful blog), to all the contributors who have made this site what it is, and to all of you for reading!
