Annual Bloggers Bash Awards – My Take -And If You’re Brave Enough…Some Singing At The End!!!

It is less than a week to go, and I am so excited, I just can’t explain myself… heck, I can’t contain myself! I am driving my family nuts as they can’t understand why I am so excited to meet a bunch of strangers, as they see it, but I don’t think that, I think more that we are a blogily and each and every one of you that I interact with are special people!

I will be meeting people, not just bloggers. People who have become part of my daily life, and some who have become so close to me that  I couldn’t even imagine them not being there now. There are many who can’t be there for various reasons, but hey, lets be positive… there is always next year!

Many thanks to Sacha Black and her team for organising such an amazing event! The Official page for the awards is here.

Ali Isaac, another organiser has the agenda and the Who’s Who on this post.

The Lovely Geoffles has given us amazing directions – if you think you will get lost, click here. He has even organised special tee-shirts for those who wanted one, check em out here!

The last (but not least!) member of the committee is Hugh, who is listed as Chief Entertainer! I know he has had much more to do with the organisation, but on the day he will be capturing the event with his camera! Check his blog out here.

To cast your votes for all categories, (including a sneaky one for my blog) click here.

Voting is open until Thursday 9th June at 12pm.

 

There is a Facebook Group you can join where all the winners will be announced on the day if you can’t be with us, click here to check it out!

 

To end this little ramble, I have tweaked the lyrics to We Are Family by Sister Sledge – now titled We Are Blogily!

You need to click on the youTube link and then sing along with the new words!

Hugh, an idea… maybe we can all sing it at the awards and you can film it! We have a bunch of good singers coming too!

We are blogily
I got all my bloggers with me
We are blogily
Sit up ev’rybody and type
We are blogily
I got all my bloggers with me
We are blogily
Sit up ev’rybody and type
Ev’ryone can see we’re together
As we walk on by
(Hey) and we write just like bards with a feather
I won’t tell no lie
(ALL!) all of the people around us they say
Can they be that close
Just let me state for the record
We’re blogging posts in a blogily dose
We are blogily
I got all my bloggers with me
We are blogily
Sit up ev’rybody and type
We are blogily
I got all my bloggers with me
We are blogily
Sit up ev’rybody and type!
Living life is fun and we’ve just begun
To get our share of the world’s delights
(HIGH!) high hopes we have for literature
And the books we write
(WE!) no we don’t get depressed
‘Cause here’s what we call our golden rule
Have faith in you and the things you do
You won’t go wrong
This is our blogily Jewel
We are blogily
I got all my bloggers with me
We are blogily
Sit up ev’rybody and type
We are blogily
I got all my bloggers with me
We are blogily
Sit up ev’rybody and type
We are blogily
We are blogily
We are blogily
We are blogily
We are blogily

 

Sing it with me! We Are Blogily!!!!!

    What an awesome event! I can see why you’re so excited. I would be the same way because I feel the same way you do. There are so many online friends I would love to meet some day. I love the idea of the song!

    I suspect you have too high expectations where the singing’s concerned, Ritu. Unless we all hit the bar very early on. (As per my post on the FB page, I intend to start at 11:30.) Looking forward to meeting you – and so many other new people

    A bit of a sing song Bloggy style for The forthcoming Blogger’s Bash from our very own Ritu at But I Smile Anyway. We’re all getting very EXCITED!!!!! Can’t wait for Saturday. But, I’ve warned her that if I sing at the Blogger’s Bash I might just clear the room FAST, my singing voice ain’t too good! Unless you’re all tone deaf and it’ll be ok….. So to preserve your ears I’ll whisper or hum along to the tune, unless I get tipsy and there’s no knowing what I might do… Excellent lyrics my dear.. xx

    What a wonderful idea Ritu, but I’ll just whisper as my singing voice is bound to send everyone running out of the room! Tone deaf, they say, I think I sound fine but everyone else says otherwise, bit like one of those sad X factor singers who think they can sing!

    Your family is missing a key point …. we’re not total strangers. We may have never met, and we may never meet, but we can still share aspects of our lives and get to know each other a little!
