Sing It! We Are Blogily #BloggersBash

The bash is fast approaching, and Bash Fever has hit fever pitch with me!

What with gently reminding folks to vote (I’ll do that again at the end 😉 ) researching places to stay, and what to bake, it has hit the less than four-week mark now until the day we gather to celebrate our Blogs!

I feel it is the right time to share my especially tweaked version of We are Family, the now infamous We Are Blogily, to any new subscribers, and remind my existing blogily of our anthem!

The words are like this:

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

Support Matters #BloggersBash

It’s not easy being the partner/spouse/family member of a blogger and writer.

I can only imagine what Hubby Dearest and my kids think I am doing, as I sit, reading posts, and laughing to myself, thinking, before feverishly writing comments…

The constant checking my notifications to reply to my Blog Peeps must be so annoying…

Me needing quiet as I write…

Wondering when I am going to bed, as I toy with words on a screen for what seems like forever…

Worrying if I may turn their latest silly comment into a blog post…

Hoping that I might stop soon, to feed them…

But knowing they got my back… Priceless.

The kids have been wonderful, you know, the last couple of weeks, as I finished my WIP. They even listened to snippets, giving me support and encouragement along the way.

Hubby Dearest is a quieter supporter; he lets me get on with things, and is pleased for me when things go well, but doesn’t always really know what I am doing!

But this year he is giving me some extra special support, by accompanying me to the Annual Bloggers Bash! I wanted him to come last year too, so he could meet some of the folks I try to talk about, but it didn’t happen.

This year, he decided that he would do it. Be there for me as I debut as a speaker (more on that below), and cheer me along at the awards too… (again, see below 😉 )

It’s quite a big thing, you know. I’ve been to several events with him over the last 20 years, as his plus one, for company parties. But this is the first time he’s going to be my plus one! (So to speak!)

We’ll try and book somewhere nice for the night, so I don’t have to rush off like a budget Cinderella at 6pm , to catch my train! and share more drinks and chats with my Blogily!

More on the post title about support

Just in case you didn’t know, I’ve been nominated for the Best Overall Blogger 2018 award at the Annual Bloggers bash. I haven’t gone on about it TOO much (yet) because my WIP drained my attention and energy, but I am back!

But you can ONLY VOTE ONCE, so think carefully before voting!

The votes close at the end of April, so make sure you don’t forget!

VOTE HERE!

And, if you hadn’t heard, I am even giving a talk (eek!) sharing

…my top tips from a working mother on how to keep your blog running smoothly and giving it plenty of attention without abandoning your family and real life too!

Your support in not throwing eggs or rotten fruit if you are there would be much appreciated… and hopefully I don’t put you to sleep! (I’ve worked really hard on the handout too!)

Click here for more information about the Guest Speakers for the day!

There will even be a panel discussion too, which is always so informative.

And there just might be some cake involved too…..

Those were my creations last year!

Are you coming to the Bash? Let me know in the comments, I’m excited to know which new blog pals I will get to meet this year, and catch up with my old Blog Buddies too!

If not, why not? Click here to get your tickets!

 The Mystery Blogger award | Actually Anna – Thanks Anna!

Thank you Anna for thinking of me for this award!

I have been lucky enough to receive this before, but I would like to share your post as thanks, and I will answer your given questions!

Did you ever attend a blogger event and which one (if not which one would you like to attend)?

Oh yes I did! I have been lucky enough to attend the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards in London the past two years and I aim to be there for the next one too! It was awesome to meet some of the bloggers who I admire so much!

Do you have pets and what kind of pets are they (if not would you like a pet)?

I have the wonderful Sonu Singh, our Punjabi cat, and my parrotlet pair, Heer and Ranjha!

What are you most proud of?

My children, Lil Man and Lil Princess – fur and feather babies included!

What is your favourite blogpost and why?

I have been asked this before, and I really don’t have a favourite blog post! So many of them strike a chord as there was a reason why I felt compelled to write them!

If you could stock up one thing for a lifetime supply what would that be?

It would have to be Maltesers Chocolate!

Thank you again Anna!!!

I haven’t done much Blogger Awards/Tags in a while. When Jasmine from Thoughts From Jasmine nominated me for The Mystery Blogger Award, I thought I’d do another one. I really like the t…
