Unless you were hiding under a moss-covered boulder in the Blogisphere the last few months, you will be aware of the rather prestigious Annual Bloggers Bash Awards, that will be being held in less than six weeks! And the votes are now open for you to decide your favourite bloggers from nine categories…

You need to check this out… in just under 4 days, the votes received so far are 6,300… last year the total votes received were 6,500!

Have you voted yet?

Please do. It’s pretty simple, you just scroll down, choose the blog you feel is most deserving of that award, then press vote. No emails or registering needed.

But you can only vote once for each award.

It’s easy to vote… but not easy to choose… each of the nine categories has amazing blogs to peruse and decide from!

And in case you didn’t know, ahem, I was also nominated for Best Overall Blogger… If you feel inclined, my little blog would very much appreciate a little love in the form of a vote!

Time Is Ticking – Votes Need Casting!

Some of you will be aware that last week Sacha Black announced the nominees for the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards, or the ABBA’s as they are fondly known!


Amazingly, I have been nominated under the Best Overall Blog category!

The criteria:
This award is for the blogger who has the best overall blog. Who is the blogger that for you, excels in a variety of categories? Perhaps they’re sociable and engage with readers, maybe they share others posts, or have a writing style that keeps you coming back time and time again.
Whoever you choose needs to be an all rounder, a blogger that for you is head and shoulders above the rest.

Flattered? Why yes of course I am!

Nervous? Hell yeah! Have you seen my competition? There are some amazing HUGE blogs in the running, and I count some of the bloggers as friends, not the competition!

Still, I have to do my bit, and I am launching my vote appeal. Apologies in advance if you have already voted, but if you haven’t, your vote counts for a lot! Whether it is for me or one of my friends, please head over to Sacha’s post here to click your choice!


The deadline is 2nd June so please, vote soon!

If you’re looking to attend, the Bash is in London on Saturday 10th June and you can get your tickets here!

Find out more about the Bash here!

Thanking you in advance for your support Peeps!!!


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 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!
