Annual Bloggers Bash 2019: Blog Award Nominations Now Open

Anyone blogging for a few years (six for me) no doubt remembers those early days when all those awards and blog hops did the rounds. Back then, I blogged three, sometimes four times a week.  Hard work and incredibly time-consuming and yes, unimaginable now, but it was a lot of fun and worth it for the lovely blogging friends I made.

Something had to give, however, if I was ever going to finish my book, that something being blogging. If I was grateful for anyone who read and ‘liked’ my blog back then, never mind left a comment, I’m even more thankful today if I manage a blog post at all, even more so for your wonderfully encouraging visits, dear fellow bloggers and behind the scene readers.  I can’t tell you enough how much it means to me…

So…since I’m still scraping along as a blogger, I wanted to help spread the exciting news that  The Annual Bloggers Bash is back – for its fifth year!  Which of course also means  it’s time for us to nominate our favourite blogs for the Annual Blog Awards.

Nominations are open until the end of March, the rules and submission details here.  Awards are presented at the Bloggers Bash to be held on Saturday, June 15th.  This year, there are several new categories.  Ater the close of nominations, there will be public vote for the winner of each.

All the Bash details are on the wonderful new The Annual Bloggers Bash Website where you can also buy your ticket. Worth mentioning that the early bird tickets are only available until 31st March.

I’ve been fortunate to have attended all four previous Bashes and I’m looking forward to going again. It’s a fantastic event which the Committee work hard all year round to make both professional as well as great fun, with lots of new exciting activities planned for this year:

‘The Bloggers Bash is a social event for bloggers created by Sacha, with the help of her committee who are Geoff, Hugh, Suzie, Helen, Graeme and Adam. Its purpose is to bring together the blogging community and provide an opportunity for everyone to meet the friends they have made online. To see images from some of our previous events, click here to be taken to our gallery!’

It’s a wonderful chance to meet fellow bloggers in the flesh, those real people behind their blogs and profile pics.  Even if geograhically it isn’t possible, there’s live streaming on the day via Facebook connecting blogging friends around the world. I’ve made some great friends thanks to the BB, and would urge anyone thinking about attending to give it a try if you can.  Lots of warm hugs await, promise.

(Pssst…I didn’t have a clue what I was doing the first time I went, back when we met at a Pizza Express in London in 2015, but I’m so glad I did. If I can do it, so can you…)

Hope to see you there!  Love Sherri x

    Have a good time… I LOVE your posts, never mind like. Have you visited Lewes recently? Wondering if you still have family in this area.

    • Aww Denise…you’re lovely, thank you. And if you’re thinking about coming to London around June 15th… 😉 Yes, still visit Lewes, always flying visits to the boys and back again. I am hoping to plan a visit in the spring though, just me for a few days. Would be great to meet up again…will be in touch… 🙂
