See You At The Blog Awards

Irish Blog Awards

I’m joining the mass exodus of bloggers from Dublin today and heading off to the Annual Blog Awards. It’s being hosted in the stylish Cork International Airport Hotel and as always is organised by the irrepressible Damien Mulley.

I’m really looking forward to tonight, mostly because I’ll get to meet so many people that I admire and respect within my own industry. It’s a chance to connect with like minded people over a pint, have a great laugh and give the blogging world a big high five in the process.

Make The Most of Everything

To all of tonight’s winners in each of their respective categories, I second Robin’s call to do something while your in the spotlight. Like he so rightly says “the blog awards are not an award to say youโ€™re great. The blog awards are a platform to do something.” Since winning the category for Irish Technology Blogger last year, Robin has left his job and started his own business. Part of the motivation to do this, he says was down to the spotlight he found himself in after winning the award last year.

Make Your Predictions

There’s a little predictions competition running over on Le Craic’s site if you fancy a go at guessing the winners. The closest prediction wins an original (and pretty cool) oil painting of the Ha’penny Bridge. Give it a go before the awards tonight to be in with a chance.

See You There

This is my first time going to the Blog Awards (although it doesn’t feel like it), and if it’s even half as good as the Web Awards were then it’s going to be a very memorable night!

Hopefully see you down there. If you want to get in touch, my mobile is 085-7343118.

Good luck to everyone on the shortlists, it’s going to be a great night.
