With giddy excitement and a big beam I learn that I have become a finalist in the Irish Blog Awards. Never before in the finals of anything I have mixed feelings! But hey I am rising to this unexpected challenge, crawling out of my safe little burrow and taking all my own advice about living life for the day!
Thanks to everyone for your kind wishes and for all the comments and thoughts which you share here and on twitter and facebook week in week out. It has made the whole blogging experience so worthwhile.
You can check out all the Finalists and the three entrepreneurial women Amanda, Beatrice and Lorna who organised the Awards, must have been so much work.....
There are fantastic Photography Bloggers in my category. Good luck to each one of you, I can see the work and the passion that has gone into your blogs and I am thrilled to be in such talented company. Congrats to all who were nominated and shortlisted, I am a fan of many of you, and none of ye are short on passion either:~)
And last but not least thanks to Damien for sponsoring the Photography Blog Award.
Cearbhuil Studio is the sponsor for the ‘Best Photography Blog’.
Damien specialises in wedding, portrait and commercial photography offering a range of studio and location services nationwide. As Damien says, an event like the Blog Awards shows that you don’t need to be a big business or an award winning journalist to let people hear what you have to say.
