The Bloggers Bash Awards ARE HERE!

Who Nominate?This is it. These are your Bloggers Bash Awards.  BIG thank you to everyone who made suggestions. The committee spent an entire evening discussing all of them. Lots of them were similar or connected to each other, so rather than take each one specifically we have tried to incorporate as many as possible under the awards we have chosen.

We have a number of new awards this year, and some changes to the old ones.

For those new to these awards, they are part of the Annual Bloggers Bash. A physical get together in London, England, every summer. This year’s is on June 11th, if you’re interesting in attending then drop us a line on:

We are not accepting nominations YET. We will be open for nominations for the awards on April 22nd. So in the mean time, have a think about who you want to nominate and who you think deserves these awards.

Finally, if you would like a bloggers bash t-shirt then Geoffle will be taking pre orders during April, so hop over to his blog and ensure you follow him for the latest news on them.

Best OverallBest Overall Blog

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.


FunniestFunniest Blogger

Which blogger continually makes you laugh out loud? Has someone made you laugh so hard you cried? Maybe you snorted drink through your nose at one of their jokes. Who’s the funniest blogger of them all?

 


Inspirational

Most Inspirational Blogger

Who consistently inspires you? Is there a blogger that’s thought provoking and inquisitive? Or perhaps they have become a muse to you with constant provision of inspirational content or imagery? Who’s the one blogger that’s touched your heart? This is the nomination for them. 


best dressedBest Dressed Blog

This is for the most stylish blog. Who’s blog looks sleek and sexy? Maybe they use stunning imagery, or a well designed theme, or perhaps they just have a unique written style to their blog posts. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so only you can judge whose blog is the best dressed.


Informative

Most Informative (Original Content) Blogger 

This award is for those bloggers with the most informative original content. Who, time and time again writes fascinating content. Perhaps they are a history blogger, maybe, a blogger who writes about writing craft, or maybe they like archaeology, or wine tasting, or perhaps they are an artist or musician. The topic could be anything, what were looking for is a blogger who shares a wealth of knowledge that they have carefully researched and pulled together themselves.

Who do you find yourself longing to read because of their content? This is the nomination for them.


Best Book Review Blog

Book Review

We created a new award because we felt there were so many dedicated book reviewers out there that they needed an award in their own right.

Which book reviewer do you love? This isn’t about being prolific this is about quality reviews. Who’s the most thoughtful reviewer? Perhaps their thoughts on a book persuaded you to read it, maybe they use their blog as a platform for authors as well, or perhaps you love them for their scathing honesty!

Whoever you choose to nominate in this award, please ensure their blogs are PRIMARILY book review blogs.


Services to bloggers

Services to Bloggers

Who’s the kindest blogger of them all? Which blogger goes out of their way to help others? Maybe someone helped you kick start your blog with tutorials or maybe they continually reblogs your posts. Perhaps someone consistently provides useful posts on how to boost your own blog. Or maybe you want to nominate someone who provides a platform for others.

Who do you want to thank for their dedication to other bloggers?


Hidden Gem

Which blog doesn’t get the notoriety they deserve? Maybe you stumbled on them by chance, and discovered a minefield of information. Maybe they make you smile or have such an original style you can’t help but go back.

Who would you like to have the limelight for a change? This is the award for them.


Newcomer

Newcomer Award

This is for bloggers who have been blogging less than a year. So bloggers who joined the bloggisphere after 1st June 2015

Who joined the bloggisphere with a bang? Perhaps they are funny, or well designed, or maybe their posts make you smile time after time. Whatever the reason, this is for a newbie blogger that you think deserves recognition.


Best Pal Best Pal 

Which blogger do you want to go to the pub with? Or maybe have dinner with? Who never fails to reply to comments, and has thoughtful things to say. Maybe they encourage the community through weekly challenges or blog parties. Who wouldn’t the blogging world be the same without?

        1. We weren’t 100% sure some have said they really want too but that’s different to saying ‘I’m definitely coming’ YAAAY I am squeeze you for tidbits from silver and black

  1. Reblogged this on graemecummingdotnet and commented:
    Like juggernaut, the Bloggers Bash rolls onwards, building momentum as we get closer to the big day. And here’s even more news to get excited about. It’ll be fascinating to see the nominations when the time comes. Sadly, there isn’t an award for least prolific, so I’ll just have to grind my teeth and pretend to smile when the cameras are on me…

  2. Reblogged this on But I Smile Anyway… and commented:
    Time to get your thinking caps on folks about who you want to nominate!
    I was honoured to even be nominated last year, and I’ve met many more deserving bloggers since then!
    Roll on 11th June!!!!

          1. It’s not even about the actual awards now… its putting real people to those faces and names that have become part of my every day life!!!

          2. I know right. It was SO lovely meeting everyone last year and the most amazing thing is everyone was exactly like they are on their blogs! So it really did feel like you had known them forever!

    1. Yep when we open for nominations anyone is welcome to nominate it’s open to the whole bloggisphere it’s a way to connect those unable to come to the bash to the event 😍💖

  3. I didn’t even know such a thing existed. This is amazing, how exciting! Can’t wait to see who wins! Will nominees be listed somewhere later down the road? I’m chomping at the bit to see blogs fellow bloggers have nominated 🙂

    1. Hi Niki, where are you from? These awards are linked to the bloggers bash which is a real party in London for bloggers. The award nominees will be listed here when the vote opens, and of course everyone is welcome to vote too! Basically if you stick around here everything will be posted.

        1. Ah ok well maybe next year? I love the canaries have been MANY a time. Welcome to the bloggisphere. What brought u here? Are you a writer? It’s lovely to meet you 😊💖

          1. You never know! 😉 I honestly can’t remember how we connected but yes I blog and I follow you and I saw this post and curiosity got the best of me so I wanted to see what it was about. Look forward to watching to see how this goes 🙂

          2. Ah sorry I meant, you said you were new to blogging so I wondered what made you start! But how lovely that someone recommended me what an honour :). <3

          3. Oh sorry, misunderstood… :/ I’ve written all of my life but I kept it to myself. Journals, short stories, etc. I started blogging 3 years ago for a month maybe and just didn’t think it was for me. I gave it another go last year but it was right before I had my daughter so the timing wasn’t the best. I needed a hobby or something to do so my husband asked why he never saw me write anymore and I thought I’d give it another try. The timing was right and I’ve connected with the blogging community so this has been such a wonderful experience. I think he regrets his suggestion a bit because it takes up more time than he anticipated 😉

          4. The islands are beautiful 🙂 I think I remember now, one of my followers recommended your blog at one of my meet and greets, a “rule” is to recommend a blog you love so bloggers can find blogs new to them. I go through every blog and I think your killer endings post got me to click the follow button 🙂

  4. If the awards titles aren’t locked up, I think it’s interesting that there isn’t an award for the best written blog. Blogs are about writing and writing style is important too. I think it’s certainly worth considering who has the cleanest, punchiest, most stylish prose.

    1. Hi Phillip, alas they are now locked up for this year – but they will re-open for suggestions next year. Actually, there were a few comments about style etc. We felt it might exclude any one who may have dyslexia or those that don’t necessary blog words i.e. those people who have photos or recipe blogs. But we also hope that this is taken into account in best dressed – I have (or I should have) mentioned style in that award. But will note your suggestion for next year 😀

  5. Reblogged this on Suffolk Scribblings and commented:
    I’m really looking forward to the second bloggers bash, despite having not blogged as much as I’d like this year. If you want to meet a friendly, introverted (with the odd exception) group of like-minded bloggers, I highly recommend you come along.

  6. Look at you go! You’re doing an awesome job at making this an engaging event, one we Yanks would love to crash (crash the bash in 2017 is my battle cry)! BinderCon has been successful in building up tweeting under their hashtag on event days. I’ve learned from others that Twitter, in that sense, can become a note-taking tool. Great line up of awards! You get one for Best Blog Organizer Ever!

  7. Superb initiative and great list of awards. Wish I could join you all. Sadly, too far and prohibitively expensive given our exchange rate 🙁
