Blog Awards Ireland 2014 ~ We’ve made it to the shortlist!

This morning I discovered our blog had made the Short List in The Blog Awards Ireland 2014 in three different categories. What a great start to a dull and dreary Tuesday morning! It has been shortlisted in the following categories Best Eco/Green Blog   Best Science Technology Blog  Best Blog of a SME.  The quality of blogs in every category is very high this year and it’s great to see that so many of the blogs that I read on a regular basis have also been short listed in the various categories.

blog_buttons_SHORTLIST I want to say a quick thank you to all of the fantastic people who follow and read my blog and have made it a success – I hope you will continue to read and help to grow the blog  for years to come!  Also a big thank you to the 180 judges that volunteered their time to read the blogs over the past number of weeks and who deemed it worthy to be included in a list with other great blogs.  Congratulations to all who made the Short Lists, and to all who were nominated… that’s no mean achievement in itself.

Wishing everyone the very best of luck in the next round!

 

 

Blog Awards Ireland 2014 ~ we’ve been nominated!

Wow, what a wonderful way to start the weekend. I’ve just discovered that my blog has been nominated in Blog Awards Ireland 2014, not just in one but in four categories. I’m gobsmacked to say the least πŸ™‚ Last year I was a  finalist in the Eco/Green category and this year my blog has been nominated in the following categories.

Best Eco/Green Blog sponsored by ESB Ecars

Best Blog of an SME  sponsored by Mediabox

Best Technology/Science Blog ,

Best Mobile Compatible Blog sponsored by GSM Solutions

It is an honour to be listed in the company of  bloggers that I admire and whose blogs I read regularly.  This year sees a huge increase in blog nominations right across all categories and I’m delighted to see an increase especially in the Eco/Green category.  The awards are a great way to discover other bloggers from around Ireland that you might not otherwise have heard of and make connections with those that share similar interests.
