Blog Awards Ireland 2013

It’s getting real all up in here ladies and gentlemen. This years’ Blog Awards Ireland has been launched, and my little blog has been nominated in not one, but three categories. I am totes excited / nervous / a whole range of emotions / scrambling / et cetera. I took a couple of hours over the weekend to sit down and make little changes to my website that I’ve wanted to do for way too long. It’s been my perfect excuse. Also, please excuse the mess if you happen upon my site mid-fiddle. Lord knows it was a hot mess this time yesterday. 

Hydrangea Girl has been nominated for …


All of which makes me feel like this. Incredibly excited, plus a mixed bowl of nerves as well. I’m not a competitive person, so my confidence goes down the pooper the moment the word ‘competition’ is mentioned. But luckily, the Blog Awards Ireland isn’t a popularity contest so once you’re nominated, that’s it. I was dreading the idea of having to ask people to vote for me, and luckily for you guys, you don’t have to!
If you’re a blogger here in Ireland, have you been nominated yet? If not, check out the nominations list here, and get in there like swimwear. The closing date for nominations is the 31st of July. Exciting stuff, and I hope to see you there on the night! xx A

    Congrats that's freaking awesome!!!!! And well deserved~ Three categories, you are rocking it. Woot woot. Hear ya on the word popularity, but yippeee this isn't one of "those" competitions.

    BTW that storm was one of a kind wind gusts up to 200km and the damage it did over the region was scary. We do get a few storms but the last storm like that was back in the 50's. So not too regular, but not keen to repeat that one again in a hurry.

      I'm so glad I'm not alone when it comes to the word 'competition'! Nothing puts me off of something faster. Ugh.

      Woah, glad you guys are alright after that mother of a storm unscathed. A great excuse to be romantical with all those candles ๐Ÿ˜‰
