There’s a great deal of camaraderie amongst us bloggers in Ireland and today is a big day in the Irish blogging calendar as the Finalists in the Irish Blog Awards for 2014 were announced.

I’m delighted that many of my very favourite blogs have made it to the finals and the competition is great in that it introduces one to newcomer blogs as well as those relating to subjects areas that are ‘new’ to one’s own scheme of things.

Are there national blogging awards in countries other than Ireland ~ and I direct this question to my non-Irish followers?

So heartiest congratulations to all those who made the Finals and all the best in the last shake-up.

We, the readers, are definitely winners at this stage. Here’s the link to the Irish Blog Awards 2014 Finalist List. You will definitely find something to appeal!

    1. Hi Patsy, yes pretty amazing alright. Goes to show how popular blogging is in this little country of ours.
      I expect to see your photos their one of these years! I’d need to narrow my bridge but I like having a good few lanes going various directions. Maybe there will be a social bridge category in time to come when the concept is part of everyday parlance!!

    1. Thanks for writing, CT.
      Yes, it’s the location bit that’s good and I think these Irish Awards go a long way towards showcasing Irish blogs. Maybe it will be picked up a lot more around countries, counties or whatever seems appropriate.

  1. What an amazing and broad selection. I’m rushing around today so regret that I can’t take time to look into more of these blogs (I’ll definitely be back!) Meanwhile, that’s another gorgeous flower photo you have.
