Check out the lovely award Winners
On Saturday June 11th bloggers from across Uk and Europe travelled to London for the second annual #BloggersBash awards.
Myself and Alison Williams travelled to Kings Cross where we met Shelley Wilson, Chris Philippou and Barb Taub. Potterheads in the team got side-tracked at the platform 9¾, then we had an early lunch at The Parcel Yard (highly recommended)
2 o’clock and we joined bloggers at The Driver, Wharfdale Road. It was great to meet face-to-face friends and members of our “virtual families”.
Great informative Master class from Luca Sartoni, Growthketeer at Automatic. (Luca works behind the scenes at wordpress)
This blog was up for the Best Book Reviewer Award:
The criteria was: 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!
MANY THANKS FOR ALL YOUR VOTES, THE BLOG WON SECOND PLACE.
Huge congratulations to all the winners and runners up, fellow #RBRT team member Terry Tyler came second in the Best Blog Pal category and Shelley Wilson won the Most Inspirational Blog award. Well done ladies.
Overall 2016 Best Blog went to Suzie Speaks Suzie founded #SundayBlogShare
