So I’m no longer a Blog Awards virgin. Had my first taste of it at the weekend. And by God was it interesting and fun!
The hotel was funky and fun, the staff were great, and the beds were oh so comfy-just what you need!
The ceremony itself was my favourite part of the night, the excitement and laughter and anticipation of 400 people all crammed into one room just made for a fantastic atmosphere and the videos and general heckles of “Do you know Anto?” and “You’re gorgeous!” added to that atmosphere of fun.
There were lots of deserving winners, shortlisted nominees, and supporters of each of them. Most winners were there, a few were not but Rick kept the ceremony moving at a good pace either way, no one got bored or lost along the way and I think everyone enjoyed the intervening videos. Thank goodness, after all the work, blood, sweat and tears that went into them!
Heads and bodies were tired and broken by Sunday evening when we flew home to Dublin, no words to be said, no goodbyes, just drifting off home to bed.
Thanks to Mulley and his team who organised the whole thing, it was organised almost to perfection. I wonder where IBA10 will be held?
