My blog has been longlisted for the 2018 Irish Blog Awards, sponsored by Alcatel, this is the second year that this has happened. I have been told that pretty much all the blogs get longlisted, I hope I get to move along the process in time. Last year I was shortlisted but did not make it to the finalist event in the Mansion House. I was sent the lovely owl graphic below to display on my blog to indicate that I have been longlisted. My Blog has appeared on two lists published by the Blog Award organisers, one is the Best Photography (Personal) Blog and the second one is the Best Lifestyle (Personal) Blog category, which has an incredibly long list of 106 Blogs, covering a wide variety of interests. I won't be including links to all of those blogs, as this post would be far too long. I wish all of those authors the very best of luck and look forward to watching them progress through the next couple of levels of judging.
