Had a lovely morning at the Cosmo Blog Awards yesterday at Sketch. Sadly no award for my blog, but I was surprised to learn that over 15,000 blogs were submitted for the awards, so I was really pleased to be among the 10 or so blogs shortlisted for the Lifestyle category.
The other winners in each category can be found here, and you should pop over and have a look through, but only if you don’t plan on getting anymore work done this afternoon!
This was the first year for the awards, and Cosmo put on a really good event and gave us all goodie bags full of beauty products. It was really inspiring to be in a room with a bunch of very talented and enthusiastic women (and a few men, too) who are all dedicated to writing about things they love.
Next year I hope the competition is even bigger and better, and think maybe the event might have benefitted from a keynote speaker to say a few words about blogging – someone like LLG who everyone knows and reads. But all up, a fantastic experience.
See how fancy? (Apologies for my dodgy non-existent Blackberry photo skills):
Have a good weekend, y’all!
