News! Shortlisted for the Food Blog of the Year Award by the Guild of Food Writers

Did you just read that? I did! *pinch*

I am so excited. This is the first time that the Guild of Food Writers have recognised blogs explicitly  – they have had a broader new media award which was difficult for blogs to compete in as it was usually very big sites that made that shortlist, with rare exception. A blog is an individual and imperfect adventure, it is not sub edited and anything beyond that is something else.  It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling that not only have the OFM recognised us with an award, so too have the GFW with this.

Anyway, I am quick to ramble. I am obviously thrilled to have made the list and congratulations to my two wonderful co-shortlistees (is that even a word?). I look forward to raising a glass with you on May 30th and may the best woman win.

    • very kind and from someone who has been reading so long, it really means a lot!

    Well done Niamh. Now winning the BC comp would just top it all off right?

    • Hey! No longer in the running for the BC comp but totally ok with it. I will explain soon :) Thanks for the kind words.

  2. Awesome, but if they are a guild do you think they wear renaissance clothes and play elven music from Lord of the Rings?
    If so good luck with that too!

  3. Wow! Kudos for your achievment! Getting blogs noticed as viable and credible writing sources deserves a round of applause (applause)!
