Irish Blog Awards

June 24th, 2012

For anyone that’s confused (and there is confusion): We have not restarted, we have not handed over the reigns to someone else and we have not endorsed any other event or given our blessing. Sorry we had to board this ghost ship to clarify that. We do wish those running blogger events, commercial and non-commercial the best of luck.

Signing off

This is odd. The below post never posted and was meant to post about 15 months ago so posting now.


Thank you for the 6 years. Anyone can start an event and work with a community to make something they love. Don’t rely on us to bring bloggers together each year. Switch off the lights will ya?

Lights out for the Blog Awards
