2012 Irish Blog Awards

Sunday, 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.
