The Irish Blog Awards take place this weekend in Galway. It is a great opportunity to put faces to familiar blogs and meet new people. I think it’s great also to see this kind of recognition for blogs and I’ve found lots of new and interesting ones to read through the list of nominees. I am looking forward to getting to spend some face-to-face time with two of my favourite Irish bloggers, Lily from Lily’s Blog and Lorna from Garrendenny Lane, both of whom were short-listed in the Awards. It should be a great night!
