WHAT IS THE BASH?
If you’ve never attended a Blogger Bash event before then you’re in for a treat. Created by Sacha Black and aided by her intrepid committee of six bloggers, the Bash is open to any blogger, regardless of age or niche. Previous events have included speakers, competitions, a panel and attendees from all over the UK, Europe, the US, Canada and even Australia!.
While the event takes place in a single day, we also run Annual Awards, nominated and voted for by the general public.
HOW DOES THE AWARDS PROCESS WORK?
Each year we stage a two-step awards ceremony.
STAGE 1 – You ‘NOMINATE’ who you would like to see listed in each category.
STAGE 2 – You vote for your favourite bloggers.
The Awards will be open for nominations in 2019!
The committee is still deciding on what awards should be offered for this year’s event, but here’s a list of the 2018 categories to give a general overview of the themes that will be available.
Note: These may be subject to change
BEST OVERALL BLOGGER
Who is the blogger that excels in a variety of categories? Who provides excellent content, is sociable and engaging with readers, shares other posts, or has a writing style that keeps you coming back time and time again? Whoever you choose needs to be an all-rounder. A blogger that is head and shoulders above the rest as that’s what makes the Best Overall Blogger.
Which blogger always makes you laugh the most? Whether that’s through humourous content, or their blogging manner, a blogger that has your sides aching from laughter and brightens up the blog-o-sphere is what makes the Funniest Blogger.
MOST INSPIRATIONAL BLOGGER
Who inspires you? Is there a blogger that’s thought provoking and inquisitive? Perhaps they’re a muse to you with the constant provision of inspirational content or imagery. Who’s the one blogger that touched your heart? This is what makes the Most Inspirational Blogger.
MOST INFORMATIVE (Original Content) BLOGGER
This award is for the blogger with the most informative and original content. Who creates fascinating content that you find yourself longing to read? Perhaps they’re a history blogger or they write about the craft of writing/blogging, or maybe they like archaeology or wine tasting. They could be an artist or musician. The topic is irrelevant; it’s the original content that counts. A blogger who shares a wealth of knowledge in an informative way is what makes the Most Informative & Original Blogger.
BEST BOOK REVIEW BLOG
There are so many wonderful book bloggers out there, but which one stands out for you? Whose book reviews do you enjoy reading and engaging with? It’s not the number of reviews that are important, but more about the quality of them. Who has you clicking the ‘buy now’ button after reading a riveting summary, or who has the most thoughtful reviews? A blogger who shares an abundance of book reviews in a memorable way deserves the Best Book Review Blog.
SERVICES TO BLOGGERS
Which blogger goes out of their way to help others? Maybe this is someone who helped you kick-start your blog with tutorials or how-to guides. Perhaps they continually reblog your posts. It could be a blogger who consistently provides useful posts on how to boost your blog. Or maybe you want to nominate someone who provides an engaging platform for others. Someone who selflessly dedicates themselves to other bloggers is who deserves the Services to Bloggers award.
Have you stumbled upon a blog by chance and discovered useful information or thought-provoking content? Is there a blog that doesn’t get the notoriety they deserve? Maybe they have such an original style you can’t help but read their posts. A blogger who you believe should get the limelight for a change is one who deserves the Hidden Gem award.
A category for those bloggers who have been blogging less than a year (joined the blog-o-sphere after 1st June 2018). Did they join with a bang? Have they made an impression? Do they engage with readers? Are they funny, or well designed, or maybe share posts that make you smile time after time. A newbie blogger who deserves recognition makes the best Newcomer Blogger.
Which blogger do you want to go to the pub with? Or maybe have dinner with? Who never fails to reply to comments, and has thoughtful things to say? Maybe they encourage the community through weekly challenges or blog parties. A blogger who makes the blog-o-sphere a better place is what makes the Best Pal.
