Just a short post on the Irish Blog Awards 2010 – my first time to attend and Liv came along too (which was great, she got an insight into my online life). As ever, it’s great to catch up with the people you know and finally say hello in person to a number of people you’ve chatted to for ages but never actually met face to face. Of course, you won’t get to meet everyone you wanted too but that just means you have to get out more and actually travel to some events. Having the awards on my doorstep here in Galway this year was absolutely awesome.
It’s something that takes an awful, awful amount of work (we got a taste while organising IPSA at QUB in 1999) and for which I’m very grateful that the organisers undertake. I’m aware of Damien Mulley, Stephanie Francis, Darragh Doyle, Brian Greene, Anto (I’m not aware of all the organisers involved, so omissions are really unintentional – apologies, there’s no slight intended) so thanks to all of you.
It was a great week what with Ina organising the Galway Twestival again – another very tough task.
