Wow! I’m delighted to see that Bibliocook is on the Best Specialist Blog longlist for this year’s Irish Blog Awards. You can read more about the awards goings on here, all the longlists for the various categories are here and – very important this! – you can vote for your favourites here.
The best thing about these kind of longlists is the opportunity to discover lots of different blogs. I’ve also noticed several old favourites like Beaut.ie, Maguire’s Movies, The Sigla Blog, Maman Poulet, Blogorrah, Conor’s Bandon Blog, Winds and Breezes and Bubble Brothers. Other food blogs in my category – there are a total of 32 of us so forgive me if I don’t post the whole list – are Random Grub and Ice Cream Ireland. I’ve also come across An Irish Craftworker’s Good Life, Siopa Eile and Munster Pubs before but sites like One Breast Less, The Waiting Game and Burma Review also look well worth spending some time with.
Voting for this round will close on 16 February at 5pm and the award ceremony will take place on 3 March in Dublin’s Alexander Hotel. Big thanks to Damien and Jason for all their work on this and best of luck to all the nominees!
