Jill, MyKidsTime –
Winner of Best Corporate Parenting Blog 2015
“Mykidstime was delighted to be named finalist, and subsequently winner, for Best Parenting Blog (Company) at The Blog Awards Ireland 2015. We liked being part of the awards ceremony – it was straightforward to enter and the communication from the team was good as we moved through the process. The awards ceremony itself was a fabulous night – the venue was perfect for the chosen theme, and there was plenty of great food and entertainment to help count down the time to the awards. MCs for the night moved things along swiftly and overall it was a well-organised and fun night.
Winning the award has really given our content strategy credibility and meant that our hard work has paid off; it has strengthened our relationships with partners and definitely cemented new business for Mykidstime. So far this year we have won Best Blog & Overall Marketing Awards at the OMIG Awards 2016, as well as being finalists for our blog at the Social Media Awards Ireland 2016 too, but the Blog Awards Ireland for us is the one to achieve as it is the national blogging standard to aim for.”
Siobhán Brady, There is Always Light at the End of the Tunnel –
Winner of Best Personal Youth Blog 2015
“An electric atmosphere, great opportunities for networking and some fantastic cheesecake for dessert. Being part of the blog awards, especially as a young person entered in the youth category I felt as if I was accepted but the benefits were greater than just acceptance. I was encouraged to continue blogging, empowered to keep going and find my niche, where my blog could fit in and that has contributed to my blog going from strength to strength.
I was shocked when I won but absolutely delighted, to know my blog that began as a school project has developed and flourished into something which is recognised nationally is one of the greatest feelings I have ever experienced, knowing that my blog is good enough to win reinforced my passion for writing!”
