The way I see it, the Problogger Training Event is a bit like The Bachelor, except everyone goes home with a rose.
Stay with me petal.
We’re all compatible. Tick. We’re all interested in living happily ever after with our
Bachelor blog. Tick. We’re unafraid to “put ourselves out there”. Tick. We’re all “on a journey”. Tick. We’re all aware that this one episode could be life changing. Tick.
Instead of issuing roses, this year I’d like to hand out a few awards.
The envelope please…
The award goes to Stacey from A Healthy Mum. I first spotted her engagement sparkler when we were engaged in conversation. In case you’re wondering, it’s an aquamarine and she designed the setting. Don’t you just love it? I do. I do.
P.S. I can happily report Stacey’s bright personality matches her beautiful bling.
Sammie from The Annoyed Thyroid was on page one of my “must meet” list. I wasn’t surprised she was just as delicious in real life as she is online. However, I was surprised she’d baked me chocolate fudge. What a sweet, sweet gesture. Please be advised: photographic evidence is unavailable. Let’s just say, I’ve had a lot to chew over and Sammie’s chocolate fudge was the perfect accompaniment to my plotting and planning.
Miss Daisy me to the event, took photographs of me, entertained me, helped me and supported me. Drum roll please.
Caroline from Palatable Thoughts, please take a bow.
Best skirt (made by a relative)
Behold. I love this skirt with every thread of my being. Robyna from The Mummy and the Minx literally stopped me in my tracks when I saw her in this incredible number. But wait….there’s more. Her talented father, an artist, hand-painted the fabric. I have requested he attend next year’s event as I would love to don one of his designs. Who’s with me?
Best skirt (made by a non-relative)
I must begin with an admission. I literally chased Carly Findlay. She was minding her own business when I just about bowled her over. I simply had to have the deets of her AMAZING skirt. Apparently she bought it from Chicwish but we’re not sure if it’s still available. One thing I do know for certain, Carly is one of our community’s most generous and fashionable bloggers.
Best baby bump
I was pretty chuffed to catch up with Jasmine from Pretty Chuffed. You know that “pregnancy glow” they talk about? Well let’s just say Jasmine really shines.
Were you there? What awards would you like to hand out?
