Well the 2018 Annual Bloggers Bash is done and dusted. With a few unfortunate last minute drop outs, and despite London Transport nearly giving me knipchens by not telling me that only a selection of trains were stopping at Turnham Green (seriously guys? call that a service? not so much driver-less as headless) we still managed a respectable 40 plus attendees. I’m greedy; I want more people to come and enjoy the day and with that in mind we asked people to complete a questionnaire on the day. Hopefully that feedback will let us improve the offering for the future.
The point of this post however is to express my gratitude to one truly splendiferous blogger and crafty person, Pauline King at the Contender Crafter. Now, Pauline decided that she wouldn’t be able to make the Bash due to the distance involved in travelling to it – she lives on the southern most tip of the South Island of New Zealand. So she sent me a gift of one of her beauteous light catchers to be used as a prize. Between us we decided the on the day competition would be to come up with the best collective noun for a group of bloggers. The competition was tough but, after a public voting round the clear winner was…
The genius behind this inspiration is Lauren at Millys Guide who will now have her own wikipedia entry as the creator of this perfect noun; both Pauline and I hope she enjoys her light catcher.
If you didn’t make it – and if not, why not? You not only missed out on this lovely gift opportunity but also goody bags organised by Suzie and a raffle with books as the prizes. These were all included in the initial ticket price and, well, frankly, with the added attraction of cakes from the ubiquitous Ritu, what more could you want?
Of course, good company. That, peeps, goes without saying.
