So Friday was the third annual MAD Blog Awards, and if you missed the action, then fear not, because the Tots100 team was in attendance and is bringing you ALL the highlights of the biggest and most exciting awards for parent bloggers.
The official photos haven’t been published yet, but you can see some of our favourite pics of the evening from bloggers over on the Tots100 Tumblr, which has gone MAD for the day in celebration.
Want to know who picked up trophies? There’s a full list over on the MAD Blog Awards website – congratulations to all the winners, but also to all the finalists and to every one of the 3,600 bloggers who were nominated in 2012. We always think it’s such a great compliment that someone loves your blog enough to nominate it for an award – and everyone nominated should feel proud!
We were so lucky to be hosted by the Radisson Edwardian hotel in Bloomsbury – the food was delicious, the wine flowed freely, and the staff could not have been lovelier to our finalists. A big thanks to all the staff there.
The awards were a LOT of fun, and as ever, the best bit was catching up with our favourite bloggers and watching their adventures. See if you can guess the bloggers who feature in our “Who Said This?” round-up…
“You’ve got legs!”
“I had my hair done and now I look like ginger Justin Bieber.”
“You used to be in Hear’Say, right?”
“I’m only having a photo taken with Myleene if she agrees to stand in front of one of my hips.”
“You look just like Myleene Klass.” [said to Myleene Klass]
“I could give a better acceptance speech than Maggy, so I think I’ll just do it for her.”
“I’d say hello, but I think I just choked on the perfume fumes.”
“Oh my God, it’s One Direction! Brilliant! Don’t tell anyone I said that, though.”
“I’m not bitter about presenting an award rather than winning one, but while I’m holding a microphone, my blog is…”
“I can’t believe she said I look like Caitlin Moran. Brilliant. Who is Caitlin Moran again?”
“Who’s that snogging Mammasaurus?”
“Oh my God, who’s snogging the photographer?”
“I didn’t steal the trophy, I was just looking after it for someone.”
“I must have an allergy to white wine.”
“You can’t put a red stag in a hotel lobby without expecting me to ride it.”
“She hasn’t had a night out in three years. I think she’s having them all at once, now, mind.”
“Yes, you can Instagram it, but only if you promise not to hashtag it.”
