Fantastic bloggers, side-splitting jokes, divine food and drink, lots of silliness and a great deal of fun made the fifth annual Mum and Dad Blog Awards a night to remember. The 2014 MAD Blog Awards took place in London on Friday, and they brought together some of the biggest and brightest names in blogging.
As always, the night was a glitzy, glamorous affair all about celebrating bloggers and their achievements. The Blog of the Year Award went to The Future’s Rosie, while Team Honk accepted the Outstanding Contribution Award on behalf of all the bloggers who took part in the project.
For the second year in a row, the awards were presented by Dr Ranj. He must have posed for a thousand photographs (we were of course all getting pictures for our kids – right?) – before he even got close to the stage. Before announcing the first award, Dr Ranj told the audience that bloggers were making a difference, inspiring people, helping them be better informed, and having fun. Needless to say – his words got the crowd cheering. The night also saw a surprise dance performance from a group of bloggers who wowed the room with their hidden talents!
We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who voted in this year’s awards, and we’d also like to congratulate every nominee, all 75 finalists, and of course the winners. So who were they? Take a look here:
