If We Were Having Coffee – A Bloggers Bash Special That Introduces The Awards Videos

If we were having coffee I’d be telling you about the 2nd Annual Bloggers Bash that took place in London on June 11th, 2016.

This is the second of two posts I am dedicating to the event. If you missed the first post then click here and you can view a video where most of the bloggers who attended the event introduce themselves and their blogs.

Congratulations to all those blogs that won an Annual Bloggers Bash Award and many congratulations to those blogs that took second and third places in each of the categories. You can check out all the winners and runners-up by clicking here.

Let me get you another beverage before we start watching the video of the first six awards that were announced.

Yes, that was me along with Sacha Black, Geoff Le Pard and Ali Isaac in the video. I can tell you that there were a few bloggers in the audience who were having some heart-pounding moments waiting for their categories to be announced. Another beverage before we watch the video of Sacha’s closing speech and the last four awards? Just a word of warning that this video does include the odd swear word. 😱

Although I was on video and hosting duty for most of the day, I did manage to grab a few moments so I could mingle, meet and talk with those who attended the event. A big thank you to Ritu, But I Smile Anyway, who gave me a box of Maltesers, and to Cynthia, Living In Cyn, who gave me a very large bar of Toblerone.

Gifts from the 2nd Annual Bloggers bash

Founder and Boss of The Bloggers Bash, Sacha Black, also gave me a lovely pen and some chocolates as a thank you for all the work I had done with her, Geoff and Ali, in organising the event. Thank you, Sacha. I haven’t heard yet, but I’m hoping she’ll have me back on the committee to help put together The 3rd Annual Bloggers Bash. I have a feeling I have the job because she’s already been sending me messages asking for ideas and help plan the event.

If you don’t know the date for the next UK Bloggers Bash, then it’s Saturday, June 10th, 2017. Watch this space for details.

“If We Were Having Coffee” is an idea created by Diana, at Part-Time Monster.

  1. Just more confirmation of the success of the event. I’m sure it will be even bigger and better next year. Oh, and I think you’re in. Nobody lets good help get away. Especially when payment is a pen and some chocolates! Enjoy!


  2. This is so wonderful Hugh, not only for all those who attended as a fantastic reminder of a fantastic day, but for those who couldn’t make it who are just as important in the making of this entire event. You worked so hard and you deserve your lovely gifts. I hope you’ve enjoyed all your choccies and the Cross pen is a great gift. I think it goes without saying that you’ll be on next year’s committee! Thank you so much again for all your hard work behind the scenes, on the day and with putting together all these wonderful videos. Loved every minute of it. Can’t wait for next year…but of course I’ll see you way before then! 🙂 xxx


  3. Ah… how lovely to see this, Hugh! It really was a great idea to film it all. It’s still so fresh in my mind, but I can’t believe it was only a week ago! What a great day it was. And thank you for spending so much of the day working the camera. Its lovely to be able to watch it.


  4. Wonderful reminders of a wonderful day! Congratulations to you Hugh and all the committee for all your amazing work. I have really enjoyed reliving it! Looking forward to next year !! 😃😂😉😞😭😠


  5. How exciting Hugh! Thanks for taking the time to make videos longer this time. 🙂 I’ve read the post, and will be back soon (with coffee in hand) to watch the video. ❤


    1. You’re welcome, Debby. My work is now done for this year’s Bloggers Bash. However, we’ve already started planning next year’s event. Enjoy the videos and the coffee. I can’t believe this all took place just over a week ago.
      Have a great week.
