Established way back in 2008, The Laughing Horse Blogging Awards have become an important milestone in the blogging calendar. Each year special sub-awards are received in a variety of categories but the most coveted award always goes to the overall blogger of the year. All nine of the previous winners have become legends in the world of blogging. Here is a list of previous winners:-

ROLL OF HONOUR

2008 – Arthur Clewley for “Arthur Clewley”

2009 – Daphne Franks for “My Dad’s a Communist”

2010 – John Gray for “Going Gently”

2011 – Ian Rhodes for “Shooting Parrots”

2012 – Kate Steeds for "The Last Visible Dog"

2013 – Tom Gowans for “A Hippo on the Lawn”

2014 – Meike Riley for “From my Mental Library”

2015 – Lee George for “Kitchen Connection”

2016 – Steve Reed for “Shadows and Light”

But who will be the winners in 2017? Above all, who will be the overall "blogger of the year"? The venue is booked. The new winners' widget  is being prepared by the Laughing Horse design team. The tension mounts.

    1. The money you sent ahead of the 2015 awards was much appreciated. I squandered it on the high life.

    2. It pleases me greatly that you put it to good use...on pots of beer at your local.

      It was a far, far better thing that you did, than I have ever done; it was a far, far better way to have disposed of it than what I would have ever thought of how to have disposed of it.

      Cheers!

    3. Hell. You would have just spent it on electricity and food for your furry friends! Debauchery gives much better value for money.

  5. How about a few of last year's candy canes? No? Perhaps a knuckle sandwich? Ooooo, I seem to have veered into threats instead of bribes! Sorry!

    2. If you still published a blog you would definitely be in with a great chance of winning Blogger of the Year but I know that as a former CIA agent you must be very careful about personal revelations.
