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.
As chairman of the Awards Committee, I must make it clear that cash bribes are no longer accepted. Credit and debit card financial incentives only. Please make sure you include your PIN and card identity number. Cars and holidays also appreciated.
