Last Thursday my colleague Justyna and I, got the chance to attend the Blog Awards Ireland 2015, organised by Ashville Media Group.

The night after “Back to the Future Day”, Dublin’s Tivoli Theatre was fittingly transported back to the roaring 20’s. It was all Boudoir Caps and Bob Cuts on the night, with incredible Burlesque performances to entertain the 500 plus attendees.

Interest in the growing awards show was at an all-time high, with over 80,000 online votes being tallied across all categories and #bloggies2015 trending all night on twitter.

The variety, quantity and quality of the nominees this year speaks volumes to how blogging has evolved in Ireland since the “weblogs” of the early nineties. Irish blogs in 2015 have influence and reach not only at home, but around the world as well.

Blacknight is proud to be part of this thriving Irish blogging community, and we were delighted with the opportunity to have a chance to chat with some of the nation’s best bloggers.

Our very own Blacknight Blog was nominated for two awards: Best Company Digital & Technology Blog, along with Best Company Marketing & Communications Blog.

It was an honour to be nominated for both categories, and a thrill to take home the award for Best Company Digital and Technology Blog sponsored by Accenture Digital. It was a proud moment for all contributors to the Blacknight blog, including Conn Ó Muíneacháin, James Larkin and of course Blacknight CEO, Michele Neylon.

 

Thank you to all the Blacknight Blog readers who voted for us in the Bloggies 2015, we hope to continue to inform, engage and entertain throughout 2016.
