Generation Why Not Blog Awards 2011.....

So, I've gotten a fair few blogging awards this year and I thought it was time to give the love back!

I follow a whole bunch of blogs and tweeps - some of whom are very much deserving of an award for their fabulousness. If you have received an award, please feel free to stick the below image on your blog! If you want an email version, just shout... (well commenting below is actually probably more effective unless you live within shouting distance of me)

This Blog Is So Funny I Snorted Tea Out of My Nose Award: I Know, I Need To Stop Talking from the wonderful @pinkyaks

Most Useful for Anyone Who Writes Award: Novel Publicity and the amazing, inspiring and simply brilliant all round goddess that is @emlynchand

Best Champion of Bloggers + Tweeters: The incredibly wonderful and supportive @wilkravitz of the Vampire Wonderland blog who comments on all my blog posts and frequently recommends me to people. Come to London Billy, I'll buy you a beer!

#Guessthatchoon Champion: This was a tough one but the ultimate champion has to be @melancholieC for her encyclopedic music knowledge (that or extra fast ability with Google)

Most Inspiring Blogger Award: 
This was so hard to choose so I've ended up awarding it to DemonWrangling 101 for being simply amazing and inspiring and an amazing mum. Check out my interview with her here...
And also to Betty Herbert for writing a book that I didn't even realise how much I needed to read. And for being liberating and inspiring and honest about sex. Check out the book review here and the interview with Betty here...

Best Local Blogger Award: This goes to the ever glamorous, talented and articulate Siren of Brixton. Here's to lots more margaritas, parties, red lipstick and campaigning!

Best Campaigning Blog: Voices for the Library. For no other reason than being simply the best cause that I have ever had the pleasure of championing. Without my library I wouldn't be here, writing this blog. I might not even be around at all. Love your libraries folks. Save them and cherish them.

Best Blog Post of The Year Award: This hysterical post from none other than my genius baby sister who got all the looks, talent, brains and writing ability in the family. A hilarious piss take of what glamour models have to say about current affairs.

Overcoming Adversity Award: This has to go to @theotheralig of The Other Ali G blog for overcoming a horrid year with such style, humour and grace.

Congratulations folks, hope you like the award!

Thank you and good night

  1. Ooh thank you! This is so lovely Becky xxxxx

  2. sniff, sniff...deeply touched. appreciate it very much.....So w2hat's with the corpse at Sandringham? Perfect jumping off point for a Helen Mirren movie........ there was a rumor back in the day that 'The Ripper' might have been one of the 'royals.' (like a lesser, or understudy one).......(not to be flippant, it is a sad tragedy for the victim and her family)..... but the plot thickens...

  3. Oh thank you I'm a little lost for words which is a first as you must know :)

  4. Yay! I'm famous! Thanks for giving the Novel Publicity blog a shout-out and for offering us this lip-tastic award. You're part of what makes it great, you know? Of course, you know :-D
