We are delighted to announce that Gobblefunked has just been named Ireland’s best Books & Literature Personal Blog at the V by Very Blog Awards Ireland 2017!
We would like to offer our sincerest ‘thank you’ to all those who voted for us across the four rounds of judging. We were thrilled to make it to the final again this year and to fly the flag for children’s books in two categories.
It is a real testament to the quality of literature – for children and adults – available in Ireland that over the last number of years more and more fantastic blogs focused on books and reading have emerged. We are only too aware that we had some very tough competition in our categories so we would like to pay homage of all our fellow finalists for all the hard work and dedication they’ve put into their blogs over the past 12 months.
We started Gobblefunked in 2013 as a labour of love. At the time we weren’t sure how long it would last or exactly what we were going to write about but we thought anything that encourages a child to pick up a book and read has merit. It hasn’t always been easy to keep afloat – financially or mentally – particularly over the last couple of years as ‘real’ work and life commitments have taken over, so we would like to thank our family and friends for their patience, moral support and hot beverage making skills.
Finally, thank you! … yes you, our loyal reader. Because of you, Gobblefunked is the little blog that could!
