The Annual “Bloggers Bash” 2019 Edition! A Surprising Nomination – And A Look At The Bloggers Group And London Too!

What A Nice Surprise!

As someone who posts a lot of stories on my blog, I’ve had the chance to meet many other Bloggers, and one of them was nice enough to nominate me for the 5th annual Bloggers Bash!

The blog you are reading right now has been nominated in the “Best Entertainment Blog” category – which is nice since I work in the entertainment industry and like to pot about movies, music, TV, books and all sorts of creative topics – along with lots of stories about bacon and burgers as well – and when I do I look like this:

This gif of Jim Carrey slamming away at a keyboard speaks to what blogging is: typing a lot of stuff onto a computer and then uploading it for others to read – or ignore – and many times you don’t really know which will happen!

Ultimately, ANYONE can blog, even a cat, because it truly is something that is open to everyone – although as Robert DeNiro memorably said once:

“He can’t lift the seat, Greg. He lacks the strength and the opposable thumbs.”

OK, so DeNiro was referring to a cat using a toilet seat, but I think it confirms that, in his mind at least, a cat really wouldn’t be able to write a blog, but can a pig?

I’m not sure what’s more disturbing: this person in a pig’s mask typing furiously, or the fact that it was so easy to find online…with that said, I am truly honored to be considered by this group – here the link to their organization, and their annual Bloggers Bash – check it out to see more about them, and their event – and ways that you can participate – by clicking here:

The upcoming event in June will take place once again in London – you know, this place:

I’ve had the chance to visit London on many occasions, and have shared some of those stories “on my blog” (note the clever tie-in) – like the time I took my daughter there and thought it was a good idea to buy “fried shrimp and crab” on the street:

Yes, I did buy these, and I got a good picture of them as well – and anyone from London will tell you that this was not a smart move – you can see what happened by clicking here:

I also took my son to London on a work assignment – part of a great team shooting a TV special there:

That’s Jeff in the plaid shirt in the back – we had a blast at the time, and we walked a lot through the streets of London, including a stop at my favorite fish’n’chips shop:

This trip inspired me to do another chapter in my “Hitch Hiking” series – where I share a great hike and a classic Hitchcock thriller, this one filmed on the streets of London:

If you want to see where I walked, and also see the trailer for this gritty 70’s thriller, just click on my story here:

There are just two of my London stories, and I look forward to hopefully traveling back in June to attend this blogging event and shoot new stories as well – and thanks again for the blogging nomination – it truly is an unexpected and much appreciated honor!

  10. Woooohoooooo! Congrats on your nomination! I’m still to do my nominations but it’s on my to-do list for this weekend. The guy in the pig’s mask really is pretty darn creepy. If only here were eating a bacon rose at the same time it’d be almost perfect. I looked at the Bash because I mentioned it in a recent post, too, it would certainly be interesting to go and mingle with others who are in a similar boat of writing and hoping for the best. Have you bought tickets to attend? Congrats again for being in the running, it’s very well deserved =]
