Welcome to #FOODIEFRIDAY Week 48
29th September 2017
My Sunday Journal – What Happened?
1st October 2017
It’s that time of year again – have you seen all the awards going on?! I’ve been watching from afar, unable to attend any of the awards and conferences this year unfortunately but have enjoyed it immensely cheering my friends on from the side lines and virtually helping them to celebrate. That’s what I love about the #TribalChatAwards because it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, if you have an internet connection you’ll be be able to attend just as much as every other person there. Tribal Chat all begun (almost two years ago now!!!) because I shared a post on my blog called “Personal Ad: Blogger Seeks Tribe!” and from that a few women contacted me saying they’d love to be in my tribe, then the Live Chat began (every other Tues 8.30pm on Twitter #TribalChat) and now as I said almost two years on we have a couple of hundred members and I can honestly call each one of them a friend and absolutely adore our little community in the blogosphere. So – why not celebrate that?! And what better way to do that than with an awards ceremony you can attend in your pyjamas….

So what are we waiting for… let the Tribal Chat Blogging Awards October 2017 be declared officially OPEN!
