The Liver Bird Wins Best Female Blog!

If you've escaped the news up to yet you've done pretty darn well but last night after tootling up to Manchester on my ones I ended up picking up the award for "Best Female Blog" as voted for by the fans at the Football Blogging Awards!

I was absolutely over the moon to receive the award and it was a pleasure to be presented it by the lovely Kate Riley from Sky Sports News.

Red for #LFC!
Firstly I'd just like to say another massive thank you to each and every one of you that took the time to vote for me and The Liver Bird. Your support means the world! Secondly, congratulations to Laura from @YICETOR who picked up the award for "Best Female Blog" in the judges category, thoroughly deserved and her acceptance video was typically hilarious! Thirdly, a shout out to all the ladies in my category, please take the time to go and check out the wonderful work that they do!

As I mentioned I had to attend the awards on my own this year as my mates and fella were either working, at Uni or in Prague... Luckily though upon my arrival I immediately recognised Paul from the brilliant Redmen TV. They picked up the award for fans' choice "Best Video Blog". Paul, Chris and all of their team put in so much work, I was chuffed to see them win for the second year running!
Name in lights.

I met some brilliant people on the night, the folks over at Anfield HQ who also won an award for the Liverpool contingent! Massive congratulations! And the lovely people behind Anfield Leak who were extremely unlucky to miss out on an award.

I finally got to meet @Ste_Hoare too who scored a sublime penalty early in the night!

Also present was the fantastic @mophead_88 who runs @lostboyos. Like me, he hadn't bothered to pay for a seat and so we ended up propping up the bar all night. This worked out particularly well for him because I won a giant bottle of beer and I don't really even like beer so he'd nabbed some free booze haha!

All the female finalists.
It was lovely to finally meet Katie from Bantams Blogger too, The Man United Girl and also Em Sandy! It's just so nice to be able to put faces to names!

As always it was a pleasure chatting to the wonderfully talented Anna who will certainly go far in her career! She won the award for "Best Female Blog" at last year's awards ceremony.

As the night wound down I ended up sitting with the lads from @TheBibTheorists, @AnfieldLeak & @mophead_88. In true Liverpool style we were the last ones standing in the football museum and only left when we were finally kicked out.

I had such a brilliant night and met so many fantastic people. I also completed an interview for @BallStreet which I can only hope went well, I'm not the best in front of a camera and tend to babble on haha!

Many congratulations to all of the winners last night and all of the finalists with a special mention to local boys @WWFCFancast who picked up a judges award. It's nice to see other bloggers/podcasters from my hometown doing well.

You can find a list of all the winners here.

And last but not least thank you to Anthony and the rest of his team who work so hard to put on these awards, it was another absolutely fantastic night and I thoroughly enjoyed it, hopefully see you all again next year! 
@TheBibTheorists, @AnfieldLeak @LostBoyos - Last ones standing.
