Different Blogger Reactions to Winning an Award

Picture this. You are at the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards waiting to hear whether you have won an award.

After weeks of campaigning for votes you are broken and a shadow  of your former self.

Added to this, the cruel committee members have left your category to the end of the awards ceremony – as if you need more pain inflicted upon you! 

You check your competition one last time. They are all great bloggers! Cue sinking feeling. 

You know that you struggle to contain your emotions on a daily basis. Those self help books better pay off!  

“Must not let my emotions run away with me!” you whimper. “Must keep up the image of being….all there mentally!”

Nerves and emotion build inside you as the Committee members announce the results of the votes in your category. 

Your heart pounds in your chest, your mouth runs dry and a nervous blogger next to you squeezes your clammy hand.

When the committee members reveal that you are the winner – how do you react?

I was lucky enough to be at the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards 2016 at the weekend and there were some different reactions from winning bloggers.

  1. The Cool as a Cucumber Blogger. The news of your victory does not faze you. With the hint of a smile you walk calmly to the front to collect your prize.
  2. The Grinning Blogger. The news of your victory brings a huge grin to your face. You bound up to the front and maybe raise a hand to your applauding fans.
  3. The Delighted Blogger. With a hop, skip and a jump you race up to the front and hug every committee member on the stage before accepting your prize.
  4. The Air Punch Blogger. You leap up from your seat and roar ‘YESSSSSS!’ This is quickly followed by some rapid air punches. Unable to contain yourself you charge up to the front (air punching as you go). You snatch the prize from the shocked looking committee member and race back to your corner, still air punching. Once seated another blogger has to quietly tell you to stop air punching.


I will let you decide on how I reacted to the news that I had won Funniest Blogger.

Think about how calm and collected I am on this blog! Sigh! 

Thank you for all your support. I have been blessed with some great readers and followers.

  1. Ha ha, I agree with Ritu, it was definitely…dignified!
    P.s. Sorry I had to tell you to stop punching the air but you nearly had my eye out!! πŸ˜‰
    It was a great day and you fully deserved your win, congratulations *rushes off to find someone to hug in your honour* πŸ˜‰ xxx

  2. HaHA! I think you reacted perfectly normally for someone that had just won the ‘funniest blog’ award!! Your excitement was infectious! Congratulations, on your well-deserved win. πŸ™‚

  3. If I can just quote from an email received today from the driver (with the damages invoice) …. ‘… As for the marks on the ceiling near the bar, it appears they are knuckle dents. We have taken casts and would be grateful if you would check who amongst your guests practiced their mixed martial arts quite so vigorously. Once the culprit is identified the replastering costs can be passed on. Finally to the stiletto heel marks in the bar, experts believe they were Loubitan shoes so…’ Just saying. A highly well deserved prize oh giggle goddess. Here’s to winning the trophy outright next year…

  4. Being that committee member who handed you your prize, please can I have my hand back? As for my black eye from the one air punch that went astray, the bruising is already getting better πŸ˜ƒ
    Congratulations on your well-deserved win.

  5. I would have been them all at once! congratulations Lucy I am so pleased. My vote obviously done the trick… but watch your back I am doing my best to catch you xx * big smile*

  6. Congratulations! You definitely deserved this! Your acrobatic keystroke antics keep me laughing every time I read your posts…

    Keep up the wonderfully funny work and best wishes for everything you apply your talents to!

  7. Congrats, Lucy! You’re my weekly laugh therapy :), so I’m happy you won. I’m thinking you started off as a 4 then switched to a 3-2 combo while crying and repeating, “Oh my God, I can’t believe this!” Am I close?

  8. Haha…first hand witness to the air punching so an easy guess for me πŸ˜€ Congratulations Lucy, you deserve it! Really enjoyed meeting you and chatting, albeit briefly…here’s to next year to carry on where we left off! xx

  9. Congratulations, you definitely earned it. Just remember us “little people” who helped you get there. It’s me, Chris…Chris Mentzer? I sat in your chair and allowed you to interview me. Ring a bell? *sigh*

      1. That’s awesome!!! Thank you so much, best IBFF! ❀ My day of fame has finally come. I'm friends with a superstar blonde writer/blogger!
