Jeff and I attended the Singapore Blog Awards last weekend. The event was held at Shanghai Dolly, a club in Clarke Quay. The theme of the awards ceremony was "History Gets Social." People were encouraged to dress up as a historical figure, but I don't think a lot of people took part.
The "social" part of the title had to do with social media. People in attendance were encouraged to download the Liveshare app on their devices and upload photos of the event, creating a "live" stream of photos which were broadcast on screens throughout the venue. People were also encouraged to tweet during the event and "check in" at the awards ceremony. Below are some photos from the event shared using Liveshare, including a photo of us that someone took and posted.

I was nominated as a finalist in the Best Travel Blog category, but didn't win. I think being a finalist is still pretty cool and I'm happy to have made it that far! It feels good to be recognized for something I've worked on for so long.
Big thanks to all of our readers who voted for us, especially those of you that voted daily. We totally appreciate your support and are grateful for all you've done!
And thank you to omy for choosing me as a finalist in the Best Travel Blog category. I had a good time being a part of the entire contest. Because of the Singapore Blog Awards, I discovered some new blogs to follow and made some new friends.
Congratulations to all the winners!
