Nominated in The Annual Bloggers Bash Awards 2019, London!

February, 2019

Image Earth Travel is nominated for a second year in the the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards, taking place in London. This time, the nomination is in the Best Photography Blog category!

The award nomination opened on the 1st February, which is also when I received the email advising of Image Earth Travel’s nomination – what an awesome surprise!

In 2018, Image Earth Travel received its first award nomination in The Annual Bloggers Bash Awards’ Hidden Gem Category. Even though I didn’t win the category, I was still pretty stoked about the nomination as this shows huge appreciation of my work.

For someone to actually take the time out of their busy day, to send in a nomination for my blog is quite humbling.

About the award

This award was created by Sacha Black 5 years ago, with the aim to “…bring together the blogging community and provide an opportunity for everyone to meet the friends they’ve made online.”

Each year, Sacha and her relentless committee made up of 6 bloggers GeoffHugh, SuzieHelenGraeme, and Adam, organise, co-ordinate, and host the amazing Annual Bloggers Bash Awards (ABBA) event in London. The event is open to any bloggers from around the globe.

This year, the categories changed and the nomination process is much simpler.

    Congratulations! Well deserved. I had no idea about this Bash.

      Thanks Inese. I only learnt about it last year as I was nominated in the Hidden Gem category – very honoured for both nominations.

        Sounds fantastic! Your blog is wonderful.

        Awww, thank you and so sweet of you to say that – you’ve made my week and this feedback makes me want to write even more.
        I love sharing travel stories and hope they help others. 🙂

      3. inesephoto Avatar

        Your travel stories are very detailed, so it definitely helps. What I like in your stories is a healthy attitude 🙂 You know, we have enough negativity in Tripadvisor 😉

        Thank you.

        I used to write reviews in TripAdvisor and after around 200, I stopped. The thing I don’t like about this forum is that anyone can write a review, even though they haven’t stayed at the accommodation, so it’s an easy way to destroy a competitor’s reputation. Also, you’re not allowed to post your site’s link for exposure. You’d think that after a certain amount of reviews, this would be allowed.

      5. inesephoto Avatar

        I had no idea. Well, it is unfair for sure. As to the truthfulness – I have read a good few reviews that were a blatant lie.

      6. Image Earth Travel Avatar

        Yes, exactly.

        Not sure if I mentioned, back in 2011 we were robbed in a hotel in Peru, it was an inside job and I will write about that soon. I wrote a review on TripAdvisor and emailed Lonely Planet as the hotel was their recommendation.
        My review was posted on TripAdvisor then the manager wrote a reply basically accusing me of lying. I was not allowed to respond, which demonstrated to me what TripAdvisor is all about. Another time I wrote a review and later it was removed. I think the owner must of requested its removal.

        I don’t sugar-coat anything and will always write exactly the type of honest experience I had.
