& The Winner is…PENDOTALK!

The BAKE awards ceremony was held on 2nd May 2015 at the Intercontinental hotel. It was a beautiful night full of glitz and glamour. Big names in the blogging and journalism industry were present. Pendotalk, being very new to this high class lifestyle and the blogging world was extremely nervous! “It is a huge honor just to have been nominated out of over 1800 blogs”, I kept telling myself. When they finally mentioned the category of ‘best new blog’, my heart stopped! OMG! This is it! I squeezed the hands of my loved ones who were sitting next to me. “& the best new blog award goes to…PENDOTALK!!!”

“**&%@!&85@#$%**” That’s what went through my head for a few seconds as I quickly let go of the hands I had tightly squeezed and headed on to the stage. I was so happy and jumpy they had to remind me pictures were being taken so I needed to stand still for just two seconds and take the pictures LOL!

Pendotalk begun in January 2015 and after only five months of blogging, Pendotalk won the best new blog award!
