The agonising wait is over at last! Here are the winners in the very first ever halfbananas awards.
There are so many amazing blogs out there, it’s hard to keep up. I hope you enjoy discovering some great new ones, and if you’ve won a coveted halfbananas award, congratulations!
The dedicated awards committee have tried to recognise the best examples in various categories, but inevitably there will be lots of other fabulous blogs that missed out this time around. But never fear, there will be more awards, accolades and virtual pats-on-backs coming soon. Let’s spread the love people!
I look forward to seeing all the lucky winners and honourable mentions, at the lavish Hollywood party I will be hosting, assuming awards condition #3 is met (see below).
So many great blogs in this category. The winner manages to be consistently hilarious, even when writing about the most humble and mundane subjects or experiences. Great work Bun Karyudo!

The lifetime achievement award
How could I not recognise my dear Mum, Joy, for her many great achievements? She had me for starters… Still a busy bee at 84, she writes and publishes factual, fiction and poetry, edits other writer’s works and runs a writing group, among other things. She lives life to the max and has always been a great source of support, inspiration and advice, especially in my ninja assassin training.
A reminder of the award conditions
If you are nominated for a halfbananas award, you should complete one (or more) of the following conditions/tasks:
1. Thank me for the award by making a sizeable donation to my retirement fund.
2. Embark on a quest to locate the lost city of Atlantis and bring me the fabled golden chalice of eternal youth.
3. Invent a time machine and get me the Euro-lottery results for next Friday.
4. Display the award proudly on your blog.
5. All of the above.
6. None of the above.
If you’d like to display the award on your blog, please right click the award graphic at the top of the page and ‘save image as..’ to your computer. I can also supply it in other sizes or formats. This might in future include a T-Shirt, babygro, coffee mug, or a 50 foot banner or billboard for erecting outside your home, depending on demand.
Warm wishes and many congrats to all the talented bloggers out there.
