Bloggers work 365 days a year to inform society. There aren’t many days when they are truly honored, but Blog Bash is definitely one of them.

Every year at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington DC, an organization called the National Bloggers Club puts together an absolutely epic party to honor the bloggers that are making a difference. The event will be held at Bobby McKey’s dueling piano bar for the second year in a row on March 6th at 8pm. Now in its fifth year Blog Bash is seen as both an award ceremony and networking event. Bloggers can enjoy a few cocktails, get to know other people in the political blogosphere, and some are even honored with an infamous Blogger Award.

 Anyone attending can expect to mingle with both more and less seasoned bloggers, political figures, organizations, and campaigns. Some of the past attendees include Dana Loesch, Wayne Dupree, Javier Manjarres, Senator Ted Cruz even stopped by to thank bloggers for their work. This year, both Governor Rick Perry, House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and Senator Rand Paul are confirmed guests.

The party is a blast, but Blog Bash is really about bloggers honoring bloggers. Some of the awards handed out during the event include Journalist of the Year, Best Podcast of the Year, Best Activist Post, Non-profit of the Year, and Legacy Award. The winners are chosen by fellow bloggers in the weeks leading up to Blog Bash.  See the list of this year’s Blogger Awards nominees HERE

Legendary activist and blogger Andrew Breitbart was the first recipient of “Changing the Narrative Award” 2012. In 2013, in partnership with Breitbart.com, Blog Bash dedicated this award to the memory of Andrew Breitbart and will continue to present it at the 2014 Blog Bash.

Many of the bloggers nominated have been huge supporters of Volkalize, and we are proud to attend and support an event that honors individuals willing to dedicate their time and efforts to our country. Although we are not an official sponsor this year, Volkalize.com was a proud sponsor of Blog Bash 2013 and members of our team will be in attendance this year. Political Bloggers can be sure that this years sponsors and VIPs are engaged and willing to work with the blogosphere.
