I had a lovely surprise this week. I found out I had been nominated in not one but two categories for the prestigious MAD Blog Awards, and I still can’t actually believe it’s happened! I knew I’d been nominated, but to have made the shortlist in the Best Writer and Blog of the Year categories is just an absolutely amazing feeling – and you’ll all know there haven’t been many of those around here for a very long time.
I’m up there with a fantastic group of bloggers, many of whom I can now call my friends, and I know the competition is tough. I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who reads my blog, and to everyone who nominated me, I really am so grateful.
It has made me smile this week when everything else is so rubbish. I still can’t believe I started this blog just over a year ago and wondered if anyone would read it, and now here I am. It just goes to show that taking a leap of faith can sometimes pay off – without this blog to share my ups and downs I don’t know where I’d be.
Voting in the MADs is now open until 26 June, so if you would like to cast a little vote for me and my blog it would mean the absolute world to me! You can do so here. You’ll find me in the Best Writer section but the Blog of the Year is chosen solely by the judges.
Thanks so much!
