I can’t actually believe I am writing this post. I think I am in denial about the whole thing actually as I haven’t seem to have digested the news that I, little old me, am a BiBs finalist for Best Family Blog. Gobsmacked doesn’t even cover it.
You see I have been here before, only last time it was in the MAD blog awards. Except that year I went all out canvassing for votes. I messaged friends, wrote posts appealing to my readers and crossed every finger and toe that I would make it. And I did, I made it to the finals in the best pre-school blog in 2015. I didn’t win, it went to my lovely friend Colette and her blog We’re Going On An Adventure and that was that. I never thought I would win, I was just happy I’d got as far as I did and that I got a finalist badge! It’s the simple things!
This time though, I stayed quiet. I didn’t feel that I would get anywhere, so what would be the point. I guess the fact that I am writing this post today is proof that you should always have faith in yourself and there is absolutely a point.
So what am I up for? If you haven’t heard of the BiBs, they stand for Brilliance in Blogging and are run by BritMums Live. There are 11 categories and my blog is up for Best Family & Lifestyle Blog. Of all the categories, this one means the most to me as my family are my everything. They are the focus of my blog and put up with me taking millions of photos of them all, so to win would be a dedication to them.
If you read my blog, enjoy my posts about my little family or have found anything I have written about Lils and Wills with their allergies useful, then I would love if you would consider voting for me. It only takes 2 minutes but would mean the world to me.
Whether I win or not, I am absolutely thrilled to have got this far and am just happy to have a shiny new badge as proof I got this far!
