Wow! I’m in shock! I honestly can’t believe it… Ok, so I’ve spent today checking and re-checking Twitter to see whether BritMums had released the shortlist nominations for the BiBs (Brillance in Blogging) Awards; I didn’t think I would make it onto any of the shortlists for nominations, but hey, you never know! Then BritMums tweeted “The #BiBs shortlists are here!” and my tummy did a small flip… “Please let me be shortlisted” I repeated over and over again to Busby, who was giving me a very strange look… And guess what?! I only ruddy am!!! I’ve made it onto the Fresh Voice shortlist, and I’m beyond chuffed! Thank you to everyone who has nominated me!
I’m in a category with some fabulous blogs, like, seriously good, and I am over the moon that I’m surrounded by these wonderful people, and that you all think I’m good enough to be amongst them! Humbled doesn’t quite describe it…
So, why should you vote for me when there are so many amazing blogs in this category (16 to be precise)? Well, as you know I’m new to blogging; I started the Make, Do and Push! journey in September last year (when I was Bump, Baby and Bunting) as a way to document the adventures of pregnancy and Motherhood. You all seemed to enjoy reading, so I kept on writing… became slightly obsessed with Google Analytics, and from there I’ve been hooked. I might not always be fresh (Busby can produce some pretty whiffy nappies, and the constant bouncing of a baby is a workout and a half), but luckily you don’t have to experience smells in cyber-land…! I always try to be original with my content, and with my weekly What’s in your Changing Bag? feature, I try to promote and continue the lovely communal feeling within our Mummy (and Daddy) Online Community.
Yes, I’m rambling now… that will be the bubbles I’ve consumed this evening in celebration! But in all seriousness, if you enjoy reading my blog and like the way I write, please consider voting for Make, Do and Push! so we can make the finalist list. I can’t bribe you with puppies and kittens, but I will be ridiculously chuffed and probably drink far too much at Britmums Live…! Just click here to vote.
