I am quite surprised to be nominated for the BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards for 2014
I’ve been nominated in the Food category, so for whoever put me forward for it, I am very grateful indeed. It’s lovely to think that someone made the effort to have us listed. The shortlist consists of 16 bloggers out of the man who have been nominated. 11 were chosen by other bloggers, and 5 were chosen by the BritMums judges.
BritMums has about 4000ish bloggers as part of it’s continually growing network. I can’t remember how many there were when I started off, but it wasn’t a lot. I’ve not been to a BritMums conference since 2011, so its been a long time since I’ve really met many other bloggers from the network.
Getting down to the 16 shortlisted bloggers in the food category is really nice and quite a surprise. There are so many great blogs out there, that I’m quite shocked, in a lovely way.
The BIBS have now opened up for voters to choose which if their favourite blogs from each category will win the overall award for 2014.
I know most of you who read my blog do it by e-mail rather than coming directly to the blog online as I send out the whole post, so I know it would be a big ask to get you to log in online and give me a wee vote, but if any of you feel up to it, I’d be delighted.
Out of the 16 bloggers in each category, there will be 6 finalists in total. 4 will be chosen by blogger votes and 2 will be selected by the BritMums to go forward to the judging panel.
You can only vote once as the form has been designed to only allow one vote per person in each category.
Finalists will be announced on the 23rd May.
Voting is open now and the form will stay online until Friday 16th May.
Obviously, if you do decide to vote for your favourite bloggers, I’d be delighted if you included me as one of the votes in the food category, but even if you don’t vote for me, please do vote in the BiBs as each vote counts for whoever you vote for.
BritMums is hosting an award and party night at BritMums Live on 20th June, and the winners will be announced then.
The last thing I would say is that I wish all the shortlisted bloggers in their categories the best of luck. Thank you to those who put me into the shortlist, I am very grateful for my lovely readers. x
