I havent been blogging very long at all. In fact I havent even reached my Six Month Bloggaversary. When I started in September last year, The MADS 2012 were being held or had just been held. I remember thinking at the time how amazing it must be to have a blog successful enough that it got nominated for an award.
Five month down the road and its nomination time for The MADS 2013. I never thought for one second that I would even get one nomination. There are so many other blogs out there more worthy in my opinion. I have lots of followers for sure. But my little blog hasn’t been around long enough to have made enough of an impact that would get me a nomination surely?!
I was proved wrong. I was excited beyond belief to discover that I have in fact three nominations, in the categories: Best New Blog, Best Family Life Blog & Best Family Fun Blog. How amazing is that!
Thank you so much to whoever has nominated me (which bar one nomination that I am aware of hasn’t come from family!). Its reassuring to know that people do like and read my blog.
I love blogging. Its been great fun so far. I love how it has created for me a circle of blogging friends who are always at the end of a tweet, or a comment on a blog post away. It’s lovely to get the comments from people that they like my posts or want to share their experiences with me. I have built up quite a selection of blogs that I go to all the time and read. They range from crafty, fashion, family life to raising awareness. I consider these to be my favorites. I have obviously nominated my favorite blogs in their respective categories. Its been lovely to read how equally elated they are too about their nominations.
So whilst I know that this stage is the end of the road for me in this years MADS. The fact that I have been nominated at all is enough of a reward for me. I would like to wish my favorite blogs the best of luck for the next stage of the nomination process. I have my fingers crossed for you all 🙂
