I nearly did a wee with excitement when I saw that I was on the shortlist for the BiBs. For those of you who are not familiar, this is not some kind of spillage catching device to pop round ones neck, (tho I could certainly do with using one of those after a drink or two!), but the Brilliance in Blogging awards. I can think of several adjectives beginning with B I may have used to describe my blogging; blithering, boring, and bewildering are the first 3 that spring to mind, but BRILLIANT, never! Thank you VERY much to those who nominated me, being on the short list for Fresh Voice in this years awards is a hugely wonderful thing.
At this point I should be asking you to pop here and vote for me to get through to the finals, and if you do I kiss your face with glee, however I have seen the rest of the nominees on the list- and there isn’t a duffer amongst them!
Take Mummy Never Sleeps, and Just A Normal Mum – these two blogs are just awesome, so awesome I had no idea they were newbies like me! They are both capable of making you cry, both with laughter and emotion, and would be worthy winders indeed.
Then there are two blogs that are even newer still, so new that they have both only come to my attention in the last couple of months – Victoriananana and The Pigeon Pair and Me. Both of these share incredible writing, and once you have read a post or two by their wonderful writers I guarantee you will be back for more.
And that’s just 4, there is another 11 blogs of UTTER BRILLIANCE on the Fresh Voice shortlist alone, which you can read over at BritMums, along with all the short lists for the other categories. And speaking of other categories, I am giddy that so many epic blogs that I simply adore are on those lists too. But there are also many utterly top notch blogs that are not on the final lists, and I would love to give all of them an award tooooo.
