I am very happy to tell you that I have made it onto the short list for the BritMums’ Brilliance in Blogging Awards (BiBs). It would appear that I’m not funny enough to make it into the Laugh category but I am new enough to be included in the Fresh Voice category aka the Newbs, the Jonny Come Latelys, the New Kids on the Block (hangin’ tough, just like Donny Wahlberg and his homies).
There are 16 bloggers on the short list and this will be reduced to a super short list of 6 through an X Factor style public vote (kind of). It would mean so much to me to make it to the final 6 having battled through an ineptitude at every kind of sport, the death of several goldfish and being married to a ginger (come on, every public vote needs some kind of tragic back story). You can vote for me here by selecting Perfume and Trumps in the Fresh Voice category, which is the first one on the list.
You can only vote once so use it wisely! Can I recommend that as well as voting for moi you cast a vote for my friend Juggle Mum in the Video category (this is my friend, my inspiration and blogging Yoda, Nadine Hill).
Go on then, what are you waiting for?… VOTE!!
Voting closes on the 16th May and the finalists will be announced on 23rd May. The winners will be revealed in a swanky hopefully-champagne-fuelled ceremony on Friday 20th June at BritMums Live. If it helps your decision I can offer to cry like Gwyneth Paltrow, fall over like Jennifer Lawrence and storm the stage/rugby tackle the host like Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine at the awards party. (They’ll let me off, I’m a Newb!). Besides which, the need to get into some kind of evening gown AND the prospect of plummeting to my death and that of all my fellow passengers in a hot air balloon (see previous blog) might just push me to lose a few pounds. Pah, who am I kidding?!
Now, which babies do I have to kiss to make this happen?…
