As I’m sitting here writing this post, I still find it a little unbelievable. Last week I found out I’d been shortlisted for the Social Media Hero Award in the We Are Thirty Plus Blog Awards.
Considering my blog is still under a year old, I’m absolutely shocked and thrilled to have been nominated, let alone shortlisted along with 4 other lovely ladies! A massive thank you to anyone who nominated me, you da best ♥
I started blogging as a creative outlet for the days when my boyfriend, J, was too tired to do anything with me as he suffers from chronic fatigue. I often found myself feeling lonely and blogging was something fun I could do anywhere and any time 🙂 I found myself getting addicted to it and I’ve loved learning how to take better photographs and writing in my own voice.
I’ve made some brilliant Twitter friends through blogging, some who feel as though I’ve been close to for years; some of you might even be reading this right now (oi hai there guys!) The blogging, Twitter and Instagram communities have all been so welcoming and I love giving that positivity back 🙂
I feel truly honoured to have made it this far, and I’d love you all even more than I do already if you could take a couple of minutes to vote for my blog; you never know I might even win 😀
Voting is open until 21st July and you can vote for me here. Feel free to share this about 🙂 x
