When I started blogging I had ZERO idea that it was such a big thing, especially in the UK and Australia. Those UK bloggers do not fuck around. They are the OG’s of the blogging world and I bow down to them, truly. In my mind they are the blog mecca, the masters. Well apparently the UK celebrates blogging with all sorts of really amazing award ceremonies and events, one being the BiBs, or Brilliance in Blogging hosted by Britmums. Being over in the states I haven’t paid much attention to these nominations and awards other than to give my fellow bloggers virtual high fives when they have been nominated for their work.
And then we got nominated and I thought well damn! Perhaps I should clue in to see what this hoopla is all about. Every Monday I link a few posts up to Debbie’s awesome blog My Random Musings and last week she wrote a post on the Bibs offering suggestions to bloggers looking for nomination suggestions and there we were in the Fresh Voice Category. I might have peed myself a bit just getting a nod. I am not exactly a win-machine. I think once in third grade I won a pencil because my lunch tray had the “star” drawn on the bottom.
So this is very cool and I am truly honored that people find my writing that amusing and interesting. If you would like to contribute to my chances of winning anything since the elusive Lunch Line Pencil you can go HERE to the Bibs and nominate our blog in the Fresh Voice Category.
Thanks again to Debbie at My Random Musings and to everyone who reads my shit and continues to share and support our little blog. It has really been one hell of a year.
