I am overjoyed with the news that I have made it to the finals in the Blog Awards Ireland 2014 in the Best Parenting Blog category. This also means I qualify in the Best Blog category. See the lovely new badge at the right hand side of the page.
This is my first year being nominated for the awards. I was delighted to be nominated, didn’t dare to hope I’d make it through the judging to the shortlist stage and now I am absolutely over the moon to have made it into the finals. I am in there with 9 other candidates, one is my very close friend Sinéad who writes Bumbles of Rice. It will be fun to go to the awards together and celebrate whatever happens. I know some of the other parenting bloggers who made it into the finals too and each and every one very deserving. It will be lovely to meet everyone on the night.
The quality of the blogs in the awards is outstanding, so many people are out there putting their hearts and souls into their blogs. A big shout out to all the bloggers out there. I helped judge the humour and group categories myself and seeing the work involved in judging, I would like to thank all the judges and of course the organisers and the sponsors.
Thanks to all the readers, I’ve plenty of regulars who comment and interact on the facebook site and twitter and you make it all worthwhile. I’ll keep doing what I’m doing and enjoy the recognition the blog is getting at the moment.
