Well not only my week but my year was made this week when I found out that I have made as a finalist in the MAD Blog awards run by Tots 100 and I am over the moon! Basically it is like the BAFTA’s but for parent bloggers and maybe not as glamorous but I do intend on getting a pretty dress for the awards party!
I really am still very overwhelmed by it, but so excited and thrilled and I thank you so much if you were someone who nominated me. This has given me a confidence boost that I really needed.
I have been selected as a finalist for the Best Family Fun category and I just feel that this fits my blog so well. We love having fun as a family, and recording all our memories and I hope you witness that in the craft and cooking activities, Family Frolics and other antics that we get up to.
My blog started as a spontaneous moment of madness after commenting on another blogger blog, and it asking if I wanted to make my own. I was at a point in my life when I has three children under 18 months and felt like I needed away to express myself and record our family Journey along way – the great bits, the worrying bits and the damn right crazy! All that you get with kids in toe. Since then I have moved to self hosted wordpress and been lucky enough to have had some wonderful experiences as a family. Blogging has truly become a part of my life.
I have met many great bloggers, one of them being Emma from Mummymummymum my now Science Sparks partner (which when you think about it sounds slightly mad that I have gone into business with someone I met online) but it has worked wonderfully.
What’s more Science Sparks blog that I co-write with her has also made it to the finals in two categories – Most innovative blog and Best school days blog!
I am so over the moon to be a finalist. You have no idea how happy this has made me and again I thank you so much.
So it is voting time again I’m afraid. If you enjoy my blog for all the family fun that it offers I would really appreciate your vote and additionally is you are a Science Sparks fan votes there too! In the meantime I am going to start thinking party frock for the awards night.
Thank you so much for your constant support.
Hugest virtual hugs ever!
