Awards Seasons: It’s My Turn To Plea.

Last week there has been a surge of waves after waves of a posts from wonderful blogs after wonderful blogs pleaded everyone to vote for them. I on the other hand… was still pondering whether to enter and make a plead post or not… I don’t know if I am ready for the disappointment yet. But yes, it would be rather nice just to get one or a few nominations.

And to my surprised today, even before I wrote this post I had been nominated for MADBlog Awards Best Preschool Blog by Sarah from Admissions of a Working Mother! I am so chuffed! Thank you so much Sarah for your vote! That’s Awesome! I am flattered and very happy! 🙂 X X X

I’ll take anything! 😉

    Good luck, good luck. It’s horrible in a way, isn’t it? I feel like I’m back at school. I’m putting in for ‘new blog’ and ‘fresh voice’ because I’ve only been doing this for 3 months and there are plenty of amazing contenders in those categories, let alone the more established ones. Best of luck indeed and thank you for hosting! #fabfridaypost

    Woop woop! I think it’s great that Bloggers put themselves forward for these awards and let they’re readers know what categories they are best suited for. At the end of the day we all work hard on our sites – these stories and photos and linkys don’t happen by magic – they happen from our hard work and dedication.
    You deserve your noms because your blog has great content and you are a very community orientated blogger who helps and shares and works with other bloggers.
    Thanks for the mention xxxx #fabfridayposr
