Turns Out I Am Mad After All

MAD Blog Awards 2011

Well, who would have thought that little old me who posted her first crap blog post called 'New Year New Blog' on 31st December 2010 would be sat here less than 5 months later saying "I'm a Mad Blog Award Finalist"?

That's the news I was alerted to via Twitter on Tuesday.  Eek!

Sorry for the delay in this post but we've been away down south to Hampshire for the last 2 days to visit Peppa Pig World (more on that next week!).

I know everyone will be saying this but to say I'm shocked is a total understatement.

I actually blogged about the Mad Awards when the nominations came out and I found out what I had been put forward for.  I never thought I'd get through be an actual finalist and to be nominated for 'Best New Blog' is something I'm actually extremely proud of.  Jeez, sorry...it's beginning to sound like an acceptance speech!

Anyway, I just wanted to write this post to say a sincere and mahoooooosive "THANK YOU" to each and every one of you who voted for me.

My family and close friends (apart from one) aren't aware of this blog and I'm not on Facebook so to know I've been nominated by fellow bloggers and new friends is completely overwhelming. It still hasn't really sunk in. If I could kiss and hug you all personally I would, even though you probably wouldn't want me to because I smell after being in the car most of the day and eating Burger King for lunch!

I'm sad that some of the people that I originally voted for in the first round didn't make it through but pleased that others did.

I'm up against some seriously stiff competition in the 'Best New Blog' category but just to make it through is amazing.

Remember to vote for your favourite blogs before the closing date of 14th June 2011.  You can do so by clicking on the links within this post or the badge at the top right of my blog.

Thank you again xx

I was over the moon when I saw you were a finalist. As you may be aware I am a big fan of yours (ok, bordering on the stalker side at times)

You totally deserve to be in the final and I am rooting for you to win!

No it doesn't sound like an acceptance speech, you're right to feel so chuffed because it's fantastic news. Big congratulations to you, it's a wonderful pat on the back for such fantastic blogging. xxx

LUCEWOMAN said...

Congratulations, it's well deserved! You have obviously devoted a lot of time and effort to your blog, but the actual 'feel' of it is very natural. You've either 'got it' or you haven't when it comes to speaking via a blog-you've GOT IT!
