Brit Mums Brilliance In Blogging Awards.
I am not having the greatest of weeks. I am just over tired, have lots of work on and am generally feeling a little run down. Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but just not feeling my best. But today I found out some news that has certainly made me feel better.
Almost exactly a year ago (its my blog's 1 year anniversary next week) I sat down at my computer and decided to make a blog. Struggling with a name, I looked over at my little 12 week old baby who was asleep on her playmat and saw on her vest a simple sentence- 'Mummy Daddy and Me makes Three.' And that was that, my blog was born. I didn't know if I was going to keep it up as I am not known for my sticking power, but for some reason I was soon absolutely hooked. As my little blog started to grow, I soon got fully immersed into the blogging community and since then I have never looked back.
A year ago I had no idea about blogging. Since then I have met some amazing people, been to som incredible events and made some real life friends. I have found a passion and a hobby that is completely and utterly mine. My husband is a designer and we have found a shared interest that we both love- I have started to design as well and I adore it.
But blogging has bought me so much more than that. It has bought me a job of sorts as well. Having always been involved in online marketing, my husband and I set up our company Pink Egg Media- a social media, web and graphic design business. Its only small at the moment but I am hoping one day I can make it my full time work. I am also loving helping him do blog design as well, and I feel such a sense of satisfaction when we create a blog for someone and they love it- after all it is such a personal thing.
Today I found out that I had been nominated and shortlisted in the Brit Mums Brilliance in Blogging awards. To even be nominated is a complete shock. but to actually be shortlisted means the world to me. It sounds silly but its true- blogging has become a huge part of my life and I feel honoured to have been recognized.
I have been nominated in the Style category. This means a lot as I do try and make my blog a pretty and stylish thing to read. I love design and I try to be as creative as I can on here, it certainly brings out my creative side. I am up against some incredible bloggers, some who have been around a long time so I have more chance of Elvis Presley landing in my back garden in a spaceship than winning, but I do really appreciate it.
If you do fancy voting for me, I would be very grateful. There is soon going to be a little link in my sidebar but in the meantime you can use this form- just find the Style shortlist and vote Mummy Daddy and Me makes Three.
Thanks so much to whoever nominated me- I definately feel chuffed to pieces.
