Excuse the Sally Field moment (although here I am as Kate Winslet – ish), but I’m beyond thrilled that The Mum Blog has made it to the finals of the Brit Mums Brilliance in Blogging Awards. I’m not a natural own-trumpet-blower, but I just can’t stay quiet about this one.
Yes having been shortlisted in the Go! (travel) and Outstanding! categories I’ve made it to the finals of the Go! category.
I cannot tell you how much this means to me. Travelling with No 1 Son has been such an important part of my experience as a mum, and I love travel writing and blogging. I’m not expecting to win at all – I’m practising my Pleased For The Winner face right now – but to know that some of you like my travel blogging enough to vote for me in these prestigious awards, the Oscars of the parent blogging world, means SO much to me. It’s also a fantastic endorsement of this blog, which I started just over a year ago. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you!
