So awards season is in full swing here in Blogsville.  The Brilliance in Blogging shortlist was announced and the MAD Blog awards opened immediately.  Everywhere you look bloggers are asking for votes and sharing their nominations.

Why is it so important for us bloggers (well most of us!)?

As bloggers we work away, a lot of the time in isolation, most of us working very hard behind the scenes on our blogs.  Being nominated, shortlisted or even making the final is recognition. It is a little pat on the back that let’s you know people are enjoying what you are doing.

So with very little shame, I am going to ask you if you have ever read and enjoyed my blog, I would be so grateful if you could nominate me.  So far I have been lucky enough to be nominated in Blog of the Year (wow!) and Best PreSchool Fun categories (we are not eligible for Baby blog, as Baby is too old).  I would love to get enough nominations to make it through to the voting stage.  Edited to add: and the Photography, Food, Homes & Interiors and Writer categories too!
