Yes that’s right. Have you seen the new badge on my blog home page?! Indeed I am a MAD Blogger, a Finalist in the Best Home Blog Category in the MAD Blog Awards 2012.
Today I awoke to multiple messages from another blogger who shall remain nameless (but you know who you are!) tweeting and calling me from 6am.
“Wake up @lovechicliving”
“Are you up yet, please GET UP @lovechicliving”
“Let’s go dress shopping @lovechicliving”
A few calls and voicemails. Wow she was persistent. And this is how I found out that I am a Finalist. Little old me with my very new blog. Oh yes, my terribly enthusiastic blogger friend is also a Finalist hence the heightened level of excitement.
When I was nominated I never dreamt that my blog would reach the Finals. There were 3,000 different blogs nominated across the categories and over 50,000 nominations. Good grief!! So to say I am proud, excited, overwhelmed, stunned and shocked is a complete and utter understatement. I am all of those things and then some. And I’m in the company of some extremely well established and wonderful home blogs.
If you voted for me in the first round then THANK YOU.
I have now been invited to the Ceremony, to take place in London at a very lovely hotel in September. There will be cocktails, dinner and dancing and, of course, the Awards. I might even get a new frock! The prize? Well it’s £250 of Vertbaudet children’s bedroom furniture and accessories. Very nice indeed.
If you have time and feel inclined you can further my dream and vote for me TO WIN in my category. Here’s the link The MADS Vote Now – scroll down to Best Home Blog and click vote now.
