A little while ago, I mentioned… quite discretely and with absolutely no bouncing around on tables or wild whooping… that this blog, the Daily Echo, had been nominated for the UK Blog Awards.
The surprise was genuine… so was the honour. I did not know the person who had nominated me and I was utterly gobsmacked when I realised the email was not a joke.
The awards consider business, professional and personal blogs side by side. The prize is an opportunity to write professionally… and that I would like.
Having said that, the comments on the post I put out then were amazing…and I honestly felt as if I had already won the biggest prize possible. Which is why, when they asked me to write an overview of the blog, I included some of them. It is the people who come here and read, share, and take time to comment, becoming friends, who make this blog what it is. It is the people who make it special and who give me a reason to write every day.
Then they asked me to write a ‘Why vote for me?’ bit.
My mind went blank…then began to think in verse… and what the hell…
Voting is now open!
You can read the overview and why you could vote for the blog HERE and, if you wouldn’t mind, cast a vote for the blog too under Arts and Culture.
It would mean a lot to the Small Dog and me.
Voting closes Monday 19th December at 10.00am GMT.
