If you’ve been reading my blog a while (and, um… if so, well done!) you’ll know perhaps that the last few years I have had the great fortune to be at the finals of the MAD Blog Awards. It’s been a highlight of the year. I’ve been a finalist (3 times a bridesmaid, never a bride!!) in various categories from Most Inspiring to Blog of the Year and Blog Post of the Year. It’s always been amazing, even though I haven’t won. Getting there is winning, to be honest.
Last year topped it when I stood on the stage with 9 incredible change makers and survivors; I might not have been the ‘winner’ but we all were really. It was an emotional night. It was particularly special to watch Mammywoo win Blog of the Year and Best Writer (not that I’m jealous), because she is fabulous and I love her.
One category you can’t nominate me in this year is the Craft Category (actually I have no idea if I can be a finalist at all, but don’t let that stop you making me feel good with a nomination 😉 ) because WE ARE SPONSORING IT. Our craft website, CraftMerrily, part of the Merrily Toys & Crafts Empire, is sponsoring a whole amazing category!
I’m really looking forward to seeing who is nominated in our category; why not tell me in the comments who you plan to nominate? The prize is a fab iPod Touch with camera, perfect for capturing and blogging your craftiness on the go, with a £100 hamper of our favourite craft products to go with it. You know you want to win 😉 Tweet me at @MerrilyMe or @PlayMerrily (I know the twitter biz name is confusing, sorry!) to tell me your favourite craft bloggers.
