Yesterday I discovered that I have been chosen out of hundreds as one of the top five bloggers in the travel blog category for The Bloggers’ Lounge Blogger of the Year Awards 2014. Cue a big gasp, shriek and a girly, high pitch squeal (in that order).
“We love your site…we’re really excited to have you as a finalist.” Cue a ridiculous giddy jump around the room (or two).
They’re excited? I’m super excited!
This week really has been amazing. I’ll be sharing why in my usual month-end round-up in the next few days, but I just couldn’t wait to share this exciting news with you. You’ll probably be fully aware of my impatience by now. No matter how hard I try, I don’t think I will ever be one of those patient types. I salute my imaginary hat to you if you’re one of them.
The Bloggers’ Lounge Blogger of the Year Awards 2014
So, what happens next? Well, now that The Bloggers’ Lounge has shortlisted me as a finalist, it’s over to the public vote. Voting is literally a matter of clicking the button next to Taylor Hearts Travel and clicking ‘Vote’. Two clicks – how easy is that?! You don’t have to sign-up to anything and you don’t even have to vote in each category if you don’t want to. You can find the voting page here.
Even if you haven’t got the time or inclination (*sob*) to vote, I hope you’ll join me in a celebratory, cheesy smile. :) I know mine will be staying here for a while. I’ll save the acceptance speech for another day (hopefully) – you guys know how much I appreciate you visiting this space on the net and for sharing your love of travel with me.
The voting period closes on 16 December 2014 at 5.30pm, with the winner announced the following day. I’m in the company of some really good blogs, so fingers crossed! I’ll let you know when I hear anything.
If you do vote for me, drop me a Tweet using #BLAwards or leave a comment here so I can thank you personally. Big, big hugs. X
