Brilliance in Blogging Awards: nominations

IMG_7360Every year, BritMums hosts the BiBs – Brilliance in Blogging Awards – at their BritMums Live! event in the summer.

Yesterday, voting opened for this year’s awards & closes at midnight on April 12th.

It goes without saying that I would be absolutely over the moon to win one of these awards.

Bump, Baby & Me has been my sanctuary for the past seventeen months, my little thing just for me at a time in my life when I could have so easily lost myself in diapers, nursery rhymes & bodily functions. It’s helped me rediscover my love of writing & kept my brain active during a year off work. 

It’s been a learning curve, not just about becoming a Mama but also in ‘the art of blogging’. 

To everyone who has read my blog, thank you so much for your support. You don’t know what it feels like at the end of the day to log on & see ‘x’ amount of people have come to my blog to read the ramblings of a sleep deprived new Mama. 

But, dear reader, I have a favour to ask of you.

To be shortlisted for a BiB, you must first be nominated by the masses. So, if you have ever enjoyed my blog, please take just a moment to nominate me here using the information below. You can only fill in the form once.
