The MAD Blog awards

I never know quite what to do about these type of things.. I must admit that writing blog posts asking if my readers would consider voting my blog for an award make me feel uncomfortable.  Perhaps it's the "Brittishness" in me.  It seems so..... rude!!! However, if there's something that blogging has taught me, in many case, if you don't ask, you don't get!!  It has to be said that writing a blog post about things like this is certainly a way to get peoples attention!!

I'll keep it short.  Chances are, if you're a blogger you already know all about the MAD Blog Awards.  The MADs are an annual award for Mum and Dad bloggers.  The MADs are are in their 4th year now.  Last year I was lucky enough to be nominated   I didn't get any further than the nominations stage, but to be honest, it was wonderful just to be nominated   There are some huge blogs out there with massive followings, I know I'm small fry, so I don't expect to be a winner, but just to have a few nominations is fantastic.  Every nomination counts, the more nominations you receive  the more likely you are to get through to the next stage (voting).

There are quite a few categories you can nominate blogs under including a "blog of the year" category.  It's easy to nominate, just head over here .  You will need to nominate a blog of the year (which can be any blog you like, mine if you fancy, but maybe you have another blog you'd like to vote for!) and once you've done so you can nominate any other blogs under the other categories.  You don't have to vote in every category.  I think the most suitable category for my blog is Fashion & Beauty - after all, most of my blog posts are style related and of course there's the Trendy Tuesday linky.  There are a few other categories I could fit into though, perhaps Pregnancy or Baby blog....

If you do choose to nominate me, thank you.  I really do mean that.  I've already done my nominations!! You have until February 18th to nominate.

Right.. that's enough begging, let normal blogging service resume!
