Last year, I was lucky enough to win the Company Style Blogger Award for Best Fashion Blog – Newcomer (WAA!). After blogging for just under a year I couldn’t quite believe it, the support from you guys was incredible and really made me realise how much of an impact blogging was having on my life – in a completely positive way.
There can be some negativity that goes along with ‘these sort’ of awards. Is it just publicity for the mag and brands associated with it? Are bloggers just being used? To be totally honest, I have no idea where these claims come from – they’re a total load of tosh. Firstly, it brings us bloggers so much closer together. Showing our support for one another in nominations and when it actually comes to the event itself, we get to meet so many wonderful people that we feel we’ve known a lifetime through Twitter – it’s amazing, really.
Secondly, actually winning an award is completely and utterly overwhelming. To know that people care enough about your blog to take the time to vote really means more than I can explain. After winning, the traffic on my blog went through the roof, my inbox was inundated with crazy amazing opportunities and I’ve found myself feeling proud, for the first time. I’ve created this bloggy, and I have no shame in saying, internet, that it’s because I’ve worked really bloody hard. Those opportunities are continuing to grow and Company gave me that stepping stone I needed to realise how important blogging is to me. Something I won’t ever forget. It's 100% worth entering, it could open up doors you never knew existed and give you the confidence to do what you want with your blog. Why the hell not, y'know?
This year the awards are back, and they’re bigger and better than ever – Missguided are the new sponsors which is bloomin’ awesome...Not only because their clothes are fabulous, but because they're offering every person who votes the opportunity to win £250 worth of vouchers to spend in their store! Woohoo!
It would mean the absolute world (x1000) if I had your vote again this year. I’d love to be considered for nomination in the Best Fashion Blog category (second from bottom on the drop down selection). It’s super simples to vote and only takes a few seconds, just have your email address ready, copy and paste the link to my blog and jot down a few words on why you think I deserve it and you’re good to go! You can vote as many times as you like, so if you're feeling super generous, vote to your hearts content ;). I know to some it's no biggy, but it really means so much to me, and I appreciate every single one of you who takes the time xxx
Thank you SO much if you choose to vote for me and wishing heaps of luck and love to any other lovely bloggers entering this year!
