So, it turns out that I’m a finalist in the 2007 Weblog Awards. Apparently I’m one of the ten best UK blogs. I’m not sure how stiff the competition is because, at the time I write, there aren’t links to anyone in my category (grrr), but I’m sure they are all glitteringly wonderful and that I stand no chance of winning. It sure is nice to be nominated however.
This news, as you might expect, has pretty much knocked me for a loop. I first saw that I’d been nominated this morning when Lifecruiser and Abi told me in the comments. Now, I was drinking my morning cup of tea at the time I read the comment. I jumped up from the table to do a little Woot! of joy, tripped over the table leg, knocked the table, split my tea (narrowly missing my computer), and then I stubbed my toe.
The pain is worth it though. It’s the first time I’ve been nominated for anything!
Clearly I got this nomination because
the armies of 9rules went out and did their “nominate THIS person or you’ll regret it” thing I totally rock and rule the world
Seriously, however I got it, I am ready to be bowled over by something that is very good at bowling people over. And yes, I will be bragging about it down the pub tonight! (I am that sad)
So, what can you do now? Well, the best thing you can all do, dear readers, is hike your cute little behinds over to the voting page and vote for me. You can vote once a day till the closing date, which is the 8th November.
There are oodles of other awards which I’m not up for, but other spankingly great blogs are, so whilst you’re there I would recommend seeing if any of your other favourite blogs are included in the list.
I refuse to pick favourites, but you could do worse than voting for my One True Blog Love, Roro in the Best Individual Blogger category. (I did a genuine punch-the-air, YES! when I saw her on the list).
Come on people, I need you. Bright Meadow is only as fantastic as it is because I know y’all are out there, reading, waiting and commenting, constantly forcing me to up my game. So I need you a bit more now – vote for me.
Please? If nothing else I want to be able to go “ner-nerny-ner-ner” and stick my tongue out at my brother this Christmas for daring to say my blog is “silly”. Who said sibling rivalry can’t spur you to greatness?
