I CAME TOP of the Health Category!
On Friday the 20th June at BritMum’s Live Bibs2014 I met a wonderful collective of influential and inspiring bloggers at The Brewery in London’s Old Street. With a crowd of 700 dressed up lovelies (and a few gents), it was a glamorous event presented by famous mummy blogger Katy Hill no less (you may remember her from Blue Peter). Meeting my blogging community in person was truly wonderful.
For those of you who don’t know, the BiBs is one of the most popular and prestigious blogger awards in the UK. Taking place annually, it highlights the best of parent lifestyle blogging and is an opportunity to recognise the most creative, inventive and compelling blogs.
Last year there were more than 200,000 nominations and votes. So, you can imagine how thrilled I am.
When I was shortlisted in May I was invited to talk on BBC Radio Oxford, Siren FM and had some coverage in local newspapers and the popular Mother & Baby Magazine. If you would like to listen to or read the articles please click here.
Awards Sponsors – Kids Company UK
The Health Category Award sponsors are KIDS COMPANY a charitable organisation founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh in 1996 which provides practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children.
This is a charity close to my own heart, because they share the same ethos as I do, which aims to provide a supportive, safe and caring family environment tailored to the individual needs of every child. Despite extreme challenges that these children face, KIDS COMPANY’S work empowers them to lead positive and fulfilling lives, with an opportunity to achieve their full potential. We are honoured to be associated with this noble charity by means of these Awards.
Melissa and I would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU ALL from the bottom of OUR hearts for your continued support. I am overwhelmed by everyone’s belief in me, and Melissa is chuffed to see her picture in the newspaper. All your encouragement has motivated me to keep writing, and I can’t believe how much I’ve enjoyed the journey so far!
It has allowed me to continue doing what I love best, which is to help parents overcome difficult parenting challenges and improve children’s health and well-being.
The Award Ceremony was one of the biggest highlights of my life. I will remember it forever. You have made one blogging lady very happy. Thank you!
