My BritMum’s Brilliance in Blogging Awards Journey

Caroline Mentzer My daughter wont sleep wins BritMums Bibs2014For those of you who read the blog and have been following my BritMum’s Brilliance in Blogging Awards Journey, I’m proud and honoured to announce that…

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!

  1. Congratulations again gorgeous girl! It was lovely to meet you and celebrate together on the night. I’m sure your award has pride of place at home now, as does mine! Well deserved xx

  2. Congratulations on your win – I remember clapping and saying to all ‘I can totally relate’ when I heard the name of your blog being called the winner. I am still a little freaked out by the awards – it feels surreal somehow. I am so glad I attended Britmums Live – it has given me so many ideas, and drive to continue blogging. But the biggest plus for me is meeting other bloggers in the ‘flesh’ and spending time with them. The sense of community, of being part of something big, was incredible. I can’t wait to attend again next year.

    • Thank you! I totally agree, it was an amazing opportunity to meet fellow bloggers as it can be a lonely business on your own at home. I met so many inspiration people and will definitely be going next year. See you there!

  3. Sorry, I am a bit late to the party here, and I am also taking a blogging break over the summer too. Thank you for coming over and commenting on my blog, that was really nice. And many congratulations on your award too – you must be feeling very proud. :o)
