And the winner is. . .

Last Friday, my evening got off to an inauspicious start. I did the school run, said goodbye to the kids and then bolted off to Central London where I was meeting Mrs Adams ahead of the Vuelio Blog Awards. It was a big night as I was a finalist in the Best Dad Blog category.

I’ve scored the hat trick; I’ve attended and survived my third BritMums Live. For me, this year’s conference was a really interesting experience because I actually knew loads of real human beings who were going. Sure, I met loads of mum and dad bloggers that were new to me, but having attended twice in the past, the number of individuals I genuinely knew in real life was well into the double figures.

Thanks and I’m going to BritMums Live 2015

Late last week the finalists in the BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards (BiBs) were announced. To my amazement, I have made it through to the finals in the family category, as sponsored by Reading Eggs.

The final decision is now in the hands of the judges and we’ll find out who takes the prize at the BiBs awards ceremony at BritMums Live on 19 June. In the meantime, I wanted to thank absolutely everyone that voted for me and got me on to the shortlists and then into the finals. I can’t stress enough, your support is really appreciated and I’ve been touched by the number of supportive messages I’ve received. View Post
