The UK Blog Awards have just announced the shortlist for round 2 of the 2019 awards. (I say shortlist, but there are 100’s of bloggers shortlisted in so many different categories). I’m super excited to see my name up there.
What is it?
“The mission of The UK Blog Awards is to recognise the unique and resonant nature of the Internet community – from bloggers to Social Influencers and through organisations and individual creators. The UK Blog Awards is the most prestigious, and the only, multi-industry awards honouring online excellence. Now in its sixth year, The UK Blog Awards continues to celebrate the most resonant and engaging content creators in the UK, those inside and outside of the prevailing trends” – UK Blog Awards
How to vote?
Vote for me here! You can only vote once in each category and the final decision for the bloggers that make it through to the next round is 40% based on the vote and 60% based on the judge’s criteria for blog content and style. I think this is fantastic, it gives smaller bloggers a more even playing field compared to those with a larger following.
Who won last year?
Last year in the travel category Along Dusty Roads won and when you look at their site you can see why. The photography is epic and winning the awards has skyrocketed their success. I love the UKBA offer a highly commended winner too, so second place is just as good!
I don’t really imagine I’ll win, but you’ve got to start somewhere and every time I publish a blog post, my writing, editing and creative voice is getting better. After all, it takes 10 years to become an overnight success…
