Every year since 2012 the Blog Awards has been a highlight of our calendar year. Granted, I was hitherto attending as a plus one, as my hubby’s blog www.tablequiz.net was a finalist in two categories – twice – and I was but the poor relation who made the shortlist but never quite made it to the ball…
Fast-forward to this year and I featured on the shortlist once again, but I figured it’d be a case of history repeating itself so we didn’t make any plans to attend the awards. In fact, I was so sure I wouldn’t feature as a finalist, I picked the weekend of the awards to move house.
And then I won!
Despite a lovely evening of twitter congratulations, even now I feel like a bit of a fraud typing the words “Winner of Best Education Blog”!
You know what they say, if a tree falls in the woods, yadda, yadda, yadda…
Well, suffice it to say that because I wasn’t there I’m still not convinced it actually happened! Perhaps once I manage to collect this lovely hunk of glass off Simon Lewis, I’ll become a believer…
In the meantime, it would be remiss of me not to offer sincere thanks to the judges and to my readers who have made my blogging experience such a positive, interactive and rewarding experience. I raise a glass to you all from the comfort of my new couch!
