Holy craparoo! We’re in the UK Blog Awards Finals!

19 Feb 2017

 

It’s been such a crazy year so far that I somehow forgot to tell you some really amazing news from *cough* last month. Oops!

So it’s a massive and heartfelt thank you for those of you who suggested Muddy Stilettos as the UK’s Best Arts & Culture Blog before Christmas, because guess what? We’ve only gone and made the Finals, one of only eight companies in the whole of the UK. I know, holy craparoo!

I am a fully fledged grown-up with urbane tastes. Really.

Chances of winning are slimmer than my fantasy version of myself (and we’re talking shaving 12 inches off either side here) as we’re up against the might of companies like Oxford’s Bodliean Library and the whole of flippin English Heritage. I’m feeling a bit sweaty just thinking about that, truth be told. But I’m happy to have made this far – for all my witterings I do secretly take arts and culture very seriously (shhhhhh) and I’m all for thinking that miracles can happen, so watch this space.

The winner is announced in April so I’ll let you know then how it goes. In the meantime, at ease soldier, continue as you were, and thank you again for being so awesome and supportive.

    Many congrats. I’d rather read your blog than the Bodliean’s or English Heritage’s any day. Fingers crossed x

    Your a winner to all of us who read your bloggs, regardless of the final results. I am certainly not a great lover of the social media scene. I consider myself a complete IT numpty. Constant advertising emails, drive me mad. I spend 15 minutes each morning pressing DELETE …………..bore bore and yawn yawn. Unless of course its you. All the very best and good luck against big cheese bloggers XX
