Please please pleasey please Vote Muddy!
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Blog Awards features here.
It’s been a year since a blog called the OCD Squirrel (nope *sigh* I’m not kidding) beat me to take the title of Most Innovative Blog at the UK Blog Awards, and it still irritates like a stiletto in the eye!
Anyway, since my defeat, I’ve had time to dust myself off, steel myself for once more for battle, and am making a CHARRRRRGGGGGGEEEEE! again, in the vain hope that I may be the elegant bride this year rather than the embarrassing bridesmaid (see my drunken performance from last year’s ceremony, grappling with the statue. Oh dear.).
You probably realise this already, but winning awards is massively important to little businesses like mine, and because Muddy is strongly local rather than national, or even international like beauty, health and fashion it’s wayyy harder for me to generate the votes needed. (Excuse me, I just have to – *sob* – dab my eyes a second).
The simple fact is that if I don’t get enough votes I won’t get through to the finals.
So…. if Muddy has given you any pleasure at all over the last year, if you’ve tried anything through the blog, if I’ve raised a laugh or given you an excuse to stop work for a moment, or helped you plan something special, please please can you vote for me? It literally takes a couple of clicks.
This year I’ve entered two sections:
You can vote for me in either category but for those who vote for me in both, I’ll organise a large pot of gold and some supersonic breasts for you with immediate effect. That’s a Muddy promise.
There are only 2 weeks to vote and you know what life is like, you’ll start plucking your eyebrows or putting on the washing, or getting drunk, or working through your new box set, or getting drunk (again), and your good intentions will have slipped away.
Given you’re reading this right now (!), would you mind very much clicking on the two links above, where it states the two categories I’m entering, and follow the instructions? It will take 10 seconds for each, I promise – just your name and email address and *click*.
Thank you sooooo much, I truly do appreciate it. Let’s flush out that squirrel!
