Please vote for me (beg, beg) – it’s urgent!!

Hero in leopard coat

Last year your plucky local superblogger (um, me) was catapulted to the Finals of the UK National Blog Awards by a truly fantastic amount of support from my brilliant Muddy readers.

The result was so surprising that I ended up swearing on live radio (oops) – I actually went and won the goddam thing with Muddy voted the Most Innovative Blog in the UK 2015. I know, it was bonkers! It was incredibly exciting for me, as I can’t recall winning anything since the piano prize at school in 1986 when I was handed… the complete Shakespeare folio. Er, yay.

It was an even more special win because Muddy Stilettos isn’t like a beauty, fashion, health or ‘subject’ blog, of interest nationally – it’s strongly regional, only aimed at readers in Oxon, Bucks and surrounds so *sniff* it’s basically not interesting to anyone outside of the area!

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

Anyhoo, the time has come for me to have another stab at the prize – and , ahem, I’m hoping you won’t mind spending 10 seconds of your time voting for me in the competition. Literally that’s all it takes.

I’ve entered the Most Innovative and Best Lifestyle Blog categories again, and all you have to do is click here, insert your name, choose which categories to vote for (they are together in the drop down menu, it’s mega easy) and that’s it. I just voted for myself – as a test you understand lol! – in 10 seconds flat.


It’s no exaggeration to say that winning Awards like this make an ENORMOUS difference to little businesses like mine, not least because there are so few competitions I can enter – kind of ironic given that I hold my own Awards for local businesses (coming in May, since people are starting to ask!). I’m not regarded as ‘media’ so can’t go in for journalism awards and most of the magazine blog awards feature generalists like fashion, beauty and health blogging.

So the UK Blog Awards are my best shot.

If Muddy has given you any pleasure over the last year, made you giggle, or has helped you to try something new and exciting, please please (I’m trying not to beg here – oh sod it) PLEEEEEEEEEASE can you vote for me? The competition in this year’s Awards looks a bit scary, so I need the help!

The link is here. It’s literally a 10 second job. I’ve left it really late to enter, so there are only 5 days left to vote for me, so if you wouldn’t mind… ahem like, maybe now…?! Once you’ve voted you’ll automatically be entered for a Muddy exclusive £50,000 cash prize delivered by Muddy favourite David Gandy in his lamé loincloth. Truly, it’s the least I can do.
