Holy crap! Thank you!
I am one of these people who gets incredibly enthused about something, sets a massive ball in motion, and then somehow forgets about the entire thing until prodded sharply months later. So it’s taken me a couple of weeks to realise that Muddy has made it through to the finals – the flippin finals! – of the UK National Blog Awards.
But now that I do know, I wanted to write a quick but heartfelt and *sob* slightly misty-eyed THANK YOU for those of you who took the time to vote for me. This part of the competition is completely a voting job, so I literally could not have progressed without your support. I know what a pain in the jacksy it can be doing this kind of thing when you’ve got your own work to do, house to sort, and your kids to scream at (oh, is that one just me?) and I’m really grateful.
I hadn’t quite realised how competitive these Awards were, but there have been thousands of entries, and there are only 10 finalists chosen nationally in each category, but thankfully Muddy has made it through in both the Best Lifestyle and also Most Innovative blog bits. If you’ve been reading Muddy for a while, you’ll know that last year I was beaten to the Most Innovative award by a blog called the OCD Squirrel (I mean, you just can’t make this stuff up can you?!) so there’s some avenging that needs to take place. I’m sorely tempted to take my air rifle and some nuts but I’ll take the public vote on that…
Anyway, I’ll keep you posted on how I get on, but in the meantime, *you*, let’s have a group hug. Fingers crossed this year I’ll do you proud and get even more drunk at the Awards night (is this even possible?), climb the 12 ft plastic golden statue for posterity, and bring a gong or two back for Bucks & Oxon.
Thank you again, Muddy readers totally rock!
