It’s one of the few frustrations writing Muddy Stilettos that I seem to fall between gaps in terms of entering competitions.

I love a shiny trophy as much as the next girl, but big blogging competitions often require broad ‘national’ subjects like beauty, fashion or mummydom, and Muddy Stilettos, being so niche and local just doesn’t fit.

On the other hand, local media awards don’t work for me either – last year I couldn’t enter the Bucks press awards because ‘blog’ was not a category, even though I commercially compete with local mags and newspapers. *GRRRRR*.

But looky here! I have stumbled across the ‘Rural Oscars’ – the Countryside Alliance Awards. Apparently they support rural enterprise. Well, hey, that’s me right?!

There’s a Start-up Award that has my muddy prints all over it (I’ve been going professionally for less than a year), and I would super-appreciate it if you could vote. I get nothing out of it financially – alas, no windfalls of £50,000 or invitations onto the board at twitter – but any publicity is always welcome as it will help me to grow.

It takes literally seconds to vote so please follow this link and if you love what I do, vote Muddy!

    Like the ads but we all look better after a professional has done our make up. It’s the number of products used that I find bewildering. I just don’t have the time nor inclination to spend that long on make up.
