Scared to ask… but, er, do you mind (again)?

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest features here.


Voting, voting, voting. There’s a lot of it about at the moment.

Loads of you were superkind and ticked the box for me in the UK National Blog Awards (and I’m soooo grateful), and now of course the Muddy Stilettos Awards are in full swing.

So it’s terrible timing in a way to find out that I’m shortlisted for Best Writer at the Brilliance in Blogging awards – though I can’t pretend I’m not super-happy  to be included on the list, as tens of thousands of blogs enter these awards. I’m on a shortlist of 16, and only 5 Finalists will be selected from that list. Of course any decent blogger has a loyal bunch of followers (though I think we all know who has the coolest readers!) , and they’re all currently sending out posts a bit like this one!

I know it’s a faff to do it, but can I, dare I, will I? Oh bugger it I will –  PLEASE can you vote for me?!!!  It makes such a difference to my local superblog that it’s recognised nationally because let me tell you peeps, being a professional blogger is a very new game and I need all the help I can get. If you love Muddy, help me to continue writing it!

All you have to do is follow this link, put in your name and email address, then click on Muddy Stilettos under the Best Writing category which is No 7 on the list. This form is actually super-easy and if you can’t complete it in under 20 seconds I’m a banana . Or maybe a mango. Pineappple? Meh, you choose.

Anyone who votes for me will win automatically win a holiday for 2 to the Caribbean, plus a personal concert from One Direction in their lounge. I’m not sure why I’m excited about that prize, but worryingly I really am.

That link again in case you’re too tired to lift your eyes to it. IT’S HERE. PLEASE VOTE MUDDY!!

    Done! I managed this time. Never managed the other website where you were nominated and they never replied to my e mail asking for help. Fingers crossed, eh!
