The BiB Awards 2014

BRILLIANCE IN BLOGGING 2014

So, it's blogging award season and if you are a regular follower of my blog or my social media accounts then you will have seen me allude to catching a couple of votes in the BiBs.  You may even have noticed the funky little badges I've placed on my sidebar >>>

'BiB' stands for 'Brilliance in Blogging' and whilst I'm not sure I'd call my blog brilliant, I thought I would throw caution to the wind.  I know (roughly) how many wonderful people come back to read my blog time and again and for that reason I am sending out a request...if you regularly visit us here, enjoy sharing in our family adventures, or have had a giggle or two at some of our mishaps then please consider voting for Catch A Single Thought.

When I started my blog almost two years ago, I had no idea of what I was doing.  I wanted to write, to keep a record of what we were getting up to as a family; I only read one other blog on a regular basis so I really hadn't the first clue about what I was getting myself into!

Not only is there a fantastic and supportive blogging community out there but I am still, to this day, stunned by the responses I have had to simply writing about who we are as a family.

There are many fabulous blogs around but I have to admit that I am proud of my little corner.  I often scroll back through old posts and still can't believe I have dedicated so much time to writing this and that so many wonderful people continue to visit and read.

In terms of asking for votes, I will be terribly British about it, cough, shuffle a bit and then say that if even a fraction of the people reading this took the time to place a vote for my little blog then I might actually stand a (small) chance of making it onto a shortlist...you never know, right?!

If I'm swaying you to my side, then there are a couple of categories where I believe we fit:

- Social Media 
- Family
- Writer

If you think we are suitable for any others than would also be amazing.

You can find the nomination form here and it doesn't take long to complete.  You do need to know a bit of information about the blog...

- Copy and paste the URL
- My twitter ID is @jjmcglynn
- You can find my old posts on the right hand side bar, just scroll down to find your favourite

This blog has been an amazing journey for me so far and I am really excited to watch it grow and develop.  I wrote a while ago about how I will never compete with the bigger blogs out there and whilst I still stand by that, and I truly love what I have here, I'm not going to pretend that gaining a few votes of confidence from my lovely readers wouldn't be a nice boost!

Virtual kisses, wine and cake coming round now...
