It’s that time of year again when bloggers in their masses flock to enter the UK Blog Awards – one of few annual awards that recognises a huge span of categories, industries and individuals.
I’ve entered Shelley Makes into this year’s Arts and Culture category which is quite diverse, featuring everything from theatre and film reviews, to sculpture and craft tutorials – ever so broad!
Over the years the UK Blog Awards has recognised some fantastic blogger talent. Last year, the unstoppable Natasha from Graphique Fantastique, whom I greatly admire, was Highly Commended in the Arts & Culture category (and the year before that she won Best Young Persons’ blog).
My good friend and old colleague Lauren, and her blogging partner Felicity, won the Fashion and Retail category in 2015 with Pretty, Posh, Oh My Gosh. Back in the day, Lauren and I would head to the local park on our lunch breaks to do an impromptu photoshoot for PPOMG. My claim to fame!
I was also really pleased to see the wonderful Faya from Fitness on Toast as the Lifestyle finalist, having worked with her (in a PR capacity) on brand campaigns in the past – a worthy winner!
Entries are open until 29th December, and then the public vote will commence on the 4th January, at which point I might light-heartedly harass you to vote for me (if you’d like to!)
