I really enjoyed last years BBAW – it was fun and I ‘met’ lots of great bloggers. It was also a bit different from this years ‘registration’ in that everyone could nominate anyone, I didn’t have to nominate myself like this year. I was totally blown away last year, having only been blogging for two months at the time, at being nominated for Best New Blog, alas I wasn’t short-listed but it was still a great honour.
This year I feel a bit funny – having to nominate myself – it’s difficult, especially when it comes to the features category of ‘Best Written Blog’ – but there are times when I like what I’ve written and feel kind of proud of myself, so I thought, why not – what have I got to lose
I’m a bit disappointed that there are no “fun” awards this year like ‘Most Extravagant Giveaways’, ‘Best Meme or Carnival Event’ or ‘Best Blog Design’ – I loved those awards and it made BBAW extra fun. Oh well…
So, as requested by those behind BBAW, I have selected the posts that best reflect my blog *well I hope I have* It was really difficult, but I think I’m now happy with my selection.
