Hello my lovely Gammon and Chips followers!
Well, this is a first for me. As a newbie blogger, I have no real idea what the whole ‘blog awards’ thing entails, but it sounds like lots of fun, and seems to be a really good way of getting your blog out and about, so I figured ‘why not? I may as well put myself out there’.
You see, nominations are now open for the 2013 MAD Blog Awards and I would really like Gammon and Chips to be one of the parenting blogs considered.
If you like what I’ve written so far, and have found yourself trying to suppress chuckles picturing things I’ve done with Yu Yee Oil, then maybe you could get yourself over to the MAD Blog Awards site and nominate little old me.
I would be humbly grateful, and may even name my third born child after you (OK, OK, that’s not really fair, because there is never going to be a third born child… and if there was, I think we would naturally have to call it ‘Egg’ to fit in with ‘Gammon’ and ‘Chips’. Don’t laugh… nobody thought it was a silly name on ‘This Life’).
Anyway, enough of my ramblings. If you are compelled to, click on the 2013 MAD Blog Awards logo at the top of this post and feel free to nominate www.gammonandchips.com in any (or all) of the following categories:
• MAD Blog of the Year
• Best Blog Writer
• Best Family Travel Blog
• Best New Blog
• Best Family Life Blog
• Best MAD Blog for Family Fun
• Most Entertaining Blog
I am definitely going for a ‘scattergun’ approach there, aren’t I?! But also feel free to visit some of the blogs that I follow (list on the right hand column of my page) and nominate them too! Nominations close at midnight on Monday 18th February, and then the 4 blogs with the most nominations in each category will be chosen as Finalists (with an extra ‘judges choice’ blog being added too).
Thank you to everyone who reads Gammon and Chips. It’s been such a brilliant thing to have added to my life in the past year. I’m really enjoying writing it, and I hope you are enjoying reading it too.
Cyber love to you all!
