Last night was the awards ceremony for the UK Blog Awards. I had planned to do a run-up post yesterday showing you my outfit and all sorts, but life is most definitely getting in the way at the moment and so it was all I could do to run out of the house wearing a cocktail frock in time to get to the venue in London.
Yeh, yeh, I can hear you saying, stop whining Helen, cut to the chase. What did you win?
Well………….I got the Highly Commended Award for Individual Health Blog.
I was a little bit excited to say the least – there was some squealing and a four-letter word as I saw my face flash up on the screen. I’ve got a certificate and everything – look up the top there.
Admittedly that means you’re not reading THE best health blog in the UK (that is Chris’s Cancer Community) but you are reading one of the next best (The Limping Chicken was also highly commended) and that works for me.
So thanks to all of you who voted to get me in the final – and to the judges who decided that this blog was prizeworthy, even though it does write about fluffy stuff like high protein ice cream.
All in all it was a fun night out and I got to meet some great people. Nic from Nicsnutrition who I’ve spoken to on the phone but never actually seen in person, Julie from The Fat Girls Guide To Running, Hero from Muddy Stilettos and Rona from Flowerona.
