MADs 2013 – My Mini Voting Campaign

Its that time of year again, MAD Blog Awards 2013 has come around in the blink of an eye!! For those of you that don’t know it celebrates UK Parent Bloggers and last year I was extremely fortunate enough to get into the final 5 of the Best New Blog category. It was a a crazy brilliant night full of fun, pampering, a lot of laughs and a LOT of standing ovations for very deserved winners. I didn’t win but I have to admit I love the finalist my badge that you see right over there in the right hand margin. Yes yes….I know, saddo.

SO….This year I’m not eligible for next new blog because I’ve been blogging for almost two years now. Voting is now open for 2013 and you can see the categories have changed slightly. I kept hoping to see a “Best Toddler Blog” category because THAT would have fit me to a Tee! 🙂 Maybe next year?

But If you DO enjoy reading my blog then I think I fit into the following:

Most Entertaining Blog Or Best Family Life Blog.

I know some people have decided not to ask for votes etc but one small little post can’t hurt can it? I mean, look at presidential election campaigns. They go all out and spend billions on getting Hollywood actors to endorse them. But I don’t have that kind of cash. I’m not going to stoop that low

I was tempted to add an X Factor style sob story here but I’m not sure stepping on lego at 6.30am in the morning whilst you’re rushing to get ready for work really counts does it?

I might just show you one of Little Z’s favourite toys though…the Bond post I did yesterday got a lot of “Awws” here goes…

Cookie Monster

VoTe For ME and

CoOkie StAYs SaFe

So no blackmail…no pulling on heart strings….just Vote for ME Vote for ME!

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with letting readers know about the awards as people who don’t blog might not know about them 🙂 I have nominated you x

    I’ll certainly be voting for you in one of the categories. It can be difficult to decide though which one your blog fits into – like the idea of a toddler or even a preschooler blog. I thought about family life and family fun, but think schooldays might suit my blog better.
