I’m very over the moon to share with you my most exciting news … drum roll … I’ve been nominated for my first ever award.Â It was a total shock to receive a phone call yesterday to tell me that I was a finalist as “Best Entertainment Blog” for the Nuffnang Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2011 … I had absolutely no idea and I’m so grateful and humbled by the nomination thank you.Â As you know I’ve kept my site gossip free, and have a strong focus on only writing positive stories and that will always continue to be the case, I don’t believe in snark or gossip, and I’m so glad that it’s hit a note with my readers.
I started my business over six years ago, I really had no idea where the path would lead me, I thought it would be easy to bring a brand to life but it’s been the hardest slog to say the least but I have had a lot of fun on the way and I’m looking forward to the new things that I have up my sleeve for 2012.Â I’m not going to bore you with all the trials and tribulations of my six years online but I am definitely proud of what I’ve achieved and I couldn’t have done it without the support of you to keep me going … there have many many times when I have just wanted to walk away from it all.
I’m not going to tell you why I deserve to win, being a nominated as a finalist is awesome enough for me but I would be ever so grateful if you would vote for me if you felt like it.Â I’m very excited to be able to fly up to Kuala Lumpur for the weekend to attend the Awards Ceremony in December (MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR?) and I’m really grateful to the support I’ve had over the past year from Nuffnang, it’s been challenging at times getting Australia up to speed on the importance of supporting online businesses.
Okay, if you do want to vote for me (pretty please with cherries on top), you go to this link (it will open within the next couple of hours) and vote for me under “Best Entertainment Blog.”Â And if you can also enter to win yourself a ticket to the Awards Weekend in KL.
So the deadline for voting is Sunday November 27th and opens today (November 15th).Â Once again, you go to this link to vote for me and you can use this hashtag on twitter: #NAPBAS.
Thank you so much … what a way to end 2011!
