It's been a crazy weekend and start to the week, my son Corben turned 3! I know my baby is growing up fast, I had a perfect weekend which was spent with family to celebrate. This week I'm excited for another reason, that reason is you and your support you voted for me in the D.I.Y section of the Cosmo blog awards! For those of you who don't know, I'm not really into this kind of thing, I don't like being judged and judging others in any shape or form. I don't do glam, and I always feel like a totally nerd when I meet other bloggers so I'm nervous for this Thursday.
At the same time I don't want to be ungrateful, you have put me forward and that really means a lot. I don't except to win, for me it won't be about that. To me it will be great to final meet people I have chatted with on twitter, and meet bloggers/vloggers I admire. It is total cheese on a stick, but I already feel like a winner. You must like something I've written and that's what counts, as a full time mum of two it gives me a little lift. I love my little ones, but it's nice to have something for me. Anyway I know I have tweeted about the awards heaps, and I'm not trying to show off or rub it in. I just want YOU to know how grateful I am. Seriously THANK YOU, and even if you didn't vote for me but you have ever read a post from start to finish or left a comment that goes for you too.
Bloggers need YOU, we can say we write for ourselves - Which is part true, but without you taking time out to read than it's just us. Trust me when you spend an hour editing and writing up a singe post, there is no greater feeling than to know someone has read it and even better when you get feedback.
I won't rant but for a dyslexic girl, who was bullied for a long time this means a lot. To the people who made my teenage years hell, 'thanks' you made me work even harder and in trying to prove you wrong, I realised I had nothing to prove to you at all.
