It’s that time of year again where the blogging world goes Award crazy. We’ve just seen the final nominations take place for the MADS and now it’s the turn of The Brilliance in Blogging Awards (otherwise known as the BiBs).
The BiBs are run by BritMums and highlight the best of parent blogging. It’s an opportunity to recognise the most creative, inventive and compelling blogging of the year!
There are 16 categories you can nominate in in the Brilliance in Blogging Awards, ranging from the Fresh Voice Award which celebrates newbies in the blogging world (hint hint ahem!) to Outstanding Blogger Award, which celebrates blogs that capture your attention and won’t let go.
Nominations for the Brilliance in Blogging Awards are open till 12th April and then 16 people will be chosen in each category to be included in the shortlist. This will be made up of the 11 with the most nominations, and 5 chosen by BritMums. The shortlist will then be announced on 22 April and the blogging community can then vote for their favorites on the shortlist until 12th May. 6 finalists will be chosen in each category (4 with the most votes and 2 chosen by BritMums) and these will be announced on 22nd May. Winners are then announced on the evening of 21 June 2013 at BritMums Live!
I’ve been blogging for just over a year now and have come across some truly inspiring, friendly and helpful bloggers. I always find it hard with such awards as I often would like to give an award to many and to only pick one in each category is so hard. However, I have sat and thought long and hard and have made my nominations.
This time last year as all the awards were happening I was a newbie so I just joined in the voting side of things but this year I’m established and would be lying if I said I wouldn’t love to be included myself. So, having made my votes I will now make a shameless plea myself, if you are still looking to vote I would love it if you would consider me for any of the below categories. Thank you and good luck to everyone!
