Why, Thank you

Potty said it in her post really; but I'll say it in my own way. I'm very flattered (and very surprised) to have been nominated in two categories of the Brilliance in Blogging awards - Lit and Laughs. (How funny that I'm not in the Style category. Someone has obviously been spying on me.)

 I have no idea who nominated me, as I certainly wouldn't have put myself forward with all that competition - but thank you very much. Apparently I received quite a few votes too, so thank you to anyone who voted for me.

 I thought about withdrawing this blog from the competition as I'm really not a "competition person" and despite having a book to sell, I'm woefully crap at selling myself. And then I thought how churlish that would be. Someone has taken the time to put my blog forward and there I would be, - being all ungrateful. So I'll leave my name in the hat, and if anyone feels the urge, you can vote on the side buttons to the right here.

But take a look and click through to the other blogs on the lists as there really are some great bloggers included.

  1. I will vote for you- and you deserve to be nominated. Like you I'm totally crap at this selling myself thing - this marketing- branding thing that everyone thinks you should do here in the US

  2. Thanks for the name check EPM, and as ALW said, you totally deserve to be on the list! x (But that's not what either of us are denying, is it?)

  5. With you. But seriously, some REALLY FUNNY bloggers have been nominated. That Knackered Mother's Wine Club is HILARIOUS x

  6. And I voted for you! I have been nominated, too. In the style category, of course, because I am neither very funny, nor particularly literate. Bummer.

  7. Congratulations - I might have added you too - at least you are in categories you can cope with - wish I was in the humour one - would have focused the mind. Instead I have to pretend to go on holiday a lot in the next month as a shortlist in the travel section when really I am staying at home with grumpy revising teenage daughter. Lx

  8. Yes but MM - there's no denying you should be in the Style category, and Knackered should be in the fun one.
