MAD Blog Awards

I guess by now most of you (over here in the UK) have been hearing about this year's MAD Blog Awards. Being a pretty new blogger and definitely new to Twitter (on which I found out about these awards) I was intrigued. I had a bit of a look to see what the awards were all about and off the top of my head could think of a few UK mummy bloggers that I could certainly nominate.

Although I am American my family is all British and I live in the UK, so I think that pretty much makes me an honorary Brit! I guess up until recently most of the blogs that I have been following have been US based and I have to admit that I did have a hard time finding a UK mummy blogging community, but since joining twitter I have definitely found so many great blogs a little bit more local to me (although I will be forever faithful to my US bloggies too).
Here is a little blurb taken from the MAD Blog Awards page to fill you in in case you don't know what they are all about:

Now in its fifth year, the MAD Blog Awards are the UK’s biggest and brightest awards for Mum and Dad bloggers.
From babies to business, UK parent bloggers write about it all – and the MAD Blog Awards is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the very best of those blogs.
Each Spring, we invite blog readers to share their favourite blogs with us in our open nominations. This year we have stacks of award categories designed to reflect the diversity and brilliance of British parent blogs, from Best Food and Best Pregnancy to Best Writer and Best Photography.
Thousands of blogs are nominated, but just five bloggers from each category will make the finals, and will attend a gala awards ceremony in London in September 2014, where the winners of the 2014 MAD Blog Awards will be revealed.

Here are some of the blogs that I am going to nominate for this year's MAD Blog Awards:

Pregnancy Blog-
Family Travel Blog-
Craft Blog-
Food Blog-
Outstanding Contributions-
School Days Blog-
Photography Blog-

The deadline to nominate is 14th March 2014. And if I can be ever so cheeky and ask; Will you please nominate me? I would absolutely love to be up for best new blog but if you find me entertaining or best written then I'd be over the moon to be up for one of those accolades as well ;-)

Take care and don't forget to nominate!
