It’s BiBs 2017 Nomination Time!

It’s BiBs 2017 Nomination Time!

I’ve never been one to big myself up before. I sit here and write this little blog because it’s something that I love to do. But this year I feel I might just be in a better position to do this whole plugging for nominations thing – starting with BiBs 2017!

Just this last week it was announced that nominations have opened for the BiBs Awards – also know as Brilliance In Blogging. I’m blushing at the thought that I’m even asking people to consider putting my name forward, but I figure I have absolutely nothing to lose, so here we are.

On perusing the categories, I feel I best fit Family & Lifestyle – that is what this blog is all about anyway. I certainly don’t feel I sugarcoat the parenting topics I cover. I try to be very real with all of the posts I write, especially the personal ones. If you agree, and would like to nominate me, I will love you forever!

All you have to do is click the image below – and fill out the form! It’s that simple! I’ve included the details of this blog that you will need (see, no excuses!!). Nominations are open until Wednesday 7th June.

Favourite post: Obviously this is your choice entirely, but these are my most popular parenting/family orientated posts to date –

Am I Less Of A Mum As A Mum To Just One?
The Centre Of His World
Who Should Discipline Your Child?
Coping With Tears At Nursery Drop Off
He Broke Me
Our Children And Their Emotions
Why Parenting Will Change Your Life

I hope this doesn’t come across as big headed, it’s certainly not meant to. But with so many fabulous bloggers out there, it is easy to get lost so sometimes we have to just stand up and say ‘Hey don’t forget about me!’.

Thank you for reading and good luck to everyone who is campaigning for a nomination!

    Good luck, Jaki! I totally feel this too – it feels so awkward to ask for nominations, but if you don’t stick your hand in the air and wave a bit, nobody will know you want to be considered (but it’s okay because I’ve put myself in the Fresh Voice category so we’re not competing! haha). Good luck x

    I got voted for in a category and I really have no idea what this even is- we dont have anything like it in the states.

    It feels really awkward putting it out there doesn’t it?! But I agree that it’s well worth the punt, and if we don’t big ourselves up then who else will haha?! #DreamTeam

    I did it once and then decided I was no where near in the league of the other people nominated so felt a bit stupid. Will leave it a few years before doing it again! Good luck – i will vote for you! #triumphanttales

    Good luck! I’m sure you’ll get plenty of nominations as you are a fantastic writer/blogger. And no, its not big headed at all to write this post. I’m not entirely sure what Bibs is or the other award things I’ve seen online…#TriumphantTales

    Popping over from #TriumphantTales to say Hi.
    I stopped doing nominations a few years ago as i realised it was mainly a popularity vote. i did get shortlisted for a Bibs in 2012, but failed to pimp myself out, i didn’t realise that was how it worked back then, so i remain neutral now, but i wish you well.

    You do right campaigning for your nomination! You’ve done so well this year! Good luck, can’t wait until the awards x #triumphanttales

    I’m excited for this years BiBs. I think it’s a fantastic way to recognise all the hard work that goes into our blogs. Good luck, you definitely deserve to win 🍀 #TriumphantTales
