Hello, my bookish friends. I have some news *scrapes herself off the ceiling*. My little piece of the internet has been nominated for an award at the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards…..EEEEEEEEEPP!!
Those of you who were with me last year may remember that I was in the Services to Bloggers category. And I only flipping WON it!! Honest. It was me. I won an actual, real-life award.
The competition was tough last year but oh my gosh, it’s stepped up a few notches this year. Not helped by being in the same category as some of my very favourite book bloggers (not only are they very good at what they do, they are some of the loveliest people I know). This year damppebbles.com is in the BEST BOOK REVIEW BLOG category 🎉🥂!!
So if you haven’t voted yet then please consider ticking the box next to ‘damppebbles.com’ for Best Book Review Blog (over 6,300 votes have been cast so far and it’s been less than a week since voting opened!). Here’s the link to vote: https://sachablack.co.uk/2018/04/06/voting-is-now-open-for-the-annual-bloggers-bash-awards-bloggersbash/
It’s so humbling to be nominated for something like the Bloggers Bash. I think back to the day I pressed ‘publish’ on my brand spanking new blog and thought to myself, ‘well, it’s something to keep me entertained for a little while’. That was two and a bit years ago and how my life has changed since. I didn’t expect anyone to follow me, I didn’t expect authors and publishers to want me to read their books, I didn’t expect that I would be able to chat to some incredible authors on a daily basis (and I still get starstruck!), I didn’t expect the lifelong friendships, the opportunities to read books that wouldn’t normally have crossed my radar, the sense of community and belonging.
Book blogging has changed my life and I LOVE it. Thank you all for your follows, your retweets, your shares, your comments but most of all, thank you for your support. YOU make blogging fun.
Wish me luck, guys. It’s an incredibly tough category and I think I need all the support I can get, up against some of the most dedicated and influential book bloggers out there.
Voting closes at midnight on 30th April 2018 (BST) and the awards will be presented at a ceremony in London on Saturday 19th May 2018. To find out more, click THIS LINK.
Thank you ❤
