I am possibly the worst when it comes to self promotion, so stick with me here while I try to do just that in this post. You see, I’ve been nominated in the UK Blog Awards 2017 and I’m feeling a mixture of pretty chuffed, overwhelmed and darn excited. And now I need your help, it’s all about getting those votes in.
I’ve been blogging forever after starting way back in January 2009, with what I would describe as a god-awful post titled A Lil Bit About Moi. Mega cringe. Since then my blog has grown with me as I find my way through a sea of sequins and midi skirts in my wardrobes, the insane thoughts behind my beach wedding planning, my regular weekly feature Want it on Wednesday and most recently, my mission to break the poo taboo and raise awareness of gut health and IBS.
I started sharing all the gory details behind my IBS story in August 2014 and have been amazed and overwhelmed with the comments, shares, love and encouragement from you guys. I’ve since spoken about how I deal with anxiety, the embarrassing things about IBS I’m not afraid to share and even started my own YouTube channel to talk about Irritable Bowel Syndrome further. Being so honest and sharing the real shitty parts is all made worth it every time I get a comment or receive a message thanking me for being such an oversharer, and for making that person not feel so alone with their illness. For me, that feeling will never get old.
Now, here’s the part where I ask for your help. I would love it if you could vote for me in the UK Blog Awards 2017. All you have to do is click here, yep right here, and submit your vote. You have until 10am, Monday 19th December.
You guys truly rock. Thank you.
Self promotion over and out.
