I’ve Entered the UK Blog Awards Again – Please Vote For Me? #SaturdayShareLinkUp

Catherine Summers, Not Dressed As Lamb | UK Blog Awards 2017 Individual Fashion & Beauty Winner

Yes, it’s that time of year once again when the UK Blog Awards nomination process rolls around and I ask my lovely readers for their support.

It only feels like 5 minutes since I last asked for votes (though I’m aware it was a whole year ago…), and it’s even less time that I somehow managed to win on my third time being shortlisted. It STILL hasn’t sunk in even now that I won, eight months later!

So after having a huge surprise also winning Most Addictive Blog at the Thirty Plus Awards only last week, I feel like I’m on a bit of a roll this year (somehow, I don’t know how)! This is happening to someone who never, ever won anything or came top in anything at school or competitions. I was just never one of those people who would win things, but I’d always have a good go trying.

But what I was most proud of in April at the UK Blog Awards, along with fellow Over40Collective member Nikki of Midlifechic, was representing the older woman/blogger in a category for an industry – fashion and beauty – dominated by the idolisation of youth.

I HOPE I WILL BE ONCE AGAIN INSPIRING OVER 40 WOMEN TO GO OUT AND CHASE A DREAM – WHATEVER THAT DREAM MAY BE.

Why you should vote for me (us)!

Therefore I’d LOVE to once again represent the older women at the UK’s biggest blogging awards event. I ummed and ahhed over whether I should enter again seeing as I won in April, but by trying and hopefully being shortlisted for 2018 (which will only happen as a result of your votes) I hope I will be once again inspiring over 40 women to go out and chase a dream – whatever that dream may be.

Here is the link to vote for me – it’s one vote per email address so if you have two or more email addresses I’d love it if you could spare an extra 20 seconds to vote for me more than once!

 

VOTE FOR ME (WITH EACH EMAIL ADDRESS YOU HAVE) HERE:

https://www.blogawardsuk.co.uk/ukba2018/entries/not-dressed-lamb

 

(I can’t see when voting closes, I’ll update this when I do.) Each email address can be used to vote for TWO people, so as some of my lovely fellow 30/40+ bloggers have also entered, pleeeeeeeease consider giving your other vote to one of them…

Vote for Samatha, Fake Fabulous
Vote for Michellle, The Barefaced Chic

Vote for Amber, Forever Amber

Vote for Nikki, Midlifechic

I’m hoping (hoping!) to get shortlisted, but as the awards become more and more popular and more and more bloggers enter it’s of course going to become even more difficult just to get shortlisted – there are only 8 finalists in each category, so I have to be in the top 8 of most votes gained.

I’ve had so much incredible success in the last two years with three different blog award wins, I’m not crazy desperate to win the category again (and I’d expect to win even LESS than I did this year!!) – but to win two years in a row would be quite something and not a feat to be sniffed at. However, just to be there to represent us older gals would be enough to make me feel incredibly proud.

All that’s left to say is… THANK YOU!! {here’s another subliminal message to vote for me…}
