…is how to decide who to vote for.
Honest, I look at the categories and so many of them have some of my very favourite bloggers up against each other. And then, never being one for snap decisions (except unwise ones) I click off the page.
For example in the New Voices! section, would I choose Edinburgh exile and fellow Scottishrounduper Dorkymum , my new blog pash Grenglish or the awesome tour de force that is Mammasaurus?
The Change! award is just baffling. A Boy With Aspergers and Aspie in the Family vie with our old chum Dorky. But it doesn’t stop there, there is Typecast , the ever groovy Kate On Thin Ice, Anya the Older Single Mum and the inspiring Making It Up. Deciding is impossible, it’s like having only one Easter egg and lots of children.
Then to the Inspire! category. No easier here. Talented and generous Crystal Jigsaw is fighting it out with Doing it all for Aleyna and Touch and Tickle, all of whom have taken delivery of some tough stuff yet come out blogging beautifully. And all of whom were a great help when writing my book.
Lit! Hmmm. No respite from indecision here. Susan K Mann, CJ and Hello It’s Gemma are all worthy winners in my book.
Obviously I’m a million miles from a Style! contender unless they introduce a Style As Long As It’s Really Comfy! section. However, Transatlantic Blonde, Geek is the New Chic and Slummy Single Mummy are knockout, fashiony and also lovely, in fact Transatlantic Blonde almost persuaded me that false eyelashes might be a good (OK not ridiculous) idea.
I’d say the shortlisted nominations represent much of what is just brilliant about blogging – I suppose that’s where the name came from. There are one or two bloggers listed I don’t know, so I’m off to investigate.
Not that any of this takes me any closer to knowing who I’m going to click on. Maybe everyone who reads this could vote for my friends in turn so they all get some love. If you wouldn’t mind.
And then, right there in the last section, this blog has been nominated too. To say I’m chuffed purple would be an understatement. Thanks so much to whoever nominated me.
Oh, and here’s where to go to vote for the Brilliance in Blogging awards.
