Despite continuously refreshing the page yesterday when it somehow appeared to say ‘Kirst Over The World’, it wouldn’t go away: there I am, in amongst the other 6 shortlisted travel bloggers (and what lovely company to be in!) for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2014.
To say I’m absolutely thrilled is an understatement. A really big fat understatement.
To even be recognised by such a widespread, massive and awesome institution like Cosmopolitan is more than I could have hoped for, and thank you to anyone who nominated me for it! It paid off :)
The next step now is a public vote – this will remain open until 29th August. I know it’s a while, but I’d love to get as far as possible, and – I’m sorry – that means hassling you lovely people!
How do you vote?
Well, first thing’s first: if you enjoy my blog, even just the teensiest bit, I’d love for you to vote for me.
Click ‘Next Page’ until you get to page 7 for the Best Travel Blog category (I encourage you to look at the other categories too as there are some amazing blogs there, but time might be precious)
(You’ll need to enter your name and email address.)
I know there’s a lot of clicking ‘Next Page’, but it takes about 30 seconds to 1 minute overall, and even though it goes without saying, I will really appreciate it!
After 29th August, a panel of judges looks through the shortlist and the winner is announced at the award ceremony in September/October. So even without winning, we all get a great night meeting each other and having fun :)
I hate saying this stuff as it sounds so cringey, as if I think I’ve been nominated for an Oscar (but I guess in my own little way it kind of is like that), but it’s amazing to have even been shortlisted – I wanted to hug everyone and jump up and down – so thank you, Cosmopolitan.
Over to you guys. Help a girl out and vote, share, shout it from the rooftops! :)
