Blog awards, I’m sorry to say, don’t light my fire. While the email telling me I’d been nominated for a UK Blog Award came with a frisson of something, it lasted no more than a fraction of a second before I realised how little these things mean.
I’m all about my readers and the wedding suppliers I discover and share. I’m not out there to compete with other wedding bloggers – the English Wedding Blog has its own niche and all I want is to make this a lovely place for you to visit, enjoy, find suppliers and ideas and advice. What would I do with an award?
Besides, I’ve never been one for schmoozing around in a cocktail dress telling people how brilliant I am. Any networking I do is informal: I love floating around at styled shoots, meeting for coffee and cakes (and peppermint tea) and supping a wine at the end of the day with my creative friends.
