I’m a loser!

Posted by

Well, not exactly as I didn’t technically lose anything.

This past friday, 500 of the countries best parent bloggers got together darrrn sarrrf to meet, greet, network and of course learn from each other and the many speakers that graced the stage of Britmums LIVE!

One of the biggest parts of the Britmums LIVE! are the Brilliance in Blogging awards which were held on Friday night.

As most of you know I was lucky enough to be a finalist at these prestigious awards.
I missed the initial announcement as I was bathing the little man, but when I finally got round to checking twitter, I learnt that the award was won, by someone much more deserving than me.

So congratulations to Ben over at Mutterings of a fool, who won the DAD BLOGGER category at the awards.

Ben is a great blogger who’s blog is a commentary on life as he sees it, the ups and downs of raising a family and the challenge of using public transport every day to commute to work. Most likely there will be some mention of food, fitness and politics plus definitely a few adventures of their crazy English Springer spaniel Bracken.

Although I didn’t win, I can’t say I was disappointed. I genuinely didn’t expect to win. Not because my blog isn’t good enough, but because the other finalists were better. I was happy to simply be grouped with some awesome dads and be in with a chance. Hopefully it has helped my little corner of the net gain a few more followers.

One other cool thing is that as I read the winners of the other awards of the night, I realised how many of these amazing bloggers I already follow and who follow me, so I really am in good company. Click HERE to see all the winners from the awards.

Once gain, thanks to everybody that voted from the first vote to the last, thankyou and congrats again to you all and maybe I can meet you all at Britmums LIVE! 2013.

Thanks for reading


  1. It was a great night, hope you can make it next year. Agree on the other winners, I need to go and make sure I’m reading them and the other finalists, great way to expand your network.
