The nominations are in, the votes have been counted and the finalists announced.
And, to my absolute delight, the ‘Best Dad’ blog is through to the finals in two categories – Best New Blog and Best Writer.
Before I drop a gentle hint about voting for the blog, I just want to say thank you for all the nominations, messages and feedback. ‘Best Dad’ has only been live for a little over six months and the response in that time has been fantastic. Actually, several degrees beyond fantastic…
So to everyone that engages with the blog and comments on a regular basis, thank you.
But enough aimless chit-chat. Here’s the link to this year’s voting: if you’d vote for ‘Best Dad’ I’d be enormously grateful.
However, I’d be even more grateful if you’d read all the blogs before you vote. Yes, I want people to vote for me – but I want them to vote because they genuinely think that ‘Best Dad I Can Be’ has the best writing, or is the best new blog.
‘Best Dad’ will always stand or fall on the quality of the writing. I don’t want to win because I have the most friends on Facebook, the cutest kid holding a ‘Vote for my Mum/Dad’ placard, or because I’ve spelt out ‘vote for me’ in toast.
So there you go. I’d like to win, but I’d like to win for the right reasons.
