Thanks sincerely to anyone who nominated or voted for me. I hoped, but never expected, to make it to the final shortlist and am absolutely delighted. Thank you to Damien Mulley and Team Blog Awards who put a terrific amount of effort into this event. And thank you to pix.ie who sponsor the category.
