It’s been nearly a month since the awards ceremony for the UK Blog Awards 2017, and I am yet to write about it. It’s not through laziness or anything like that. But more that I am still in utter disbelief that I won. For weeks I kept expecting someone to email and say sorry, they made a mistake. I know that sounds utterly ridiculous. But for me, with my struggles with mental health, related to self-doubt, it felt like something that could happen.
When, almost all of your life, you’ve been told you’re not good enough or that you will fail, you start to believe it. And with the struggle of trying to get content out whilst battling severe health issues that have seen me admitted to hospital time and time again, I never for a second thought that I could ever win anything.
Even now, almost a month on, I am still a tad lost for words. I feel weird talking about it because I don’t want anyone thinking that I am bragging. Which I know is silly of me. I should be shouting it from the rooftops and I shouldn’t be ashamed of being proud!
Winning At the UK Blog Awards – Green & Eco
To everyone who nominated me and then voted for me in the public votes, THANK YOU. I truly mean it when I say that I have the best readers and followers ever. Also, a huge thank you to the sponsors and judges of my category for picking me as your winner. There are many other people who deserve thanks, but I have already thanked them personally, and they all know who they are.
Winning the Green & Eco category at the UK Blog Awards has opened many doors for me, and for that, I am incredibly grateful. New chapters have opened in my life, and I am excited to share them with you very soon.
Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart. I am SO incredibly grateful for your love and support.
