I got some very exciting and unexpected news today: This blog has made it to the short list for the Health category of the BiB Awards 2014!
Thank you so much to everyone who nominated me, I really didn't expect to make the list! Even if I don't get any further I'm delighted to have had this opportunity to get my blog noticed in the parent blogging world and to hopefully raise a bit more awareness about the dreadful barrage of pseudoscience and nonsense that is hurled at us parents: Why is a so called health magazine peddling cruel and inaccurate scare stories at vulnerable pregnant women? Why are we still having the vaccine debate? Why are we not just given accurate information and allowed to make informed decisions? Why are we often the only group it's still ok to single out as stupid? Oh yeah and why on earth are people trying to sell us magnets to shove in our knickers? (If you're looking through the short list and wondering what this blog is about, those links should give you an idea).
I Need Your Help!
But, I still need your help. The next stage is to whittle the short list down the the finalists. This is done mostly on a public vote, so please please vote for me again by clicking here or on the BiB badge above and filling in the form (please only do it once though, multiple votes don't count). There are some amazing blogs in my category and some of them are much bigger names in the blogging world than me so I need all the help I can get. If you like the sort of things I say please also share a link on social media.
Right, begging letter over, I'm off for a celebratory glass of wine to be followed swiftly by an early night, such is the rock and roll lifestyle of a prize nominated blogger!
PS. Thank you again to everyone who took the time to nominate me, it really means a lot.
