For those of you that know me, you’ll know I find this type of blog post really awkward.  But I’m going to embrace the fear and write it anyway.


I’ve always hated asking for help.  As in, I have a real aversion to it .. to the point where I’d rather struggle (and struggle) on my own just to avoid the idea that anyone might think I can’t cope on my own.  God forbid.  But I’m an idiot sometimes, and I’m trying to get better at that whole ‘help’ thing.


So here goes.  I need your help.


I’m really delighted to say I’ve been shortlisted in the ‘LAUGH’ category for the Brilliance in Blogging awards (BIBs) and I would love to make it to the final.  I know a lot of my readers aren’t a part of the blogosphere but making the final would be a big deal, at least for me.  I’ve been blogging for four years and I like to think that it comes across in my posts how much I love writing, and making you all laugh … even if it is a by-product of chronicling my hideous dates.  Such as THE WORST DATE EVER … oh and THE TIME THE REMOVAL VAN FOUND MY SECRET STASH OF NAUGHTY TOYS.  And not forgetting WHEN DATING GOES BAD.


Annoyingly, the competition is really tough and I love a lot of the other blogs in this category, and I know at least a couple of us feel really weird about asking for votes – it goes against our nature.  BUT SOD IT, VOTE FOR ME!  (Sorry for shouting.)


So that’s all I’m going to say about that really.  If you have a spare five minutes, and you like my blog and think it’s worthy of making the final, I’d love it if you could cast a vote.  It’s easy to do, just fill in a few details on the link below … my category is No.13.



(I’m cringeing so much writing this you wouldn’t believe, but as my late Mum always said, you don’t ask, you don’t get.  So I’m asking!)


Thanks again and FINGERS CROSSED!
