So I only bloody well won the BIB’s dad blogger award didn’t I? I don’t think it’s quite sunk in. Quite honestly I did not expect to win, yes us dad bloggers are a rare species but the other guys nominated are truly great bloggers.
I feel a little numb still and that’s nothing to do with the 4 pints of Doom Bar that I drunk this evening, oh no sir ree bob.
So thank you to everyone that nominated me in the first place and to Craig from Dadz club who judged the finalists. It truly means everything to me to win. I never set out with a mission of being a top blogger or anything remotely close to that. I just enjoyed the experience of writing something for once rather than emails and balance sheets at work.
I love the process of blogging, of blog posts whirring around your head itching to be captured and put into words. Of trying to express exactly how I feel, of what it’s like being a dad/runner/wine drinker/middle class male. Of fighting the pigeon hole of being ‘just’ a parent blogger.
I hope at least some of this passion comes through in my writing. I enjoy it so much and getting an award like this gives you that warm fuzzy feeling and just makes you want to write more posts.
So thanks again, I love all of you, especially YOU. Please do keep reading and commenting and if you follow me on twitter come and say hi.
Oh and here’s me accepting the award with the fabulous Katy Hill in the background.
