  9. Sonia Marsh/Gutsy Living 30 April 2014 at 13:47 #

    As a Brit/global citizen, living in southern California now, I have so enjoyed Muriel Jacques: FrenchYummyMummy, which I’m pleased to see is in the outstanding category, and deserves to be. I had the pleasure of meeting Muriel in London, and interviewing her on YouTube, so I am voting for her OUTSTANDING BLOG.

  10. Mel 30 April 2014 at 13:52 #

    Wouhou, I have been shortlisted in the food category! I seriously could not believe the Tweets I had seen from blogger friends and double-checked the link you put up there was really leading to MY blog, haha! Thank you, thank you, thank you! x Mel

        Yes, I agree, Hayley you are awesome!

  16. Izzie Anderton 30 April 2014 at 15:36 #

  18. HerMelness Speaks 30 April 2014 at 17:15 #

    Sincere thanks to those who supported HerMelness into the #BiBs2014 shortlist. Surprising as the blog is pretty niche-less. Really appreciated.

  19. Sophie Bowns 30 April 2014 at 17:21 #

  21. Lori 30 April 2014 at 17:53 #

    Wow so thrilled to be shortlisted for the #BiBs2014awards under Outstanding Category. Thanks so much for all those people who voted and nominated me :) x

  22. Tania Tirraoro 30 April 2014 at 17:57 #

    Wow, this is a surprise as we hadn’t entered – I won in 2012 and I thought I would just count my blessings and leave it at that.

    So it’s really amazing that we’ve been shortlisted this year and thanks to all who voted for us – because it is ‘us’ now, as I couldn’t do this by myself now I have a long term illness.

    As well as Debs, we have Hayley (3rd shortlist), Renata (2nd shortlist), Helen & Elizabeth Speech Blog, Angela and our non-mums, Rob & Charlie who all bring a huge amount to the site. What great value for money this shortlisting is!

    • Hayley Goleniowska 30 April 2014 at 20:55 #

      Tania, Debs and the rest of the team, I am so very proud that you are listed in this imposrtant category, your site continues to go from strength to strength. Much love and gratitude H x

      • Actually Mummy... 02 May 2014 at 13:50 #

        Same here – it’s such a great resource and I’m glad to see you shortlisted. Well done!

        • Tania 02 May 2014 at 14:03 #

          Thanks! As I said, I am touched that people thought of SNJ. I must admit it is a passion for me – wakes me up with ideas in the middle of the night – but the best thing about it is allowing me to meet so many wonderful other women and hear their stories. So many are totally humbling and remind me why it’s important to keep going and work together with other bloggers to amplify our message.

  23. Trish - Mum's gone to.. 30 April 2014 at 19:17 #

    What lovely news to receive today. Thanks to whoever got me this far. Good luck to all those short listed :-)

  24. kirstie 30 April 2014 at 20:19 #

    Thanks Britmums! More than delighted.

  25. Lewis @ Dadwhoblogs 30 April 2014 at 20:32 #

  26. Sarah @ Perfume & Trumps 30 April 2014 at 20:38 #

    Yay, I’m on the short list for Fresh Voice! Off to go kiss some babies and bribe some officials (joke) to secure my place on the even shorter list! In all seriousness, well done to all the nominees – good luck!

  27. Glasgow Mummy 30 April 2014 at 21:07 #

    Totally shocked but absolutely thrilled to be in the shortlist. Thank you :-)

  28. Trish - Mum's Gone to 30 April 2014 at 21:20 #

  33. Ellie at Mush Brained Ramblings 01 May 2014 at 00:35 #

    When I think of awesome blogs I think of DownsSideUp, of Mammasaurus Blog, of Edspire and countless others … to be shortlisted alongside several of my blogging hero(ines) is humbling in the extreme. For my ramblings to be considered Inspiring makes me want to shout, laugh, weep and beam all at the same time … thank you so much (and to the Katie Piper Foundation the category sponsors) for making this geriatric old bag an even happier
    mother. Hats off to all at BritMums for organising what must be an immensely labour intensive awards and woooooooooooooo hooooooooooooo and huge congratulations to the many really seriously talented writers shortlisted.

    Phew, off to see if there’s any sherry left in the back of the cupboard.

  34. Tasha Batsford 01 May 2014 at 01:02 #

    I keep swinging from mad smiling to fighting back happy tears.

    I’m so overjoyed to be on the shortlist I can’t even …

    I may need to go and have a lay down in a darkened room.

  35. MrsB | Mind over Matter 01 May 2014 at 09:22 #

    So stoked to have been nominated :) And I’m going to read all the blogs in the lists so I can vote in every category. Excited to find new great blogs to read!

  36. Fiona Flores Watson 01 May 2014 at 10:07 #

    Wow – I’m so honoured to be included in the COMMENTARY & CAMPAIGNS category, particularly with all the amazing and socially aware bloggers also on the list! Thanks so much to all who nominated my work on the ‘Love for Izzy Dix’ anti-bullying campaign, after my dear family friend, 14 year old Izzy Dix, took her own life back in September after she was bullied at school, in the community and online.

    If you’d like to know more about the campaign, our 142,000 name petition, our trip to Westminster, our celebrity support and generally what we’ve been trying to change and achieve, please have a look here:

That said, in this last year, I’ve found some great new spaces, returned to old favourites, lurked here and there. My interest is still the windows on the worlds of other bloggers, their passions, their thoughts. It’s an inspiring space and inspired me to continue doing what I enjoy. Because my space got smaller, it was (and I know everyone says this, but really it was) a surprise to be shortlisted to the last 16 of the Brilliance in Blogging awards. […]
