The 2014 BiBs Finalists are …

BiBbigLogo2014aThe votes have been counted. The verdict is in. These blogs are awesome.

Since 29 April, the blogging community has been voting for its favourite blogs from the BiBs shortlists and only 6 out of the 16 go through to be finalists.

The top 4 blogs with the highest votes are put through and BritMums chooses two as well. The quality of blogs is better than ever, which makes the success of shortlisted bloggers as well as finalists all the more admirable.

Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, a round of applause for the 2014 BiBs Finalists (in alphabetical order)!
