This year, the quality of blogs nominated and voted for has once again been outstanding but each year we discover more innovations, more assured voices and beautiful design. See all the celebrated Finalists in each category here: Announcing the BiBs Finalists 2018 #BiBs2018.
In deciding the Winners, thousands of votes were cast across 11 categories for a host of excellent Influencers. In addition, the BritMums judging panel selected one person as a BritMums Choice Winner because of their work not only as an Influencer but as a positive force in the blogging and social media community.
