Why am I writing about BAPs you may ask? Well, a few months ago I asked if you would nominate me for a new blogging award, purely dedicated to Special Needs bloggers.
The Bloody Awesome Parents Awards
Although a few people contacted me to say they had voted, I never expected to hear the news that I did last week, which was that I had actually been nominated in five of the six categories. That in itself was amazing news especially as I wasn’t sure how I fit into some of these categories but I guess you all must see something I don’t!!
Promoting Positive Perceptions
SEND with a Side Dish of Humour
The Truth about SEND
Campaign for Change
Today, my alerts on twitter started to go a little crazy. I have tried to get more into twitter but still not totally up on it, so wondered what was kicking off.
As it turns out, it wasn’t Trump making the news, I was tagged in the shortlisting news for the ‘Newcomer’ category in these BAPs awards.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK??
The closest I have ever come to being nominated for an award is the ‘Swear Like a Docker’ award, so this was a shocker. I have reached the final along with three other amazing bloggers and I am honoured to share such an achievement with them. I am actually a little disappointed in that I didn’t reach the final of the SEND with a Side Dish of Humour category as I have now come to accept there is slight humour in my life, other than people laughing at the man I live with.
Now comes the next part.
I need YOU!
Now, I’m not competitive (much) and I’d like to win (a bit) and obviously just happy to reach this stage BUT I would like to rehearse a Oscar-type speech, so please do it. And I promise I will only send reminders at least once a week. Share it with everyone you know!
Here it is again, in case you missed it a couple of lines up.
People, I want to buy a new dress and The Keeper would love to go to these awards and hear more about blogging, because he hasn’t quite heard enough.
