We’ve Been Shortlisted For a Blog Award!

We’ve Been Shortlisted For a Blog Award!

More than a month ago, we nominated ourselves for a Northern Blog award. We chose the lifestyle category but did it for fun more than anything else. To be super honest with you, we really had little hope we would be shortlisted. Although we both would have loved to attend the ceremony no matter what, we used a nomination and potential shortlisting as an excuse to actually go. And here we are.

We created the blog in December 2015 but published our fist post on the 12 of February 2016. It took us some time to actually seriously get into blogging. Those who have read our one year anniversary and 2017 goals know our story. How we met, how we decided to start a blog together, how we learnt from the blog. Although we live in two different countries, it’s been a great journey. We worked hard and kinda can say we’ve gone far too.

The other day, we were updating our media kit and realize something absolutely crazy. Back in February 2017, we had only 123 followers on Pinterest. Today, we have 2950 followers, growing by the minute. We put a much bigger emphasize on Pinterest these last few weeks and have been super active but still. How fast are things going?! How crazy are things getting? Crazy good but a bit overwhelming.

So when we saw we had been shortlisted for a Northern Blog Award, we could not believe it. Kirsty was joy dancing in her house in France. Corinne was joy dancing in Manchester. We told our friends and families. OMG, so much surprise and joy. But let’s get back to business, please!

We have been nominated in the Twitterati category alongsideΒ Megan Ellaby and Beauty By The Bunny. How amazing and overwhelming is it to be nominated alongside such amazing and successful ladies?! Kinda cool, right? This category is for bloggers who are quite active on Twitter and have a really good engagement there. We guess our #BloggersNightIn has something to do with it. This comment thread has been so successful thanks to you guys. Because you participate, drop your links, engage with us, play the game. So a big thank you!

We know our readers and followers made us so successful. That’s why we wanted to thank you for that because we would not have been that far without you. We also want to ask one last favor. Yes, you guessed. We’d like to ask for you to give us your vote. You can vote for us in the Twitterati category HERE!

A big thank you for your support and for your vote!

See you soon,
Corinne & Kirsty

  20. July 17, 2017 / 7:09 pm

    Mega congratulations on this honor! So interesting to hear that putting an emphasis on Pinterest made a difference in growing your following. I pin from my blog inconsistently and I know that’s a mistake. Also, I know I should take the time to create specific photos for Pinterest that I hide in my blogposts, but I’m too lazy – do you do that?

  21. July 17, 2017 / 8:19 pm

    Wow congratulations! Keep up the good work . Your hard work and efforts have paid off .
