Forget the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs and even the Oscars, it’s all about the annual Nepaliaustralian Blog Awards – or at least it is for me.
Someone has very kindly nominated me in the Best Personal Blog 2016 category. Thank you very much. It made my day yesterday when I found out. I had to click on the link twice to check it really was my site.
I’ve been lucky enough to be nominated for a couple of blogging awards before, which I am always thankful for, but I’ve never really pushed forward with them because they often seem more about how many followers you have than blogging. Do I sound bitter? I don’t mean to, honest. I’m a little fish in a big pond and I’m more than happy to swim about in my small corner.
The Nepaliaustralian Awards strike me as different, though. They are run by a blogging mum, who was born in Nepal, which is top of my list of places to visit, who lives in Australia with her husband and daughter.
As she explains:
Every year many blogs are created to express thoughts and emotions. Some are really interesting while others are funny. While some choose to share about their life or relationship others share their skills and passion like cooking, photography or fashion. No matter what field the blog belongs to, if it is good, it needs to be recognized and more and more people should be able to reach these blogs.
There’s no big ceremony (I might buy a posh dress anyway), no trophy to take home, just recognition that you are doing something others enjoy. It’s a grassroots blogging award – and that really appeals to me.
So, if you like reading my blog please could you click here and cast your vote for me by pasting this into the comment box.

While you’re there why not check out some of the other nominated blogs. The lovely, always supportive, Amanda who blogs at Something To Ponder About (home of the Monday Mystery Photo) is nominated in TWO categories, including best personal blog, and Jane at Sustayable Me, who kindly featured me in her Mum Friday Section, is up for Best New Blog.
Thanks again for every view, like and especially comment.
