Just a quick note to tell you my good news – Ten Penny Dreams has been shortlisted as Best Arts and Culture Blog in the Blog North Awards 2013!
I’m absolutely thrilled and I’ve received so many nice, supportive comments online. I work hard running this website in my spare time and I must admit that I’ve been a bit down lately, feeling like the content’s not good enough or I don’t get as much traffic as I would like. But this nomination has given me such a boost; it’s amazing what a little bit of recognition can do for your self-esteem and motivation.
The final winner will be announced next month, but in the meantime you can vote for Ten Penny Dreams on the Blog North Awards website.
I’m looking forward to checking out the other shortlisted blogs, as I’ve heard the standard was really high this year; you can find the full list here.
So congratulations to everyone who was shortlisted and once again, a huge thanks to anyone who stops by to read, I couldn’t do it without you!
