The Finalist list for the 2012 Irish Blog Awards is out! Unfortunately, La Vie en Rose (I was shortlisted in the Lifestyle category) didn't make it through :( Yes, I am disappointed but living 'La Vie en Rose' means finding the positive in every situation. The silver lining in this little cloud? I am SO happy that I was nominated in the first place! Some lovely person took the time to nominate my blog in 3 categories (no mean achievement). Then I was shortlisted - I was sooooo excited when I heard the news. Now that my blog hasn't got through at this stage it just makes me want to try harder so maybe I'll make it through next year!! So, upwards and onwards!
So congratulations to all the finalists in the Lifestyle category:
- Mum of All Trades
- Style Serendipity
- Positivity Pimp
- Mind the Baby
- Greenside Up
- A Year in Redwood
- Deborah Watkins Paintings
- Martine Brennan – My Small Granny and Other Stories
A special BIG congratulations to Dee (a good blog friend of mine) of the Greenside Up blog. I am THRILLED that Dee's blog made it through (in 2 categories!). Dee works SO hard at her blog that this recognition is just so well deserved. It's almost as good as getting through myself - (almost!!) :) I don't know any of the other blogs but I am going to visit them all! There are lots of other categories and lots of other blogs I want to check out - I never realised how many other bloggers there were in Ireland! So hopefully lots of new friends to make aswell.
So now how do I make my blog better? There is always room for improvement and I have some ideas but I thought I would ask the people who know my blog best - my lovely readers!! Thank you, thank you , thank you! Without you, there would be no blog, no comments and no nominations!!! So would you please give me your ideas and suggestions. eg What type of posts do you like?? About what subjects?? I really would appreciate your feedback and constructive criticism on this. And this will just make La Vie en Rose a better blog all round. See - it's ALL GOOD!!!! :)
Lots of love,
