MADS Small business Award – might have mentioned I need VOTES!

I think I might have mentioned that I’m a finalist in the national MADs Blogging Awards in the Small Business Category, maybe, just a little!

I might also have mentioned that I need votes, a LOT of them in order to have a chance against the big blogs that I’m competing with!

Well, I was asked to make a begging video, what do you reckon to it?  Lots of people have done really funny videos, but I’m just not that confident, so I’ve done a basic, ‘this is who I am, this is why I love blogging and this is why I need your vote’ kind of thing.

I’ve got only 1 more week to get as many votes as possible, and then I have to wait until September to find out how I did.

This whole process has been very good for me as it has made me embrace the idea of ‘you only get what you ask for’ and be brave enough to approach local newspapers and radio stations (which has been on my to do list for a couple of years!).  So far the Herts Advertiser has done a quick interview and Jack FM. I’m hoping for a couple more, so I’ll let you know what happens.

Video Wed: THANK YOU! I’m a finalist in the MAD Awards! Please Vote for me!

Wow, A huge thank you to firstly the person who nominated me for Best MAD Small Business Award (That’s not ‘mad’, it’s Mum and Dad Bloggers, which is sort of ‘mad’!) and then all the people who kept nominating me so that the judges picked me as a Finalist!  I had huge tears in my eyes when I checked yesterday, as it came as a massive surprise and I’m really, really chuffed to be a finalist!

It’s great that the other people are fab blogs, because now if I don’t get picked to win, I can comfort myself with the fact that I like them all – phew!

HOWEVER

I would love, love, love, love, love to win!  So please vote for me! Here’s the link

Now some of you might not know who the hell I am, so here is a little broadcast on behalf of the Mummy Whisperer, so you know what it is that you are getting …

My plan is complete world domination ;o)

  • To bring Mums together and show us our similarities, not our differences
  • To knock a few heads together
  • To help Mums enjoy being a Mum and know they are fantastic
  • To help Mums get that sparkle back in their lives
  • To give them a realistic and balanced approach to life, rather than one that they can’t possible achieve
  • To stamp on ridiculousness
  • To get a book out there on the shelves of waterstones, so that I can help all mums for just £6 and give them a great basis to work from

What am I doing about it?  Well I’m blogging a lot ;o)  There’s my weight loss tips, my exhaustion tips, there’s all the blogs I wrote about bullying and my new question corner.  I do free facebook webinars, and more organised free 1hr webinars where you register.  I’ve written ebooks, workshops and now a pile of online programs.  Only a tiny, tiny, tiny percentage of the people I meet through my blog end up being a client; but thats what I love about it, because I can reach out to hundreds of Mums including existing clients and be there whenever they need a little bit of help.  So vote for me, and you could be helping me in my plan for world domination and the thousands of Mums out there that need a boost in their lives (just thought I’d add a touch of sentimentality and guilt to persuade you!).

And to say ‘thank you’ again for voting for me, here is something to make you laugh ….
