Lets rewind to last week. My phone seemed to blowing up with twitter notifications and when I checked I saw that I was longlisted from TWO UKYABA! Now, I new the nominations where getting announced but never did I think I would actually be on the longlists!
Then they announced the shortlist would be announced a few days later. For me, I was all over the place. I kept telling myself the fact I was on the longlists was just amazing and I really didn't think I would actually get on the shortlist.
When it came to 6pm I was dropping my friend of and had no data, how rude of my phone right? So, I tried to hold out for a few minutes and kept telling myself I would check on my way home and that only lasted a second until my boyfriend gave me his phone to check. I quickly clicked on the link and I remember my heart beating quite fast and the first thing I saw was my name under Champion Adult Blogger.
I had been shortlisted and I was freaking out...I couldn't believe it and also, that I'm an adult. I am 23 but still ;)
After blogging for almost 4 years it felt amazing. So, thank you to everyone who voted for me, I love you and you're the best.
Don't forget to also vote for the winners! For my catagory you can only vote for it if you're an author or a publisher. So, here is the email ukyaba (at) gmail (dot) come with the subject: UKYABA Shortlist Voting – Author Voting Form
A vote would be amazing if you happen to love my blog and I would just probably make weird noises with happiness! I am up against some amazing bloggers and my friends and I just know some of the choices are going to be hard to make!
Good luck to everyone nominated and well done!
