Strange & Beautiful Reaches Final in MAD Most Inspiring Blog Award 2010!
My offers of free virtual champagne seem to have paid off. It looks like I'll soon be putting in an order for several jeroboams of champagne. You lovely people have been voting for this blog and miraculously we are in the top five out of one-hundred and seventy eight nominees! So, it's official, Strange & Beautiful is in the final of The MADS.
Voting is now open for the second stage of the MADs at www.the-mads.com, and over the next month bloggers and blog readers will be able to vote for their favourite blogs.
The MADs are all about celebrating parent bloggers and raising awareness of the range of blogs being created in Britain today. The awards are very generously being sponsored by Butlins and my category by Plum Baby.
I'd encourage you to check out blogs in all the categories as there are some real gems to discover.
Here's what the MADs site says about this blog:
Strange and Beautiful is the deeply inspiring story of Rachel who is Mum to twins, one of whom was diagnosed with autism in 2008 at the age of five. Things which normal families take for granted are often very difficult for the family, but the blog reminds us that five-year-old Lyla is still a charming, engaging little girl who brings the family lots of smiles.
So, if you like this blog, please vote now by clicking on the MADS link on the right hand side of this page - there'll be virtual champagne all round!
PS Hello to new followers! I'm in the process of coming round to say Hi to you on your blogs, lovely to meet you :)
