Events - Winner of Welsh Life Style Blog of the Year 2012!

You read that right lovely ladies! If you weren't following the live stream last night, or the onslaught of tweets, from the Wales Blog Awards you might not of heard my totally amazing news - I won Best Lifestyle Blog of the Year at the Wales Blog Awards! I am super excited and super happy, I really wasn't expecting it. But it has really made my year. 
I never started this blog thinking it would be a professional thing or that I would get any recognition really. So winning an amazing award like this is a huge deal. After almost 3 years, it is a really amazing feeling to know that other people really like and appreciate what I am doing. Kinda makes me feel like there really is a purpose to what I write. I've actually had a bit of a hard time this month with my writing - but winning the Lifestyle Blog of the Year has really shown me that writing is what I am meant to be doing, and really is something I am good at.

Here is what the lovely judges had to say about my blog: "One of the first things you notice about this blog is how easy it is to find your way around it. That and the bright and lively homepage drew the judges in instantly. This blog has a distinct personality – the posts are interesting to read and informative with good use of social media links and multimedia. And the more you read the more get a real sense of the person behind the blog. This ability to connect with a reader is important and Chantele does it very well."

So all that being said I would just like to say a big thank you to Media Wales and Warwick Emmanuel PR for organising and running the Wales Blog Awards, and also to all the judges who chose my blog as the winner of the Lifestyle section! Also a big Thank You to you guys! Without you actually reading my blog I would never have stuck with it and I certainly wouldn't have won this awesome achievement.
