BritMums Brilliance in Blogging Awards

I’m delighted that aroundtheworldwithahighchair has made it to the final 10 in the family travel category of the BiBs, run by BritMums.  Don’t worry, this isn’t a post asking for votes, or explaining why you should vote for me, it’s more a short post to say thanks to those who nominated me in the first place, it is nice to know that people read my blog, and not all of them are friends 🙂



I love working on my blog – planning posts, writing them, all the promotion you have to do around it so people actually read it – and now that Mini ATWWAH is a bit less demanding in the evenings it is definitely getting easier to have some motivation to write something rather than crawl to bed.

I try not to over-share, mine isn’t a parenting blog which is warts and all on the nitty gritty of parenting but it is, I hope, an honest take on travelling with families.  I don’t pretend every journey or holiday is perfect and I like to share the good stuff, as well as the bad.  The intention being that people can relate to what I write and hopefully pick up a tip or two on what not to do when they take their little ones on holiday.  There really is no need to take a highchair 🙂

I’d also like to acknowledge the other nine blogs which have made it into the family travel category shortlist, all of which I do honestly read, and get different take outs from.  I love reading about the experiences people have when their kids are older and get inspiration for places we can go to in the future.  I take solace that it’s not just the ATWWAH’s who have to deal with tantrums and over-tired babies and toddlers.  So, thank you to my fellow nine finalists who I feel very honoured to be in the company of on the shortlist.  I still feel a little like an imposter.

One thing I do ask though is that if you are reading this post you do take a minute to vote in the BiBs, even if you’re not going to vote for this blog.  It means so much when people recognise the hard work that goes into running a blog.  And there isn’t just a travel category, there are some other interesting categories, and a few of my favourites nominated including Capture By Lucy (photo & outstanding categories),  Hurrah 4 Gin (outstanding), Mum of 3 World (family), Coco Mama Style and My Two Mums (YouTube), Downs Side Up and Sofa Dodger (Inspire) and The Unmumsy Mum (Fresh Voice)

Happy voting
