Right now here is a shameless plug for my humble little blog, voted in the top UK allergy blogs which is already pretty cool.

Pretty please would you mind ever so voting for my blog in the Weblog awards? I didn’t get anywhere in the last one but it was worth having a go.

You can vote here:

But the snag is, you have to nominate 3 blogs to vote.
Weblog of the year award

The deadline for voting is 26th January which is not far away.

Schroll down the page to see the different categories; I think Health or Best Topical Blog are the best fits and I would be very grateful for any votes. The blog now regularly gets over 3,000 unique hits a day and almost 80,000 visits a month which is pretty awesome.

It would be amazing to have an award logo to show off so thanks in advance. It really should only take a few minutes.

If you need some ideas of other blogs to nominate how about:

Pig in the Kitchen – – for best food blog

Or maybe the Morgen Bailey’s writing blog because there is a writing blog category too.

Happy voting.
It should only take you a few moments now you are armed with a list of blogs so no excuses. Grab a glass of wine, get your ipad, visit and nominate the night away.

And if you know of any other great blogs that you would vote for please share them as a comment below – you never know, they might get chosen too! A blog called My Boyfriend is T**t won best European blog last year so I’m not sure what on earth that bodes for my potential success or otherwise…

Thank you all and goodnight!
