Happy New Year people and thank you all for your support during 2015. I couldn’t do all this without you guys. Blogging can get very lonely when you don’t hear what people think, good or bad. You don’t always have to agree with me but only polite comments please. No rudeness or negativity allowed.

I have lots of blog posts planned about eating out, eczema, beating the itch, asthma etc. but before I get stuck into writing those, could I ask you for a moment of your time to help me make it to the big time? I’ve been accepted for the UK Blog Awards again. I didn’t make it last year but maybe 2016 is gonna be my year.

It’s pretty amazing to even get this far; thousands of blogs enter the awards but only a few get through to the public vote.

So what do I get out of this? Just the fame…

  • Recognised as the UK’s best individual and/or company Blog
  • Opportunity to write for your category sponsor or panel judge
  • Prestigous award and badge image for you to display
  • Marketing and PR activity to market your Blog
  • Previous UK Blog Awards have gone on to secure jobs, become full time bloggers, gain national press and businesses have gained client wins

Finally, due to the name of my blog, it’s the last in the long list of Health blogs who’ve entered so I need all the help I can get. I’ve made it easy for you as this link goes straight to the important page:

Please vote for What Allergy today in the UK Blog Awards!

Huge thanks to all of you who voted for me in the Foods You Can FreeFrom blog awards. We are all still waiting to hear the results of that. You will be the first to know.

Many thanks again in advance for this vote. It means so much. Now get voting! And remember, you get one vote per day so I am likely to drive you insane asking you to keep voting but if you have time, you can vote from each email address, every day and both categories every day! Hoorah!
