A few weeks ago, I wrote about being nominated in the UK Blog Awards 2017 and encouraged readers to vote for markwilson.it. This morning, I received an email which said:
“We are delighted to advise that your content has reached the final stage in the UK Blog Awards process as a Digital and Technology individual finalist.”
Thank you to everyone who voted. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in April and there’s some stiff competition as I’m up against 7 great blogs but it’s brilliant to even get this far!
I got a bit of a surprise in my email recently, when I saw that someone had nominated this blog for the UK Blog Awards 2017. That’s a nice touch – after 14 years and well over 2000 posts (some that even I now regard as drivel and some that people find useful), it’s exactly the kind of feedback that keeps me going!
The site has no marketing team (just me), no social media campaign (just my website and my Twitter feed @markwilsonit) – and now it’s the public vote where I’m up against all of the other entrants in the Digital and Technology category vying for a place on the shortlist of 8 blogs.
So, if you’ve ever found something I’ve written useful (or maybe just because you think I sound like a decent bloke and you’d like to support me), please head over to the UK Blog Awards website and vote for markwilson.it in the Digital and Technology category!
Voting is open from Monday 5th December 2016 at 8:00 until Monday 19th December at 10:00 and each email address only counts once!
