Now I’m going to get straight to the point, I am terrible at selling myself. I would rather spend all day finding out things and learning about everyone else than have to try to sell me and what I do. But today I am going to completely step out of my comfort zone and shamelessly ask for your support by nominating Organised Jo for an award. If you don’t ask you don’t get, right?!
First of all, what are the Brilliance in Blogging Awards?
Well, the BiBs highlight the very best of lifestyle blogging by parents, recognising the most creative, inventive and compelling blogging and social media work of the year. Last year more than 210,000 nominations and votes were cast – making it one of the UK’s most popular blogger awards! There are 11 categories this year.
Why nominate Organised Jo?
Now I have thought long and hard about what category Organised Jo could go in and I have finally decided it best fits in the Inspire category.
For this category BiB’s are looking for the content, the voice, the infectious enthusiasm of bloggers who encourage everyone around them, whether it’s about a charitable cause, personal challenges or simply rising to the demands of daily life.
My reason for choosing the Inspire category is that when I read all the fab comments left on my posts by you lovely readers, the words which keep coming up are ‘you have inspired me’ or ‘you have motivated me’. And that there in a nutshell is why I set up Organised Jo.
I have been a working parent for nearly 9 years now and throughout those years I have learnt, often the hard way, how to manage and juggle our hectic lives. Yes I have been that Mum that has forgotten a child’s friends birthday party, lost the school shoes moments before needing to head out the door and felt like I was drowning with all the paperwork that having kids at school bring. Organised Jo came about as I wanted a place to share what has worked for me in the hope of it helping other working parents.
So if I have inspired you in any way I would really appreciate your vote.
How do you nominate Organised Jo?
So there you have it, my heart on my sleeve, a good old shameless plug and a blushing Jo pressing publish on this post!
