It’s been quite a while since I was last on the ask for votes so I figure you guys wont mind me asking again! The Amara Interior Blog Awards are now in their second year and they recognize all the hard work that bloggers in the interiors industry invest in their blogs. It is such a privilege to be nominated at all and I would sincerely like to thank the lovely person who nominated The Design Sheppard, whoever you may be. Writing a blog takes so much time and energy so the recognition that comes from simply being nominated is truly a gift that I treasure. Having said that, I would be lying if I said that I wouldn’t like to win, or at least be shortlisted!! But I’ve been nominated in the design inspiration category, which also happens to feature a whole host of amazing bloggers, many of whom I’m lucky enough to count amongst my friends. So the competition is really tough. If I’m honest I don’t expect to make it onto the shortlist but a girl’s gotta try right? I’d be letting myself and the person who nominated me down if I didn’t even try to campaign for votes. So if you enjoy reading my blog and I have ever inspired you with my content then please do pop on over to the voting page and cast a little vote for me. It doesn’t take long I promise and it’s not complicated but it would mean the world to me.
As you can see from the images above there are some really great blogs that have been nominated in the same category as me. I’ve voted in most of the other categories already but I couldn’t possibly vote in this one. Most of my favourite blogs are listed here so I’m truly honoured to stand beside them and to have been nominated. But only the top five bloggers with the most votes will make the shortlist and receive an invitation to the Awards Ceremony in London this October. Voting closes on the 18th September, so I’ve just over a month to gain as much support as possible. Let’s see how far I get!
And while your voting for me it’s worth taking a look at all the other categories. There are a total of 589 blogs that have been nominated in 15 categories and if you read blogs regularly I can guarantee you that there will be some of your favourite blogs in each category, all of which also need your support.
So thanks in advance for your vote and I look forward to seeing who makes the shortlist come September! Good luck to all my fellow bloggers who have been nominated, as I said I am honoured to stand beside you!
