The MAD Blog Awards – I am a finalist! 2

When I started this blog, 11 months ago, I hoped that I could use it to reach out to others facing the daily challenges of living with and feeding an intolerant or allergic child. I was pleasantly surprised about how steadily my following grew and I have learned so much from them, many I now regard as friends. 

When I found out about the MAD blog awards, I decided to enter because I thought it might provide a platform to get my (many messages) out there and raise awareness of the struggles so many face just trying to get a proper diagnosis, let alone treatment. 

Making it to the final was a great surprise and I just want to thank everyone who has supported me with their words of encouragement and votes. But we are not quite there yet. One final stage to go.

I am one of the five finalists in the Best New Blog category. Nominations close on 26th March and I would be very grateful if you could support me with one last vote. Here is the link.

I am in a tough category, and feel very honoured to be in such great company. Just to get this far feels amazing and I am so excited at the prospect of meeting all the other finalists at the awards ceremony later in the year. 

Thank you all.
