May is without a doubt, the best month of the year. There are 2 bank holidays, it’s my Birthday and it’s the month that nominations for the Cosmo Blog Awards open! After being shortlisted to win Best Travel Blog at last years Cosmo Blog Awards, I was utterly stunned and over the moon, so you can imagine my excitement of potentially making it onto that prestigious shortlist for the second year running.
Last year The Travelista was shortlisted into the Best Travel Blog category just 4 months after it was launched into the blogosphere (not bad going if I do say so myself). I went to the super stylish London awards ceremony in the XO tower and loved every minute of it – check out my Cosmo Blog Award lowdown post. I mingled, drank Cosmos and made friends with some amazing fellow bloggers including Hitched and Ditched, Kaori from Kaori Anne, Hannah from Hannah Leigh, Nicola from Nics Nutrition and Kate from Pretty Little Us. Overall, the whole experience made me fall in love with blogging even more and made me even more determined to make sure I made it back there the following year.
One year on and my blog has transformed my career, taken me away on travels and most importantly, I have built up a loyal readership and following of fellow Travelistas. If you are one of the fabulous individuals that visit my blog on a regular basis or if you have simply just stumbled across it now and are intrigued to see more, please take 2 minutes to nominate me to win Best Travel Blog in this year’s Cosmo Blog Awards 14.
Winning Best Travel Blog at the Cosmo Blog Awards 2014 would mean absolutely everything to me, and help me continue to inspire others to travel , help aspiring travel bloggers and prove that blogging really can change your life!
