I’m a winner baby! Last night The Travelista won Best Travel Blog at the Yorkshire Blogger Awards 2021. Winning this award means so much to me because it means that despite the challenges of the pandemic and motherhood, I am still recognised as an award-winning travel blogger.
My long-time readers will know that long haul and luxury travel was a huge part of The Travelista but my lifestyle changed dramatically after the combination of a premature baby and a pandemic. Both things had a big impact on my business and my mental health and I began to question whether or not I could still make The Travelista work.
Winning this award has given me the confidence to see that The Travelista can work with my new lifestyle of being a mother, and that I can still win blog awards based on my more recent local adventures and UK breaks. I have big plans for The Travelista and in 2022 I can’t wait to return to more long-haul and overseas travel both independently and as a family of 3.
This is a reminder that it’s OK to evolve and change course! The main thing is to stay authentically you 🌸
Thanks to everyone who nominated me and to the event organisers Ascensor and talented judging panel for selecting my blog as the winner.
