Guess who was made a finalist {Kidspot Voices Of 2015}

finalise voice15

I’m sitting here in the wee small hours of the morning (4.23 am to be precise) shaking my fist at the gods of the internet for their meanness. Fancy cutting off my supply when I’m up, awake and hoping to whip out a few hours of online work before the daily routine starts and I’m too tired to think straight.     Unfair I say.  (Very softly so I don’t wake up the family.)  

  This blog has been around for while and has received the odd nomination for a few things here and there (most of which I’ve minimised away in my own special and unique style) but for some reason this one feels a little different.  Perhaps because these days there are SO MANY awesome online creatives.  Compared to back when I began here, when you could literally comment on every other blog in the land, the blogosphere is massive and filled with a wonderful mix of creative, clever and well-studied influencers. 

Anyway I am chuffed.  Tickled pink in fact.  (What the hell does that saying actually mean?  Do people turn a particular shade of pink when they are both happy and being tickled?  Sorry – did I say it was really early?)   I have no idea who made the original nomination, but secretly I think I might love you.  Thank-you with all my heart.   It means a lot to know that the effort that goes into this patch of cyber-space is worthwhile.  To be honest it also means a lot to be recognised for my skills as an online creative because this is something I LOVE to do.  And, like most bloggers, I’ve worked very hard to develop them. 

I am not about to start preparing my winning acceptance speech or anything like that.   But I am going to celebrate this  achievement and enjoy the process of being part of Kidspot’s #VoicesOf2015.  If I am lucky (or clever) this might even  draw some attention to my digital communications and social media management work – because picking up an extra client to two is never a bad thing.  But in the end I am just going to ride this journey through and suck out every little ounce of joy and fun it offers me.   Being a finalist is fabulous ~thanks Kidspot.   And cheers to the other 102 awesome online creative finalists too.

Hello fellow finalist 🙂 Happy to meet you!
As for the up at 4. something o’clock, best time of the day to get (quietly) cracking isn’t it, but no internet? That’s just cruel.

I know! I was VERY unimpressed with this turn of event. It came back on about 8.00am when I was busy scrambling to get kids off to school. So much for the NBN hey. Thanks so much for visiting – look forward to keeping up with your lovely posts.

NBN $#%^!! is what I generally mumble under my breath when I’ve just turned the whole thing on and off again for the upteenth time in order to get it to work. Luckily it’s working now though 🙂

Thanks Lisa. I have been having a ball with it so far. Been in the local paper and even did a radio interview this morning for Bendigo ABC. Making the most out of it while it lasts!
