Bet you’d never catch Meryl Streep doing this…

When they first announced that nominations for this year’s Oscars had opened, can you imagine if Meryl had taken to her blog, facebook page or twitter to encourage the Academy to nominate her for The Iron Lady?

Well no, because she’s Meryl Streep and she is brilliantly talented and known the whole world over.

As I am none of the above, now that nominations for this year’s Brilliance in Blogging Awards have opened, I am shamelessly taking to my blog, facebook page and twitter account to subtly hint that I might quite like to be nominated in just one of the categories. 

I do not think I stand a genuine chance of winning a BiB award, however as I have been regularly tapping away at my little keyboard, trying to come up with new and entertaining stories for almost a whole year now, I suppose it might be quite nice to know that someone is reading… maybe even enjoying!   Well, that would just be totally amazing actually. 

The categories are listed here but I think I am probably most eligible in Laugh! and possibly Fresh Voice too, as my blog is still under 12-months old.  But totally up to you if think I stand a chance in any of the other categories… think Best Dad Blogger might be stretching the realms of possibility just a tad though!

To make it even easier for you, I have included links to a few popular/funny posts below, so all you really need to do is copy & paste the URL of your favourite one into the relevant box.

Ok, cringe moment over. 

Here’s the nomination form:

    I of course will be nominating you for a BiB – not just because you are my best bloggy friend, but also because you are bloggy brilliant! xxx

    So funny, I used the Oscar analogy too-calling the Bibs The Blogging Oscars-imagine if Meryl did do that-she has Hervey Weinstein working the publicity campaign though and he’s the number one man in Hollywood! Good luck lovely x

      Haha, yes I guess the timing of the Oscars and the BiBs made it an easy analogy. I love Meryl. I am so happy she won, even though I have not seen the film! Good luck to you too lovely xx

    Well done lovely! You definitely deserve a nomination and there’s nothing wrong with a bit of gentle pimping! Wouldn’t it be fab if Meryl Streep did have a blog?! Wonder if PR’s would send her crap press releases too?? 😉

      Haha, if they did I am sure she would have someone delete them for her!
      Thanks Karin x
