If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth millions….

Which is why I had to post this Instavideo!

Do you like it? I really DO need a bib (and not only the award kind!) There is no point taking me to a posho restaurant, I’ll always let the side down! But if I was an award winning blogger… hey, I’d just have to learn to eat right on account of all the dinners I’ll be having where brands and advertisers want to wine and dine me. Wait…. You mean that doesn’t happen?!

In case you are wondering what I’m talking about, the annual BiBs have just been announced and I am one of the shortlisted bloggers. JuggleMum is in the ‘Video’ category for the third year running! (Cue sizzle sound and just picture me licking my finger and placing it on my backside!)

In 2013 and 2012 I reached the final six but was pipped to the post by some worthy opponents. However this year I’ve been in training… like a marathon runner! I’ve been honing and tweaking, practising and perfecting, presenting and showcasing and building my blogging stamina so that this year I can see it through.

I educated myself by taking a YouTube Creators Academy course and put some gloss over my newly re-vamped YouTube channel. Do you like the Thumbnails? I was especially pleased with those. Now the channel looks ‘branded’ and coherent.

Several months later with loads more vlogging under my belt I was looking for somewhere to promote my work and asked BritMums “Whatever happened to the Video Round-up that used to be in existence?” The reply was an offer to become a BritMums Editor for the Video Round-up and bring that vertical back to life. Month on month this round-up is going from strength to strength and it wouldn’t be possible without my fellow vloggers – some of whom are also nominated for a Video award (I wouldn’t expect any less – we are building some momentum and getting noticed! I’m delighted that we are all in the mix and good luck to each and every one.)

So who is on the shortlist I hear you ask? You can see the full list here.

The next step is to vote for your favourite bloggers so they make the Final where a Judge in each category will select the ultimate winner. The Finalists are made up of ones who get the most votes plus 2 picks from the BritMums team and the voting ends at Midnight on 16th May 2014.

You can read about the voting stages and relevant dates here.

The winners will be announced at the BiBs Awards Party and Ceremony on 20th June 2014, presented by Katy Hill, blogger, TV Presenter and longtime BritMums supporter.

I’d love your vote for Video – just select JuggleMum in that section and pick the rest of your favourite bloggers in the other categories. I’m not going to be campaigning, sending out ‘Vote for me’ Tweets or Facebook messages. I’m going to ask just once – right here, right now. I hope you are motivated to vote for me, and you’ll be increasing your feel-good factor if you do. (Did you know that it’s scientifically proven that you’ll be happier when you do a good deed?!)

You can vote for me here…. And “Thank you”.
