Can we be inspirational?
Yes, I hope so.
If you’ve followed my blog for a while now you’ll have heard me mention #TribalChat. If you don’t know what this is well it started out and still is a Twitter chat hour on a Tuesday at 8pm. The brilliant Katie from Mummy in a Tutu is behind it all. Over the last year we have grown in numbers, have a Facebook group and numerous chats 24/7.
Three times a year we hold an awards ceremony to celebrate all bloggers, big and small. It doesn’t matter if you’ve only been blogging 5 minutes as long as you are a member of the Tribal Chat Facebook group you can join in. This time round we have 18 awards to choose from and I’m pretty sure if we could we would all vote for Katie to win them all.
Katie is my inspiration behind continuing to blog this past year. I think she is marvellous and is the hardest working, selfless individual I’ve come across in a long time. She deserves the best. There you go I used the word inspiration. All the hard work that Katie puts in inspires me to carry on blogging. Even on my darker days I know it’s still possible to achieve something in the blogging world because I see her achieving.
So why am I talking about inspiration all of a sudden? One of the categories in the Tribal Chart awards is for an Inspirational blogger. I think it’s quite a big thing to be labelled inspirational but if you look a little closer at all the bloggers on the voting list they are all in some form or another inspirational. Writing about what we love and do on a daily basis for people to read, self promotion, achieving little growth milestones, is all pretty impressive.
Louise from Little Hearts Big Love won the Inspiration award last time, to be honest, if she won it again she’d totally deserve it. She writes about her little family and campaigns in the heart matters. Every thing I read from Louise lifts my spirits or melts my heart, she is truly a talented writer and a champion blogger.
At the end of the last awards I got the cutest message from Helena at the Queen of collage. She told me that she’d nominated me for the Inspiration award. I was truly touched that a. She had voted for me and b. Then went out of her way to let me know. Thank you Helena.
When it came round to these current awards I thought I’d do a little campaigning for votes. I don’t need to win anything really, I am content that I’ve won the friendship of some truly lovely bloggers. That still, a little part of me decided I’d be doing Katie an injustice if I didn’t make an effort and see if I could win something! After all there are only 100 or so entrants in the group, I stand a better chance winning something than at Brit Mums or Tots.
Choosing my categories to be nominated in was tough but thanks to Helena voting inspiration for me last time I figured I’d go with this. But am I inspirational?
Yes, I hope so! I get lots of lovely comments on my blog that makes me think to an extent I am Inspirational. As a family we go on many outdoor adventures to a variety of far out destinations, up hills, down dales, on bikes, on foot. Writing about this hopefully inspires others to do it too. The Robot and I spend a lot of time messing about and playing, I document this down for others to try, again I hope this is inspirational as well! I’m pretty sure that there are other reasons but I’ll leave it for you to make your mind up!
If you think I am at least a little bit Inspirational I would love it if you could go and vote for me in the Tribal Chat Awards. Click the image link below to go to Katie’s site and in the voting form put my name ‘Two Tiny Hands’ in the box next to Inspirational.
Whats that? Dedication and Super Blogger!? As part of the voting process you can have votes on 3 categories, at a push and if you don’t mind then please put Two Tiny hands in these too!
Please let me know in the comments if you are going to vote for me? If you are entrant too and want to be considered for a category then let me know I’ll do my best to vote for you. Be my cheerleaders on the 17th of January at the awards night too, I expect we will trend on Twitter so it can’t be missed! Hope to see you there! Thanks Karen 🙂
