Fellow parents, take heed.
You may remember last year when I asked – nay, begged – for your nomination in the MAD Blog Awards 2010. You came up trumps, and in September I found myself in Bognor Regis at a rather swanky awards ceremony. It was a great evening, apart from the fact I didn’t win either of the categories I was nominated in. The swines.
A year later I’m older, wiser and I’ve grown a dashing goatee.
And, I’m back to beg for your nomination again.
Like last year, there are a number of categories: best craft blog, best food blog, etc. ‘Goodbye, Pert Breasts’ doesn’t really fall into any of these categories – I’d hardly call my video review of a Slendertone Abs thing ‘inspiring’, nor is my post on bad-ass savannah animals – and so I have my eyes on the big one: MAD Blogger of the Year.
I can feel you warming towards nominating me, but still need a bit of a push, like Stephen Hawking does when his batteries run flat. (There goes the warmth.)
So why should you nominate me? Sit tight, and I’ll tell you. It won’t take long.
- The goatee thing.
- I’ve written two books: ‘Goodbye, Pert Breasts’ and ‘Teething Pains’, both of which are hilarious and may or may not sell more copies than Harry Potter.
- I’m writing a third book over the next few months for charity.
- I’m a lovely person.
- My tweets are actually worth reading.
- The goatee thing, again.
So go on. It’ll take two minutes, which is less time than it’s taken you to read this post. If you do nominate me, I’ll send you some sweeties via email.
