Featured on Britmums!

I’ve recently felt down and disoriented about my blog and I even wondered whether blogging might be over for me before it even really started. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when the following subject line in my inbox caught my attention a few days ago. BM2Thoughts like, ‘my blog profile has been featured on Britmums?, this is so exciting!, I can’t believe it’ ran through my mind.

With high anticipation and trembling hands, I eagerly clicked on the subject to read the email. I was filled with such delight in that moment; I felt like a super star!

BM1I clicked on the Britmums link, sat back in my chair with a big smile on my face, and looked in amazement at my blog icon on the Britmums featured members page. ‘Wow, I’ve made it’, I think I thought. ๐Ÿ™‚

BM3I wasn’t sure what it meant to be a featured member of Brimums, the “UKโ€™s largest collective of lifestyle bloggers and digital influencers” but I sure knew it was a real boost to my blogging confidence.

I spent some time looking at the page and checking out my profile; I then excitedly tweeted about it. I was even more chuffed when Britmums retweeted my tweet and replied me.

BM4Positive recognition is quite something, isn’t it? It definitely feels good to be noticed for something you’re putting so much effort into. As a teacher, I know how important it is to praise my students for their efforts and achievements; the encouragement that this gives really does make a difference.

So dear Britmums, thank you so much for noticing my blog and featuring my blog profile on your network. I know this isn’t an award but it felt like one to me. I really appreciate your awareness of my blog and I’m so pleased I joined your bloggers network. I look forward to finding my way around your network and blogging better. Your recognition is a significant encouragement on my blogging journey.

Can you remember an instance when your effort was noticed?

  1. I know what you mean about the giving up thing. I question who I am writing for, then remember that this is a diary for me and my family when they grow up and that is all that really matters. Easy to get bogged down with stats though and I get reviewer ‘envy’. Why do they not send any products to me… You must be doing some great stuff and should keep up the hard work. Congratulations!

    • Hello Twinmummyyummy, glad you could relate with the giving up thing; so easy to stop, doubt, and give up in the blogosphere. It’s vital to keep one’s reasons for blogging in view; very helpful for those doubting days. I agree, it’s very easy to be played like a yoyo with stats and reviewer / blog envy but one must learn to rise above it. I think you’ve just inspired a post I’ll be writing at some point ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for all your kind words.

  2. It felt the same to me to… I myself didn’t have a clue what it meant, but its nice to know I wasn’t on my own on that one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Congratulations and Good luck on your blogging and do check my page out too and let me know how I’m doing. Would be nice to have a blogging friend especially as it such a big world out here… hehe. Take care x
