Be bold? I’d have to be pretty bold to enter and ask you to vote for me in the 2015 UK Blog Awards after winning in 2014, right? I love being bold…or italic, but never regular (beautiful letterpress print by Cabaret Typographie)…
Yes, my Young Persons Blog Award is still pride of place in my room and I still can’t really believe that I won. As I mentioned in my ‘In it to win it’ post, I have met so many amazing people, been given so many opportunities and developed my blog so much since April. I am so grateful to you all for voting for me!
The UKBA15 public voting opened last Monday but I was in Glasgow at the MTV awards (crazy I know) so am a little bit behind… 7 days behind in fact, so let’s get voting!
In the 2015 UK Blog Awards I am nominated in 2 categories – Lifestyle (which is such a strong category, I know I don’t have a chance!) and Arts & Culture. In 2014 I didn’t really see my blog fitting into any of the categories which is why I entered the young persons category – it was quite general. However since getting my first graduate job and moving to London I think Graphique Fantastique has developed a lot. London is a big city with so much to see and do and I am really enjoying exploring, attending exhibitions and experiencing new things. I don’t feel the need to be pigeon-holed because I love to cover a range of things here from BA (Hon)est to Fonts & Food posts, but I think I am transitioning into an Arts & Culture blogger – what do you think?
If you agree and would like to see me go to more exhibitions and workshops then please vote Graphique Fantastique for Arts & Culture blog in the UK Blog Awards 2015. It would make me really happy and mean that I can continue experiencing and sharing all of the weird and wonderful things that I see.
Just to remind you, here are a few posts I prepared earlier (how very Blue Peter of me, I know!)…
