So unless you've been hiding out under a rock for the past few weeks I've no doubt everyone will know about the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards, I'm also pretty sure you're all sick and tired of the blog posts about them, but regardless of this you should still read on!
I was thrilled when one of my readers sent me a DM on twitter telling me they had nominated my blog, JustJulie for the Cosmopolitan Best New Beauty blog and not just that, they even nominated me for Next Newcomer Blog Award, which is also in association with the Cosmopolitan awards! I knew nothing about the awards at the time but I honestly felt so overwhelmed that one of my followers thought of me and nominated me of their own back!
I started my little blog at the beginning of the year and never thought for one minute that four and a half months down the line that I'd still be doing it and also that I would have gained over 850 followers on Bloglovin' and not just that, have a total of nearly 2200 followers across the platforms that I'm on! Those numbers are just crazy and also makes me feel slightly emotional too!
I simply adore blogging. It's something I always wanted to do but I was just unable to fully commit to it, but I'm so pleased I finally did. I've got to know some amazing bloggers along the way and discovered so many new blogs. I honestly never realised how big the blogging community was and also how nice they all are. I'm excited to see how much my blog will develop over time too.
I'm under no illusion that I will win either award. I'm also doubtful that I'll even make the shortlist on either award but I have nothing to lose by putting myself out there and giving it a good go! To have just one person nominate me is an amazing feeling as it is! BUT if you enjoy my blog and have learnt or gone on to purchase something from just reading my blog then I'd love it if you would pop a little nomination down for JustJulie.
The two categories are:
Best New Beauty Blog which is for beauty blogs that are under 18 months old
Next Newcomer Blog which is for blogs under a year old.
Clicking on the title will take you directly to the web page and will also open up in a new tab.
If you do decide to nominate me then I thank you in advance!
Until Next Time
