I stumbled across the UK Blog Awards in the spring when I was thinking about applying for business awards this year.
As I’d started blogging in summer 2016 and had been included in Feedspot‘s Top 40 Laser Cutting Blogs in the world and their Top 100 Laser Blogs to do with any laser applications, I decided to go for it and throw my hat in the ring.
What are the UK Blog Awards?
They started in 2014 and provide a unique opportunity for individuals and companies to be recognised for their social media achievements through blogging, vlogging, instagramming and snapchatting.
These awards are open to everyone, no matter how big or small their following. It doesn’t matter whether blogs are for business or pleasure, and small businesses are as welcome as large ones.
Categories include Digital and Technology (the one I entered), Arts and Culture, Travel, Food and Drink and Parenting and the list grows every year. There are nineteen categories for 2018.
How it all works
Submissions closed on 20th November. Public voting for favourite blogs is underway now and closes on 22nd December. Finalists are announced on 2nd January and the expert judges then have a chance to vote. Winners will be announced at the awards evening on 20th April 2018.
Why I blog
I started blogging to show more examples of projects I’ve worked on, with customers’ permission of course. When I started writing my Project of the Month news shots, customers told me they found the case studies inspiring and gave them ideas.
I also use the blog to share artwork design tips for customers and news, like Feedspot rating my blog and winning an ASB award in September.
How you can help

You can read my application if you like, or just scroll to the bottom of the page to vote. You need to enter your name and email address. Select the Digital and Technology category (the only option as I only entered in that category). Finally, click the SUBMIT button.
