Yes, that’s right, we did it! We officially have an award winning blog! We are the Trespass Outdoor Blog of the Year in the hiking and walking category.
After making the final shortlist of five in the hiking and walking section, and coming up against four other brilliant outdoor blogs, today we were crowned winners. Not only did we have some seriously good competition, but all of this seems utterly remarkable as our blog is just 10 months old. We were the baby of the group. The bright, cocky little upstarts. But, just as Leicester proved last season, sometimes form and history go out of the window. Of course, that also probably means my form will now dip and I’ll disappear into obscurity haha.
So, in perilous danger of sounding like an annoying, whining, overly-emotional Oscar winner, I want to say thanks. Thanks to you, our readers and followers, for reading about our daft outdoor family adventures. Without you reading our articles or liking, commenting and sharing our posts, nobody (outside of Nat and my mum) would ever have heard of Potty Adventures. Your interactions make it genuinely worthwhile. I love that you tag us in inspirational outdoor family fun on Instagram. It’s great that we’ve got a regular hiking group where I get to spend time with some of you face-to-face in the great outdoors. It’s bloody fantastic that, through the blog, a bunch of you stumped up over £500 in a week for my chosen charity, The Amelia-Mae Foundation. So thanks.
How will you celebrate? I hear you cry. Well, in true Potty Adventures style that’s how. I’ve been for a walk with Amelie, cranking out a short but sweet 3.6 miles for our #walk1000miles challenge. All I need now is a curry and beer or three.
Thanks again to anyone who nominated us in the first place, everyone who voted for us, and all of you that shared our place in the final to get us wider support and recognition. You’re all awesome. Now, believe it or not, my day could still get better. You see, every time someone donates to my #walk1000miles Just Giving page I get a little ‘ding’ on my phone. So, part with some pennies this evening for a truly wonderful cause and send me some dings! Thank again.
