Nominations open today for the BiB Awards 2014

So, the MAD Award nominations have only just closed but a different set of nominations are now open for another awards ceremony which recognises the efforts of the humble parent blogger - the BiBs.

From today, you can do your bit to recognise the brilliant blogs you read by nominating them for a BiB (Brilliance in Blogging) Award. Hosted by BritMums and highly contested, with more than 200,000 nominations and votes cast last year alone, the BiBs do exactly what they say - celebrate brilliance in blogging.

There are 16 categories in total for which bloggers can be nominated. If you consider To Become Mum worthy of a nomination, you have until the 12th April to do so and I know that any blogger you decide to support will really appreciate it. I'd particularly like to be considered for the Fresh Voice, Inspire and Family categories, but I'll leave you to decide.

Once the nominations close, 16 lucky bloggers are chosen - 11 from the public nominations and five from the BritMums team - and the shortlist will be announced on 29th April. The voting then opens and you have until 16th May to vote for your winners, with the six finalists of each category are announced on 23rd May (four chosen with the most votes and two by BritMums). FINALLY, the overall winners of each category are announced at BritMums Live on 20th June.

Phew! That's a lot to take in! But don't worry, all you need to do is a) nominate and b) vote.

It's really hard to decide who to put forward for awards such as these as there are so many great blogs and lovely bloggers out there, and we all want to be good at what we do. Recognition of our efforts is amazing and if I were to be nominated for a BiB, I would be amazed and truly grateful.

Find out more about the awards here - now go, make your nomination today!
