Writers choice nomination award

It's nearly been a year since I started writing this blog and I have come along way. I have improved in my blogging skills. Through twitter and Facebook I've been able to come into direct contact with my readers.
I have also entered food blog hops #SABH monthly, which has broadened my contact with other food bloggers, who have given me tips of what to do. Each month I enjoy creating a delicious dessert, showing that GF doesn't have to be tasteless to numerous readers from around the world.
When I joined Twitter I came in contact with many bloggers, food and non food who have complimented me on my blog and I have worked with them, received tips, pointers etc from them. I even participate in a chat forumn called #ausallergery which takes places every Tuesday nights 8.30pm AEST, we chat about allergies, where to buy products from, reactions, just living with allergies in general. Please feel free to come and join us, they are a lovely bunch of people.

For those of you who regularly read my blog (from countries all around the world), you know that I haven't had the easiest of times. This blog provides, me with an outlet and allows me to research new things about the disease and forward this information to my readers.

When I heard about the competition, my first thought was that someone else, a reader should
nominate me. But then I heard my grans voice in my head saying, 'you have to be in it to win

So I thought why not and I entered my humble blog into a big competition. My readership is wide, across many countries as is my twitter followers, it's just yet to show on my individual followers on my blog. It would mean so much to me if you could take the time and fill in the nomination form. It is the ultimate way that you can show your support for reading my blog. The competition is yet to open, it opens Friday the 13th April, this is just to remind you, get it in your head, then I will write another blog closer to the date reminding people how to vote.

So my lovely readers who have kept my blog going, I'm ever grateful too. I have one thing to ask you, the voting for this competition starts on the 13th April, you can enter my blog in this competition. Details or voting lines aren't open before then but I wanted to put the idea in your mind first.

As my readers I feel it is my duty to let you know I'm going to revamp this site, at the top of the site will be some of the lovely pictures from the dishes I have cooked, there will be more tabs, making it easier to navigate the recipes. Overall the site will look more pleasing to the eye, and easier to navigate! I hope to have all this done before judging time begins.

If you are anything like me, life can get so busy and you mean to vote for someone in a contest and you just forget the date, so although it is a little early now, I'm putting this out there to get you thinking about voting for me. I will also in the week leading up to the special day, if your not superstitious date of Friday the 13th, to remind people about the award and how to vote for me.

I appreciate your support and look forward to giving you more details about how to vote, just leave a comment if you have any questions and I can ensure I get directly to you once I have the information.
