Yeah, so I cried earlier out of happiness because of the blog awards winners announcement, which can be found here.
I just…. I DON’T… FOUR AWARDS?! Guys, I can’t BELIEVE this.
Me. Winning AWARDS. FOUR. Blogger of the year – WHY?! I’M JUST ME! I thought I might win one but FOUR?!
I don’t even know how to function any more. I never thought this would happen to me – that after 9 months, I would have found so many amazing friends, and that I would have been able to talk freely, without judgement, to people that I trust. You are all amazing. I’m speechless, I just don’t know WHAT possessed you guys to nominate me. Seriously.,I’m in shock.
But anyway, enough of the “OMG I LIKE WON AWARDZ” crap. I need to thank somebody.
I’ve already sent off emails to everyone else that won – if I didn’t, I’ll say it here. You are all amazing and EVERY SINGLE one of you means something to me. Whether you made me laugh, think, or want to give you a huge hug, you’ve all impacted my life. You deserve the awards you got, and quite frankly, all the ones you DIDN’T get, too. I love you so much. I’ll write a bit about each one, just a bit, and you can find the link in Ambie’s (is it with a y or ie? post.
Caitlin: You’re an inspiration to me. Always have been, always will be. The moment you started, I was just in awe of your posts, and you’ve always brought the blogging community together.
Anthony: SERIOUSLY, you are the best thing ever. You make me laugh and feel so happy, and you’re just such a wonderful person. Keep smiling and being amazing and just generally saying hilarious AND thought-provoking things.
Dziey: I am in awe of you, simple as. You exploded onto the blogging world with a bang, getting right into the middle of the community, and THAT is something you should be proud of. Seriously, I flailed around for about 3 or 4 months before I managed to be vaguely okay at blogging. You’re going to go far, I know it, and I will hopefully be around to see it and cheer you on as much as possible. You bloody well deserve it.
Alex: I swear, every time you make a new post, I smile. Whenever I get an email from you, I ALWAYS look forward to what you say. You just make me happy, simple as, and it’s amazing that we’ve got so much in common. I’ve only known you for a short time, but I think you are wonderful.
Keira: Seriously, you’re amazing. You give the best advice, and are just always there for me whenever I need it, ready to put that smile back on my face. I’ve not known you long, but that doesn’t matter; you’ve managed to brighten up my life by just being you.
Em: Oh, what can I say? I’ve said it all before, in the email, but I would never have had got through this year if it weren’t for you. You lift my spirits, make me smile and you’re always here to remind me I’m not alone. It means so much to me. Always keep being you, because you are like no one else I’ve ever known.
The person I want to thank the most is The Ambivert, or Ambie, and I’ve got something to say to you.
There are some people that just bring the blogging world together, or just this side of the blogosphere, and you’re one of them. From this little award, you’ve made people feel so happy, and put smiles on their faces that have lasted for days. You’ve been optimistic, fantastic, and you know what? YOU deserve blogger of the year, I’m telling you now. YOU’RE the one that brought us together in the last days of 2015, and that counts for so much. Thank you, you amazing girl.
No matter if you got nominated or not, if you won or not, you’re ALL wonderful. Even if 2015 went badly for you, look forward with a smile. We all deserve an award, and we’ve all already got it. You’re amazing.
From Elm 🙂
