Remember how I pestered you for votes for the 2014 Big Blog Exchange? And how I explained (see post here) that running the world is my dream and that being one of the 16 winners of the Big Blog Exchange would help me achieve it? Well, I have some amazing news: I'm a finalist!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for every, single vote. I'm painfully aware of the fact that we're all bombarded by pleas for votes for anything from baby photo contests to Bride-of-the-Year awards on a daily basis, so taking the time to support my dream truly means a lot. Thank you also to every person who shared my pleas on their social media channels - seeing and knowing that friends and family support my
crazy dreams has been a major highlight of the competition for me so far.
|Dreams are so much more fun with the support of friends and family!|
Another highlight has been meeting new blogging friends from around the globe - Malaysia, Norway, Argentina, Ireland, India, Singapore and the Philippines... So exciting! Experiencing support and positivity from all of them has been incredible; swapping countries with one of them will be the icing on the cake!
So, what happens now? Well, an international jury is busy evaluating each of the 100 finalists as we speak and will announce the 16 winners, who will swap countries and blogs for 10 days, on 16 September 2014. I can tell you one thing: It's going to be a loooooong eleven days of waiting...! I'll keep you updated, but in the meantime - please hold thumbs?
