Holy moly, I don’t believe it. I won. I won. I won. I won. I won.
If you’ve been following my blog you may recall that I submitted a post to iVillage.com.au last week for their iBlog Friday comp. Well it seems I won the damn thing. Wowsers.
Thrilled doesn’t begin to describe how I feel. Ecstatic? Yeah that’s closer. Bewildered? Yup that’s pretty close too. That will do. I’m ecstatically bewildered that the post I entered in the iBlog Friday comp on iVillage.com.au last week won.
Saying I won sounds a bit fancy as it makes it sound like there were a thousand entrants and I came first out of them all. It wasn’t quite like that. There were 11 entrants. All of them have beautiful blogs and were quite stiff competition for a newbie like me. Not only that but my work was judged by writers. Real writers. Ones that get paid to write as their job. They get paid for their writing and they picked me. So I am very proud of this result.
So what did I win? I won a CD which is neither here nor there (but thanks!) AND my full post was published on the iVillage website today. That’s right folks. Published. I have a piece published. That is the best part of this whole experience. I didn’t even need the CD.
Thank you so much to iVillage.com.au for supporting Aussie bloggers through the iBlog Friday event. They run it each week and you only need to meet two criteria to enter: you need to be Aussie and you need to have a blog. Easy! So if you are an Aussie blogger and want a bit more exposure then send a blog through to these guys by 12pm Thursday (deets are on the iBlog Friday page). They will print your info in their Friday roundup and link to your site and then the winner will get their full post published on the site the following Monday.
You can see my published piece right here!
