Last year, right about this time, I received a mysterious email. It was from a person I did not know, but the subject line was intriguing. It simply stated, You Have Been Nominated. Probably spam, I know, but I couldn't resist.
Turns out it was legit. The email was from, Amara, a retailer headquartered in the UK. They were hosting their second annual Interior Blog Awards and I had been nominated by a reader.
I made an announcement, but as a relatively new blogger, I never expected to win.
And I didn't.
I did however get voted into the Top 5 and was invited to London for an elegant cocktail ceremony where the winners would be announced.
I also made some great contacts and worked with a few companies, was offered a couple of writing gigs and was even featured in Amara's magazine, The Lux Pad. Overall, it was a great experience.
Well, imagine my complete and total surprise when a few days ago, I received the same.exact.email.
Apparently, I have been nominated again this year!
I am excited all over again and would like to thank my mystery nominator. Whoever you are.
If you would like to check out the other nominees or vote for me, you can check out my voting page.
I don't expect to win this year either, but it really, truly has been an honor to be nominated.
And a very nice surprise.
Now, if only one of those you have just won $42,000,000 from a foreign prince emails would be legit.
Maybe someday. ;)
