I know that some of you kindly read and voted for a little piece I wrote for a Travel Blog competition last month. I can honestly say it was something I dashed off in about ten minutes so I didn't give it much of a second thought. I did it because someone else in a local Community group on Facebook had entered and was touting for votes to promote her 'bit' of Spain. I felt obliged to promote my 'bit'.
It's on the Near and Far blog.
Although I didn't get anywhere near as many votes as the most popular piece, I hadn't realised that it wasn't votes that really counted. There was a panel of judges who awarded the prizes, with the reader's choice also getting a prize. Well, readers, I came 'Second Runner Up', which I guess means I got 3rd prize. I was absolutely delighted when I found out! And I get £100 voucher to spend on 'LateRooms' hotels. So I have that to plan and look forward to.
Just thought I'd share this and thank those of you who left me a comment.
Now....where shall I go with my voucher?
