Not long ago, I blogged about my excitement at becoming a finalist in the UK Blog Awards 2019 – and now I can happily announce that I’ve won!
Thanks to all your votes, mrplantgeek.com won the Nature & Wildlife category. I’m very proud to have received the award, especially against such excellent competition within the category. Judges Kate Stephenson from Kate On Conservation and Will Travers, President of the Born Free foundation, chose from a collection of blogs focussing on plants, wildlife, conservation, and more. They decided that this very website was worthy of the accolade – and I couldn’t be happier!
Since 2013, I’ve poured time and creativity into each bit of content I’ve posted onto this blog. Over those years, it has grown into something more than I ever could have imagined when I first started. That’s all thanks to you – thank you for reading each post, following my journey on social media, opening my newsletters and watching me on TV. I like to think that I work hard, but without the readers of this blog, I wouldn’t have been able to receive this award.
I hope you’ll enjoy the content that I continue to post. As ever, I welcome your feedback on the type of content you would like to see from me, so let me know if the comments section (below) or on social media.
