The last week has been chaotic for the Mad Blog Awards. After an overwhelming response to the nominations stage we finally finished checking and counting and revealed our Mad Blog Award finalists.
From entertaining to crafting, to downright outstanding, we think these awards showcase the very best in blogging talent from the UK.
We are so proud of everyone who took part. Each nomination is a sign that someone loves reading their blog and everyone who entered this year should give themselves a huge pat on the back.
Now it is time for the next stage to begin. Voting has officially opened, and before making your choices you may want to spend some time on our finalist page, getting to know the nominated blogs better and seeing what it was about them that got them to the final.
You can vote for your winner in fifteen of the categories, the exceptions being Blog of the Year and our very special Outstanding Blogger Award which are both chosen by our judging panel, including Parentdish editor Tamsin Kelly.
If you have not come across parent blogging before, now is the perfect time to start. Have a look at some of the range of styles and topics and we are sure you will find one that tickles your fancy.
So, what are you waiting for? Make your choices and help us decide the Mad Blog Award winners of 2013.
