Yippy! Thanks to you amazing people I am a finalist in the Best European Blog category of the Annual Weblog Awards (otherwise known as the bloggies) once again this year. I cannot thank you enough. It is always an honour to be included. Thank you.
If you are visiting this blog for the first time from the Bloggies site; hello. Welcome to my little corner of the internet where I write about my life in The Netherlands and all my crazy adventures as an accident prone Englishman. It’s nice to meet you. If you’d like to have a look around you can find links to some of my best posts in the top right sidebar.
How To Vote:
Voting for the winner has begun so it is time for me to ask for your help once again. If you would like to vote please click the link below and select the blog of your choice (which is hopefully Invading Holland). You can vote in as many or as few categories as you like. Once you are finished scroll to the bottom of the page, fill in your details and submit. You should then receive an email which includes a link you’ll need to click in order to confirm your vote. After that you are all done but please share this information with your friends, family, pets, enemies, total strangers on the street and as many people as possible. Voting closes on the 22nd of March.
If I win I believe I own Europe until someone else wins the following year. I promise to look after it and be a fair and just ruler. Thank you.
Do you like reading Invading Holland? Would you like to wear Invading Holland? Then I have good news for you. The Invading Holland T-Shirt collection is now on sale.
Being involved in the bloggies three years in a row has been brilliant. I get excited every year when I see Invading Holland has made it through to the final. It makes me very happy. I’m aware that admitting such a thing is very un-English of me but it is really hard to contain myself (even if it does risk perminate banishment from my home country).
It makes me feel very lucky to have such amazing and supportive readers who think I’m worthy enough of being a finalist in such a huge blog award. I’ve said it before but I mean it when I say this blog would not have become what it is today without you. I’ve been a winner of the Best European Blog Award once and now a runner up twice and each time it has been very exciting.
So thank you everyone who has supported Invading Holland over the years. Congratulations to the winner; Tallbloke’s Talkstop. And watch this space again next year when the 2015 Bloggies start.
