UK Blog Awards 2018: Why you should vote for me!

Participating in the UK Blog Awards is like running a marathon. Nobody really expects to win on their first go. But who cares if you don’t win, you’re still going to run! After all, you’ve spent a year in training, pushing yourself to run faster, further, breathe deeper. You’ve raised money from your friends, family and colleagues in support of your favourite charity.
