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. You didn’t give up, and you can’t wait to finally do it, to say you did it. That’s plenty to be proud of.
