There are now just 3 days left until voting closes for the Mad Blog Awards 2013 and I know I have been banging on about it to anyone who will listen but guess what?
I am a freaking Finalist!.
I have been shortlisted in the ‘Most Entertaining Blog’ category.
Whilst I am absolutely over the moon that I have got this far, I gotta tell you, the pressure to be entertaining is starting to get to me. I won’t lie, I am starting to crack under the strain.
Just what is ‘entertaining’? I lie awake at night asking myself this very question. At 3am I wake in a cold sweat with the beginnings of a blog post forming in my mind, only for it to dance just out of my grasp as I try to get it down onto my iPhone. Is it good enough? What was it again? Thwarted, I fall into a fitful sleep before waking again at 4am so that I can wake husb and we can ponder the question together in the early hours of the morning.
Do I need to be consistently funny? Is that entertaining? Do I need to keep losing my underwear? That one appears to be getting quite a lot of views so surely that must be entertaining mustn’t it? Although you don’t want to know what filth people put into Google to come up with my blog! Let’s just say that those dirty filth searchers are sorely disappointed when they read it.
Should I be going to extreme lengths in an effort to engineer situations that I could then potentially turn into bloggy fodder, I wonder?
Do I break the law for example, for the sake of a blog? Been there, done that..
What about getting covered in vomit for the good of a story? Tick.
What more do you want from me!
Jazz Hands! I can do Jazz Hands!
The details – if you appreciate the sacrifices I make in the name of entertainment then please take a second to vote for me here in Most Entertaining Blog.
Voting closes midnight on 26th March GMT.
