Over the weekend something happened that made my heart sing! JuggleMum became an award winning blog.
Nadine Hill JuggleMum Wins Brilliance in Blogging Awards 2014 for Video
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all who took the time to nominate my blog, JuggleMum for a #BiB Award, and to the judges for picking me! Here is a video that I started to record then passed the camera to the lovely Michelle from The Purple Pumpkin Blog to film as I made my way to the stage!
I’ve been working on my videos and the presentation of my YouTube channel for more than a year now to improve it and post regular, original content. I love to share recipe vlogs, particularly for slimming puddings as I am on a weight loss journey and have a sweet tooth! But I’ve also recently started to produce fashion vlogs as I miss being immersed in fashion as I was before I had the kids when I worked in fashion PR. It is my 40th birthday this year and so I thought that a web TV show about 40+ style would be a fun project to work on. My first vlog of ‘Woah-Man!‘ went live earlier this month and I’ve had some great feedback from women my age who want to see vlogs like this, just for them. I’m currently working on the second episode and will share it next month, but this is an example of one of the ways in which I’m trying to develop my video content and move the channel forward.
The Brilliance in Blogging Awards which are held in London during BritMums Live have been running for three years and I was a Finalist in both 2012 and 2013 for the video category. Looks like it is ‘three times a charm!’
Here is a short vlog I recorded on the night – an acceptance speech, just as I promised!!
Thank you BritMums for all the organisation that went into hosting these awards, it was a night I’ll never forget.
