On Monday I found out that I’m a finalist in this year’s Britmums Brilliance in Blogging awards.

Over the last year or so I’ve been offering bloggers free blog critique. It’s something I do purely to give back to the blogging community and since I started offering this service I have critiqued well over two hundred blogs.
