Voting is now live for the UK Blog Awards 2018 – and I’m delighted to announce that I have been nominated in both the ‘Health and Social Care’ and ‘International Influencers’ categories!
The UK Blog Awards recognise a variety of individuals and organisations with social media talent across the United Kingdom each year. The richness and diversity of nominees is fantastic – and encompasses every area possible. From photography and parenting, to travel and education – there’s a blog out there for it! You can check out the individual entrants for the 2018 UK Blog Awards here, and the organisational entrants for the 2018 UK Blog Awards here.
If you’re reading this, then I hope you’ll be familiar with my website and social media presence! I started my blog on this website so that I had a platform to share my thoughts, feelings, and experiences of living with chronic health conditions. I also wanted my blog to be a hub for sharing many opportunities that I have become involved with, having found my voice, and having ignited my passion for engaging and involving others in finding their ‘spark’ when it comes to health research.
“I dream for a day where ill health is no longer a daily challenge for those living with chronic conditions, and those caring for their loved ones. Having witnessed first hand how incredibly difficult it is, I blog to help others realise that they’re not alone, and that there are opportunities out there which could transform their lives – just as my life has been transformed thanks to the work of many other people. It would be an honour and a privilege to win a UK Blog Award – not just personally, but as recognition for the community of incredible young people out there, living with chronic conditions, who are trying to change the world with me, so that future generations don’t have to go through what we have experienced.”
