Hey nerds. Some of you have inquired as to my recovery and mental health after my Easter weekend camping experience. I would just like to let you all know I am okay and thank you for your kind words of support during this time. It is nice to know I am not the only one who has gotten sand in a bad place.
Now I want to ask you all a massive favour. The Australian Writers' Centre is holding their Best Australian Blogs 2013 Competition and my little blog was nominated! Ok I was already going to enter myself anyway but I was totally stoked that someone actually nominated me, although the little squeaky voice in my ear is shouting, “idiot it was probably YOUR MUM.”
Anyway I really want to win the People’s Choice Award! If you vote for me I will be absolutely stoked - click here to vote,it only takes a minute. Just make sure you click ‘done’ at the end to make your vote count.
If you Twitter, the competition hashtag is #bestblogs13.
First prize for the People's Choice Award is $1000 worth of courses from the Australian Writers’ Centre which offers writing courses for pleasure and profit. These encompass online courses as well as classes taught in Melbourne and Sydney that cover everything from how to write travel stories to getting published in magazines to starting a chick lit novel. Having done a bunch of writing classes myself, I think courses are terrific if you are serious about wanting to write. They will get you seriously inspired, motivated and feeling positive about your ideas and your abilities like nothing else.
Thanks guys and mega thanks to everyone who has voted for me already - you House Nerd readers are awesome and six months on from my first post I still get a kick from every single like and comment. Which brings me to a bit of news, yesterday House Nerd got to a thousand likes on Facebook! I was like:
