Uplift is nominated for a Cosmo Blog Award!

What fantastic news to bring Uplift back from a mini-hiatus (I’ve been moving house!) – and a huge thank you goes out to all you lovely Uplift readers who nominated us!

Back when I attended the launch event for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards last month I was intrigued and excited; Since this is the first ever Cosmopolitan Blog Awards, ‘Aimed at celebrating the crème de la crème of the blogging community’, every blogger at the launch was entering into un-chartered territory. But, as Pat Mcnulty (Acting Web Editor at Cosmopolitan.co.uk) explained, Cosmo are simply hoping to tip their readers off about all “those ‘can’t-get-through-the day-without-clicking’ blogs”.

So, I am absolutely chuffed that Uplift has been nominated as one of the best News/Current Affairs blogs out there! And that’s not just a purely personal pleasure; I’m especially pleased that a publication such as Uplift (that mixes feminist analysis, women’s news and pop culture) has been tipped as a vital web-destination for women who may not otherwise have discovered it.

Thanks once again to all who nominated Uplift, to all those who spread the word about the awards, to Yasmin and Dearbhaile for their fantastic blogging work on Uplift and everyone who has contributed to the site!

You can VOTE FOR UPLIFT in the News category here up until Wednesday the 18th August – That’s not far off, so get your skates on and get voting!
