I’ve been umming and arghing about writing this post, but having been convinced by my family(Ta, family) that it’s not boasting and combined with the realisation that I do owe a very large BIG THANK YOU, to those who took the time to confront the labyrinth that was the BBAW registration and nomination form and vote for me. End result is I’ve been nominated in two of the niche categories - Best Poetry Blog and Best Eclectic Book Blog, which humbled and yet made me really proud that my fellow bloggers and Bookfiends liked what I do here at The Parrish Lantern. This has left me with an interesting dilemma. It seems you can only go forward in one niche category and after much consideration, a lot of pacing back and forth I have decided to choose - Best Eclectic Book Blog, on the grounds that although I feature poetry on the blog, there is not yet enough to fulfil the criteria of five separate posts (which must include book reviews), so best eclectic it is, and these are the posts I’ve chosen.
Hope you agree with what I’ve chosen, as it’s your input that inspires me, whether this is through book suggestions, poems, links etc. or in my attempts to improve The Parrish Lantern. So this is a big..
