Happy belated Pride to everyone, both near and far.
I know this is late for most people, as like in London, Pride celebrations would have taken place last weekend or possibly this weekend depending on where in the world you’re living.
For myself, Pride can sometimes be a bitter-sweet time as it usually falls around or on my birthday, but luckily this time London Pride fell on the weekend before my ‘big’ day.
I had a lovely day celebrating Pride with some friends, watching the parade (from what I could see past the taller people standing in front of me lol) and then drinking the afternoon/evening away at the usual bear bar in Soho.
But this year Pride has a special meaning for me…
That’s right… my own little blog-space has once again been listed as one of the Top 10 UK LGBT Blogs!!!
This listing comes via a marketing and communications provider called Vuelio. Along with their corporate work, they also maintain Top 10 Blog Lists that change weekly.
Vuelio is Europe’s leading provider of software for communications, public affairs and stakeholder engagement. Vuelio offers an unrivalled portfolio of products and services to serve the modern public relations and public affairs professional throughout the UK and Europe.
Here’s the full list:
- Pink Wedding Days
- The Guyliner (I actually follow this blog!!)
- Sarah + Laura
- Pink Therapy Blog
- Indefinite Adventure
- Ramblings of a Supposed Disease Free Mind (that’s’ ME!!)
- Yet Another T-Girl Blog
- Trade Blog
- THE LONDON UNICORN
As amazing as this is (and it’s pretty freakin’ amazing hahaha), this isn’t the first time this has happened…
Two years ago I was placed on this same list, when the blog listings were done via a company called Cision (see previous post HERE) and I was understandably gob-smacked this had happened.
To be honest, I hadn’t noticed the email notification or the Tweet (since I don’t go on Twitter that often). It had only come to my attention when someone had retweeted the posting and it popped up on my mobile notifications.
Admittedly, this all happened a couple weeks ago, just before Pride. I’d meant to post about it but between Pride itself and then my holiday in Rome, it kinda fell to the wayside. Oops.
It’s always amazing to get recognition from other bloggers, but to also get it from an outside source that I’d never submitted my blog to is very humbling. Especially when you take into consideration my sporadic postings over the past year. 😉
But whomever compiled the list clearly enjoyed what they had read, and for that I am extremely thankful.
And I’m thankful to all of you who regularly come by to have a read, leave a comment, share a post, or even just give a like to whatever you’ve been reading. It’s thanks to all of you that I’m still here and keep coming back regardless of whatever has been happening in my life.
So.. here’s to another year of my little humble blog (which will be turning 8 years old in the Autumn!!), and to all of you for sticking by me through it all.
