Last week, an incredible, exciting thing happened. You may remember that Fitness On Toast had been nominated for ‘Best Lifestyle Blog’ in the 2014 Cosmopolitan Blog Awards, and for the past few months, I’ve eagerly awaited the verdict. The venue for the sophisticated blogging soiree was at London’s iconic OXO tower; an awards ceremony with the chance to chat to hundreds of like-minded bloggers over a Cosmopolitan or two! This year there were over 46,000 entries, 37,000 votes, and the standard of competition was hyper-rarefied! Just having been short-listed amidst an exceptional group of Lifestyle bloggers was immeasurably flattering…
…but I’m utterly ecstatic to report that Cosmopolitan’s Editor-in- Chief, Louise Court and Digital Editor Kate Lucy called out Fitness On Toast as the ‘Best Lifestyle Blog’ at the awards. Mild shock followed light disbelief, but was immediately overcome by a tidal wave of sheer joy! Having won has this award completely exceeded my wildest hopes for the blog, and I feel very grateful to every single one of my readers who took the time to cast a vote; even to those who didn’t vote, but continue to read my musings! Huge thanks to the Cosmo team for this recognition and for staging this wonderful event! In 18 months, Fitness On Toast has become more than just a platform to share fitness thoughts with clients; It’s a genuine reflection of me, and sharing it with you all makes me happier than you can imagine.
Thank you with all my heart 🙂
