Oh my goodness, I actually cannot believe it. I am hugely honoured and massively humbled to have made the shortlist for The 2018 Blog Awards Ireland! Best of luck to all candidates.
So here we are at the end of week 1 of the Social Media Blackout experiment. Honestly it has been so eye opening. I have not missed scrolling a fraction as much as I thought I would.
