trespass-2016-winners-badge

I’m absolutely delighted to say that thanks to your votes of support, my blog has won the Camping category in the Trespass Blog Awards 2016 !

After being nominated back in December the shortlisted blogs were put to a public vote.  My blog was up against some really stiff competition and so I’m completely bowled over that Wild about Scotland came out on top.  It’s all thanks to you – and I really appreciate the fact that so many people took the time to cast their vote.

This is the second time Wild about Scotland has won the Camping category in the Trespass Blog Awards, also winning back in 2014.  I’m not a professional blogger, journalist or marketer – just passionate about my hobbies and not shy about telling everyone else about what I floats my boat !

Talking about floating boats … as the saying goes, there’s always something new under the sun.  Whether it’s camping out under the stars, climbing a new mountain, cycling a new route or learning to sea kayak (as I am right now), there’s always a new adventure around every corner.  So as I mentioned in my last post about my goals for 2017, my blog gets me motivated to get outside and try something new.

So if you find inspiration from my blog, please do let me know – it’s always great to receive this feedback.  Or if you have an idea for something you think I could blog about – or you have your own perspective to share – then also please get in touch.

In the meantime, Wild about Scotland has also been shortlisted in the GO Outdoors Blog Awards, one of five receiving the highest number of votes from a (very) long list of excellent blogs.  The public vote has now closed – and again, thank you if you took the time to vote for my blog.  The winners are being chosen by a panel of GO Outdoors staff on the 12th January … fingers crossed !
