ST60 & Beyond Nominated in the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards

April 7, 2018



I AM SO EXCITED to announce that Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond has been nominated in the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards – Category MOST INFORMATIVE (Original Content) BLOGGER.  The winners will be announced on May 19 at The Bash Event in London.


This is the first time I’ve been nominated and it is such a thrill to know that out of 400 nominees my blog has made the cut.  I feel so humbled and motivated at the same time.  To think that someone has nominated me and the blog is such a reward for the time and thought I put into writing for you all and providing inspiration and motivation to all Women Over 50.  Just being nominated is an honour!

I had no idea of my nomination and was watching the Commonwealth Games on TV when I received a message from my friend and fellow Aussie blogger, Debbie Harris from Deb’s World. Deb has also been nominated in the Hidden Gem Category. Deb’s daughter, also a blogger is nominated and both of them will be attending the Awards Ceremony in London all the way from Australia!

I also have several other blogging friends including Donna Connelly from Retirement Reflections who has been nominated in Best Overall Category.

What is the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards?

The FOURTH Annual Bloggers Bash Awards 2018 is now open for voting. (ABBAS) – well I love ABBA so this must be a sign!

The Bloggers Bash was created by Sacha Black and she has a very hard working committee to make it all happen.  The Bash is open to any blogger, regardless of age or niche and is an acknowledgement to all bloggers for the effort and love they put into their blogs. The event is held in London and has speakers, competitions, a panel, and attendees from all over the UK, Europe, the US, and Canada and this year my friend Debbie will be attending from Australia.

The 9 categories are:

A huge thank you to those on the organising committee and an even greater thank you and hug to the person who nominated me this is such a thrill.

I feel like I’ve been nominated for the Oscars or should that be the Pulitzer Prize or the Logies or Miles Franklin Award (if you are an Aussie you will know what that means LOL:). Of course, I’m not comparing myself with those prestigious awards but I just as excited for this nomination.

I am honoured for the nomination and to be in the company of some wonderful bloggers who I have admired for quite some time.


A huge thank you to all my readers for your continuing support and it is because of you that I continue with Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond and share my thoughts on life Over 50.
