This is a first for this blog. It has been nominated in the Best Male Grooming category against some illustrious and well deserving gentlemen. I will be attending the event this coming Saturday evening and if my communication with the South African Beauty Blog Awards is anything to go by, it promises to be a memorable and fun filled event. I am in a catecory with ten other gentlemen who are diverse with a vested interest in blogging and menswear. This is also a unique opportunity to meet bloggers from across the spectrum who blog about anything and everything, and a chance to network and learn from everyone involved. There are nine categories and each category will be sponsored by a company that is associated with the SABBA. It's also good to know that there was a rigorous nomination and shortlisting process which considered design, content, author experience, and social media activity as the deciding factors. A panel comprising four judges will be on hand to select the category winners and this presents an opporunity to learn more about what makes a winning blog, not only for an award but a blog that appeals and resonates with a specific target audience.
So, I look forward to this coming Saturday and especially learning from this experience. I will most definitely feedback on the event in its entirety. I would also like to extend my gratitude to the individual(s) who nominated my blog for this award. I don't know who did it but I'm grateful to you and my sincere wish is that the Lord God Almighty bless you!
