This totally made my week… The lovely guys & gals at Xcellent Media voted me (yes, little ol’ me) as one of their Top 10 Female bloggers in SA! ** blushing BIG TIME **
Xcellent Media is an internet marketing company which was started back in 2009 and specialises in things like SEO (Search Engine Optimisation for those who hate acronyms), web design & development, hosting, copywriting and social media marketing.
They asked each of us 10 ladies to tell them a bit about how we got into blogging and then also asked us to give potential new bloggers some advice. I was like “What? Me? Giving advice? Now that could be very very dangerous…”
I had no clue who the other 9 bloggers were until the post was published on Friday afternoon. And geeze was I surprised! Some of the people on there are from big name blogs which I follow religiously. Like Kim Gray for all the beautiful things my retail-therapy-addicted heart yearns for… and Hurricane Vanessa for my solid daily dose of wicked humour and general silliness.
I’ve now also discovered some new blogs that I didn’t know about, but will for damn sure be checking out from now on. They sound amazing.
All ‘n all I just feel very lucky & honoured to have received a mention amongst a list of such inspirational women. It has certainly given me a bit of oomph to keep this train a movin’.

A huge thanks to Xcellent Media for this little ego boost. I will try my best to not let this go to my head… causing me to spiral into a crazy diva who doesn’t allow people to look me directly in the eye, asks people to always whisper around me as noise hurts my delicate ears and demands goodie bags filled with only the blue Smarties (which someone would obviously need to manually sort out for me). Hehehe…
