I am very proud and honoured to announce that this little blog has snapped up the Best New Comer Award from the South African Travel Blog Awards.
Last year I moved my tiny blog from a more life style blog to a travel themed blog and I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made for my space on the internet. Yes, I still post lifestyle oriented things because as I have always said, I am an average traveler. I do average things and go average places.
But I try my best to turn the average into extraordinary stories. After all, it’s not what you’ve done, but how you tell the story afterwards.
I entered the Travel Blog Awards on a whim not giving it another thought after I hit send on my entry so you could imagine my surprise when I got a tweet saying I had won. Actually, I am still waiting for them to contact me telling me they made a mistake somewhere.
But that said, I am thrilled Greenlydia is being seen, after all why blog if you don’t want it to be read.
I would like the thank the organizers of the awards for a great and fair competition. I would like to thank all sponsors involved and a VERY big one for my prize that I can finally announce. Thanks to Virgin Atlantic your average traveler will be gracing the streets of London and getting up to all sorts of sports. I cannot wait to tell the stories, I know they will be great.
Thank YOU for reading my blog. For validating my writing with a page view or two and for coming back even after you realized I am actually a horrible writer.
