Finalist in this year’s Blog Awards

Well guys I made it! The Tiny Vegan Kitchen has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Irish Blog Awards, sponsored by Littlewoods Ireland. I cannot tell you how delighted it makes me feel to have my  blog, that just turned one last week, recognised amongst so many other amazing blogs. It truly is an honour.

Unfortunately my delight has been shortlived and I will not be attending the awards next week. It’s been a year that has seen a lot of bad publicity surrounding circuses in Ireland and a nationwide campaign conducted by the ISPCA (The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to end the use of wild animals in circuses in this country. You can read more about that here. The use of animals in a circus is a controversial one for many people. Despite the fact that no animals will be performing on the night, I feel it would go against my fundamental ethical beliefs on how animals should be treated if I were to attend. I also believe that if I were to buy a ticket for such a controversial venue, I would be directly contributing to the circus and justifying the use of animals for our entertainment.

I am utterly disappointed that I will not be attending the awards on September 15th but I most certainly look forward to next year and I hope that I am just as successful.

I wish to thank you all for taking the time out to vote for me, I really appreciate your love and support.

Love back to you all,

Tanya xx

 

 

 

The Littlewoods Ireland Blog Awards 2016

It’s only three days short of one solid year since I made my first blog post on The Tiny Vegan Kitchen. What a year it’s been. So much has happened, I’ve learned so much and I’ve grown so much. I’ve become very proud of my little blog that I write as a hobby and I’ve been overwhelmed by the recognition it’s gotten over the last twelve months. I never could have imagined that in this short time my Blog would be shortlisted for the Irish Blog Awards. I received confirmation last evening and the voting went live this morning. This is such an honour for me and I’m overjoyed.

I’d like to thank you all for following my blog and my Facebook and the support you’ve given me, you’ve inspired me so much. This stage of the competition is made up of 20% public voting and 80% of votes come from a panel of judges. I would really appreciate it if you could throw me a vote.
