This is the first post on my new blog and I’m quickly learning that blogging is a very personal expression. I followed the recent Design Democracy Blog Awards hosted by My Deco and was actually asked to be a part of the judging panel which picked ‘Best Interior Design Dlog in Great Britain’… what an honour and a challenge! Over 7500 people cast their votes for their favourite commercial, independent and newcomer blogs with the prizes being awarded to Puff & Flock, We Heart and Arianna Interiors respectively.
I really enjoy looking at the nominated blogs but judging them for merit was another thing completely because each one was so unique and clearly the voice and vision of the blogger. Lobster and Swan, PopArtRockGirlYeah! and Confessions of a Design Geek were on our short list and ultimately Confessions of a Design Geek was awarded the prize for Best Interior Design Blog in Great Britain.
This is a wonderful example of how blogging should be, Katie is clearly passionate about her subject and her posts show real enthusiasm.
She offers an interesting mix of architecture, interiors and creative resources and her blog really is a great read. A look at my blog list shows that I love looking at a variety of blogs, design and otherwise, on the web and each one presents a distinct point of view which is ultimately really personal as they are talking about the things they are most passionate about. I hope that my blog will come to sit comfortably among them and become a place where I can share my thoughts, inspiration, insights and tips which help to inspire others just as the amazing blogs I follow inspire me.
