Christian New Media Awards


Hi friends!

Bit of good news this week, I’m a finalist in the Christian New Media Awards for this blog! 

Take a look at the list of finalists for some excellent blogs and other online content. I can’t honestly believe I’ve made this far given the quality of the other finalists’ work.


In the highly unlikely event we make it through to the winner/runner up stage I get to attend the awards ceremony which sounds like a blast.


To celebrate this I’ve launched a Facebook page for the blog, so please like the page and join the conversation!

Thanks again for reading, over 100 regular readers now which I ever expected when I started!


Much peace,
