"The Bupa Blog Awards experience was seamless, supportive and a joy to be part of. The night of the awards was surreal; everyone was so friendly and just being amongst bloggy greatness was a buzz. Winning two awards was beyond my dreams and it's a night I will always remember. For me the awards gave me self-belief and my business has exploded, giving me choices and a steady income. Bupa have been extremely supportive and the ongoing support has been invaluable, I now approach my blogging business in a much more professional and balanced way."
