I am absolutely delighted to have won Best Blogger of the Year 2016 in the My Outdoors on-line and social media  awards.

Dave Mycroft, who runs My Outdoors, is a keen observer of the outdoors media on-line. If he believes that I am Blogger of the Year then I am very proud, chuffed, delighted and bowled over.

Dave runs is own great website, My Outdoors, and we have sometimes collaborated. Mostly we get on with our own thing and I admire his amazing work. Now, it seems, he has been admiring mine, too. Thanks Dave for recognising the hard work I put into my blog.

My Outdoors states:

The Winner of the Best Blog 2016 goes to Fiona Russell for Fiona Outdoors.
