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.
The Winner of the Best Blog 2016 goes to Fiona Russell for Fiona Outdoors.
Although primarily focused on Scotland and particularly female athletes in Scotland, Fiona provides a nearly non-stop stream of well-written and well-researched news and reviews that appeals to an audience far beyond the boundaries of Scotland.
