For the past two years this blog, our B2B, business intelligence for hospitality site - where I hopefully Unleash the Insight - has been a finalist at the UK Blog Awards. Year one, in both the Food & Drink and Travel categories; year two up for the body's highest accolade, the Odeon Headline Award for Best Storyteller.
The mix of heavyweights we've been up against has been a who's who of tourism, hospitality and the wider blogosphere: Thomson, Teletext Holidays and WWF within the realms of our immediate peers and the Royal Mint who went on to claim the Best Storyteller crown (every pun intended) in 2016.
After two years of not quite clinching an award, to be shoulder to shoulder with household names over that time is more than enough praise, so this year we're swapping B2B for B2C and entering our travel site's Deets which Delight blog for the first time.
To proceed to the next stage I call upon the thousands of you that have read this blog since April 2014 to visit littletouches.com/blog and give it your once-over to decide if our reservation engine's top tips for tip-top seaside experiences are award worthy. If they are, please vote for us here, or by clicking the image at the top of the page. We're nominated in two categories - Events and Travel - so please give us your seal of approval in either or indeed both !
