The MAD Blog Awards 2016


So, as a blogger (if I can call myself one of those) you type away at your computer and then you hit publish. Once I’ve hit that button, I hope that what I’ve just written makes someone smile, makes someone laugh, has someone nodding in agreement, or just makes someone think, “goodness me, I’m glad my life isn’t as crap as that”…

I began writing Life is Knutts because I was encouraged to by family and friends (mostly because they were probably fed up with me writing my rambles on their Facebook feeds…) who told me I have a talent for writing.

I came up with the blog name because our surname is Nuttall. My other half and me played hockey and his nickname throughout his hockey years was, Knutts, because one of his mates misspelt his tour shirt one year and it said Knuttall instead of Nuttall. And so with a bit of imagination (and a spelling error cock up by a friend) Life is Knutts was born.

I’ve never thought of myself as having a talent for anything really (actually, thinking about it, maybe apart from Gin drinking…) and I was flattered that folks thought I was alright at something.

A year later…and here I am. I would say I’ve only been taking it ‘seriously’ (the blog, not my life) since Septmeber 2015 and I’m still learning a lot about how it all works (basically, I’m winging it, much like I am parenting…)

The MAD Blog awards run by Tots100 (they rank bloggers in a chart each month, I’ve never been very highly ranked – 1200ish out of 8500 I think – but I view that as being ‘undiscovered’ rather than crap…) are held every year and the best blogs are recognised and nominated in each of their categories.

I’d be super chuffed if any of you guys that read my inane chatter fancied spending 2 minutes nominating me in the ‘best newcomer’ category using the link below…

Nominate me for best new blog!
You will just need to fill in a short form by, first, adding your email address and then, by choosing a blog of the year, so your favourite one of all time…

My recommendations would be either:

  1. Eeh Bah Mum –
  2. Hurrah for Gin –

and then go onto step 2 where you can enter my blog URL at the bottom for best newcomer which is,

In the spirit things, I’d like to mention some other newbie bloggers you may want to nominate instead of me, the links to their blogs can be found here…


R is for Hoppit
Hot Pink Wellingtons

Side street Style
Thanks to you all for reading, liking, commenting and listening to me talk utter crap. I think you’re all wonderful and if you feel like sharing the love (ok, by that I mean my blog) with your friends then please do!

Because we are all a little Knutts really….
