For the second consecutive year, Momondo is hosting the Bloggers Open World Awards, and I’m a candidate!
After my last year’s loss in the Best Blog category — the 10 bloggers most voted by the public went into the final, and I was 11th! —, I had decided that this year, I wouldn’t apply. After all, I asked for your vote for weeks on end, every day, over and over again, only to die on the beach. I said to my myself, “I’m never gonna run again! This kind of voting doesn’t make sense!”
Yes… today I die by the mouth. Like a fish… I’m a candidate again!
These contests are always a bit dubious, given the online polls where the quality of blogs is not taken into consideration, just the number of followers on social media and how much they are willing to work to muster the necessary votes.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not your fault! On the contrary, you are unstoppable, and I only have to thank you for your unconditional support. And that’s why I’m here again asking for your vote to reach the final.
Video Category of the Momondo Bloggers Open World Awards
This year I decided not to submit the blog to the contest, but the Youtube channel. It’s a platform on which I have dedicated some time and of which I am very proud.
In it you can find the videos of my trips around Portugal and the World, some vlogs — don’t get excited, as this is still a format that I have to develop better… —, videos about lodgings and a line of interviews that I’m passionate about: Passport!
During last year I have developed my skills in capturing and editing video images, and I believe that you can see it in the quality of the final product. It’s a slow but steady evolution. After all, I don’t have top-of-the-line cameras or drones, nor a crew working with me in filming and editing. It’s just me, myself and I, equipment that I’m slowly improving and a whole lot of willpower. This is why I’m genuinely proud!!
Having said that and believing that this may be an excellent way to promote Surfer Girl On The Move’s YouTube channel, I ask you to vote until next April 18th. Towards the final!!
Voting it’s effortless:

(Note: unlike last year, in this edition of the Momondo Bloggers Open World Awards, each email is worth a single vote.)
Being or not one of the 10 finalists, thank you in advance, from the bottom of the heart!! ❤
