The UK Money Bloggers awards return for their third successive year.
If you’re a money blogger, the SHOMOs are your chance to get some recognition. Most blogging awards put all money bloggers together – if they’re not lumped into a lifestyle category – but the SHOMOs give us a chance to celebrate our specialities, and showcase the breadth of topics we write about.
I’m delighted that Quidco has returned as the main sponsor for the awards, and we’ve already got Sainsbury’s Bank, Vanguard, FinCon and Lansons on board as individual award sponsors. A big thanks to all of them.
This year we’ve got even more awards. To nominate your blog, or one you love, click here.
