It’s Awards Season and you’re all invited.
ODEON Cinemas are really excited to be headline sponsors for UK Blog Awards for the second year running. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to continue to get to know the blogging community, what makes you tick, what inspires you; and as part of our headline award, Content of the Year; identify creative talent.
With so much health information flying around these days, the path to wellbeing can be confusing to say the least. Public health guidelines from the NHS and government bodies are so generalised that they rarely seem to apply to individuals - or at least to us personally. We're inundated with sales pitches masquerading as health advice from brands - whether they are selling toothpaste, fruit juice, cosmetic surgery or even financial services, every brand seems to want to tell us what is good for us.
With any new year, it welcomes the prospect of growth, change and development for many. We are excited to see what 2017 will bring for our community and how influencers will develop their content further in 2017, as well as experience further changes that will happen acrosss the blogosphere in 2017.
To experience growth, it is important to reach out to others and gain knowledge from peers experiences. During this week's #BlogHour, our community have come together to gain further insight into how they can grow their content over the course of the year.
The Public Vote ended yesterday for our UK Blog Awards 2017 candidates and with 96,000 votes received, which illustrates the support of the social media talent entered into the process.
