I’m immensely proud to report that Savvy Londoner has been nominated for a “Best New Money Blog” award, as part of the 2019 UK Money Bloggers awards ceremony. Winners will be announced at the annual conference in September.
I started Savvy Londoner near the end of 2018, two+ years after moving to London. When writing posts, I try to find the balance between London newbies who need guidance on the basic stuff in this amazing city, and those who have lived here for a long time, but can still use tips on how to save money (and there are so many ways!).
Because I spend so much time on each individual post (that’s what happens when you insist on writing 2000+ words every time), there might not be as many posts as I had hoped yet – but I hope the ones that ARE here, are helpful and serve a real purpose. The fact that Savvy Londoner already gets a steady stream of traffic every day, means I’m doing something right.
And now, being nominated alongside such an impressive list of new blogs, is a real honour.
UK Money Bloggers is a community of independent bloggers and journalists who write about personal finance, money saving and everything in between. Each year, the group holds a conference and an awards ceremony (“The SHOMOs” – Show Me the Money awards), where the best money bloggers in a variety of categories are announced.
Judges from within the community shortlist six blogs in each category, and then a new panel of judges, made up of financial journalists, sponsors and fellow bloggers, pick the winners.
I’m also happy to report that my other blog, Cord Busters, has also been nominated for an award this year (for the second year in a row!), as a “Best Specialist Money Blog“. If you’re interested in TV cord cutting, and how to save money on your TV watching (and related tech) – go check it out.
