The Great Outdoors Magazine Awards 2014 were held in Kendall, nestled in the Lake District last week. Celebrating all that’s great in the outdoors world I was there hoping for a win in a new category – Best Outdoor Blogger.
I came third, and very pleased I was. Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for me.
I was on a high, pleased with the awards, excited to see people I don’t see very often and chew some outdoor fat. Then, something went disastrously wrong . . .
Siân Anna Lewis, and her blog – The Girl Outdoors, was the winner. From an initial high she has spent most of this week being the victim of some shocking social media harassment, aimed not just at her, but also her friends. It seems even Daniel Neilsen, the editor of the magazine, has also been attacked on social sources.
I’ll be posting my views this Saturday evening, along with a statement from Siân, and her side of the story.
