It feels like it was only recently that we were talking about last year’s Wego Health Awards, but alas it’s here again – The Wego Health Awards 2021!
I’m very honoured that InvisiblyMe has been nominated in a few categories already, so I’d like to say a huge thank you to those nominating and endorsing me and other bloggers in this niche!
The Wego Health Awards 2021
Wego Health have been running awards since 2011. This will be the 10th annual awards this year ???? Wego is a massive worldwide, health-related platform and their awards are a fantastic way to connect people, share new content and acknowledge the work patient leaders are doing.
Nominations are open between 1st July to 31st July. You can nominate here. This means you can select a person you think deserves a particular award(s), and there are a few to choose from.
You can also endorse patient leaders, basically giving them a thumbs up for any award they’ve been nominated for. Each thumbs up endorsement counts, and it’ll show your support for that person and make their day.
A Blogging Journey
I never thought I’d last longer than maybe 3 months when I started this blog, so to still be running InvisiblyMe now is mind-boggling. It hasn’t been easy with chronic illness and pain that wears you down and leaves you so little time on any given day to even get the basics done, but the blog has given me some purpose and a sense of achievement. It has connected me to the world and kept me going even when my world got smaller and I lost so much.
I’m still not a big blogger with endless followers, but I do have a robust, reliable following and some awesome online friends as a result.
The chronic illness & pain community is absolutely amazing, and I hope others who sadly find themselves walking a similar path with their health in future will be able to find the warm community as I have.
What do I want to achieve with InvisiblyMe? I’d hoped to share some of my experiences, raise awareness of key issues, provide a little advice, encourage a community vibe, and spark a little inspiration.
I don’t know whether I’ve been successful with any of these. But I do know that it has been, and continues to be, a colourful journey. I try to support other bloggers as much as I can but I always find myself frustrated that I can’t do more because I wish I could. I’m so far behind all the time these days with being poorly but I try my best, and it’s a privilege to have this blog and be a part of this community.
Thank you to all who read, lurk, comment and share. Thank you to the support and friendship. I’m always open to ideas and suggestions for InvisiblyMe, and I’m just an email away if anyone needs someone to talk to.

Want To Endorse InvisiblyMe?
I hate writing these posts because I’m incredibly uncomfortable with the idea of asking for nominations or endorsements. But I also can’t not write this post, because I don’t want to ignore the fact that I’ve been nominated, which is super cool beans.
So, if you’d like to nominate me for a new award or endorse me for current awards (you don’t have to, so if you hate my guts then feel free to ignore this part) then you can do so here. To endorse, just click the thumbs up next to the award and complete the steps shown on screen :

To old & new readers: Thank you, you rock!
