Dreams Really Do Come True – World Of Cruising Wave Awards 2019.

Firstinitialsea is up for nomination


Recently I have been asked by family, friends, fellow bloggers and a PR agency the familiar question of “Where do you see yourself in two years time?” My response is always the same as I try to have a clear vision of my heading.  One of those headings was the dream and possibility of winning an award for my writing, this dream became a reality last week!


Sitting in the the staff room as I usually do Monday to Friday at 12:10, I checked my phone, another usual practice for me, especially since I started up my own blogging website some 15/16 weeks back, no time at all really.  To my surprise, my dream became a reality.  Jumping up from the sofa, screeching loudly, sending shock waves throughout the entire Victorian school building, the realization hit. Staring at my phone screen, I read the same page over and over again.  Nominations for favorite cruise blogger 2019, there was my name – Claire Harris, Firstinitialsea  there in black and white, as clear as crystal, yet I still checked and checked again.  To this day, I continue to keep checking World of Cruising’s website to make sure I am still on that list among the other fantastic cruise bloggers.  Of course, my dream would not have been achievable if it wasn’t for you, my wonderful supporters. I cannot thank you enough.  My promise to you: I will always try my absolute best to deliver insightful and interesting content.



You may have read in my bio, welcome or about me page that I am a dreamer.  I always have been, I’m positive I always will be.  This post is living proof that dreams really do come true, especially if you work hard to achieve them.  As well as believing in dreams, I have faith in in the concept of hope.  My honest hope is that I make it to the shortlist in September.  Although just to be a nominee is a huge deal to me and for that I am grateful.  As with all of the other wonderful nominees in the category, I do have Instagram and Twitter, however I do not have Facebook or Youtube.  Therefore, I ask for your help.  If you genuinely enjoy my blog posts, I ask that you please vote for me.

This is where your dreams could also become a reality.  Every voter is automatically placed in to a draw to win a dream holiday for 2, courtesy of World of Cruising Wave Awards.  The voting only takes a minute of your time.
