Overall Most Inspirational Blogger

This category was chosen differently. We combined the public vote, a private vote in the Facebook Group and then feedback from bloggers who help with the running of Muslimah Bloggers and support MB with graphics. 

The decision was almost unanimous and our overall Inspirational Blogger is Ruqayahs Bookshelf. This comment from one of our bloggers sums up the majority of feelings towards sister Ruqayah:

Her writing isn’t only inspirational but she has a unique perspective on life. She writes with emotions. She writes in a way that brings tears and hope in a same sentence. And most of all, She is so SO down to earth. Considering that she’s a single mother and has a business, she still manages to reply so nicely. May Allah put barakah in it for her.
