Hi! I’m Alison. I’m a London-based magazine writer and editor – and a mum of one! I started Not Another Mummy Blog in 2011 and it has grown into an award-winning lifestyle blog with a solid engaged audience, covering family life, travel, style and interiors. In my career, I’ve worked on women’s magazines like More & Look, and now work as a freelance writer and editor on magazines like Grazia, OK! and Mother & Baby. I combine this with writing the blog and working on large brand campaigns. I also co-edit awesome family travel site Space In Your Case.

Not Another Mummy Blog has appeared in The Telegraph, Mail Online, Grazia magazine, Closer magazine, Mother & Baby magazine, Gurgle magazine and Alex & Alexa.
I’ve appeared on TV and radio, from being a guest on ITV1’s breakfast show Lorraine speaking about pressure mums feel at the school gates to ITV News, BBC Radio 1′s Sunday Surgery, local BBC radio and Sky Living.
I spoke on the keynote panel at Mumsnet Blogfest 2013, speaking about mothers, blogging and feminism. I’ve also spoken at a number of other blogging conferences including BlogCamp and Blogstock.
In 2011, I was on the judging panel of the Radio 1 Teen Awards, alongside Vernon Kay, Gemma Cairney and Pixie Lott. In 2015 & 2016, I was on the judging panel of the Junior Design Awards, alongside Rachel Stevens, Olivia Rubin, Kirsty McCabe and Susie Verrill.

I’m so honoured to have been shortlisted for, and the winner of some awards. I won the Best Blog Writer award at the 2011 Gurgle Blog Awards, run by top brand Mothercare. I’ve been chosen as Netmums’ Blog Of The Week three times and Mumsnet’s Blog Of The Day a number of times.
I was a finalist in the prestigious Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Awards 2014 & 2016, in the Writer category. In 2015, Space In Your Case won the Travel category at the same awards and was a finalist in 2016.
In 2015, Not Another Mummy Blog received an average of 65,000 page views a month and is currently in the top 0.2% of UK parenting blogs according to Tots100. I’ve got a combined Twitter following across two accounts (personal and blog) of over 12,000. Not Another Mummy Blog is, at the time of writing, ranked as No 11 in Teads’ Most Influential Lifestyle Blogs.
I regularly work with selected brands on sponsored posts and campaigns. See more details on my media kit. I work hard to incorporate a brand’s message or aim into a blog post that I think my readers will find interesting. All commercial posts will be flagged up as such and I hope my readers will enjoy those posts just as much as other posts.
I accept a limited number of reviews – I will always give an honest review of a product, service or trip and all reviews will be made clear. Email me if you would like to discuss a review. Any posts about products that don’t state the product was sent c/o the brand are organic posts and are written because I loves the product or brand.
Thank you for reading!
