Work With Me

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 teen mags like Bliss, women’s magazines like More & Look, and now work as a freelance writer and editor on magazines including Red, Grazia, OK! and Gurgle. I combine this with writing the blog and working on  brand campaigns across the blog and social media.

In 2017, I launched Not Another Mummy Podcast which shot to the top of the iTunes Kids & Family chart and receives up to 9000 listeners every week. Each episode covers a different parenting topic, with guests ranging from influencers like Clemmie Hooper and Louise Pentland to celebrities like Emma Bunton and Katy Hill.

Advertising

I regularly work with selected brands on sponsored posts and campaigns that fit with my lifestyle and core values. 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 with original photography. All commercial posts will be clearly flagged up as such and I hope my readers will enjoy those posts just as much as other posts. Affiliate links are used throughout the blog, but only when mentioning a product that I genuinely love.

Any posts about products that don’t state the product was sent c/o the brand are organic posts and are written because I love the product or brand.

If you’re interested in working together on some content or sponsoring an episode of Not Another Mummy Podcast, get in touch.

Thank you for reading!

    Hi Alison,

    A long shot. My best mate and just started a new business and I am trying to help her promote it and partner with people that fit into her brand and concept.

    Shelley (my mate) just had her third baby, she works full time and has suffered dreadfully during her pregnancies with a weak pelvic floor. This includes always carrying a spare pair of knickers in her handbag (which made me giggle) for those extra big sneezes.

    Anyway with the backing of her hubby they decided they wanted to open the market to pelvic floor products to help others in a similar situation. This turned into something more and now they sell a few adult toys as well! My point is we are trying to break the market and need some backing from influential individuals in the media. I am aware this is effectively cold calling but I don’t know where else to start…..

    More than happy to send you some products, what do you think? Please say yes!

    Thanks in advance.

    Johanna Mayhead
