Am I The Best Blog Writer?


It’s not a trick question! Am I the best blog writer you know? Chances are, the answer is “Well, no and PS get over yourself” but some people have taken it upon themselves to nominate me for a MAD Blog Award… so many people did so, in fact, that it resulted in me being shortlisted for the award.

And I only bribed half of them with wine in order to receive votes (Joke! Seriously, if the MADs organisers are reading, I didn’t. It was gin.)

For any non-bloggers reading, the MAD (Mum And Dad) Blog Awards are a big deal – a bit like the Brits or the BAFTAs, where the blogging elite all gather at a posh ceremony, wearing their gladrags, to drink champagne and find out who has won each award. I’m genuinely amazed and very surprised to be in the shortlist. When you think that there are around 10,000 mummy/daddy/family blogs in the UK, it’s a bit mind-blowing to be named as one of the top 6 when it comes to writing.

But I need your help! Because the winner will be the blogger who gets the highest number of votes. Here are some of the posts that I’ve enjoyed writing – if you enjoyed any (or all!) of them, then please do head over to the MADs voting form and vote for me in the Best Writer category!

Phew! I’m a bit tired and in need of a cuppa, just looking at all of those posts. Voting is open until midnight on Friday 26th June 2015 and you can vote for me by heading over here. Thank you!

    Good luck Alison! It’s fab looking over your posts – I think I caught them all as they were published, and loved reading every one of them. I don’t think there’s many bloggers who write so brilliantly, who are so easy to relate to, and get the balance so spot on – giving us the hard and the serious along with the dreamy and the lighter stuff. With all the talk these days of ‘pro bloggers’, it’s so refreshing to read a blog by a writer with your experience, skill and insight. You’ve got my vote lovely xx
