Local resident in final of blogging competition
A mum-to-be from Ealing Common is celebrating after reaching the finals of a national awards programme to find the UK’s best Parent blogs.
Cathy Winston’s blog, www.mummytravels.com, is one of just five in the best family travel category of the MAD Blog Awards (http://www.the-mads.com) beating more than 2,000 other blogs nominated in the awards.
Cathy said: “I started writing a blog when I became pregnant, and everyone told me it meant I would have to stop travelling – my first baby is due in July, and I wanted to test out whether motherhood really meant giving up one of the things I love, and share some of my tips and experiences.
'' It’s wonderful to know that people enjoy reading what I write, and I’m really excited to have reached the finals of the awards, especially as the blog is so new.”
Blog readers around the UK are now invited to vote for their favourite blogs at the MAD Blog Awards website, and the winners will be announced at a gala awards ceremony in London in September, sponsored by Parentdish.co.uk (http://www.parentdish.co.uk).
“Parent blogging is such an exciting phenomenon, providing parents up and down the country with an opportunity to support one another online, be creative, and make some extra money, and there are some truly brilliant blogs in this community. We were absolutely thrilled by the quality of the blogs entered into the awards this year, and are really excited to see what happens next,” said Sally Whittle, founder of the MAD Blog Awards.
Tamsin Kelly, editor of Parentdish.co.uk, added: “The MAD Blog Awards are the biggest and most exciting awards for bloggers in the UK, and we believe parents are leading the way in the blogging revolution. We are so proud to be associated with an event that celebrates the amazing diversity and quality of blogs being created by Mums and Dads across the country.”
