100 Outstanding UK Parent Bloggers

MAD Blog Awards News 8 Comments

As you may know, this year the MAD Blog Awards will be giving out awards to bloggers in 15 categories, recognising brilliant blogs about everything from food and fashion to photography.

But in 2013 we also have a very special award, designed to recognise the bloggers who give most to our community, and make blogging such a fun world to be part of – the Outstanding Contribution award. 

These are the bloggers who offer their time and advice to new bloggers, helping them find their feet and solve technical issues. They’re the men and women who campaign about issues and charities, bringing them to our attention, and helping us understand how much our voices really can make a difference in the world.

They’re the bloggers who are quick to offer support and understanding rather than judgement and criticism. Perhaps they’ve helped raise the profile of parents, and parent blogging. They might have organised an amazing event, or inspired you to take on a new challenge.

Whoever they are, we’re thankful they are a part of our community and we salute you all.

If you haven’t yet nominated your own outstanding bloggers, we invite you to tell us about up to THREE Mum and Dad bloggers who you feel make an outstanding contribution to the community, using our ‘nomination’ form – you’ve got until next week to share your nominations with us. Our judges will look at all the nominations, and select just ten finalists who will be invited to join us at the 2013 MAD Blog Awards. And one lucky winner will receive a fantastic family break, courtesy of Best Western Hotels.

In the meantime, here are the wonderful bloggers who have been nominated so far:

    This looks great. What about a dad bloggers category?

      We believe there are categories there to suit every sort of parent blog. We usually have a number of dad bloggers nominated, some go through to our finals, in lots of different categories and a couple won last year. But thanks for the feedback, we’ll certainly take it on board next year.
