Sally Whittle, founder of the MAD Blog Awards and a parent blogger at Who’s the Mummy, said:
“These bloggers have been chosen by the public as the best mummy and daddy bloggers in their field and I am already excited to see the results at the awards ceremony in September. Although being a parent is a great blessing, it can, at times, prove to be a challenge and as a result many parents seek a sense of support and guidance from these blogs.”
“The support, humour and friendships that these bloggers so freely offer are what landed them in the final. This is the second annual MAD blogs awards and I am confident that it will be an awards ceremony that continues to grow in popularity.”
