Award-winning blogger

Blog posts

I’m an award-winning blogger. Actually, that’s wrong.  I’m a multi-award-winning blogger.

In 2012, I scooped the ‘Best Writing in a Blog’ Award at the 2012 Wales Blog Awards, organised by MediaWales and Warwick Emanuel PR.

My blog, about my father’s battle with cancer, was described by the judges as ‘moving and gripping’. It also drew much acclaim from my readers, calling it ‘a wonderful piece of work’ and ‘beautiful and brave’.

Since then, I went on to launch the cult spoof news website, WalesOnCraic, which picked up a Blogger of the Year Award at the Cardiff Regional Awards. The site had 1 million visitors within 7 months. I wrote about a book about it, that went on to become the #1 best seller on Kindle for three years.
