Great news: Muddy a finalist in UK Blog Awards!
Hi Mudsters, I’m really excited to announce that Muddy Stilettos has made the finals in the UK Blog Awards 2017! We’re in the Best Art & Culture in the UK category, alongside giants like The Bodleian Library in Oxford and English Heritage, so it’s a bit of a David and Goliath moment for us but we are practising our slingshot!
Muddy Stilettos first tottered into the world in summer 2011 as a bit of fun for the founder, Hero Brown. The idea was a simple one: to write a witty but indispensable local guide to the very best restaurants, walks, boutiques, day trips, hotels, interiors and events (whilst also perking up her social life). So as you can imagine, when the chance arose to be editor of the Somerset edition, I almost bit her hand off! I’ve never regretted it.
How could we have known, after a brilliant first year of celebrating all things Somerset that the Muddy Stilettos brand would be in contention for such a prestigious award?
We constantly try to innovate on Muddy, which is why we have just started a Jobs site for our readers on Bucks/Oxon that will roll out to all the other regions in late 2017. In January, we’re launching a further six Muddy Stilettos county blogs, and all 17 blogs will be linked by a groundbreaking app by the end of the year if we don’t collapse in a heap first (*thud*).
We’re really glad that you’ve been on the journey with us so far, and there’s so much to see and do in Somerset. Thank you for helping us get this far. Mmmmmwwwwwaaa!
