A Hitchin mum-of-three has been nominated for a family blogging award.

Lifestyle blogger Katy Flint is a finalist in the 2017 Brilliance in Blogging awards, in the Best Family Blog category.

Her blog ‘What Katy Said’ shares her everyday moments and adventures as a family of five, appealing to other mums and dads with young children.

Former teacher turned lifestyle blogger Katy took up online writing about pre-school matters for mums three years ago.

The main aim of her blog is to connect with others, and to share the ups and downs of parenting through her own experiences.

The creator and editor of What Katy Said told the Comet: “I am absolutely thrilled to have made it to the finals – to win it would be a dream come true.”

Thousands of votes were cast across 11 categories for the awards, which are organised by BritMums – a large and influential collective of lifestyle bloggers and social influencers.
