NOMINATION CATEGORIES: INSPIRATIONAL MOTHER OF THE YEAR & EXCELLENCE IN MEDIA
Blogger and business woman Vicky, 38, from Lancashire, is no stranger to adversity that has challenged her over the years, but her positive attitude to life does not keep her down for long.
Having been in an abusive relationship in her teens and early twenties, losing both parents, going through divorce, losing a business and also faced with having two auto immune conditions (Crohns, Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Chronic Migraines and being an official small person at only 4ft10), Vicky uses her platform online to show that no matter what life throws at you, you can always find the funny side. Using humour and real life experiences, Vicky connects with her global audience across all platforms of social media and has grown her brand, The Motherhood, from what was once a MySpace page and live journal, to becoming an award nominated blog and marketing business.
Vicky, who home educates her 12 year old son, does so in a diverse way, using the blogging experiences and brand partnerships to turn every day goings on into educational challenges. It may come in the form of a travel opportunity or a product to play test – whatever it is, Vicky makes sure that there is an educational element in all of her work.
Passionate about charity work and giving back to those in need, Vicky works with a number of charities to provide social media advice and guidance free of charge, as well as gifting whatever blogging and marketing products she can to good causes over the festive season to help families and children in need. Vicky also provides marketing advice and guidance to other local businesses and uses her skills to network businesses throughout Lancashire and beyond.
The Motherhood is a multi platform social site, connected via the main blog, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and many other platforms, each reaching a different demographic. The Motherhood has view points from her son, her partner and even the family cats get a voice too-with their own Instagram and Facebook pages!
Vicky is currently writing her first novel about the hilarious side of online dating as a single mother with true story accounts of some of the best and worst dates she has experienced over the years.
We can not wait to celebrate this inspirational mother on the 30th of March 2019.
