A BARRY blogger has scooped a top award at the Wales Blog Awards.

21 year-old Alice Morgan picked up her award Best Writing on a Blog at Chapter Arts Centre in May, where awards were handed out to the creators and writers of the best blogs in Wales.

Alice said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to win this award. My blog started life as a hobby and it’s great to know that it’s been recognised by the judges.”

She has just finished her final year at Royal Holloway University, London and her Best Writing on a Blog award is the same prize that her eldest brother won at the Wales Blog Awards in 2012. Judges were unaware of their sibling link until after the awards were announced.

Warwick Emanuel PR set up the Wales Blog Awards in 2010.

The company sees the event as a way to support and encourage everyone who wants to write and publish online the things about which they feel passionate.
