MummyPages.ie, Ireland’s biggest online community of mums, is delighted to announce that TodayFM radio DJ Alison Curtis will join the parenting site to share her down-to-earth and touching insights into her journey as mum of one.
lebrity mum, Alison Curtis is a well-known radio personality and mum to her three year old daughter Joan. Alison currently presents The Saturday Breakfast Show on TodayFM and this new collaboration will see Alison bring her own unique perspective on life as a mum to the MummyPages community through her regular blog posts.
Sadly, Alison’s own mother passed away when she was young and in her first blog post, Alison talks about her journey into motherhood without her, which is sure to strike a chord with many of the MummyPages mums.
The announcement of this exciting partnership between MummyPages.ie – Ireland’s biggest online community of mums which attracts over 600,000 mums monthly, and Alison Curtis, one of Ireland’s best known radio personalities is the perfect fit with their shared honest and fresh approach to modern day parenting. MummyPages.ie engages with mums on everything from pre-pregnancy, to parenting and family life.
Commenting on her new blog with MummyPages.ie, Alison Curtis said: “I am thrilled with this new opportunity to share my take on some of the everyday experiences I encounter as a mum, through my new blog with MummyPages.ie. As a native of Canada and with the passing of my own mother when I was young, I am all too aware of how important it is to have a good network of support from family and friends – online and offline! I’ve often leaned on the MummyPages community for advice on everything from toilet training to toddler tooth brushing.”
“My blog posts will be all about my ups and downs as I try to be the best mum I can be, which as we all know requires experience, endless patience, being able to learn from your mistakes and to laugh at the mayhem.”
Commenting on the announcement, Laura Haugh, Mum-in-Residence for MummyPages said:
“We are delighted that Alison has joined our MummyPages blogger community, putting aside her headphones to collect some of her thoughts on parenting. Alison’s first blog post is especially touching and a lovely tribute to her own mum.”
“Everyone who listens to Alison’s popular Saturday morning show on TodayFM will know that Alison already has a great rapport with mums. She can easily relate to the concerns of modern day mums and is very much aware of the issues affecting families in Ireland.”
Radio veteran Alison, originally from Canada, made her Irish radio début in 1999, when she first started broadcasting on the pirate radio station Phantom FM, while at the same time working as a senior researcher on the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show. Alison quickly moved from researching Ian’s show to producing it, where she remained for nine years! During that time the show, with a little help from a man named Mario Rosenstock and Gift Grub, became the biggest Breakfast Show in the country.
Furthermore, Alison was awarded four Meteor Award Nominations for Best DJ presenting the Last Splash on Sunday nights, one of the longest running shows on the station. Alison became a full-time presenter for TodayFM in 2008, she presented The Early Morning Breakfast show before going on Maternity leave and returned to present Saturday Breakfast.
