Allergy Blog Of The Year – Sponsored by Asda Free From our headline sponsor

Allergy Blog Of The Year Award category is for the allergy blog that has gone above and beyond and has helped people with their advice and support in regards to allergies.
I've been nominated for the UK Blog Awards 2017

This is exactly why I blog. To share things I’ve learned, help others and raise awareness of what it’s like living with with allergies, eczema and asthma.

It can be lonely place but I want to help people see that having life threatening allergies should never stop them doing what they want to do.

It’s constant and never goes away but you CAN embrace challenges and live a healthy and positive life.

You just have to be VERY organised, plan ahead and ALWAYS go prepared.

A bit like an SAS spy, ready for that allergen to get you at every corner, never letting down your guard.

I also like to rant when I see injustice or unkindness shown to anyone with allergies, eczema or asthma. If you know something is wrong or dangerous don’t stand by and let it happen. Fight!

Thank you all those who stand and fight beside me. You know who you are. And thank you to all my readers over the five years I’ve been blogging. It’s been so much fun and I still have so many ideas for blogs so please keep reading…

Voting opens tomorrow, 1st October so please get voting 🙂

PS. The copywriter in me really wishes that ‘I’ve just been nominated’ banner said ‘an allergy blog’ not ‘a allergy blog’ but I am trying not to turn into grammar police as well as allergy ranter…



An allergy and health writer and freelance copywriter, Ruth is passionate about helping those with allergies and food intolerances take control, embrace their condition, and learn to live with and love who they are. It can be very lonely finding you have allergies and discovering what helps you can be a life long journey. What works for one person won't work for another, so after trying nearly every allergy treatment under the sun and finding hours of research necessary to keep abreast of what's going on, Ruth started writing her blog, What Allergy? in April 2009. Ruth has life threatening allergies herself to all nuts, all diary, tomatoes and celery and knows first-hand what it's like to have an anaphylactic attack. Voted in the Top 5 UK allergy blogs by Cision UK in 2011, What Allergy is packed full of interesting articles, hints and tips and product reviews which are a must read for anyone with allergies, food intolerances or sensitivities, asthma and eczema. From subjects such as "What is celery allergy?" to "Surviving a holiday abroad with allergies", it's packed with useful and interesting information.
