About

Hi Muddy Norfolk readers, I’m Amy, thanks for checking in!

I’ve been in love with Norfolk forever, having grown up in Salthouse as a child, but like many young journalists I ended up moving to London for work – I ended up writing and editing for Metro, The Sun on Sunday, The BBC, The Daily Mail, Yahoo, Time Out and many more. During that time I travelled the world (well, some of it) and had a lot of fun, before the siren call of Norfolk with its immense skies, awesome art shows, indie bakeries, vast beaches, chic market towns and bishy barnabees (if you know, you know) became too strong. Now I’m Muddy by profession, muddy by nature – and love nothing more than stomping across the saltmarshes (usually with my toddler in a rucksack, and ideally towards the pub). People who don’t ‘get’ Norfolk complain that it’s not on the way to anywhere – but to me that’s where the magic lies. It’s a wild, independent, , quirky, unique and creative county – and I’m here to guide you to the best bits. Come in and take a look around the site, and make sure you sign up for my emails so you’ll be the first to know about all the cool stuff happening in your area.

Ps. This is the Muddy Mantra, so you know what to expect from Muddy Norfolk:

  1. I try everything out myself so that you can fully trust my opinions. On the occasions that I haven’t been somewhere myself, I let you know that’s the case.
  2. I don’t write advertorial. This means I will never accept payment to write about something I don’t believe in.
  3. I accept tickets to free shows, festivals, restaurants, events etc with the purpose of reviewing or publicising them on Muddy Stilettos, as I’m sure you appreciate it’s pretty expensive zipping around trying stuff out all the time. Hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars – if you want me to try you out, please get in touch at amy.dawson@muddystilettos.co.uk and @muddynorfolk.
  4. I’ll never write a nasty review. I’m not into trashing people, brands or companies. But if you’re not good enough, I won’t write about you in Muddy Stilettos, regardless of whether I have paid for the experience or not. This gives me the editorial control I need and the trust that my readers demand.
  5. Muddy Stilettos is a commercial site and accepts advertising and payment to feature products and brands. However, we believe passionately in only working with brands that share our ethos and are relevant to our readers. We retain editorial control and independence at all times.

I hope you love the site. Please tell your friends about it and sign up for my splendiferous free posts delivered to your inbox to be the first to know about all the cool stuff happening in your area!
