Faces of West Wirral: The celebrity bloggers

By Emma Gunby at

West Wirral is quickly establishing itself as a “blogosphere” hotspot with a host of celebrity bloggers and vloggers (video bloggers, for the uninitiated) making their homes here.

Blogging on subjects from travel to toddlers, grief to vintage fashions, our local bloggers have every topic covered.

In no particular order, here are some of our favourites.
