I am very pleased to be taking part in the British Mummy Bloggers Comment Group and have been teamed up with an eclectic mix of fellow bloggers. It is lovely to get to know other blogs that I may have never discovered. Stepping out of your box and exploring new things opens up a whole world of possibilities!
Let me introduce you to my Comment Buddies!
The Real Supermum
I was already following Emma. A mum of six, I could relate to her experiences of having a big family. Emma is an inspirational woman who talks openly and honestly about her problems, giving strength and support to other women who find themselves vulnerable or in need of some friendly advice or understanding. She promotes self-help and discusses a huge range of parenting topics, getting in guest bloggers to cover a huge range of subjects. Reading her posts and her comments, Emma is a source of hope to mums who say that they wouldn't know what they would do without her group. Emma gets my respect in shed loads!
Craft and Nappies
I am a little in awe of the very creative and talented people who can knock up creations from thin air! Tartan Kiwi is no exception...Tea Towel Tuesday sees the humble tea towel being transformed into trousers, tote bags and peg bags. Very resourceful. Pictures of homemade cakes and biscuits also impress me! It's lovely to be able to connect with someone on the other side of the world in New Zealand. That is the magic of the internet.
Little Green Blog
I was already following this blog as I have an interest in green issues. I admire Mrs Green's commitment to making the world a better place. The Little Green Blog includes articles of health and wellbeing, green technology, mind and spirit and family and home. It is an online magazine and makes a lot of interesting and thought provoking points. It's great to dip into.
Life in the Preseli Hills
I adore this blog. The ups and downs of life on an organic small holding in Pembrokeshire are brought to life within these posts. The lambing season has more twists and turns than any soap opera...the tales of the ewes and their lambs are both heart warming and heartbreaking in equal measure. I am a vegetarian but I have massive respect for the farmers who run their farms with such integrity, commitment and love. The Preseli Hills' animals are obviously living a good life. It all sounds very idyllic to me and I'm enjoying the insight into this world!
Mummy Manda is a happily married mum to two lovely little ones. The blog includes a 30 day weightloss challenge which is always a topic I can relate to (...damn this last half a stone!!) Mummy Manda also does product reviews and giveaways and is a Maxi Cosi Noa tester. As a Graco Ambassador I'm looking forward to reading all about it!
Working London Mummy
An academic, a doctor and a proud mummy to a beautiful little girl, juggling being a mother with a having successful career in London and writing about the joys and challenges! WLM writes eloquently and given that her French husband is a talented cook, frequently talks about food! This blog opens up a world to me, that is far removed from my own life as a rural stay-at-home-mum, but we all have motherhood in common and can relate to tales of unconditional mother love.
This is the beauty of the Blogging world. We are a diverse bunch, all blogging for our own reasons, writing for different audiences and taking pride in our own personal corner of Cyberspace. We are all sharing a part of ourselves, sharing our beliefs, our highs, our lows, our hobbies, our family life and our experiences. We find ourselves in a unique position, where technology has allowed us to connect with each other on a scale that would have been unimaginable a few years ago. I for one, am loving the roller coaster ride of a journey that this blogging adventure has become. I feel proud, honoured and humbled to be a part of this community and I am thrilled to have met so many wonderful women!
