Blog love…

I read a lot of blogs every day and when I say I read a lot, I mean a lot! I read at least eighty blog posts every week and there are a lot of seriously brilliant blogs out there. Reading blogs is a big part of being a blogger and probably what I spend most of my time doing, it’s lucky I love it.

This month I am going to share with you the blog posts that I have read and enjoyed for different reasons…

Let’s start with the fantastic Gemma over at Life is Knutts. This lady makes me laugh all the time, if you don’t follow her on Facebook, you need to. She cheers me up every day with her updates. But what really had me laughing last month was her brilliant Ironic Parody…honestly it will make you laugh out loud and you will be singing Ironic for the rest of the day

I never miss a post from the brilliant Eilidh who blogs at Mummy and Monkeys. But, a post that had me thinking just by the title was ‘A Letter to the Woman I Saw being Hit’. It was both a very brave thing to do in that split moment and a brave post to write.

When I started my blog I had no idea that I was also entering the blogging community, a community that I had no idea existed. I wrote last month about how lovely it is to be part of, but just like every part of life there is the unpleasant side. Feeling insecure about our own blog and dealing with trolls is just some of it.  When I read this brilliant post from Kate at Pouting in Heels about how to deal with the darker side of blogging, some of it shocked me and some of it I found myself nodding along to.

Being at home with my girls every day means that we spend a lot of time just the three of us. So, when I read this post from the fabulous Natalie at Plutonium Sox about Having The Confidence to Be Alone, I could really relate to it and definitely got me thinking.

If your looking for new blogs to read, you should definitely check these out…

    What a lovely post! It completely sums up the really positive side to blogging: genuinely supporting others. I’m a newbie and when I started I honestly had no idea about the community that is out there. Bloggers like you, who are highlighting posts and bloggers who have inspired you, made you laugh and perhaps made you cry, is such a great thing to do. Spreading the blog love really is an essential part of blogging and when it sounds so genuine, it is inspiring. I shall look forward to reading the blogs you mention. Thank you for sharing via #TheList Alison x

    It is so lovely of you to share other people’s work in this way. It makes me think I should do something similar. We all read so much of each others’ stuff, it’s lovely to give some back! #TheList

    I must say I do feel overwhelmed with how many fantastic parent bloggers there are. I do try to keep up with the posts, but there’s so many I want to follow. I do find comfort reading about others’ experiences that might be similar to my own. #BloggerClubUK
