BritMums has come on leaps and bounds from the early days and now it’s gathering pace with the second year of BritMums Live TOMORROW, plus a brand new foodie blogging conference BritMums Food in November. I remember when I first met the founders Susanna Scott and Jennifer Howze. I was in awe, thinking of them as [...]
Going to the BritMums Live conference last year changed everything for me. It solidified my blogging. I met people I had no idea existed, who wrote blogs I’d never heard of and with whom I have since become friends who I meet in ‘real life.’ In the beginning, there is a myth that there is [...]

I can vividly remember the first time I heard The Ballad of Lucy Jordan. This song/story of a suburban housewife was electrifying and its feminist message was part of a transformation at university from girl with vague ideas about gender politics to full-fledged feminist and politically engaged adult. That’s the power of protest songs: Sometimes [...]
BritMums were asked to review a copy of I don’t know why: Stories to help adopted children understand why they do the things they do by Annice Thomas and who better to ask than our very own in-house Adoption and Fostering Round-up editor Maryam Lane? Being an adoptive mother to three siblings, she has a [...]

The best thing about the sponsor lounges is that they are all [...]

I simply cannot believe that almost a year has passed since I excitedly swapped my wellies for more metropolitan attire and heading to London for Britmums Live, my very first blogging conference.
