October Beauty Round-up: New products and body image

Rain, wind, low temperatures, a full blown autumn which means that it is even harder to keep ourselves beautiful. Most of us are also affected by colds and the snotty noses don’t help us at all. I love autumn but I hate the runny noses it brings. As we are searching for a bit of comfort I […]

Raising awareness of charities through blogging

It is great to see so many people raising awareness of charities through blogging. My absolutely favourite post this month is perhaps not surprising seeing as I am a Yorkshire lass with a liking for our regional pudding. To be serious, I know I take communication for granted with my children and suspect I am […]

Special Needs Round-up: Celebrating SEN uniqueness

Special Needs Bloggers Thank you to everyone who took part in last month’s SEN round-up linky. It’s always wonderful to browse through new blogs and old favourites, and to see the sheer diversity in the way we write.

The October Video Round-up: The one with no theme!

October’s theme is… there is no theme. I asked you to send me what you are proud of….. My proud moment this month came when I was asked by Whittard of Chelsea to provide some tips on time management for a campaign they were running to encourage people to let their tea brew properly. A […]

Dad’s Round-up: An autumnal mix

What do you get if you take a psychotherapist, two stay at home dads, one of whom likes to write about feminism and a dad that has a thing for laundry bleach? You get the dad bloggers that feature in this month’s round up, that’s what. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s a real autumnal mix. […]

Politics Round-up: A no, payment cards & MPs behaving sadly

I left you last month with a feeling that Scotland was going to vote Yes. This was purely based on the fact that in my little corner of the blogging world YES was the resounding theme. As you will all know, the answer given by Scotland to the question of independence was NO. I was […]

Newbie Tuesday roundup: New beginnings

September has been the month for starting school, and lots of you have packed your children off to a room full of strangers with mixed emotions.

travel round-up

Travel round-up: A time for contemplation

Collating this round-up each month is always enjoyable. I read about amazing places you’ve visited and good food you’ve eaten. I share your adventures and dream about sandy beaches and swish hotel rooms. But travel can often be a time of contemplation. We may visit a destination where we are faced with a country’s history […]

Teen and Tween Round-up: Anxious times

Quite without planning it, there seems to be a bit of theme with this month’s post – we’ve got an awful lot of anxious tweens. Is this a modern phenomenon, or has it always happened? What is it about the tween years that bring these things on? I have no answers, just some very moving […]

Positively Inspirational Round-Up

Summer has been long and very warm. Usually this time of year it is starting to feel a bit chilly as Autumn sets in, but not this year.  As I write this, I am sitting in my back garden, sun hat slanted to one side, sunglasses perched on top and the sun is beaming down […]

Arts & Culture Round-up: Museums, memories and more

This month’s round-up comes at an inbetween stage. It’s rainy old October. The weather’s often too grim to make the great outdoors seem inviting. But even though theatres and cinemas have begun to crank up their shows, there’s still not as much entertainment on offer as there is in the run-up to Christmas. So: what’s […]

How to follow and be followed via your blog’s sidebar

I love these WordPress.com widgets that enable you to follow and be followed, and suggest that every sidebar should have them installed. And this is important, because being sociable, friendly and forthcoming, not to mention being nosey, aware and complimentary, is what makes as blog thrive! So today I’m going to talk about how you can invite readers to subscribe […]
