As bloggers, we have our fingers in several social media pies! The best advice I could give is that you don't need to be completely active on every single form of social media, it would be impossible and you wouldn't have much of a life.
How is it that time again? I feel I was only here sharing blogging tips a few weeks again but alas in the blink of an eye another month has gone and it's time to look through some more tips, tricks and hacks to help us all.
We travel a lot, and I know travelling with tots can be a challenge ( do you see how democratically I put that?! ) Ever since our first flight as a family of five (absolute disaster at the airport, it was pure sweat inducing stress!
This weekend we will all be packing our bags and heading to The Brewery to meet new friends and learn more about what we can do to achieve the best of our blogs. I know there is much hype around the event as there usually is and I can't wait to meet up with a few friends and most specifically my lovely pre and post natal group BlogBumpClub!
There are daffodils aplenty, the birds are singing and we're seeing buds appear on the trees. The days are longer, the yearned for blue skies bring a smile to our face and we shout "lambs" whenever we pass a field.
Do you know the movie 'Tail Wags the Dog' with Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman? It's about a media spin doctor (De Niro) who, days before an election, has to come up with a plan to distract the voting public from a presidential sex scandal.
Summer is definitely in the air, in blog land. Many bloggers have been getting down and dirty in their gardens (well sort of) and some of you have also been providing inspiration on what we can all do with our outdoor spaces.
We have some great blogs in this round-up that are adoption and fostering orientated. If you ever feel you want to read more blogs on this subject The Adoption Social run a weekly Friday link up called Weekly Adoption Shout Out which is also crammed full of great blog posts.
Last month marked Mental Health Awareness month so I decided to approach a few of my fellow bloggers and brave friends and raise awareness on this sensitive subject through their own words and stories. I will start with Abby, from Mother Under Measure, who a decade ago suffered a sexual assault about which she has courageously blogged on several occasions.
It’s time for the party inspiration round up again and I’m just so happy - the weather is perking up and encouraging more and more of us to step outside and enjoy outdoor celebrations! We were at the Royal Horticultural Spring Festival this weekend and it felt like the midst of Summer!
We all know that networking is super important to our business, but hey I'm all clued up with the excuses! I don't have time, I don't find it useful, I've too much work to do already why do I want to meet more people?
I don't know about you but our half term was a manic one and we spent the week making the most of the spring weather with lots of days out and about. One of our destinations for the week was the Warner Bros.
Negativity is one of those things we can never completely and totally bulletproof ourselves against. On the other hand, by choosing to make somewhat small but significant changes, we can all learn to efficiently and productively counteract its destructive effects from our lives.
This month we've had summer solstice, some sunshine, some rain, and Fathers' Day - which can be a tricky time for single parents. Still, we've a great round-up of posts for you this month which will hopefull make you think and make you smile.
It's life, but not as we know it. Let me start this month's round-up with the obligatory caveat that we love our children dearly, would walk to the ends of the earth for them, and wouldn't have things any other way.
Yay, the sun has finally come out to play (well almost) and many families are trying to get their gardens under control after the chaos our crazy British weather has caused. My own focus has been our veggie patch that was looking very sad indeed.
Welcome to the first ever Brit mum’s Homeschooling round up. I’m so excited to get started with this project and really look forward to collecting and sharing some fantastic blog posts from across the UK homeschooling community with you all.
Following on from my collection of responses to last month's breastfeeding media storm, Angie from Homeschool Mum Bum reflected on her eventful to uneventful breastfeeding journey. She charted her experience from her teenage mum days, to now as a busy and resourceful, single homeschooling mum of 5, who is tandem nursing her last 2 children.
I sit here writing this month's BritMums Education Round-up racked with nerves as right at moment my baby (ok, yes she is 7 but will always be my baby) is sitting in her school hall on the first day of her end of KS1 SATs testing week. A lot of has been said about testing this year, SATs have been a hot topic and I was inundated with great blog posts to feature in this month’s round up.
