In one part of the world, people clear out their refrigerators every week, throwing out vegetables, meat, fish and more that they didn’t eat before the sell by date. In another part of the world, families fill their bellies with low-nutritive meals or go hungry. The food issues affecting the world are frequently in [...]
A few weeks ago, I attended a Save The Children Blogger Conference along with Ruth at Dorky Mum, Michelle at Mummy Rates It, Chloe at Cookie Jar Life, KellyAnn at Tea & Biscotti. Alongside lots of other bloggers who have been galvanised into action as a result of the conference, we wanted to do something [...]
What are bloggers doing to help charities and good causes? There are so many wonderful posts to choose from in the Charity Round-up. Let’s also highlight some rather fabulous charity blog hop/memes. These are a fantastic way to raise your profile and to make new blogging friends. They also provide ideas on those days where [...]
If it is possible to do good as a blogger, why wouldn’t you? Feedback on the new Charity Connections – Blogging It Forward group suggests that many parent bloggers want to get involved in helping good causes but don’t really know how to go about it. The truth is that there are probably as many [...]
When Nataliya, who blogs at Greenkiddie, gathered together sixteen other bloggers to create a collection of bedtime stories, they produced a lovely Christmas gift as well as an ideal way to contribute to Save the Children this holiday season. Same beginning, one line, many different stories. Seventeen UK parent bloggers took the challenge to ‘tell [...]

This Saturday, 17 September, it’s hosting a free blogging and vlogging conference in London, at which bloggers can learn new skills and meet some of the [...]
BritMumsBOW This week’s Blogger of the Week is a bit of an extension from last week’s glorious Christine Mosler of Thinly Spread. As we all know, Christine is, as I type, in Mozambique doing very important work for Save the Children and the #passiton campaign. We’ve also had some very important bloggers on the ground here in the UK who are so admirably working for and supporting the #passiton campaign.
BritMumsBOW At BritMums we love to recognise brilliance in blogging. We try to, every week, highlight a blogger who is lighting the blogosphere up with their writing. We want to share the love as much as possible to build a strong community. This week we need to galvanise the blogging community behind one very special blogger and the amazing campaign that she is promoting.
Thanks to the help of the mum blogging community, the #blogladesh campaign to press for change has reached more 10 million people on Twiter and been featured on Sky, BBC R4 Today, ITN News, and The Times, among others. Well done to everyone involved. Update: The #blogladesh update chat has been cancelled. Thanks to everyone [...]
