Post-40 Bloggers Round-up: If you read only one post…

Post40 bloggers round-upIt occurs to me that I didn’t have that much time to play with before I took up the busy hobby of blogging. And in the days when I tried to reply to every blog comment, be active on all social media platforms, AND try and read the posts from the 100+ blogs I followed, there was actually less and less time for writing.

I know many of us are still on this exhausting treadmill, so it is no wonder that “no-one has time to read blog posts” anymore. Except I don’t think that’s true. I think people don’t have time to read mediocre or bland blog posts any more.

With that in mind, I am going to stick my neck out and use our 4th Friday in the month BritMums round-up to look back and actually herald one post I think is well worth anyone’s time and attention. Yes, it is a near impossible task to pick just one post from the embarrassment of talent we feature on Post-40 Bloggers (thank you for asking), but I’m going to try.

On this occasion, the post I hope you didn’t miss from us was the one entitled ‘The Face In The Mirror’ by Alison Hurford. In response to our writing prompt No. 48, ‘Sit in front of a mirror and write about your face,’ Alison produced a poignant, raw and authentic piece of writing. You will be moved.

Alison, describes herself as a dizzy blonde, rubbish wife, have-a-go cyclist, chaotic cook…oh and Welsh Ambassador to Wokingham. She can be found:

See you next month with another impossible pick from talented bloggers and writers aged 40+. And do join us if you would like a chance to have your blog or work regularly read for features on the Post-40 Bloggers’ content-rich website. Who knows, it might be your post filling this coveted BritMums spot next month!

Until then, my best.
