The Britmums Live of Years Gone By

In 2013 I decided to start taking blogging seriously. I wrote every day, I was constantly on social media and I spent every evening reading and commenting on blogs. I threw myself as much into the blogging community as I possibly could and it felt like I had found my place in life. I finally felt like I belonged. The following year I found myself shortlisted for the Britmums Brilliance…

What sort of Digital Imprint are we leaving for our …

As a blogger I am really aware of having our whole lives online. I always have our family security at the back of my mind, not wanting to give away too much. I have always seen this blog, foremost, as a place to record memories and milestones, to really document the children growing up. But, unlike a photo album, or reminiscing with relatives this blog is out there for the…

Introducing blogfoster UK – A New Way to Match Brands with …

As a blogger I am always looking for new brands to work with, new ways to work with brands and any opportunities to collaborate. But more than that I like to share opportunities and share the places to look for work so that all bloggers get as much opportunity as possible to earn money and grow their own space online. I have written about blogger networks a lot in the…
