I blog about our family lifestyle, arts and culture as well as product reviews. I write a large amount of theatre and day out reviews, which I absolutely love. Initially, it started off as an outlet for my thoughts on writing my first novel, The Moss Garden. After a year or so, it grew into […]

Mumble Mum

Mumble Mum

Pippa is a mum to two boys. And like most mums, she has to deal with the hard work of running a family. But being a mum is where the YouTuber gets most of her inspiration: “I cover all things parenting. The funny stuff, the boring stuff and everything in between! Having worked previously in […]

Twin Mummy and Daddy

Emily Higgins started blogging after the birth of her twin girls. “My husband and I had IVF and during this time, I kept an online diary of our journey on a fertility forum.

Laura Picture Positive

Picture The Positive was created when I was struggling with my mental health. I needed something to focus on, and writing has always been a hobby of mine, so I decided to set up a personal blog to spearhead my recovery, and the more I wrote, the better I felt! Social Media is a fantastic […]

Welsh Mummy Blogs

Charlotte Harding blogger

I initially started blogging as a way in which to record my son’s growing up. I wanted to record all the great places we go and fun things we do. After a while, I noticed that people started to follow the blog over social media and that the posts that received the most likes or […]

Why your blog is not getting many visits


Problem: You’ve spent the best part of your afternoon writing and editing your latest blog post. You nervously hit ‘Publish’ and sit back to await the crowds that are going to throng to your site to read it. You wait. And wait. And wait. Eventually, defeated, you log out of your blog and make a […]

How my blog got me a book deal


I’d like to tell you a short story about how my blog helped me get a book deal. Yes, that’s right – with a proper publisher and all that. The point of this post is to highlight the fact that anything can happen when you start blogging. Back in 2012, I set up a blog called […]
