I read a lot of blogs.
I think most bloggers do. We spend quite a bit of time reading what other bloggers have written.
Some posts I read as part of linkies that I join in with. Sometimes I read other people’s blogs as a way of showing my support and being active in the blogging community.
A lot of the time I read blogs just because I’m drawn to them. I see a post being shared on social media and the title intrigues me so I go and have a read.
I thought it would be nice to share some of the blog posts I’ve enjoyed, in case anyone is looking for something good to read!
So here is my list of blogs that I’ve loved this month:
Kiri from Kizzy, Izzy and Baby wrote this fab post about the loneliness a lot of women feel when they first become mothers. It can be so hard adjusting to this new role and we really can feel alone in it if we don’t have ‘mum friends’ yet.
What I really loved about Kiri’s post is her list of reasons why you should give mother and baby groups a go if you’re feeling lonely as a mum.
I was so nervous about going to baby groups, I put it off for months after Rhys was born. But I’m so, so happy that I did go in the end as I made some really good friends there who’ve seen me through a lot of tough, sleep-deprived times.
If you’re not a blogger then you might want to skip past this one. But I really loved seeing behind the scenes a bit and reading what things Donna from what the redhead said uses in her blogging life.
I find it really interesting to see what other people do, and how they work. It’s human nature to be a bit nosy isn’t it?! And I loved picking up a few tips like getting wifi memory cards to make life much easier when it comes to getting photos off my camera!
I love music, and the power it has to take you back to a really specific time or place. So I really enjoyed reading this post from Pen at the single swan.
The way she writes about the different songs and the memories that they bring back really does show how powerful music is.
For what it’s worth, the whole of Dido’s album ‘No angel’ takes me right back to my first year of University. And this mashup of ‘wake me up’ and ‘never gonna give you up’ will always remind me of the day Nerys was born, it was in my head the whole time!
I really loved this post by Prabs at absolutely prabulous. As the title suggests, it’s a list of things she wants her children to know and to think about as they grow up. Some of it is light hearted and funny. Some of it brought tears to my eyes.
But I loved every bit of it.
This is number 16 in a series of blog posts written by Alana from Burnished Chaos.
She has a notice board in her home where she puts a quote or saying each week for her family. This particular week their words were ‘go with the flow’ and I just really enjoyed the post Alana wrote around those words.
I do tend to believe that things happen for a reason, and that the best thing we can do is stop fighting against our circumstances and just go with the flow. Like, if you’re in a traffic jam. There’s nothing you can do to change the situation, but you can change your mindset about it. Getting stressed and angry about it won’t help anyone, so just go with it and make the best of it!
So there we have it. 5 blogs that I’ve really enjoyed reading this month.
