The ‘Royal Mumness’ 09-11-11


It’s that time of the week again when we get to see what all you Mummy Bloggers have been up to, and I for one can’t wait! The blogging world has gone crazy with debate this week, so I predict some fabulous reads.

What’s more, for getting involved in the Showcase this week, we have a lovely prize up for grabs! This gorgeous Ceramic Bird Decoration and set of six super cute Coloured Heart Buttons can be yours, courtesy of Dottery Pottery, maker of all thing bright and beautiful over on Folksy, where you can find beautiful hand-crafted items that you just absolutely neeeeeed! And they can be yours completely free! All you need to do is comment below – your name and twitter tag or facebook page (so we can find you should you win)!

We have been busy reading your posts this week and have seen some awesome blogs that we didn’t know before. We have tried to comment, and follow all of you on Facebook and Twitter, so have a check, and if you find we’re not following you yet, please leave a comment to let us know so we can rectify the situation at once!

And now it’s time to have a relaxing/inspiring/emotional/maddening (delete according to preference!) meander through each other’s lives. You see, it is all about personal preference; whatever your reason for blogging, or for engaging in other people’s blogs, you do it because you love it, or because you need to do it. And we are thrilled that you do. So let’s leave ‘Tickgate’ behind for now, and start some new debates on the posts featured here.

Next week we will be featuring some of the Memes out there that you may want to get involved in. There’s no better way to access a new readership and make new friends. And if you’re in the mood to share your birth stories (ouch!) get writing, because there will be a linky for you to join in with.

Remember, if you are a new Mummy blogger, you can also submit a post to Love New Blogs. Likewise if your thing is photos, cookery, or craft, you can double up your exposure by submitting to the relevant showcase as well as entering here – find all the links you need above!
