Since starting this blog we have discovered that there are a lot more parent bloggers than we ever imagined. Each have their own reason for blogging and blogs seem to vary from short funny posts about baby’s day to day activities to full on essays and rants or product reviews.
We started this blog as a way for us to share our journey into parenthood, to help inspire or offer advice to people on a similar adventure to us. Like most bloggers we wanted the interaction, we both love being able to communicate with others and swap stories etc. Blogging can be pretty daunting at first, there were times we held off posting for fear we were swamping people’s feeds. There were also weeks when we worried that we weren’t posting enough.
We have now come to the conclusion that we want blogging to be something we do as and when we have something to blog about. We don’t want to feel pressured into posting to a strict regime. Which is why at the moment our posts never seem to have a routine to them. But it suits us fine.
As we said previously, blogging can be daunting. So we thought we would ask some fab blogging mums on twitter for their best advice. We have posted that below to help you start a blog or improve your blogging experience. Please go visit these fab blogging mums blogs and show them some love.

Thank you to each mum who helped us with this post by offering some fantastic advice.
One piece of advice we find to be the best so far is, if you need advice on anything, just ask. Because there will always be someone kind enough to offer some advice.
