Please Go Visit them


At the Brilliance in Blogging Awards last week I met some fantastic bloggers who I had never found outside the blogging networking.  I would be here all month if I tried to name them all, so I am sharing five today and encouraging you to Please Go Visit them.  And here's a challenge; then go name five blogs you recommend and let's see where we can lead each other.

The Start Up Wife won the Snap award for brilliant photography and she absolutely deserves it.  She takes the most magical photos and pairs them with her life experiences as the wife of a serial entrepreneur and mum.  She has inspired me to try and take better photos.  Oh and she's a lovely lovely person who I was thrilled to meet last week.

Dorky Mum is right up my street; she's a self confessed dork (although she's so not!!) and a mum (and a good one at that).  She writes as she talks and that's what I love to read.  Her blog is a fantastic sharing of her life and it completely helps me feel normal.  Go and see her, you'll love her.

I love reading and I love books, I even love writing books (it's the writing more than the publishing which I love).  Rachel also loves books and I find it hard to keep her stocked up with new ones.  Is it any surprise therefore that I love the blog Playing by the Book  Brilliant Booktastic.

Julia's Place is the must go place for anyone who loves to write, just for fun or professionally.  Julia is a retired teacher and the founder of the 100 word challenge (for kids at schools) and the 100 word challenge for grown ups.  Rachel and I both join in when time allows and I have met so many wonderful writers of now and the future through these.  Go and Visit Julia please.

You might have seen me write for R2BC - Reasons to be Cheerful; well this is the child of Mummy from the Heart who is someone you need to read.  She shares her life, her struggles, her weaknesses and her strengths; she inspires me and she was a thrill to meet last week.
