Since the Tots100 Index of British Mummy and Daddy Bloggers launched in July 2009 it has grown from around 300 blogs to almost 2,000 blogs, representing a huge amount of varied, interesting and well-written blogs.
The Tots100 team is keen to help promote these blogs, and encourage our members to discover new sites, writers and friends. So from this month, I have been given the honour or writing a monthly column for the Tots100 site, highlighting a selection of new Mummy and Daddy blogs in the index, and telling you about them.
As I’m sure you will agree, all blogs are worth recognition and I think it’s important to encourage each and every new blog writer to this fabulous world of online interaction. When a blogger goes to the trouble of creating a blog, the least we can do is help them succeed.
This month, I’ve chosen a small selection of Mummy and Daddy blogs that have joined the Tots100 index this month. I guarantee that you won’t just find them a pleasure to read – you’ll make some new blogging friends into the bargain! Show our new bloggers what we, on the Tots100 index, are so famous for – showing bloggy love!
Thanks for supporting our new Tots100 blogs, and until next month – enjoy!
