Best of the Mummy Blogs: Ten at Ten (26)


Top Ten Parent Blogs

This week our guest editor on the Tots100 has been Carol, the uber-blogger behind Dance Without Sleeping, New Mummy’s Tips and half a dozen other blogging projects.

Earlier this week, Carol provided some brilliant tips for bloggers who want to know how to run competitions on a blog, and today she’s sharing with us her favourite 10 reads from British parent blogs in the last seven days.

Thanks to Carol for sharing some fabulous posts – if you’re looking for some great blog-reading then we suggest grabbing a cosy chair and settling down to enjoy these posts. Over to Carol: 

The powers that be have very foolishly kindly left me in charge of the 10 at 10 today. I have taken full advantage to find some new blogs to read, as well as the chance to read some old favourites.

Those of you that know me won’t be surprised that the first post I have chosen is all about music. Mrs Green at the Little Green Blog is celebrating music.

I’m currently on a diet and so obsessed with food. I nearly jumped up and made this 3 2 1 Cookies on Looking for Blue Sky.  *drools slightly*

KT at I know, I need to Stop Talking is saluting SAHM’s. Warning: this post contains swearing, which is part of the reason I like it!

This very short post from Withenay Wanders made me chuckle. Can There Be Anyone Nicer Than Me?

I am loving Mummy Mishaps You Know You’re a Mummy When…. list. I could add a few of my own!

Muddling Along Mummy has written a thought provoking post on NHS entitlement.  Entitlement is a Funny Word, what do you think?

Hot Cross Mum is talking Biscuits. See I’m obsessed and apparently so are her children.

Christine at Thinly Spread has been having some well deserved Me Time. I have very jealous.

According to Northern Mummy Parental Happiness is….

And finally Pippa at A Mother’s Ramblings as put together a to do list of things BB should in his last year before he starts school. BG has two years before she goes to school I will have to do one for her.


Thanks to Carol for sharing these posts, and we’ll be back again next Friday at 10!

  1. Wow – thanks so much for including me and my biscuity tale of woe – I’m honoured! 🙂 I hope I can find some uninterrupted time today (i.e. go and hide) so I can read your recommendations.

  2. Oh my goodness – I shouldn’t go away from the internet for a moment should I!! A week off and I miss this! Thanks, Carol, for including me on your list. My son’s comments made me laugh a lot too!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
