Best of the UK Parent Blogs: Ten at Ten (62)


Top Ten British Mummy and Daddy Bloggers

This week’s Guest Editor is Jen from Mum In The Madhouse:

So it is my turn to talk about the ten at ten this week and even thought I have been busy wearing my Blogging Police Uniform I have also been busy getting my new joint venture up and running with Cass from Frugal Family and Becky from Baby Budgeting.  So to start with please indulge me whilst I pimp our new site Frugal and Fun.

I have a couple of posts to really tug on your heartstrings, firstly a moving and helpful post from Kerry at And then All I thought About was you, whose daughter  was stillborn.  I really do not have the words, but please read this post as it might help you deal with a friend of family member who suffer a similar experience.

Then as it is Father’s Day on Sunday I loved this post from Emily at Pants With Names about an event I remembering clearly from the 1992 Olympics.  Here’s to all the Fathers out there.

Speaking of Father’s Day,  still haven’t got the old fella a card.  Why not have a go at making Multiple Mummy’s fantastic pop up father’s day card or just take a look at this post from Worms Eye-View, that shows that cards do not have to be difficult to be perfect and the one thing that all children love are stickers.

My Dad died 12 years ago and I miss him everyday, and see him in both of my children.  So it was wonderful to read Keith at Chronicles of a Reluctant Housedad’s post about  10 things he loves about his Dad.

On the subject of Father’s Day what do you do if you are a single parent?  Sally, The Evil Overlord is asking for advice.  Should she buy a present for her ex?

Sorry, I see a pattern emerging here… but then it is Father’s Day on Sunday. Moving on, we’ll go from Fathers to Daughters. Ever find yourself singing along to a song and then actually hear the lyrics and with a shock realise they are not something you want your children listening to?  Black heart left me seething, as it did Not Supermum. Get ready to feel outraged.

To my daughter, is a beautiful post by Katie from Katie And The Kids.  If you could jump to your child’s future what would you tell them?

Vaccines, One year on is a post from Chris Mosler of Thinly Spread and goes to show how one person can make a difference.  Be inspired, do something and if you are looking for something to do, then why not join in with a team of bloggers in jointly sponsoring a child with World Vision.  Find out more at Patch of Puddles.

Sally Whittle is founder of the Tots100, Foodies100, Trips100 and the Flea Retreat. When she's not working, she can be found blogging at Who's the Mummy, or having fun with her 13 year old daughter, Flea.

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!
