The internet is awash with fantastic blogs and, sometimes, getting through all the amazing posts out there can be an intimidating task.
That’s why we invite a Tots100 member to share some of their favourite reads with us every week. It’s a great way to find new blogs and stumble across content you might not otherwise discover.
This week’s pick of the Tots100 comes from Gemma at Helloitsgemma. In her typically understated, witty way, Gemma describes herself as, “Older not wiser. Mother to one small boy. Always has painted toenails. Enjoys cake. Would like to be employed.”
Gemma’s a displaced Londoner, recently relocating from the North to the South West.
HERE ARE Helloitsgemma’S FRESH FIVE:
Mascara and mud has a fantastically spontaneous feel to it. There’s a lovely “feel good” factor to the slices of life that Cerys writes about, with this post perfectly conveying that, “Oh yes please” moment that comes with an unexpected invitation. I love how Cerys manages to capture the vibe of a great night out catching up with an old friend.
Everybody loves Alice at More Than Toast, but I have only recently discovered her! (I am playing catch up, as usual.) Anyhow, Alice has been in New York. Actual New York without children. Imagine! Alice has such a nice style that there’s nothing else to do but like this post. A lot.
I’ve never been invited to a Greek Easter before. I felt left out, until I read Grenglish and got the full low down on what to expect – and more. Sarah files her Greek Easters like an episode of Friends. “Greekster” is the one where Friends looks dull by comparison!
Anna at Dummy Mummy writes very honestly. We’ve all been there (I know I have) trying to manage the different pieces of life with being a parent to small children. Sometimes it feels as if you just come up against a wall – and it’s bloody hard. This post perfectly encapsulates that feeling.
This post at Asturian Diary stands out for me as a reflection of how quality writing can cause a physical response. Mary writes about returning to the scene of an accident, which made me wince slightly. I’m a firm believer that positives can be borne from negatives and this post is a real example of that. It made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
Don’t forget to come back next Friday for another selection of handpicked posts from a Tots100 blogger.
Have a great weekend – and happy reading!
