Every mother knows just how tough her job can be, but it can seem much tougher when you feel isolated and alone.
Millions of mothers are discovering the power of the internet, so, whether you need creative ideas, a good laugh, or just consolation in knowing that you’re not the only one to feel that way, connection is just a click away. In celebration of mums everywhere, we’ve picked ten women from some of our favourite mums (there were so many fab ones to choose from that we couldn't fit them all here!) who blog their daily battles and victories, and thank them for sharing their journey with us!
www.itsamummyslife.com "I am mum to two girls, I work in PR, I run Mabel & Milo, I run, I cycle, I write. I think life is much like learning to ride a bike; if I stop I might fall off."
christinemosler.wordpress.com "I am an over stretched, thinly spread mother of 4 writing, teaching, tutoring and parenting in Somerset. My family gets first call on my time, writing is a close second, teaching brings in a bit of useful money and the housework gets neglected with glee."
www.whosthemummy.co.uk "This is the true story of me (Sally) and my fantastic daughter, Flea. We live in Lancashire, although I often venture further afield in my work as a freelance blogger, writer and speaker. Flea hopes to be a pirate or a diver when she grows up."
fancifulalice.blogspot.com "I am Alice Griffin: mother, wife, writer, traveller, dreamer, vegetarian, animal lover, seeker of peace, crafter, sometime gardener; just doing my best to live an authentic life aboard my narrowboat."
www.familyaffairsandothermatters.com Mum to two boys 18 and 11 and a daughter 16. Navigating life after divorce.
mummymishaps.blogspot.com "I bought my own catering business in North Devon in the form of a little cafe in a small market town. After turning 30 I longed to start a family. On Wednesday 15th July 2009, at 3.17am my dream became a reality and it has proved to be the best thing I have ever done!"
mummywhispererblog.com "I’m a Mum, who loves to be a Mum. I’m not a perfect Mum. I’m a real Mum, with wrinkles lots of To Do’s, and a constant struggle to juggle time. I think we should all agree to disagree as Mums, and be strong enough to accept our differences. I’m also just ‘me’; someone who loves sparkly stuff, chocolate, walking the dog, trashy TV, Zumba, and my kindle. I’m a pretty rubbish cook, and tend to be pretty grounded whilst being half tree-hugger and half geek."
cherishedbyme.com "I am a single mother of five children whose ages range from fifteen down to two. We have dancers, footballers, rugby players and singers all living under one roof! Needless to say it is a happy combination of chaos and routines. I love my children dearly, am immensely proud of them and love writing about them or taking pictures of them. This blog hopefully gives you a glimpse into our chaotic household."
