My regular readers will know that I am now a parent. This means that the direction of my blog has changed, partially, and sometimes I blog about things other than my favourite moneymaking websites. Today I want to share with you some of my favourite parenting blogs. They all offer something a little different, in my opinion, and are blogs that I enjoy reading regularly.
My favourite parenting blogs
The Parent Game is a blog that has a fair amount of thought provoking posts. I love that Lucy covers a variety of topics with recent posts covering everything from how to relax as a parent to how to help your child when they are reluctant to go to school.
One of my favourite posts: Why is money management not in the curriculum?
What The Redhead said is one of my favourite parenting blogs. Donna covers a wide amount of topics related to parenting and I’ve also entered LOTS of fantastic competitions on Donna’s website. Donna’s blog makes it clear that her family is very important and talks about how life changes as a parent, and the challenges you can sometimes face, without being condescending.
One of my favourite posts: Each day is the start of something new
Me, him, the dog and a baby is a parenting blog I’ve discovered recently. I know Lyndsey from another website, from years back, and to see her family growing and learn more about them every week is lovely. Lyndsey and I have daughters just a couple of months apart so her posts are particularly relevant for me.
One of my favourite posts: The sacrifices we make
Chammy in real life is a blog from my lovely friend Chammy. I have met Chammy in person and she is exactly the same offline as online! Chammy blogs lots of lovely recipes, shares make up & beauty tips and blogs about money – something I love! I love that Chammy’s posts are filled with honesty and there is a real mixture of posts on her blog.
One of my favourite posts: The best Christmas cake recipe
Whinge Whinge Wine is a parenting blog that I have found fairly recently. Fran is refreshingly honest and already a few of her posts have made me feel better about my parenting choices. I love that Fran tells it how it is and I can relate to her posts so much because of her honesty. Also, we have lots in common – including both having pristine fandangos!
One of my favourite posts: I had two c-sections (and I don’t feel guilty)
Ultimately what I love about these parenting blogs is their refreshing honesty. Sometimes life isn’t always kind to you, and these bloggers don’t really sugar coat anything. Their posts, whether happy or sad, feel honest and that honesty is refreshing on the internet where people sometimes put on a facade.
There are lots of parenting blogs that I love to read but these are five of my favourite. I hope that you’ll find the above blogs interesting and why not pop over and have a browse?
