Twitter: @BessiesVegFood

I would really appreciate any feedback on the blog - for the last year I've just been writing it for my own benefit (the online mealplan meals DH has no excuse to not make dinner grin), but would love to know if there is anything I could do to make it more useful/interesting for other people

DillyTante Fri 01-Feb-13 12:55:53


Good move craftsonsea. Love the description 'non-pretentious crafts' grin. I too do non pretentious crafts, also yarnbombing, feminism, psychology, & a bit of miscellany. I blog at Dillytante and am @dillytante on twitter.

My blog is sadly neglected due to having so much on, but I don't want to give it up.

hz Fri 01-Feb-13 14:31:01

Hi all, thanks for the thread CraftsonSea! My wee blog is about camping on the wilder side. All the campsites I review I have personally visited and ALL are campsites that allow campfires (my personal obsession!)

I also include outdoor activities with kids, outdoor/nature books and camping gadgets, campfire cooking and well, just about anything to do with camping really and I post about the marvellous Mazda Bongo campervan we camp in.

Rea2013 Sun 03-Feb-13 23:04:46

Sorry, posted that too quick, it's a kind of online diary for me, my first blog so not sure if I can keep it going or if its any good, only time will tell I suppose. I also have twitter rea_2013 but not quite worked out how to use it yet.

Onykahonie Sun 03-Feb-13 23:15:46

Hi Bessie <waves back> I've been a bit of a lurker for a while, but thought I'd try and get involved with the bloggers network grin

Hello, I've been a Mumsnetter for yonks and have just had a blog accepted into the Mn bloggers network, whoop!
Although I've been blogging for the small business I run for 3 years, that blog is attached (not a v technical phrase, I'm not techy!) to my business website so it can't be accepted by the MN bloggers network. However I've recently started a news/history blog A Royal Baby which I'm really enjoying setting up.
I'm on Twitter too.

landofmakebelieve Mon 04-Feb-13 23:04:39

Hi, I'm married with two small boys, and blog about parenting dilemmas and opinions, and life as a SAHM.
I can be found blogging here :

Some of these blogs on here I'm already familiar with as I'm already following or have heard of. smile
<off for a mooch over to look at the blogs I haven't heard of before>

FlipFantasia Tue 05-Feb-13 17:24:54

Craftsonsea thanks for starting this! A great idea to introduce a bit more of a community and showcase some of the great blogs in this network!

I'm a mum to a 10 month old girl & a 2.10 year old boy, living in northern NJ (after years of living in London, which is where I developed my MN addiction!), and blogging about my family's adventures in greener living.

I blog at Low Impact Parenting.

I'm on Twitter @lowimpactmama and on FB at Low Impact Parenting

If you follow me I'll follow you back. I read a lot of blogs through twitter in particular. Though I'd love to get into using Facebook for my blog - I've tried, and failed, thus far, and not quite sure what I'm doing any tips on that would be great too!

minimumthebare Tue 05-Feb-13 19:55:10

Ooh, I've found some lovely blogs through this, thanks Craftsonsea! Great idea smile

I blog at and on twitter @minimumthebare

I'm a newish mum to a small boy, and am trying to get back into good beauty habits now I'm back at work-usually manage to blog once or twice a week, and love hearing any comments or feedback!

Egusta Wed 06-Feb-13 09:08:06

Hello! I have enjoyed looking through the blogs. I am Egusta, and I live with my husband and son. I blog recipes and the occasional restaurant review. I just love cooking (and eating!) and I am sometimes embarrassed, wondering why on earth anyone would be interested in what we eat, but I love sharing recipes and reading other food (and lifestyle and feminist and social commentary) blogs so took the plunge last year.

Hi Egusta, I nominated you for a MAD blog award. But not because of your seafood recipe. Oh no, not that.

Egusta Wed 06-Feb-13 12:18:26

It's yum!! Really!

What a a MAD blog award, and what did I do? [bites fingers]

Egusta Wed 06-Feb-13 12:21:27

Oh! Just googled. Thanks!!!!!

I have a blog as sdtgcraftygenius here. It is a series of, often unconnected witterings about my attempt to look more positively at life.

I have depression, and have suffered from it since I was 14, and having left group therapy last year, I am trying to focus on the positives rather thna the negatives - hence the name of the blog - One Positive Thing Every Day. Sometimes I don't manage to post daily, but I have been doing better this year.

I blog about my crafty things there, as the things I make are positive things for me, and I am trying to learn to be happy and proud when I achieve something, rather than looking for all the ways I have failed.

I would love it if people read my witterings, but wouldn't blame you in the slightest if you found it all too me me me me.

Egusta Wed 06-Feb-13 13:31:52

I think that is the point of blogging SDTG! To be 'me me me'. smile

I like your blog alot, and love the idea of focusing on the positives. I need to do a bit more of that myself, as I have been overwhelmed with stress lately. So your mantra is a good one to live by.

I LOVE your header picture also. It is so beautiful.

Thank you so much, Egusta!

PigeonPairNell Wed 06-Feb-13 21:48:18

Thanks crafts on sea - what a good idea.

I've been blogging for a couple of months, on the good stuff, the cute stuff and the shit that happens when you're a SAHM to a pigeon pair of little-uns

mammalewis Thu 07-Feb-13 12:52:24

Hi all, I'm pretty new around here and the blogging world! I blog over at and I'm on Twitter as @mammalewis

I'm a mummy to one very beautiful (if I do say so myself!) little boy called Alfie who is 20 months. I'm a wife to a lovely man, referred to as Mr L on my blog. I work full time but hoping one day to become a WAHM.

Really looking forward to reading the new blogs and hopefully getting some feedback on my own blog!

Egusta Thu 07-Feb-13 13:03:33

Alfie is GORGEOUS!!!! What a little sweetie.

Egusta Thu 07-Feb-13 13:08:54

Austin and Gwen are too, Pigeon. smile very jealous of your great trip away!

Hello, I've just joined the mums net bloggers network - I blog about green urban living with a baby and pre-schooler including monthly green challenges. I've also challenged myself to find more fun in my 'new' life with little ones at the same time. But this week I've been distracted by baby starting nursery and blogged about childcare.

RecipeJunkie Fri 08-Feb-13 06:09:45

Craftsonsea you have the best ideas...

So another food blogger here - Recipe Junkie and the Attack of the Custard Creams. Blogging for 18 months now - 'family food', lots of cake, occasional fancy things and a bit about mad 3 legged springer spaniels and the 'challenges' of parenting (the things that 'challenge' me. Like craft). Also trying to branch out into some foodie comment and occasional low key controversy - wrote something about GBBO which caused a bit of a stir this week...

@RecipeJunkie27 and on Facebook

Going to scroll back and check out the blogs on this thread now!

Hello everyone,

I have a blog called So Resourceful, it has been going for two and a half years now and has a nice regular group of followers.

Forgot to add, my blog is another crafty one, that focusses on being resourceful with tihngs, this year I am focussing on using up all my scrap fabric rather than buying new stuff (I have a bit of a fabric addiction).

I love your rainbow pictures, overmydeadbody! I'm following your blog and have commented. And you are clearly in a whole different league to me, when it comes to crafting - you do lovely work.

piggyfair Mon 11-Feb-13 11:21:37

ThisLittleP Wed 13-Feb-13 14:52:36

What a fab thread, I am now thinking 'roll on bedtime' so I can have a good browse through everyone else's blogs grin Big thanks to OP.

Hi, I'm Erika, my (fashion) blog is This Little Pretty, I've been blogging a little while, but haven't really 'put it out there' too much as I am a wimp see such alot of criticism of mums who like to wear their nice gear. I just like clothes!!! And high heels!! Simple as that.

Twitter is here

I'd be very grateful for feedback, and of course it's always a boost when someone leaves comments (down on begging knees!), and even more so when someone follows you (and gives me a chance to follow back smile).

I haven't as many posts as I'd like lately as I'm training for London marathon in April, so seem to be forever in running gear, not much opportunity for heels these days.

Oh, living in Essex wink and mum to DD who is nearly 6 and DS who is nearly 3.

Giving all you fellow bloggers a big high-five. Keep up the good work ladies.

Mummykindness - I have followed your blog, because I too struggled with PND (exacerbating, in my case, undiagnosed depression), and it is good to know that you are not alone. I hope that writing helps you banish the black dog.

wickeddevil Wed 13-Feb-13 15:07:08

Thanks for all these blog suggestions everyone. Particularly looking forward to the ones about crafts and baking - which are obsessions hobbies of mine.

Hello too to all the Essex girls (wink)

BIWI Thu 14-Feb-13 16:25:15


I'm certainly not new to Mumsnet, but I am very new to blogging and have just been accepted into the Bloggers' Network. Hurrah!

This is my latest blog

I'm blogging about my progress as a runner, as I'm committed to doing a 5K run in October, for MrsDeVere's charity of choice, World Child Cancer . MrsDeVere lost her daughter Billie to cancer when she was only 14.

I'm on Twitter in my real name @alisonstarr and a version of my MN name @TheRealBIWI. Don't mind if you follow either or both (or neither!)

I'm following you now, BIWI. And I think you are amazing to do what you are doing.

BIWI Thu 14-Feb-13 17:06:20

No, no, no - I'm not at all! blush But thank you.

Bloody hell, I wrote more than that, I'm sure!

Anyway, it's a sort of style and beauty blog for plebs who haven't a clue where to start. Like me.

Alreethinny Thu 14-Feb-13 23:30:36

Alreethinny - I have signed up for your blog updates - I still can't see the 'follow' bit - apart from the follow you on twitter. And whilst I do have a twitter account, it has lapsed, alone and unloved for months now.

Hi! I'm Susie. 'A Green Mouse' is my blog - in the Education section. It's for children under 13 and their parents/teachers. I'm making short videos in Spanish and French about pets and other topics which appeal to children. My latest post is about a hamster(!): I've had lovely comments from teachers and my resources are available on the Times Educational Supplement online, but I'd love to reach out to parents and children who aren't learning languages at primary school as it really helps to start learning a language early in life. I have lovely songs on my website as well, and lots of plans for future resources. I'm @1AGreenMouse on Twitter and my youtube channel is AGREENMOUSE1.

JerryLeadbetter Sat 16-Feb-13 14:30:00

Warning- you may find me moaning about lack of sleep at the moment more than you might like

This thread is great- will peruse new blogs tonight whilst drinking wine! smile

ladymontdore Mon 18-Feb-13 15:40:36

So glad I found this thread. I've just started a blog Today in Mrs George's Kitchen, it's basically about everything I do in my kitchen - cooking mainly! I actually started it last year, then managed to forget the blog name blush password, email etc. I've managed to find them again.

I'd love some feedback - shall I give up now? Blogging is taking me far from my comfort zone!

In the meantime I shall enjoy looking at all these lovely blogs!

GrandmaAbson Wed 20-Feb-13 18:05:29

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum. I've been blogging since December 2010 about my Grandma Abson's (1886-1997) traditional baking. I do talks, demos and book signings and everyone from baking devotees,to culinary nostalgics and those new to baking always enjoy them. I want to promote the idea of traditional home baking like Grandma used to do. Today, I've been talking to visitors to Hodsock Priory Snowdrops in Notts and you can read about it on my Blog - and there's a recipe each time too! This week it's Rhubarb Crumble.

Hopefully Thu 21-Feb-13 14:57:10

Oh gosh, I have just wasted an hour looking at virtually every blog on this list instead of actually posting an introduction.

I'm an old hand MNer, but mainly loiter in S&B.

I blog over at Applied Style about personal style and pretty much any other lifestyle/beauty/health./fashion stuff that takes my fancy. Mainly I get enormously excited about capsule wardrobes.

Hopefully Thu 21-Feb-13 15:03:50

Oh, and while I'm at it on I'm on twitter too. I'm also on Facebook, but it's really a business page rather than a blog page, iykwim. It's linked from my blog if anyone wants to find it badly enough wink

wrestlingalligators Sun 24-Feb-13 20:26:55

This is a great thread, I've followed three blogs I loved the sound of already!

I'm a children's author and zookeeper to three preschool sons. My blog is somewhat eclectic, from tips on getting published, to Baby boys - not a consolation prize!

I'm on Twitter too @raisingchimps

PavlovtheCat Sun 24-Feb-13 21:44:14

Hi all, lovely thread, and just what I needed! I have lost my writing mojo and need some new blogs to inspire me. I need to read and not write for a while.

Have checked a few out already and followed some on Twitter. Like some others, I follow blogs easily through twitter so if you link to your posts there I will most likely check out your new posts if I am following you.

I am @winecantcureit on twitter

blog is wine cant cure back pain it's my journey through my (relatively new) experiences of being a parent, wife, worker, wine drinker (not so much of that any more) suffering from severe chronic back pain due to lumbar disc problems. But, like I said, I lost my writing mojo so I am not expecting a huge following grin.

TheLovingParent Sun 24-Feb-13 22:28:29

Hi! I'm a single mum of 7 year old daughter and 6 year old twin boys. I mess up A LOT of the time but love to reflect on it and figure out where I could have done things differently. My ever-loving, caring, supportive fictional friends - The Loving Mother and The Loving Father - help me out with that!

You can see a summary of each blog post at and find out more at

Hope to 'see' you there!

Come and say hi!!

MikeandLor Tue 12-Mar-13 11:37:53


I'm Mike and together with my wife Laura we run a film review website where the reviews are specifically tailored to help parents decide if the film is suitable for their children.

We love films but when we took our nephews (then aged 6 and 4) to see Toy Story 3 a few years ago along with their father and we were very surprised at their reaction. We knew they were sensitive children, but expected that Toy Story - rated PG - would be fine for them. In actual fact they were terrified at certain parts and we had to take them out of the cinema to calm down. So we decided to write reviews that would highlight parts like that in PGs and 12As so that parents would know in advance if the film might have elements that would upset their children.

We don't judge, we just write helpful reviews so parents can make a choice they are happy with! So far we have been interviewed by the Leicester Mercury (should be out Wednesday 13th or Thursday 14th March) and are trying hard to get the word out to parents as far and wide as possible.

We can be found at and we're just waiting for our Mumsnet bloggers application to go through so we can join in with all you lovely bloggers!

- Mike and Laura

Hi. I am Janet. I found myself unexpectedly pregnant while meditating in a Buddhist monastery in Nepal. After traveling through India on a motorcycle, teaching English in Tokyo, studying Aromatherapy in Australia and starting my own business in Montreal….becoming a single mother was not in the cards.

For the past 8 years, I have been juggling an executive career in the beauty industry in 2 continents, while trying to find enough time to spend with my little girl. Several obstacles have followed within those years, as a woman in business, as a single mom and as human being. Please read more about it in:

I'm a bit all over the place at the moment!

I blog at A Hell Of A Woman which is a mish mash of posts about PND, book reviews, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Zombie Apocalypse and pretty much anything else that I love!

I tend to spend a bit too much time on twitter, where I'm @the_last_slayer and I've just joined Polyvore which I'm using to explore a new interest in clothes and my own personal style. You can find me there as thelastslayer.

Hi Craftsonsea,
I can't believe I've only just noticed this thread. Great idea, and as other posters say, introduces a more community feel to this site!

I write about interiors: often about products to buy that I think are worth posting about (nothing at silly prices) eg upcoming spring/summer launches from high street brands, plus new ranges from online companies...

and then I throw some random bits into the mix, for example artwork from international artists that we might not have heard of here (well I haven't heard of, and think others would like to know about it!), plus architecture, vintage, etc. So all a bit of a mix; I tend to post twice a week so the content changes regularly.

Do come and say hello and let me know about your sites, I'd love to discover them.

Twitter: @findthedetails

My blog - Betty's Nifty & Thrifty is totally inspired by Mumsnet. I've seen so many hints & tips over the last few years from here and the net, I decided to put them all in one blog. It goes without saying that the Poonami Vest Trick is one of the first hints!

I only started it a few months ago and I'm on a very steep learning curve but I'm really enjoying it.

My blog is and my twitter is

Hope you enjoy reading it!

marthamufffett Sat 23-Mar-13 09:05:06


I write 'Letters to Nigel Slater'.

It is a fictional correspondance between Martha Muffett (care-worn single mother in the Peak District) and the food writer Nigel Slater, following his 'Kitchen Diaries' vol 1 and 2.
It is about life and food and the universe; infused with humour and a ladle-full of love.

Nigel's really enjoying it. He said, on Twitter,'I can't tell you how much hilarykaren's charming blog has meant to me over the past year'; which was really sweet of him.

Richard Johnson, food writer in 'The Guardian', found it and has loved it and has asked me to do some reviews for British Street Food, which I am now also placing inside my blog.

PLEASE TAKE A LOOK and judge for yourself.

Best wishes,

Hi Craftonsea and others in this thread,

I started my blog in Feb but have only just got into the swing of it. I am a cartoonist who is taking a wry look at parenting in the 21st century. You can see some of the mums and kids I meet including Gummy Mummy (with her mobility scooter), Plummy Mummy (in her Chelsea Tractor), Mission Mum (with her Kumon Maths and violin classes) and Pyjama Ma with her inimitable wardrobe at the school gate. There'll be some dads too in due course.

Please let me know what you think, and I welcome any good suggestions! smile

Hi all, I'm Jackie and I blog about stuff that inspires me - and anyone else - to remember we've still got a life even though we're mums! Lots of tips on being confident, communicating well with kids etc.

I live in the Scottish Borders where it's often cold and wet so drop by with a warm cup of tea, cheer me up and join in the chat at and Tweet me at @JackieCharley

Hello, I'm Natalie and I blog about motherhood generally, but also with reference to my old career in advertising in London. I've done the big move out of the city and into the countryside, and have 2 young boys, so this is really just me musing about it all.

I'm also trying to write more generally, I have a few ideas for a novel and for a sitcom, so who knows, this could be the start of something special...

playlearn Wed 01-May-13 13:41:06

Hello! Such a great idea, my blog is Play & Learn Everyday, I'm @playlearntoday on Twitter, here's my Facebook page and my Pinterest page.
My blog is about the games, toys and activities that I play with my little boy everyday. He's 18 months old smile

Looking back through the links it's great to see the huge variety of topics that people are blogging about.

I'm a newbie as well - site is

My kids are both at primary school but they're growing up fast. I started the blog to record our days out, walks and cycle rides so that when they're stroppy teenagers I can look back fondly! Hopefully it will also provide inspiration for other families with ideas for cheap days out.

Thanks for reading

GinotPrigio Wed 01-May-13 21:02:33

Hi, I just started a new blog about starting a new life in the countryside having moved from London. I am also blogging about all things toddler and parenting related.


Hi gals.

Rather unusually, I'm a bloke that somehow was welcomed to the blogging fraternity here!

My blog is about the male midlife crisis, dating, (I'm divorced), things I find frustrating, interesting, funny, and occasionally controversial. Though I rarely post anything about my two gorgeous young children.

Unlike a lot of blogs though, this isn't about me, me,

Please feel free to make comments, get involved, or just to have a go. I don't mind.wink

Hello everyone Here's my blog!

Off to read some of yours now!


JanString Tue 07-May-13 14:09:00

Hi, Thanks for asking.
My name's Jan and I started writing my blog in January this year, am enjoying writing about my experiences - through travel to teens and beyond. At the moment I am thinking about my youngest child reaching her 18th birthday and realising that Parenthood never ends,it just changes colour!
Is anyone else have similar experiences?

This is my blog

Hey everyone,

I'm Eden, I moved into a flat recently with a MASSIVE 'garden'. I say 'garden' because it was overgrown and I've dug some amazing things up like a shopping trolley. I'm slowly turning into a gardening bore and instead of inflicting my endless excitement about my garden on my friends I'm writing about it.

My plan is eventually to be able to grow loads of food, feed myself. keep some rescue hens and slowly turn into Felicity Kendal in the good life. I'm stubbornly doing it all myself. My back aches, I've given up on having nice nails and I have bramble thorns and wood splinters but I love being outside and the pride I have in my efforts make that last cup of tea at the end of a heavy really special.

If you'd like a read I can be found here

Hope you all enjoyed the lovely long weekend

I'm going to have have a look at some of your blogs now and I hope some of you come and visit me too.

TuedorandWright13 Tue 04-Jun-13 11:40:05

What a fab thread...thank you.

I am a new blogger, trying to find the right balance with starting up a fashion and bits smile, brand/label, part time. I produce all my garments at home and my blog will be based on the journey towards launching and maybe one day a high street shop. Children give you courage to start things like this, and government gives you no choice but to find alternatives. check me out on - - facebook/tuedor.wright

Would love your feedback. Tuedor is me and Wright are my 2 boys :-) (son and hubby :-)).

I will publish the video behind the shoot later today, which took place 2 weeks ago - talk about working on your savings and to a tight/no budget and freelance staff! madness.

Also if you are starting out - ask me anything, you never know :-).

Hi folks i,m Helen, Newby blogger here. Like me you've been making contingency plans for the school hols with SAS precision but you know as well as I do the best laid plans just melt, i thought trying to keep my kids away from the Xbox this summer would be a challenge , think again, stumbling on simple but affective card game called SNAPFIT on the website has saved the day, my other girlfriends think the games a life saver and bought some.
£7.99 we thinks isn't much for peace of mind this summer and content kids, .....good luck folks !!!!
