Hi bloggers,

You may have noticed we're growing in size smile. New bloggers are coming to us every day looking for a place in our community.

We'd like to give them a boost into our blogging network and help introduce them to some of you more established bloggers. We'd love new bloggers to be able to meet and greet the old, and we're excited by your joint blogging ventures where you're getting together to make a difference.

So we'll be introducing one new blogger a day in the third slot on our blog homepage and we're opening up this thread for newbies to the network to mingle and make merry with blogging pros. Welcome!

Welcome Newbie bloggers smile
Introduce yourself?

Great idea! Welcome to all other newbies. I have only been here since November blogging, (though the blog has been an amusement to my family for a couple of years) and it's lovely to get some new readers and be challenged.

I love discovering new blogs through the MNB forum, and have found some crackers!

The welcome I have received so far has been warm, open and welcoming, and I am extremely grateful for that as it's quite nerve-racking being here with such brilliant established writers. I posted about my welcome here

So welcome all! Have fun!

I'd also like to welcome newbies smile. I'm a total newbie blogger, having started my blog in November (just published my 20th post!). I blog at Low Impact Parenting: Adventures in Greener Living about trying to raise my family green.

I've been a member of the network since late November and it's been a great way to find interesting blogs, get invaluable support and inspiration to keep blogging. The network members are very welcoming and there's a wealth of great writers willing to share their experiences.

Hey another new one over here (waves hello to everyone). Blogging as a side to our business and random things from art and crafts to home ed to cooking with kids and all else in between.

How new do you have to be to be new?
I've been blogging for about a year, but only recently joined mumsnet bloggers.

I write about lots of stuff that interests me, it's pretty eclectic, but I love homemaking and I'm a Christian a mother of two kids (one ASD) just starting out on a 'real food' journey, so that should give you some idea.

Hi all, I started my blog 'Bishopston Mum' just two months ago and am absolutely loving blogging. I would love to get my blog looking more professional and just keep improving it.

It is a blog about being a mum to two small children in Bristol. Please check it out:

Will be good to be in contact with other new bloggers, especially in the Bristol area :-)

Hello - I'm a newbie blogger (although have been on Mn regularly since 2002 grin so rather old in MN terms). The blog started as a thank you to a mystery mumsnetter who bought my eldest son, who is severely autistic, a very expensive communication aid. I hope through it she will be able to see what a difference it makes to him (it has already made an enormous difference).

I don't quite understand how the blogging network works yet, so forgive me if I say something stupid....
