Hello, I would love to read more blogs by people on this network and I'm sure others would too! Please introduce yourself and your blog and drop in your url, twitter handle and facebook page so we can all try and find some new things that might interest us! I'll start eh?
I write CraftsonSea which is non pretentious crafty stuff wink sewing, silversmithing, cooking, the odd rant, sometimes a bit of photogaphy or Essex stuff. My facebook page is over here and I tweet at @craftsonsea
Right who's next?

Hi all

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.

I may even sort my Pinterest account out some time soon!

I'm Michelle, blogging at, my tag line is Cook, Craft, Create - since I blog about a load of different things! I'm a work from home mum to a teenage boy and am loving blogging - been doing it since Nov '11.

I'm on Twitter - @cherry_o but rarely use it, never really got on with twitter, and on Facebook:

I'd love to get to know more UK bloggers since most that I read are US based which aren't always relevant to me!!

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.

PigeonPairNell Just checked out Wendy's World too, minimum. Great blog!

Just seen this, as not been on this thread for a while and wanted to say thank you very much, glad you enjoy reading it! smile and a bit of blush too!
Think that's the most emoticons I've managed to get into one little post, lol!

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!

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

GwenLove Tue 26-Mar-13 17:52:44

Hi I am Gwen Love and I am writing a fictional blog based on my diary from 1996. I am hoping it will take people back to their youth as I use loads of cultural references along side the emotional story. I hope everyone will enjoy a bit of 90's nostalgia with me. Find me on Twitter @gwenlove3 and here is my blog so far thanks xx
