Want to find new parenting blogs to read?
I’ve been reading some wonderful parenting blogs recently, written by the cutely named ‘British Mummy and Daddy Bloggers’.
Yes, the name is twee and I’m not entirely sure how I feel about being a ‘Mummy Blogger’ but I’ve decided to wear my badge with pride – I am, after all, proud to be a Mum and proud to blog. Oh, and I love being British too.
To find other British Parenting bloggers, join the BMB ning group where you’ll find over 2000 others. You’ll be able to share ideas and opportunities, find new sites and discover your own writing voice.
You can also take part in their bi-monthly carnival, which is a great way to meet new people and share some link love for your own site.
Over on the Tots100, you can keep up with the latest directory of British Mummy and Daddy bloggers.
Each month, the team tirelessly evaluate around 1,000 British parenting blogs and rank the top 100 according to popularity, engagement and influence; which is an incredible dedication to bringing you the best in blogging.
If you’re a parent blogger, Tots100 is a great way to discover new blogs to read and to promote your own blog to attract new readers.
To be eligible for the Tots100 you must be a UK blogger (or a blogger from overseas currently based in the UK) writing about family life and parenting. This doesn’t have to be the sum of your writing, but you must at least cover the family / parenting area on your site.
In the number 5 slot this month is Red Ted Arts blog run by Maggy who is on a mission to get everybody interested in art and having a go at crafts! On her site you’ll find artwork & paintings and a monthly craft carnival containing everything from simple crafts for kids to more complicated ideas for serious crafters. She has some tutorials and writes great book reviews as well.
So if your RSS feed is looking a bit empty or your new years resolution is to meet your ‘tribe’, you should be able to find some inspirational reading via both Tots100 and British Mummy Bloggers!

When I started out blogging BMB and Tots was where I found all the blogs that my google reader is now jam packed with!! Thanks for the saucepan lid tip! I never think to put lids on on my saucepans but will do now! 🙂
@Emma: Hi Emma, great to hear that BMB and Tots has helped you find great reading material too. Enjoy the saucepan lid trick (but be careful – things will come to the boil much quicker!)
