A few weeks ago I made a video and wrote a blog post recommending some dad bloggers everyone should read. I’ve done it again, only this time I’ve turned my attention to the mum bloggers (…and vloggers) that you may wish to get familiar with over the summer break.
Recommending mum bloggers is, I think, more difficult than recommending dads because there are so many more mama bloggers. Even so, I have come up with three whose blogs I regularly read and videos I frequently watch.
These are, I must add, three from an incredibly long list. The truth is I could have made an epic list and feature length video. It being the summer holidays, however, I want to spend time outside playing with my kids and so I decided to keep it short and brief!
You’re probably wondering whose online antics I suggest you familiarise yourself with. You can hit play on the video below (less than three minutes long) to find out, or scroll down to where I have written a few words about each of my suggested bloggers / vloggers.
The three bloggers / YouTubers I have suggested are:
Renee Davis who writes MummyTries.com and vlogs over at the MummyTries YouTube channel. Renee’s led a fascinating life with many ups and downs and this comes through in her writings which are incredibly candid and honest. Over on her YouTube channel, Renee can be just as honest (see this video about being the mother of a high-functioning autistic child) but it also features a range of recipes, many of which are super easy to create.
I simply couldn’t put together a list like this without mentioning Vicki Psarias. Vicki writes at HonestMum.com and vlogs here. Vicki’s a great friend and incredibly supportive. Her videos can be very informative and very uplifting and her blog, which was recently restyled to give it an online magazine format, features posts on parenting, recipes, confidence, blogging and so on. Vicki also hosts the superb #BrilliantBlogPosts linky each Thursday.
Finally, a blogger who sticks to words and doesn’t do video; Prabs who writes AbsolutelyPrabulous.com. Prabs’ writing has sometimes had me in hysterics, other times had me staring at my monitor in disbelief (this post for instance). Prabs is also great to engage with on social media.
As I say, those are three form a very large pool of exceedingly talented mum bloggers and YouTubers whose antics I follow. If you have any suggestions you’d like to make, please leave a comment below.
