I’m a bit nervous today. The excited kind of nervous, that you only get when you really care about something.
Today I can finally share with you something I’ve been working on for the last few months. Back in August, I got an email from my friend Alison at Not Another Mummy Blog. Alison had this idea to set up a collaborative blog. She wanted it to be a collaborative blog with a difference though.
After weeks of emails to and fro, Google hangouts, phone calls and Facebook chat, we are finally ready to show the world what we’ve been up to.
The Motherhood is a brand new blog brought to you by a team of seven. We are all mums and all have very different backgrounds. We are glossy magazine editors, journalists, writers, crafting gurus and photographers. But the one thing we all have in common is that, just like many of you, we are mums and we love to blog.
I’m not going to wax lyrical about what we are and what we plan to do, because we’ve already done that on our About page. But here’s the crux of it:
“We’re here to share the ups and downs, the eureka moments, and talk about how we tackle motherhood. We’ll pour that glass of wine after a bad day and exchange tips on how to make an impressive dinner for friends – the easy way. We’ll share how we tackle rainy days and tantrums, and what we’ve been buying with the spare pennies. We’ll rant about the things that get us down, but we’ll shout from the rooftops about the happy times too.”
This is us (I’m the one having a tantrum at the bottom because I’m scared of the crab I’m holding):
We are me (obviously), Alison from Not Another Mummy Blog, Charlotte from Write Like No One’s Watching, Katie from Mummy Daddy Me, Erica from Modern Mum Must-Have, Kelly from Domestic Goddesque and Eleanore from The Mumday Times.
Our content is varied, with interiors and style posts sitting alongside the odd light-hearted rant and beauty tip. From Phubbing to maternity fashion, debates about Christenings to the best way to cover grey roots, there’s all sorts.
If you like what you see then tell other people about it! We are new and excited but a party is no fun if you’re the only one there. So follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook and add us on Google+.
Now come on over to The Motherhood and crack open the biscuit tin. We’re waiting to welcome you.
