If you enjoy reading parent blogs, you are probably well aware that the MADS nominations are up and running. If you're not familiar then here's a quick lowdown. They are awards for mum and dad bloggers. There are various categories that you can nominate your favourite bloggers in, after firstly nominating a 'Blog Of The Year'.
There's a lot of 'blog love' going round, so I thought I'd also share some. These are the bloggers that got my vote.
Heart Mammi is written by the lovely Gemma. She writes primarily about CHD, raising awareness and hoping it will help other parents following the same path. Her youngest daughter, Martha was born with CHD last year and Gemma has blogged the highs and lows. Heart Mammi was one of the first blogs I found when I thought about starting my own blog and I've been gripped ever since.
Sparkles and Stretchmarks is written by the lovely Hayley, it includes an array of posts from very personal honest posts to reviews and family life. I love reading Hayley's blog as her posts engage her readers in such a friendly manner.
Edspire Wishing On A Star is written by an incredible woman, Jennie and was a worthy winner last year. I am a 'silent reader' of her blog, so many times have I gone to post a comment but haven't. Jenny is an amazing, honest writer, I have been brought to tears several times reading about her beautiful daughter Matilda Mae and have been inspired by the wonderful messy play activities she writes about.
Frugally Peachy is written by the wonderfully creative Emma. This year she's not shopping on the high street and is all blogging about it with lots of tips and advice. Emma also hosts craft blog club and has blogged some tasty looking recipes, check out the Nutella one!
Mummy Daddy Me is written by Katie. I have just started linking up with her weekly linky The Ordinary Moments. It's such a lovely way to document the little things in life that can easily be forgotten. Katie writes her posts beautifully and takes some fantastic photos.
Coombe Mill is written by Fiona and includes a whole range of posts from life at Coombe Mill to her 'Country Kids' linky. I definitely want to visit Coombe Mill when Eliot is older, it's such a lovely place with lots of family fun to be had.
There are so many other blogs I love, it's just a shame there is only one winner for each category!
Make sure you pop over to the MADS Nomination Page to vote for your faves!
