Being a blogger and mini vlogger I know how important, and lovely, it is for other people to recognise what you do and share it with their own readers. I can’t promise I’ll do this every week, but I thought Fridays would be a good time to share some of my favourite things and this week I’m starting with bloggers.
I guess being pregnant kind of influences my choices at the moment as I love reading people’s updates and seeing what they’re buying and how they’re feeling. I also noticed, as I was writing this post, that I have chosen female bloggers I admire, you know when you think “how does she do that” – I have that thought about these ladies frequently! I’ve chosen my favourite 3 bloggers and linked a post from each below.
1. Kerry Dyer – Lived with Love!
I’ve been reading Kerry’s blog and watching her vlogs since I set-up my first blog back in 2014. We have daughters of similar ages and we both went through some difficulties to finally get our babies. I can relate a lot to Kerry albeit she is somewhat younger than me. Her latest addition to the family, baby Aria, is beautiful and though Kerry must have her hands full with two kids, a dog and a house to run she still manages to blog daily.
Like Kerry I struggled with breastfeeding my first born and it put me off trying with Florence (she had one long feed straight after birth) which I deeply regret. Having overcome the worry Kerry is now successfully breastfeeding baby Aria and they both seem to be loving it, read Kerry’s breastfeeding update here.
2. Alex Pearce – Lamb and Bear
Again like me, Alex is expecting a baby in May. We’re going through all the same stages at around the same time; struggling with clothing for special occasions, the big baby name debate and preparing our hospital bags. We’ve also both been chosen to be Butlins Ambassadors for 2016 so maybe we’ll get to meet one day!
As well as being a mum and being pregnant, Alex runs an awesome online shop selling toddler fashion leggings. My favourite post of recent times has to be Alex’s take on hospital bag essentials. The design of Alex’s blog is clean and bright – it’s an absolute pleasure to read.
3. Emily Peacock – Emily and Indiana
Like Kerry I’ve been following Emily and her little family for about two years now – I think Indiana was just a few months old at the time and I enjoyed catching up on her pregnancy and labour with Indiana whilst I was trying to conceive myself.
I’m envious of people like Emily who started blogging and vlogging from a much younger age than me – they will have so many amazing memories to look back on and show the kids. Emily’s husband is also a vlogger so I should imagine there are few times when one of them doesn’t have a camera in their hand! The Peacock’s latest addition, Parker, is super cute and I love the outfits he wears.
My favourite post, of recent times, from Emily has to be this one; such amazing photos of Indiana having fun in some very, very muddy puddles.
These are just of a handful of the blogs I read regularly and have been really loving. Which are your favourite bloggers and why?
