Two months of blogging and…

Well I have been blogging for just two months today so I thought I would do a little celebratory post, oh any excuse for a bit of a celebration.

Actually this post really is not about me because although this blog is me (my sister reading my blog said it just like you talking phew I didn’t want to sound like anyone else) it is more about well the people I am finding along the way and I know there are lots more to discover so please feel free to point me in the right direction.

Firstly I will  do a few newbies like me, Michelle at Old Fashioned Mummy and Jackie at Green Aspirations started out maybe a little before me, Michelle has just completed the A-Z daily challenge which hands up to her she did achieve. Lucy at Smart eating Practise as mentioned in my Spring clean yourself review blog with her free E course.

Next Caroline the lovely Scribbling Mum I have a apology for you, your linky the one you started last month I linked up not knowing what I was doing I am right there on the top of the list in April and no link back to you, no post for Living in the now dude so there is two links back to you and I will make it up to by writing a living in the now dude post this month.

Next up Imperfect pages with her perfectly decorated biscuits, no I am not jealous honest though again a sorry to you I did comment on your comment you left but it left it somewhere else. I was not being rude by not replying honest !!!

Now Michelle from Mummy from the Heart I read last week she was a marmite sort of person, well I like Marmite (actually I prefer Asda’s own brand not as salty but that is beyond the point) she has lots of trouble commenting on my blog as I do hers for some bizarre reason but some how we do succeed which I am glad.

Ahhh Marilyn at Soft thistle she is lovely I know she is the sort of person if I met in real life we would hit it off, not saying that I wouldn’t hit it off straight away from any of the above I might add but you know what I mean.

I have to add Erica at Little Mummy I know she has been a wee bit busy lately but without her I would not be writing this so thank you.

Slummy Mummy quite often guests posts for Erica and she always puts a smile on my face and I love the Pampered Mummy guest posts too keeping us all looking and feeling pampered, we deserves it though !

Jackie at Me Likey U.K blog spot always makes me hungry as does the talented Nova at Cherished by Me your cakes are the envy of many.

Red Ted Art the only blog I had ever signed up for before well really knowing anything about this wonderful world of blogging two months ago, her latest those Cake Pops look gorgeous and one Bex, Oscar and I are going to have a go at.

Jane at Northern Mummy with Southern kids makes me smile, a Ruth at Geek Mummy moved me with one of her a latest stories. Tales from a Village now moving to a town in Canada always has some beautiful things to show us. Then there is Hello it’s Gemma with her lovely photography and again I know exactly the person she would be if I met her.

For a bit of music and some honesty I go to Dancing without Sleeping and a bit of lots of thing and the non baking queen there is no-one like Rosie Scribble.

Sara has many a blog and what a enterprising woman she is but her Dear Dad is a very moving blog one written to help her and hopefully others too.

For Woman like myself in business Emma Mum’s Business Directory blog is very useful and Emma is a lovely person too.

Rebecca over at Two became Four seems very nice too, slightly worryingly her about page has a photo similar to my Facebook profile picture though do not have the Face mask on in that one but do the same thinking finger thing.

So as you can see two months down the line I have found some lovely people, lovely blogs to read which brings me nicely on to commenting sometimes on the blogs I love it just doesn’t play ball, Blogger I now know has another similar name and yes I know why !!!

Linky’s anyone give me a dummy guide ?

So two months on a big thank you for all my lovely readers for reading and all you lovely bloggers for blogging for me to have something to read and if I left you out I am sorry there are so many lovely blogs out there and I know so so many more to discover. Feel free to let me know.

As in real life I have diverse choice as you can see but which is truly me.

Right blow my candle out now, anyone for a slice :)

    Hi Ali.
    Thank you for the mention. What a fabulous idea for a post and so what the blogging community is about? If I get time I will check out some of the blogs you mention that I don’t already read.
    You are doing a brilliant job with your blog, must really put more into mine.
    Have a fantastic week, keep up the good work.

  4. Hee hee, don’t be silly! And thanks for the mention.

    It’s a minefield isn’t it, so much to learn but it’s all good.

    Brit Mums is a great place to start and there are lots of groups to join. I did an article a while back for them on the amount of memes and linkys out there, it’ll probably be out of date but see what you think – http://www.bmbblog.co.uk/2011/03/15-of-the-best-parent-blogging-carnivals-and-memes-.html

    The main thing I think is if you’re enjoying it then you’re doing it right ;)

    1. Ali says:

  7. Michelle Twin Mum says:

    Happy 2 months sweetie, I did not realise you have bene doing it for such a short time. I think my key to getting my comments ot work on yoru site is NOT to enter my URL, strange but true!

    Mich x

    1. Ali says:

      Thanks Mich x yes it feels like longer though :) must pop over to your linky now I think I get it !!! :)

  8. geekmummy says:

    Thanks for the mention, and I love this post because it’s given me loads of recommendations for other blogs I might like!

    I’ve found the trick with Linkys it simply to leap right in. Find one that inspires you, if it’s one of the big ones the hosting blog may have some guidelines of what you should or shouldn’t post, but other than that, give it a go!

    1. Ali says:

      Thanks Geekmummy glad you like the post.

      Thanks too for linky advice will try and jump into one next week, me being ungeekmummy will probably do something wrong again :) !!!

  9. Caroljs says:

    1. Ali says:

      Thank you too, yes have great taste in lots of things ;) and thank you for a great blog :)
