Best Blog Post nomination
It was a lovely surprise when an email landed in my inbox last week to tell me that something I wrote in June - After I Die - has been included in the long list for best post in this year's Blog Awards Ireland. But it is a voting contest, and if you like it, I would really appreciate a few votes, but I promise not to ask again on here!
You can vote here Just click 'Looking for Blue Sky' and then click on the 'vote' button at the bottom of the page.
And take a look at some of the other great posts on there too, like these from:
At the Clothesline
Bumbles of Rice
Glitter Mama Wishes
and too many more to mention.
Irish parenting bloggers
Has to be one of the best groups on Facebook and if I have a spare five minutes I often head there first. It totally takes my mind off whatever life is throwing at me on that particular day and I've discovered lots of great blogs and friendly bloggers, even if I have tights that are older than some of them, as I discovered earlier this week.. Not to mention blogging and review opportunities, meet ups, information and advice. Thanks to all of you!
Instagram and Google Plus
How did I miss out on the fun of Instagram for so long? Especially as I like taking photos, even though they are often pretty awful. It's just so fast and easy to use, and somewhere else to escape to when I need a short break.
And Google Plus has finally let me set up the account that I always wanted... so I hope to be more active over there too.
I've new buttons up there on the top right if you'd like to see what I'm doing.
