This morning I woke up to my phone buzzing… literally! Not my usual alarm, but the arrival of an email informing me that our humble little blog had won an award from Feedspot Blog Reader… We are number 7 in their list of The Top 10 UK Newborn Photography Blogs! Just Wow!
So, putting my excitement to one side, as my real alarm was now calling, and the usual morning rush ensued, dragging an unenthusiastic pre-teen out of bed, making packed lunches, ensuring the guinea pigs were turfed out into the garden for free food, checking school bags were packed, and ensuring said child did actually put her socks on. (She’s allergic… to socks! Didn’t you know).
Then on the way home from the school run, another email, from Feedspot Blog Reader, asking me to share the good news! Of course, that was always going to happen, I couldn’t wait to tell you guys… give me a chance!
It took a while for us to realise, it wasn’t a reminder, we’d won another award! Number 8 this time in their list of the Top 10 Uk Newborn Baby Blogs. Excited was an understatement! We don’t usually like to shout about us… we much prefer sharing your stories and your reasons to celebrate, and all your beautiful newborns are the best news ever! But if we don’t share our own good news with you… well, no-one else will do it for us!
So here we are… very proud (and doing our own version of a happy dance) to add these two awards to our 2017 award as one of the top 75 newborn baby blogs in a global list. Especially as some of the other award winning blogs include some of the top newborn photographers in the world!
We do work very hard on our blog to try to bring you articles with local or relevant information and tips about your pregnancy and your beautiful newborn, so it is lovely to have been recognised for this.
We also work closely with other local specialist service providers and baby businesses, such as One to One Midwives, baby massage, pregnancy pilates and baby first aid, to try to ensure we have plenty of local knowledge to pass on to new mums whenever asked…
As Mum’s ourselves, we totally understand the amazing and life affirming upheaval a newborn brings, so if you have any questions, or ideas for a new blog post that you would like us to cover, please do let us know in the comments. Whilst we won’t ever claim to have all the answers, there’s a good chance we might know someone who can help! We also occasionally will open up our blog page for guest blogs, such as this one from our lovely friend Tracy from Daisy Birthing… so if you know a local business who offers Mums-to-be or new mums a great service and who would like to write a lovely guest blog for us, please let us know!
And really, we wanted to say a big thank you to YOU… for following us and reading our blogs, it’s so lovely to know our blog is a little bit useful.
With love…Jo x♥x♥x
