  1. I love the random fact!!! that is amazing! It’s funny I often wonder with things like this did we influence the baby or did they influence us? When I was pregnant with my second daughter I went really organic and had to buy organic bamboo cloth nappies, I was meditating, and almost like a hippy. Her whole birth was the complete opposite to my first (so stressful), it was like an out of body experience, the room was dark and silent. And my daughter now at 9 is so floaty and carefree and quirky, I call my children different names on my blog to protect their privacy, but she even has a hippy name lol. I wonder did I affect her, or was it all her and she made me change during that pregnancy? Sorry for bobbing on, have great day xx #anythinggoes

  2. Lovely to be introduced to new bloggers, so hello Laura! I couldn’t get through my day without tea, but probably drink way too much! Good luck with your blogging and I shall look out for you. Good to connect. Alison x #AnythingGoes

  3. yep – just do it! and enjoy it – don’t worry about stats and positions and what not at first – just write from your heart #anythinggoes

    I dont know anyone who doesnt like Tea! I adore my cuppa tea 😀 But I’m Irish so that goes with the territory 🙂 So nice to read how you started blogging and why you enjoy it! Thanks for sharing #AnythingGoes

  5. The Tale of Mummyhood

    I can totally relate to this, I too started blogging when we decided I wouldn’t return to work. I really felt like I needed something for me and so I started my blog!

    Thanks for introducing her Debbie

  7. I think that’s the wonderful thing about blogging that can give us purpose and meaning to our lives, a way to stay connected, without going ‘out’ to work. Blogging is wonderful.
    Interesting about the coffee, tea and pregnancy thing. I had a terrible pregnancy diet, and now my daughter is pretty fussy! #BloggerClubUK

  8. Lovely to meet Laura and get to know her blogging goals. Definitely agree that it’s lovely to have something that is just your own, to take in whatever direction you want, another “baby” in a way!

  9. Oh I love Laura’s blog and I like what she says about why she loves blogging, that it is all hers and that the blogging community are so supportive – I agree! #bloggerclubuk

  10. What a fab way to introduce new bloggers!! Hello Laura 😊 I was very much the same with my first baby I really wanted to start writing and didn’t have the push to do it until my little boy came along! Although I spend more words on my big girl than my wee boy! #bloggerclubuk

  11. Ah I love this series and finding bloggers that I may not have come across yet. It’s inspiring that the more you blog, the more you fall in love with it – I’m so pleased it’s all working out well for Laura and that she pushed herself to make it happen 😊 #bloggerclubuk

  12. This is such a great idea, I have followed parenting blogs for ages and recently decided to take the plunge and do it myself. It is so nice to find new blogs to read and follow. I love that no 2 are the same! #bloggerclubuk

  13. Ah lovely to get to know more about you Laura – I totally understand your feelings about blogging as having something for yourself, and also how wonderful the blogging community is. I think your attitude is brilliant too as the writing should always be the focus of a blog in my opinion!

    This is such a great series Debbie, it’s lovely to get to know other new bloggers better.

    Love reading about why other bloggers start and being a newbie I am so encouraged about your advice and doing it for me and being myself. It can be quite overwhelming taking on so much advice! Looking forward to reading more from your blog. 🙂

  15. It’s amazing how addicting blogging is! I think that is the perfect advice – your voice comes out over time & things fall together. We all go through the new blogger panics though & questioning. And I’m still in & out of it lol Great to learn more about you, Laura! #BloggerClubUK

  16. Hi Laura! Lovely to learn a little more about you! Isn’t the blogging community just fab?! And you’re so right about the advice to anyone thinking of starting a blog – they must! Thank you for sharing #BloggerClubUK

  17. Hi Laura – nice to get to know you a bit better. I have a friend who doesn’t drink hot drinks – ANY HOT DRINKS!! I mean, how can you adult without a hot drink??! 😉
    You are so right about the blogging community – so supportive and welcoming.
    Great series Debbie x

  18. Lovely to read more about you Laura and your reasons for starting a blog. I think the advice you’ve shared is very important and I love the fact that one of your favourite things about blogging is the fact that your blog is all yours and you can take it in any direction you want. The blogging community is also one of my favourite things about blogging. How funny that you don’t like tea because it made your mum sick when she was pregnant with you and the same is true for your brother with coffee. #bloggerclubuk

  19. This is such a great series! I love to hear other people’s stories about why they started blogging and love the random question too! I’m delighted you’re enjoying blogging, Laura. I think for many of us, there’s been a creative person waiting to break out for years and when we finally publish our first post we’ve got wings and we are writing and we are being creative. Its wonderful. All the best! #bloggerclubuk

  20. love this series! Lovely to learn more about Laura… I too blog for a bit of something for me away from the kids and husband (even though my blogs are ALL about the kids and husband lol) but…I get where Laura is coming from. #BloggerClubUK

  21. I started my blog on maternity leave too for very similar reasons, and I’m planning to continue it now that I’m back at work because I love how it forces me to use my brain in a different way. I agree that the blogging community is fab too! #BloggerClubUK

  22. I know so many mummy bloggers that started their blogging journey while on maternity leave – myself included. It’s a great outlet – and I too love the community. So many nice, helpful people. Looking forward to looking at your blog. #BloggerClubUK

  23. Lovely to find out a bit more about you Laura. I went off milk when I was pregnant with my second and hated the fact I couldn’t drink tea! Certainly made up for it though after she was born. #BloggerClubUk

  24. I love Lauras blog and it was so lovely to read a little more about her. So many bloggers seem to start their blog while on maternity leave! I think it’s a great way of keeping your brain ticking amongst all of those sleepless nights and nappies! #BloggerClubUK

  25. Lovely guest post. I love Dear Bear & Beany’s blog and think you have done fantastically well in the short time you have been blogging. I really enjoy reading your posts and love the advice you have given here 🙂 Emily #BloggerClubUK

  26. Ooh I enjoy posts like this – I read Laura’s blog and its fab! I love a good cuppa tea – but strangely go off it when I’m pregnant, in fact that’s how I knew I was pregnant with my second!# bloggerclubuk

  27. That is so random and interesting about tea! What a random fact! I went completely off tea and chocolate when I was pregnant with H… then gradually go back to decaf tea, and chocolate a while later. Now, given H, at 18 months, points at a cup and says ‘tea’ and doesn’t seem averse to chocolate I’m not sure it’ll be the case with her!
    Great to know more about you!! This seems a great series! #bloggerclubuk

  28. Ohh I was so excited when I noticed it was Laura on blogger spotlight this week. I love her blog!! Good advice too, I wish I had started it properly years ago 🙂 #BloggerClubUK

  29. What a great idea for a series 🙂 lovely to get to know new bloggers.

    Laura – I know what you mean about starting I was umming and arrring for ages! And then the name came to me and that was it! I read articles all the time – there’s so much to learn!! Really loving your blog my dear xx
