Britmums has a fortnightly blog post carnival, hosted around the blogosphere, and this time it’s my turn to host.
Liz from The Mum Blog asks What’s wrong with being a mummy blogger? Liz encourages us to see mummy blogging as something very diverse and these carnival entries definitely prove that. I’ve decided to group them into categories, just to prove we nearly have a magazine ladies, (gents are of course welcome, but weren’t forthcoming this time).
