I need to kick off this week’s Brilliant Blog Posts with a HUMONGOUS thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Brilliance in Blogging Awards.
I’m still on Cloud 9 after my double whammy! Winning the awards for Best In Social Media and the Outstanding ‘Best of the Best’ Awards (as voted by the judges and BritMums) rendered me speechless. I know, hard to believe I could be lost for words! Just Wow Wow Wow!

I’m so freakin’ grateful for all your support! The awards ceremony was one big emosh fest which saw me give Gwynnie a run for her money in my acceptance speech.
Please don’t miss my post and vlog HERE.
I started this blog out of loneliness. Following the traumatic birth of my first son, Oliver, I felt alone and pretty broken without direction. Blogging helped me to regain my voice, reconnect with who I was before the trauma and become (thanks to BritMums who were there from the start), a wonderful network of supportive and kick-ass blogging friends and colleagues!
Blogging is the most liberating, empowering and flexible way to work. As I mentioned in my post on dealing with rejection, this screen is yours, and my window to shine.
Blogging was a lifeline to me the first time I hit publish- and the last few years have seen it become my full time job-now with a small team at Honest Mum. I get to work with people I admire and brands I love. I feel so grateful for this every single day.
So for this week’s #Brilliantblogposts, I’m sharing my whirlwind experience at BritMums live, where as well winning my two new babies, I also spoke at the conference, alongside the kick-ass Natasha Courtenay-Smith, a PR and author of the new book ‘The Million Dollar Blog’, which also features yours truly!
Big thanks to my BritMums Live sponsor, the super A2 Milk.
And, as always, I want you to link up your million dollar blog posts! Old, new and as many as you want are welcome on any topic of your choice!
Cheers! *Clinks glasses full of Bolly!
