brilliant blog posts-Honest Mum

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog and what a few weeks it’s been with holidays, heatwaves and trying to make deadlines when the sun is pouring in (so hard)!

Anyroad, welcome back to #brilliantblogposts, I’ve recently returned from a fabulous holiday in Portugal with my Mum so have blogged about our girly break at the Martinhal Resort this week, so please do head on over for a slice of sunshine in the Algarve.

Also, rather excitingly, today I made the front page of the Yorkshire Evening Post on making the finals of the MAD Blog Award in the food category.

It’s the biggest paper in Yorkshire reaching hundreds of thousands of readers a day and 80k online alone a day, so it was all rather wonderful and overwhelming (especially as the ladies working in Tesco whooped when they saw me).

You can read the online piece HERE.

My Dad actually called me up bursting with excitement this morning to tell me as I wasn’t sure it was even going to be covered! Making my parents proud (and my kids of course) makes all the hard work, worth it.

A little collage from the coverage-

Anyway enough about me, this linky is about you lovely lot- as usual please do come link up your posts, tell your friends (heck even tell your folks)…and add as many posts as you like.

All I ask is you kindly link back to my blog or add my badge to each post you link up. and do go show some love to other linkers (and me, your host of course) by commenting on a handful of posts at least.

The more you comment on, the greater the love you receive and the more traffic that will come your way!

Thanks to you all for making this one happening blog party with 250-300 links ups each week. I have no words!!!!

I seriously love discovering new blogs and bloggers each and every time I host Brilliant Blog Posts and always come away feeling so inspired, uplifted, moved and entertained by the sheer talent this diverse blogging community has to offer.

Linkers literally head here from all over the world with regulars from Australia, America and of course good ol’ Blighty too! Yay!

Enjoy people!

Until next week

    It’s really nice to see bloggers being recognised in the local media for their good work. It can feel that online and offline audiences are quite separate and your Tesco experience really shows how traditional media can help bloggers broaden their reach.

      THanks Dan, traditional media can be great and the local paper’s reach is wonderful, it’s around 100k a day and their site is 80k so really grateful to them 🙂

    Congratulations on the newspaper article. I think sometimes seeing things in print rather than on the internet still makes our parents more proud!

    Well done! You deserve it and such a lovely photo of you. When I saw it on FB this morning I thought of your parents and how they must be absolutely bursting with happiness and pride. Such a lovely feeling being proud of your kids – I never did understand that till I had my own. Thanks for this xx
