Top 5 blogs to support business mummy bloggers in 2011

Noramlly I do okay with blogging. I am a pretty confident lady and I know what my blogging is about and why I do it.

1) It’s a chance to share budgeting tips and build a community of parents who can support each other to to have they time they want with their children

2) It’s a way for me to work (through writing) that enables me to be with my children full time.

Lately I have needed some support as for various reasons balancing business and blogging has got tough. These sites have given me pointers, support and pause for thought and individuals involved have been BRILLIANT!  Sharing support networks has made all the difference to my direction and confidence. I hope it helps you.

1. Business plus Baby Helen Lindop is very centred and knows a lot about balancing business with babies. I have benefitted personally from her support amnd mentoring and she has a host of fab resources to offer mums going in to business and a great blog.

2. Become a Mumpreneur: Antonia Chitty, Erica Douglas and Carol Smith   I have started receiving their parent media contacts list and it is awesome and I have really expanded my reach through this. The blog is really inspiring too. Antonia’s books and Ericas blogging e-course are all brilliant support for new bloggers and family friendly business ideas and what Carol doesn’t know about  blogging isn’t worth knowing!

 

3. Grace Marshall  Grace is a life coach and she has loads of brilliant ideas to help mums in business and some fabulous e-books. Her recent blog posts include school holiday sanity stratergies and networking and marketing. Fantastic!

4. Blogger ed  Whilst this is not stricly for business mums but for mummy bloggers  it is a great resource. I find out about opportunities thorugh Sally Whittle’s blogger ed forum, get to  talk to other blogging mums and get tech advice and am able to ask many questions about comments, facebook, etc. I think it is brilliant. Like a virtual coffee break with co-workers. 

5. British Mummy Bloggers  Communities are important and on British Mummy Bloggers you can find yourself a community there are groups for Midland mums, Christian mums, single mums, working mums, mums with pink striped hair who have yellow ipads and twins (not really but you get my drift.)  I think it is heartening and useful as well as immensley supportive to belong to his club if you are a business mum that blogs. It showcases many opportiuunities too.

I really hope if you are a mum in business you will check these sites out and if you have any other sites to add to this list of  fab business blogs for mums please, please do so in comments.
