Mummy blogs to follow

This blog post is by Nicola Baird sharing ideas about thrifty, creative and eco-friendly ways to raise children. This post looks at the mommy bloggers of the US… For more info about my book Homemade Kids, with lots of ideas about parenting, click here.

Turns out mummy bloggers in the US are big news. They are clever, sassy, well-heeled (often with tractors too), witty and moneyed. Just in case you don’t follow the American elite of mummy blogs, then have a look here at the top 10.

Over to you
What are the blogs you like? My favourite UK ones at the moment are:

http://myzerowaste.com – all about cutting waste from a real genius. Blackened bananas go into crumble, all fruit and veg is bought naked (you know without wrapping on) and she has loads of genius ideas.

http://loveoutdoorplay.net – constant guest posts all about giving children a lot more freedom

http://greenmummy.blogspot.co.uk – full of info and joy

http://londinimum.wordpress.com/ – written by a journalist with two young children

http://vanessa-chapman.com – working mum who squeezes an awful lot into her life

http://thinlyspread.co.uk/ – actually it has a lot of sponsored posts, so my feelings are mixed, but the mum has four kids and so a vast range of experience. She seems very good at gardening, cooking and blogging.

http://karin-greenandgenerous.blogspot.co.uk/ – older kids (grown up maybe) and lots of ideas about good green and generous use of your time.

I also like these from the US

http://averagechildhood.wordpress.com – strange take on parenting by a zombie fan

http://beneaththerowantree.blogspot.co.uk/ – stunning craft ideas

http://noimpactman.typepad.com/ – what started as an experiment in zero-carbon use has turned into a life’s work. He’s now running for congress!
