Inspirational Parents #16 – Agent Spitback

I have been reading Agent Spitback‘s blog for quite a while now. What I love about it is that I never know what to expect when I go onto her site for a read. When it comes to inspirational parents, this lady has it all. She is one of the most amazing writers I know and alongside her fabulous blog and being a mum, she finds the time to be hilarious on social media. Through both her blog and her social media, she makes everyone feel that the bad days as a mum are okay – and reminds us not…

The latest in my inspirational parents series features Kate Pinson, the brains behind brand new, ethically sourced flowers subscription box, Grace and Bloom. Kate set up Grace and Bloom earlier this year, after her daughter Grace became critically ill. Kate needed to spend more time caring for Grace, so she followed her passion to set up her own business. Thanks to Kate for taking the time to answer my taxing interview questions!  1. Tell me about the most unexpected change to you as a person or to your life since becoming a parent?

Inspirational Parents #14

For the latest in my Inspirational Parents series, I’m really honoured to feature a mum, and award-nominated author – Jemma Wayne. She has recently released her latest novel, Chains of Sand. 1. Tell me about the most unexpected change to you as a person or to your life since becoming a parent? Discovering that I can survive on an average of five hours sleep is definitely up there!

Inspirational Parents #12

When I first started blogging, it was rather a solitary affair. I used to write and publish posts, share the odd post on social media and then slink away, not really engaging with the blogging community. That was until I started chatting to a fellow blogger, who made me realise that there was more to blogging than just writing and hitting publish. That blogger was Natalie from The Diary of an Unexpectant Mother. Since then, she has become a friend who I chat to regularly via social media although we’ve actually never met. It wasn’t until recently that I realised…

Inspirational Parents #11

The latest in my Inspirational Parent series comes from Stevie at A Cornish Mum blog. I have always admired the way Stevie has come hurtling into the blogging scene and flying up the rankings into the Top 100 at breakneck speed. This is all despite the challenges she has had to face personally during the past few years. Stevie is amazing at covering important issues like Type 1 Diabetes in a way that makes people sit up and listen. She also captures the beautiful Cornish countryside in her photos and has loads of fun competitions. If you don’t already follow her,…
