Blogging is a funny old thing isn’t it? You start off writing very much for yourself and all the blogging advice out there encourages you to stick to what you’re really passionate about. I totally agree with this; not only is it easier to write about what you love, but I think it really shows through in the quality of the content. On the other hand, I think it’s really important to take on board the reactions of your audience. What has struck a chord? What are people enjoying?
We’ve loved finding out which posts have been most popular this year – here’s a look back at the top 10. I’m glad to say most of my favourites are in there.
It’s easy to see why this post resonated with so many people – including me. I was so sensitive as a new mother – questions one and two in particular were guaranteed to send me over the edge!

Feeding George is a real struggle at the moment, so these pancakes regularly come in handy as a way to sneak vegetables into him (and myself!). Don’t worry, you’d never know they were healthy.
I’ve attended a LOT of 30th birthdays this year – here’s my hard-won advice for buying your friends fabulous presents.
I thought Rose was very brave to write this powerfully frank post and everyone should read it. We’d love to hear what you thought of it.
This bargainous face brush was a great find by Nicky – a budget alternative to the Clarisonic at just £6.50!
I always have time for what Rose has to say about TV – especially if it involves the Gilmore Girls. Here, she explains what some of her favourite TV characters have taught her about friendship.
I can’t resist a good birth story 🙂 Nicky shares the preparations she made, the expectations she had, and what really happened…
I’ve been on the once-weekly hair-washing bandwagon for a long time now, but I know how unthinkable the prospect was for Rose, so I enjoyed reading about her experience.
