TOP LONDON MUMMY BLOGGERS
We recently asked our readers to vote for their favourite London Mummy Bloggers – this group of women share the highs and lows of Motherhood and invite us into their new found roles – even if it is a friendship over the warm glow of the computer screen – never underestimate the power of a comment, a tweet or a virtual hug.
Topics of blogs vary from personal testimonials to craft projects…but one theme remains constant – raising a child in London and the wonders the city has to offer. View the other nominees here, here, here and here.
Ruth Hill and Loretta Andrews are two friends who met during first-time mums’ antenatal classes in 2009. They are passionate about being the best mums they can be but also not losing their identity as women in the process. The question they ask and attempt to tackle with MTAM is, what can you realistically do in the busy world of a mum to fulfil both criteria of mum and woman? They firmly believe you can have both! MTAM aims to help mums do just that.

Annabelle lives in Shepherds Bush with her three girls, husband and cat. After a ten year crazy career in advertising, she gave it all up to be bossed about by her girls. She started The Bush Babies in 2007 and writes about the highs and lows of parenthood and raising three little girls in London.

NOT A NOTTING HILL MUM by ?
The idea of my blog was to write a mildly satirical look at Notting Hill life and write a diary of motherhood surrounded by such models of perfection – as well as give some useful tips on fun places to go in the neighbourhood. But then I discovered other bloggers and Britmums and got more involved in the blogging community. The blog is written anonymously under the pen name Jane Austin and hence the picture is of a mannequin.

METROPOLITAN MUM by Deborah
I started the Metropolitan Mum blog in early February 2009, heavily pregnant and generally overwhelmed by it all. Swamped by hormones and at times freaked out by the prospect of being a ‘responsible’ parent soon, I needed a vent. So here I am. In my former life I worked as an online editor for a youth magazine and for a German newspaper. That was before I finished my degree in economics and ended up in the grey corporate world of financial services on floor #19. Becoming a mother put my feet back on the ground and my fingers back on the keyboard.
