Today was a busy day and I didn't have much time for twitter. When I did have the opportunity to pop over to check my mentions, they were mostly competition entries and so I just scrolled through them not really paying attention.
And then I saw a tweet from @Tots100 about their Top Photography blogs, in which I was tagged.
I nipped over to see what it was all about and was over the moon to see that the lovely people at Tots 100 had named me as one of their Top 20 UK Photography Blogs!
I'm so pleased to see so many of my favourite photo bloggers listed alongside me: Coombe Mill, HPMcQ, A Party of Seven, Capture By Lucy, and Cakes Photos Life. In addition to these, Mummy Daddy Me, Dear Beautiful, Ar-Blog and Mammasaurus do a brilliant job at promoting photography through tutorials and photo linkies.
I've also discovered a whole host of other bloggers included in the list, and that's the great thing about the parent blogging world; it's so diverse! Peonies & Polaroids, Tigerlilly Quinn, Oh So Amelia, Mum 2 Baby Insomniac, Mama Owl, Slugs on the Refrigerator, Sorry About the Mess, Emily Beale, Little Ruby Loves, and Shutterflies.
Many thanks to Tots 100 for including me in this list of fabulous bloggers. I've been nominated by fellow bloggers and readers both last year and this year in both the Britmums BiBs and the MADs, was a finalist in both last year, and am a finalist in the MADs this year (thank you all who voted!). I didn't win last year and while it would be lovely to win this year, the competition is stiff and I honestly don't expect to win this year either. My photography isn't technically great, I don't know how to use the manual settings, and I don't have a new and swizzy camera. I do however love taking photographs using whatever camera I can get my hands on; I love framing a photograph, telling a story and capturing a moment.
And with The Boy, there's a lot of moments!
