In The Top 20!

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 BealeLittle 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!

    You've hit the nail on the head, photography for me is all about the story. A lot of my favourite photos have been captured with an iPhone. Well done 🙂

    Well done that lady! I was so chuffed for you and the other bloggers with an eye for a great photo. But your last sentence about telling a story and capturing a moment is why you are a winner! X

    Hello, I follow your blog on bloglovin and have recently read this list of top 20 photography bloggers. Well done to you and all the others for being so good with your photography.
    I have also started a blog recently and use photography for the blog but also want to get better at it. So finding other like-minded bloggers is something I was looking for. I am using your blog as my reference to get to know the other top 20.
    All blogs are great and you tell so much of yourselves.
    All the best

      Hello, thanks for your comment and for saying such kind things. I run a 365 linky; the 365 project is a photo a day, every day, for a year. Through the linky I like to support the other bloggers' photographs and provide a little guidance as to how to improve, and give motivation to keep going on a really tough project. It's great to hear from someone who enjoys the photographs I put up, and those of other bloggers. Thank you so much for your comment, it's kind words like this that make it all worthwhile!

    I can't see the list from your link but it is very well deserved. Your photos are always wonderful and you are so supportive of other bloggers trying to take decent pics.
