Hello and welcome back to my top 5 blog posts from the KCACOLS Linky. This is my third collection and I include some fab posts this week! There are always so many and it’s hard to pick a favourite. Posts that resonated with me and I enjoyed reading are the following:
I’m loving 20 ways you know you have a toddler by Tina at Adventures of Mummy and Me. I’m loving this post because it is all so true! I have hundreds of odd socks, coat pockets stuffed with half eaten everything and yes, we open most our food before we pay for it in Morrisons. Oops. Last week I had to open up our pack of carrots! I draw the line at opening yogurts – blinking wait little man!
Next up is a post that I really thought was so open and honest and it provides a real insight into something I have zero experience with. Namely living in a hostel. Kat at Candy Floss Dreams writes about her experience of spending ten months there in this post Hostel Living, What it’s Like. This post is a must-read and provides hope for anyone finding themselves in a similar situation.
There were a lot of goal posts linked up this week. And not surprisingly as it was the first KCACOLS after the New Year. My favourite goal post was this one by Tim at Slouching Towards Thatcham – My 2017 goals – and why I’m not worried about boosting my blog stats.
I enjoyed reading this because I don’t set any particular targets either for the blog. I love Tim’s attitude and honesty and it sounds like he has fab goals for 2017. I particularly like his mention about being a good dad and husband. I feel like I spend too much time stuck to my phone, when I could spend those extra minutes with my family. His post reminded me of why I started blogging in the first place.
Next in my top 5 is a post by Mummy Tam Tam, detailing why she chose Montessori for her children. This is a schooling method which I explored with my colleague who lives in the USA. I interviewed her last year as she sends both her children to a Montessori school in the States. You can read this interview here if you want more information. It actually echoes a lot of the observations that Tamar at Mummy Tam Tam talks about – independence, autonomy and encouragement.
And finally in my top five this week is a blog post by Jodie at Dear Little Daisy – How to take better photos for your blog. I really liked her honest account of her journey to improve her blog photography. I feel like I’m there right now – playing around and experimenting with lighting and backgrounds. I found it inspiring how far Jodie has come and will definitely take her tips on board : )
So there we are. My top 5 KCACOLS posts to kick off the new year! Did you read any of these? What were your favourite posts on KCACOLS? I can’t wait to host this weekend with the lovely Franca, Maria at Suburban Mum and Kirsty at Winnettes. Will you join us?!
