There I was chugging along with my new little toy just spouting whatever came into my mind. Then along came Follow A Newbie Friday! What a fabulous idea this little linky is, the brainchild of the wonderful Slummy Mummy over at From Slummy To Yummy Mummy. It’s a fantastic soapbox for us new bloggers to stand on and shout out loud that we’re here and we’re doing good stuff, thank you very much!
Starting a blog is a minefield enough and you tend to feel a bit like a small fish in a bigger than big pond. Follow a Newbie Friday allows us to introduce ourselves and tell you what we do. You can find out more about Follow a Newbie Friday here.
I started blogging because 1) I like writing 2) I felt like I’d lost myself a bit after having a bambina and 3) I wanted a new hobby, something for me to take care of.
Every week we will showcase some glorious new talent and this weeks little jewellery box consists of the following, all new, all sparkly, little gems:
IlMondodiIngrid is a lovely blog written in the eyes of 6 year old Ingrid. She’s the daughter of English/Italian parents and her blog documents the world in her eyes – genius idea. Follow Ingrid on Twitter @IlMondodiIngrid

This was my first week at work after maternity leave so I have unashamedly not had the time in the evenings to seek new bloggers. I have therefore, very rudely and very brazenly “borrowed” this list from Mummys Little Monkey – other than Ingrid whom I added. As the week goes on I will keep an eagle eye out for other newbies and make a conscious effort to lure them into the lusciousness of Follow A Newbie Friday.
Now, I better dash… I’ve got about 25 new blogs to read!
Ps, if you 1) read and 2) like any of these wonderful ladies work (how very sexist of me, Im assuming they are all women!) do follow them/us on Twitter, Facebook, subscribe by email to their blogs and drop by once in a while a lovely comment – your comments inspire us to write more and well, this is the point of blogging.
Pps, If Ive missed you out, Im really really really sorry – send me a message, slap my hands and I’ll include you next time round…forgive me, yeah?! :)
Grazie tutti! xx
