I'm completely addicted to Blogs and have so many i subscribe to through bloglines. I find them really inspiring - especially when they are people i actually know (in an online sense anyway) so i thought it would be a good idea to start a blog roll - a list of GP bloggers. I know some people link to them in their taglines but i thought it would be good to have them in one place.
If you have a blog and would like to share it with us please post a link here along with what your blog is about.
Its mainly a family photo journal but our 'special interests' are : attachment parenting, art & craft, baby led weaning, baby signing, growing our own veg (getting chickens later this year and aim to be self sufficient-ish one day), vegetarian cooking, cloth nappies, toy making… i could go on but i'll stop here! lol
Nearly forgot, i also have http://homemakermonologues.blogspot.com/ but use it less. Hoping to pick it up more as i get more time when Phoebe's older. Its mainly for my ramblings about the above topics. I wanted somewhere seperate to ponder these issues without my relatives reading through all my thoughts, although i do link between the two so they can read them if they wish. I've got nothing to hide. ;D
I'm a blog fan too and have already added Gina's to my links on mine. However, here is the link to mine altho' I have to warn you that I started mine when I became a Christian two years ago to record that journey and as a result it's primarily about my faith but of late it's been used alot to record my home schooling venture with Ethan as well so it's a bit more general now….
Polly and Gina, i've been looking through your blogs and i feel like i have so much in common with you. I feel like someone has held up a mirror and shown me what our life could be like in the future if i learn to trust my instincts further and stop worrying what other people will say. Obviously i've already strayed from 'the norm' with attachment parenting, full term breastfeeding etc but i think if we choose to unschool we'll meet a lot of resistance. Reading blogs like yours really inspires me to follow my dreams. So thank you. :D
Sharon, I took a peek at your blog too. Although i'm not christian it is refreshing to find people who think so deeply about their lives and who have the courage and willpower to write so much and really reflect on things. My blog is mainly photos so i'm in awe of people who really write stuff!
I also have a blog, it's at http://www.lizpilley.co.uk/b2evolution/index.php?blog=2 (sorry not a snappy link to remember I know, but it is linked on my main website). It's about all sorts of things - our HE journey, being a mother, gardening, being green, my Pagan faith. Just ramblings really and I don;t get the chance to update as often as I'd like.

Don't have a blog of my own, but read quite a few.
Had a look at yours, Polly and Gina and they are both lovely, will be following them from now on. Your children look so very happy and contented
Mamauk - I really love your blog, you have such a lovely, happy family!
Denise, I love those socks too!! I soooo want to learn how to knit, but don't know any knitters!!
I don't have a blog but I love looking at other peoples, I think you learn quite a bit from them too. There is a small holding blog that I am enjoying reading too, it's fun seeing what she is planting and comparing them to how my own little plants are coming on! Maybe one day I might do a bit of blogging, but might have to do a bit of soft-focus camera work to hide the mess! ;D
Thanks so much to all for your lovely comments.
I adore reading blogs and have learnt so much from them, new knitting patterns, great book recommendations, celebrating festivals, charities to knit for and support and on and on .. so thank you to those that blog for sharing little peeks into your lifes.
Wodgehog - no excuse now you know a knitter
