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.

So to start here's mine:

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 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.  wink  ;D

Ok, who's next?

Hi Girls….

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….

Happy to share…....

love to all

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!

Our Blog:

I also have a  blog, it's at (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.

How cool are those socks Mama4?  ;D

Beautiful photos Denise, look forward to reading/seeing more  smile

Mamauk - I really love your blog, you have such a lovely, happy family!   smile

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
