Unless you’ve been living under a digital rock, you’ve most likely noticed that mums have taken over the blog-o-sphere in full force. Although they haven’t quite achieved rock star status (yet), the UK’s mum bloggers are a power-packed group of witty, wordy women who are influencing the way we think about parenting, children and motherhood.
In honor of Mothering Sunday, Fourerr is going to take a look at the UK’s ten most influential mum bloggers. We are highlighting those feminine wordsmiths who have an edge, who say it like it really is, who push themselves and their readers toward new ideas and who simply make for a great read. Thank you mum bloggers, and thank you to mothers everywhere: because, without you, where would any of us be? Happy Mothering Sunday!
