Welcome back to another Mums’ List! I feel like I’m beginning to get into my stride with it now we’re into week 7 and spring 2014 is finally upon us.
However, it’s been brought to my attention that as a non-blogger, this list/linky might not make sense to you…
I started Mums’ List as a way of keeping track of what’s going on in my life; marking milestones that are easily forgotten. But also to share what I am learning about blogging because it is what I spend the majority of my time doing! The linky is just a way of inviting other bloggers to join in if they want to.
If you are a non-blogger, I do hope you can still get something out of it because it isn’t all about blogging and if you skip from Real Life to the Inspiration section there are links to non-blogger stuff I’ve found interesting, which you might enjoy too!
I hope that makes sense and you can enjoy my Mums’ List, and feel free to still join in the comments section – you don’t need a blog for that!
If you’re a blogger, please join in! The rules are here and then all you need to do is grab the badge below and make sure you visit and comment on some of your fellow Mums’ Listers!
Real Life – spring 2014
Looking back through the photos this week, I’ve had a great time as spring 2014 has arrived. Lots of doing things with my little fella, the sun has been out and we are beginning to enjoy our garden…so despite my low mood, we’ve been active and he’s been cheering me up with the help of some very new piglets at Broom House Farm.

That’s almost a smile! Reuben’s looking at a tractor…
Blog and Social Media
It seems Facebook has turned ugly on us bloggers. I’ve seen a real hit in my stats this week from Facebook, which, after google, is my main source of traffic. Fewer people are seeing my posts in their feeds, apparently the cap is 15% of your Likers. So any suggestions on how to get around this, or ways to improve the chances of people seeing your posts would be highly appreciated!
On a happier note, yesterday I joined in Mammasaurus’ How Does Your Garden Grow linky for my garden update – the people who link are so attentive and I got a whole bunch of lovely comments. So I’d highly recommend linking in if you have any garden updates!
On the blog this week I’ve been a bit heart on my sleeve. What I’ve done and felt is what I’ve written about. I thorough enjoyed doing the Family Tree Egg Hunt and Easter Sensory Box. The Sensory Box itself was a total revelation considering last week I couldn’t see the point in it. Now I love it! Because Reuben loves it…
I’m not so good at commenting on other people’s blogs. I struggle to find the time when I’m trying to write posts, do social media and all that jazz, so I’ve signed up for Love All Blogs Blog Club!! This is a big commitment as I will have to read and comment on 27 posts every week. But it will also do me the world of good to meet some new friends, get some inspiration and hopefully get some comments and new visitors in return!
If you didn’t see my post yesterday, you’ve got to read this article: The Crossroads of Should and Must
This is a great post for kids and adults alike (from my sis-in-law to be!): A Better Way to Say Sorry
How has spring 2014 been treating you? I love reading all the Mums’ Lists so do join in and I will share on twitter.
