Blowing my own Trumpet

Toot Toot!

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of me warming up, because I’m about to blow my own trumpet for a minute. I’ve had an exciting writing week off-blog, and just wanted to share a few links with you.

Lovely Michelle at Mummy from the Heart is running a New Bloggers Fortnight over at hers, and I had a guest post on there earlier in the week, busting some blog myths.

The lovely ladies at BritMums have asked me to edit a monthly roundup of the best political posts in blogland. If you write anything over the next few weeks that you think might fit in the March roundup, please drop me a note!

I’m also really pleased that Black Dog Tribe – Ruby Wax’s new mental health support site – asked me to write them a piece about postnatal depression.

My original, very long, PND piece was republished on Offbeat Mama this week, and then I got an email last night saying that BlogHer had chosen my piece about online communities to be a featured post on their Tech section.

So a very exciting and busy week! My proudest achievement this week though is that Save the Children chose my post about the hunger charter petition hand-in to be featured in their supporter newsletter, which apparently went out to a ridiculous number of people! How cool is this?!

No Child born to die

Next Wednesday – February 15th – sees the launch of the next phase of Save the Children’s No Child Born to Die campaign, and it’s going to focus on nutrition. Restaurant critic Jay Rayner and baking blogger The Pink Whisk are heading off to Rwanda to witness the effects of malnutrition, and Save the Children will be launching a new report called A Life Free From Hunger. You can follow Jay on Twitter here, and Ruth Clemens (The Pink Whisk) here, and keep an eye on the Save the Children website for more details.

And as for us… we are off on a DorkyFamily holiday next week (whoop whoop!), so I will be turning off the computer. There are going to be some brilliant guest posts going up all week though, so please pop back for a look and leave some comments for my lovely guest posters.

Happy weekend!
