Hello! I’m Ruth (you can learn a bit more about me on this page). Thank you for visiting my corner of the internet.
DorkyMum is a blog that’s about everything from parenting to politics, and poetry to photography. It’s somewhere to record the details of our family life, but also to write about the causes and campaigns that are dear to my heart. It’s somewhere to share photos and stories about the people and places I love.
If you’d like to explore the blog, there is a list of my most recent posts down the right hand side. Alternatively you can use the category tabs that run along the very bottom of each page.
I occasionally accept products to review on DorkyMum. I do not run advertising or sponsored posts.
Since I started writing DorkyMum in 2011, I have been a finalist in six national blog awards in the UK, and have twice been a speaker at the BritMums Live conference in London – once as part of a panel discussion about bloggers and charities, and once as a Blogger Keynote.
DorkyMum has been chosen as the Blog of the Week by both Netmums and Mumsnet, as well as featuring on WordPress Freshly Pressed and The Bloggess. My photography has been featured on Pioneer Woman, Manfrotto Imagine More, Shutter Sisters, and both BBC and Guardian Online.
