What I Read 9

Doing my What I Read Roundup last week gave me a chance to read lots more posts. Here's more sharing for you, please do take a moment to visit these other sites and give the posts a read. We could all do with a little comment love sometimes.

What I Read 9 | Morgan's Milieu: #WhatIRead Badge

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 9: Aby of You Baby Me Mummy thanks a stranger for their kindness in an open letter.

After a rough day Aby took her daughter to the supermarket in the hope things might brighten. A tantrum ensued and Aby thought her day couldn't get any worse, then a kind stranger offered support. Aby decided to thank the stranger by writing an open letter to them on her blog. Sometimes just one kind word can turn someone's day around.

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 9: Nadine Hill, she's exhausted and has been for 2 decades!

While enjoying some well-deserved 'me' time and a hot cuppa Nadine realises she has been exhausted for two decades! As a young woman she had a busy job and liked to go out and then she settled and had children. Over the years she has watched her children grow and become more self-reliant and she is now able to enjoy the occasional nap on the sofa. Nadine, you deserve it - enjoy that nap.

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 9: Charlene, aka Moderate Mum, offers advice to a new dad.

Moderate Mum offers sound advice to a new dad in this post. The dad, Ben Wakeling, asks a question and I simply loved Charlene's advice. Every baby has their favourite parent for a time but sooner or later the novelty wears off and they switch their allegiance.

I stumbled across a great Dad Blog this week over at dadwhoblogs.co.uk. In his post, It's not You... It's Your Dad, he wonders if his son is missing out on playdates because of him. As a stay-at-home-dad he is in the playground every day, picking up his child from school. He happened to overhear a conversation about a playdate and began to question whether it's his fault that his child is missing out. Do you have any advice to offer him?

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 9: Tim from Slouching Towards Thatcham gives advice from his 8 years of blogging.

Tim from Slouching Towards Thatcham offers us some blogging advice; 8 blogging lessons he's learned in his 8 years of blogging. One of my favourites is Stats aren't Everything but there are plenty more. He has some wise words and I'd recommend listening. 

While we're on blogging tips and advice I thought I'd share this post on copyblogger.com. The 8 types of images that increase the psychological impact of your content lists some great ways to engage with your readers. I have bookmarked this site and will refer to it in the future.

On the subject of images another post I found was this: 25 Awesome sites with stunning free stock photos. Another list post but this one tells you where you can find some fabulous photos you can use for your blog. I love some of these sites and often use Unsplash.

Enjoy reading and I'll see you again next week for more sharing.
