Introducing: the MAD edition

If you’re sick of the MAD Blog Awards already, you’ve come to the wrong place.

This week’s Introducing is all about the MAD Blog Awards, in celebration of the finalists being announced this week. And no, it has nothing to do with me being shortlisted in the Best MAD Baby Blog category. Ok, maybe a little bit.

Anyway, back to the task in hand. For those of you unfamiliar with Introducing, it’s a weekly feature I run sharing my limelight with three other blogs. It’s that simple.

My picks this week are all fellow finalists in the MAD Blog Awards, along with two former Introducing stars, Circus Queen and Northern Mummy with Southern Children. What can I say? I have good taste.

So, without further ado, stepping onto my stage this week are:

The 5 F’s

Shortlisted for MAD Blog Post of The Year, this is an amazing blog, packed full of beautifully brave writing and thought-provoking posts. There is also a brilliant weekly feature, Meal Planning Monday, where women like me can rip off another family’s weekly meals and pretend we are organised rather than domestically challenged.

Never Plain Jane

Shortlisted in the Best MAD Craft Blog category, this is a gorgeous blog with short, snappy posts that are incredibly easy on the eye. From baking to scrapbooking, bunting to garden decorations, there’s no shortage of inspirational ideas here. Plus the Rocky Road looks rather nice.

Jam and Cream

Shortlisted in the Best MAD Food Blog category, this blog should come with a warning: do not approach if all you have consumed in the last two hours is water and a rice cake.

I am now intensely hungry after perusing tasty posts about Spanish Rice and Spiced Indian Tomato Soup. In fact, it’s given me inspiration to attempt something other than pizza for my tea tomorrow night. Also, the blog comes from Cornwall which, as a graduate from Falmouth, is a big bonus for me.

Voting for the MAD Blog Awards is now open. Just visit their website where you can vote for any of the above blogs – and while you’re there I’m shortlisted in the Best MAD Baby Blog category. Just saying.
