Commercial break : Share the blog love Sunday

Sunday; so sweet and innocent on the surface:

But dig a bit deeper and she'll pin you down and drain every last fluid oz of blood from your body:

This is one girl that doesn't like to share and most definitely NOT love.

Wait a minute! What's that you say? It's not Share the blog love, Sunday? It's Share the blog love Sunday?? So less killer vampire and more last day of the weekend? Right then.

For those of you who haven't heard of Share the blog love Sunday (as I hadn't until a couple of days ago), it was created by Tired Mummy Of Two who, each week, picks up to 10 blog posts from across the week and shares them with the readers of her blog.

It's great for 2 reasons. Firstly, as a blogger, it's fun to show everyone what you've been reading and enjoying through the week and secondly, it gives you, the reader, an opportunity to  explore other blogs that you may not have otherwise come across.

When Tired Mummy of Two invited other bloggers to share the love this week (as she has commitments this weekend that will prevent her from doing it), I jumped at the chance to get involved. So here it is, the blog posts that really stood out to me this week:

The day a police helicopter found me : an incredibly frank and open account of Mammasaurus' experience of Post Natel Depression

But why? : an entertaining anecdote from Bod for Tea which I'm sure every parent will identify with

The bishop's eye : a laugh out loud tale of the masticating Archdeacon and the chewing of breasts from Adventures of a Middle-Aged Matron

Jammin' session : when Mummy is a Gadget Geek used her breadmaker to make jam

Dealing with nerves : a typically exuberant and hilarious post by the delightful Mother Venting

7 secrets : a well written and charming insight into Margot and Barbara

Missy's second birthday : take a look at the incredible "Show Me Show Me" birthday cake made by ChrisTea and Cakes (then cruise on over to her post Hat a cake)

Why I feel better for wearing a necklace : a very moving post by Kate on Thin Ice about the many complex emotions that arose following her mum's death

Walk with me a while : take a virtual walk alongside Five Go Blogging courtesy of her beautiful photos

And finally, Welcome to the world Sam by Cafe Bebe. This was undoubtedly one of the biggest stories of the week amongst the blogging community on twitter, as we followed Karin from her admission to hospital right through to the birth of the delectable Sam. Congratulations Karin!!

If these aren't enough for you, why not pop on over to Tired Mummy Of Two where she's collated links to everyone who's gotten involved in Share the blog love Sunday. I'm sure you'll find plenty more posts to keep you busy x

Thanks for the mention. I had not heard of this initiative and am off to investigate further. I too have read and valued some of the other posts you mention too and intend to get to know you and your blog a lot better

A great idea missus and many thanks for mentioning little old me too not to mention for a great lust of reads!

Hello! What a lovely idea - I've not seen all of these blogs before, and as usual, time is limited, so it's very nice to have new reads without the usual trawl around because you've done all the hard work for me :)

Many thanks for including me in this too, amongst such great company!

That's funny we had quite a few of the same blog posts. Great minds think alike.
