There are bloggers and tweeters of all sorts in this world. We choose our own subjects and style and we have our own space in which to express ourselves. There are millions of us all doing it in our own ways. Mine is a small way.
Then, like in life, there are the ‘A list’ bloggers. These are the types who consistently win awards with their blogging, help people out for altruistic reasons and (sorry to sound cringe-worthy) ‘make a difference’. These last couple of days, three internationally famous (well if they are not yet, they ought to be) blogging vlogging tweeting photographing mummy superbeings have just been to Ghana with a team including Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall to celebrate 25 years of Comic Relief.
Comic Relief are clearly not silly, they have obviously seen how influential these type of super bloggers can be, and how supported and encouraged they would be in getting across the message in time for Red Nose Day. When the ‘secret thing’ was finally out in the open on Twitter, the three bloggers invited the rest of us to get involved by requesting a digital postcard from Ghana, which many of us duly did.
I was totally excited to receive mine last night, which read as below and featured a photograph taken at the Virtuous Women’s Bakery (the same one recently featured on the Great British Bake Off). From the others I have seen, each one of these postcards was different – you can find them all at the linky page at www.teamhonk.org. I recommend you visit this page to view all of the fantastic photographs and to learn more about the different places they visited and some of the people they met, whose lives have been improved thanks to Comic Relief. You can also find out more at the bloggers’ own sites www.mammasaurus.co.uk, www.aresidence.co.uk and www.mummybarrow.com.
I always love it if you share my posts, but this one especially so. 37 days to Red Nose Day! And let that be the last time you scoff at the mummy blogger!
