The picture above is from the Oh So Amelia blog that we read and it has lots of useful ideas and tips. Working from home makes it difficult for people to maintain a blog when it is not how you make your living. All you really want to do is write about your thoughts and put them out into the world to see if people agree or not. I have often had long periods when I don't blog due to work or the life we parents all have where by we put our kids first. My experience with blogs is a bit patchy as I have struggled for ideas on what to blog about. I mean, it is easy enough to blog on December 1st about the Christmas Tree going up but I had no idea what to do 2nd December. I ended up having a go at a cooking vlog. It sucked :) I need help. I thought that others have been blogging for ages and must have had many topics to discuss so I googled for ideas!
A great list from the Oh so Amelia blog is what I have pasted here to give people a chance to think about great ideas for blog posts. Check the link for Oh so Amelia's Blog post which gives 70 ideas which I have pasted below so there is plenty to go from.

What are your favourite types of blog and Vlogs? What inspires you and what annoys you when looking at parenting blogs.
Our favourite youtube Vlog site is the sacconejolys which is a parenting/family Vlog about a lovely Irish couple living in the UK.
Our twin 4 year old boys favourite is ToyLAB TV where a father and son have a make believe world where the father is making wonderful childlike action videos based on Marvel, Jurassic Park and all the stuff little kids love. He is basically acting the fool to make his son happy. He is a great father. Watching these vlogs takes us away from the day to day and who doesn't need that once in a while?
So I hope you enjoyed my post. If you would take a look at our baby shoes website it would be most appreciated. We feel that we have a baby brand which is very intune with the family blogosphere, we also sell our baby shoes in independent baby boutiques in the UK and abroad. The image below is of our Night Sky Baby Shoe which like all of our baby shoes is soft leather with an elasticated ankle.
It is important to choose the right shoe size when purchasing our soft leather baby shoes for your child’s feet to grow healthily and happily.
Please note: We are not able to provide free returns due to size of a pair which have been purchased as the size indicator is a guide. Please use the measurement guide and chart below to determine the size you need for your baby before making a purchase.
To measure your little one's feet this is what HippoFeet recommend:
You will need a piece of paper, a pencil and a ruler.
Place the feet of your little one on a piece of paper and draw around their feet with a pencil. It is best to repeat the process for both feet to get an accurate measurement. The bigger foot will decide the final measurement.
Measure the foot from the heel to the highest point of their toe. Make sure the heel is perfectly aligned on the paper and the toes are perfectly flat. This will indicate your foot length. When choosing the bigger foot for the final measurement, we recommend including an extra 1cm for growth space. You will also need to take into consideration the measurements if your child is wearing socks and also for their foot to stand freely.
