A New Blog

Today Big-P and I are launching our brand new weblog, which we have named “Kiddley“.
We will be blogging every day about good ideas for you and your kids – activities, games, crafts, tips, gear to covet and projects to share.

Perhaps this is the maddest thing to be doing when we have about three weeks left before we have our second child, but sometimes that’s just the way it pans out.

You will notice that this is what you would call a “commercial” blog – one that we are happily placing advertising all over. I love blogging and spend lots of time on it and I would like to see if I can start making a little money out of the energy it takes – because it fits in so nicely with being a mother while freelance work is sometimes harder to manage. I didn’t want to put any more ads on loobylu than I already have so I thought the best thing to do would be to is to start afresh with a new blog and a new audience (although hopefully there is a bit of cross-over), and what topic is closer to my heart at the moment than things to do with kids?

If you have an idea you would like to submit, or a product you would like us to consider for review or if you would like to advertise on the site, please follow all the relevant links and we will be able to help you out.

I am excited about this! I hope you like it.
