Firstly – HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE everyone! I bet if you have kids they are all starting to get excited now!
Last Friday on PoCoLo I promised some exciting news today. Well I am pleased to announce ‘kidGLloves’ – a brand new blog being launched today. This is a venture between me and Cathie Boyle from Wicked World of Lucas and our two children, Grace, aged nearly 7 (next week) and Lucas aged 5 (hence the GL in the middle of the title – see what we did there?!). This is also with a bit of help from Jaime at The Olivers Madhouse with her children Beth, aged 12 and Joshua, aged nearly 3. It means that we can cater for kids of all ages!
We wanted the kids to be able to give an honest opinion on reviews and life in general. So that they have a voice. As a Mum blogger, I tend to say what I think but Grace doesn’t really get a look in and we felt that by starting this site that people will get a child’s honesty (which can sometimes be far too blunt but all too true!). Lucas will still be giving advice on ‘Dear Lucas’ and Grace will be generally airing her (sometimes all too grown-up) views on stuff and things!
As well as their opinions, they already have their own linky. Mini Creations is a very straightforward photo linky running every Wednesday so you can keep a record of the things your kids have done and not feel guilty when you throw them away! You will be able to explain what it is, put a date on it as well as the age of your child and then it will go on your blog and the kidGLloves linky for all time as a memory for you to treasure.
In amongst the kids opinions is also that of Ash the Dog. In his column ‘Dogged Determination’ he shall be sharing his views on life with humans, walks and different exciting days out. I rather like his new name for me too! 🙂
Finally there is also a chance for you and your children and pets to get involved! If you would like your child to join the GL Gang and share their views and opinions – in their words – on the kidGLloves website, then just email email@example.com and have a look at the Join the GL Gang page for more details.
We have had a lot of interest in the new site and have lots of exciting projects lined up for 2014! Come and be a part of it all – we love sharing 🙂
