You know when you are courted by politicians in the run up to the General Election that you are 'perhaps' slightly influential.
Mumsnet is the phenomenon that keeps on growing. Currently hitting over 40 million page views a month and 5 million visits, it its one of the busiest sites in the UK.
The Mumsnet Bloggers Network is a great way to get your blog out there - and a great place to find some amazing things to read. There are literally hundreds of updates a day - from cooking to child-rearing to beauty to relationships - you name it - it's on there - it's completely engrossing and makes a great change from the Sidebar of Shame if you are at your desk in your lunch hour!
And best of all for me - I'm the Official Inaugural Guest Beauty Blog Editor. Very honoured and thrilled to be asked.
For our first ever Beauty Blog round-up, this month we are discussing Winter skincare. Seasonal changes are the most testing time of year for the skin. Especially Autumn into Winter. Does your face suffer from that ‘tight’ feeling when you come in from the cold? Do you want to avoid that red/sore look for party season? Whose products do you like? Do you have any hand-me-down tips from previous generations? What are your favourite products? Why do you prefer some products to others? When do you make the switch over?
We’ll compile our favourite posts – whether they be informative, irreverent or just plain entertaining – and we can’t wait to get started. If you have a post you would like to submit you can tweet us at @mumsnetbloggers and @carolinehirons – please use #mnbeauty – we’ll RT you and link back to you.
If you're not yet a member of the bloggers network, sign up here: http://www.mumsnet.com/bloggers-network - you don’t need to be a beauty professional – or even a Mum – we’d love to hear from you.
