Recently I have realised that on the 3 nights that G is away every week my TV watching has dramatically decreased! After I have put Little Man to bed I tend to eat my dinner whilst watching a trashy soap and the TV watching ends there. Instead I grab my tablet, head up to bed and spend a good couple of hours (sometime a lot more!) watching vlogs. I can’t get enough of them.
I especially like daily or weekly vlogs. I love watching people especially Mums just living their lives, in fact the more normal daily life included in them the better! I don’t know what it is about watching normal people do normal stuff but it’s addictive viewing. I guess it is like a reality show but actual reality rather than scary Big Brother type characters running around a house shouting, screaming and quite often naked!
I actually started watching Vlogs when I went onto YouTube to see what all the fuss about Zoella was. I enjoy watching her vlogs, especially her hauls but she is 24, living in Brighton in a rather fancy house with Alfie Deyes, a pug and at the moment being made into a Madame Tussards waxwork model. Not hugely relatable when I am pushing 30, living in the West Midlands in a average sized house with a husband, toddler and 3 fish. Since I have started blogging and entered the parenting blogging community I have found lots of parenting vlogs to watch and actually prefer these now to the Zoella/Tanya Burr/Sprinkle of Glitter vlogs although they do still seem to be my guilty pleasure.
I have tried vlogging a couple of times but I don’t feel very comfortable in front of the camera so am sticking to watching them rather than making them at the moment. If you are looking for something to watch then I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite vloggers at the moment. Here they are.
- Mrs Meldrum
- The Knott Bump & Us
- Brummy Mummy of 2
- The Giggles Family
- Dear Twans, With Love
- Natasha Bailie
- My Two Mums
Go and show these YouTube channels some love, they are well worth a look. Apologies now if you get addicted like me!!
I would love to hear of any good vloggers that I’m missing out on so please let me know if you watch any that I haven’t mentioned.
Have a lovely day.
