Today I have a fantastic guest post from Jo who blogs over at Tea and Cake for the Soul. Enjoy!
Terrifying, thought provoking and addictive reading for anyone who writes blogs, read blogs or lives a life on social media. The fluffy title of “The Mummy Bloggers” by Holly Wainright, gives no clue as to what’s to come in this fast paced, shocking read.
This story is about 3 mummy bloggers who have found huge success with their respective blogs and are competing for an award. All three bloggers are very different and certainly not friends, but each lady is connected to the other through their pasts.
Elle is the perfect Instagram mum blogging as The Stylish Mamma. Abi, known as The Green Diva (and other names) is an eco-friendly mum blogger. Leisel, works a full time job on top of blogging as The Working Mum.
The rise in popularity for blogs and Instagram influencers has made it possible for many mums and women to be able to work from home around their family. However, it’s not as easy and glamourous as it looks.
This story exposes the lengths that some people will go to, to get or show the perfect life. The extremes and character traits of some of the women in this story are really despicable and shocking, but that makes for compelling reading. I really couldn’t put this book down.
This book exposes everything that is wrong with social media and today’s world of comparison. When did life get so complicated?
This book was previously published in 2017 but has been re-released on 3 June 2019.
Please be aware that the vast majority of bloggers are nothing like these characters. I’m sure our three mummy bloggers set out with the best of intentions too. I’m quite happy to poodle along with my blog as it is 😉
