Post Comment Love & Blogger Showcase 25-28 August 2017

Hello there and welcome to this week's Post Comment Love. If you were here last week, it was great to see you and if you're new here this week you're also very welcome. Morgan and I just know you'll find some great posts linked up this week, and maybe even some new-to-you blogs too. Please do stop by some of the other posts linked up so everyone benefits from our fabulous linky community love.

This week has been one of those weeks where I'm sure I've done loads but if you were to ask me what I'm not sure I could tell you. There's been gardening, allotmenteering, and a bit of sting (ouch!), lots of lovely food, some blog post and friends along the way. It's been busy at work, but there's always something to do. 

I have noticed it's getting darker earlier though this week and that's not so welcome. In the mornings too our living room is darker and with no natural light of its own, it's not surprising. Let's hope that's a passing blip and the sun hangs around for a bit longer.

My photo this week is one from the archives, and my visit to the London Design Festival last September. It was held at the Truman Brewery in Shoreditch - and the building was as fascinating as some of the exhibits. This one caught my eye then, and again as I scrolled through my photos this week.

Bloggers Showcase: Bryony from Rebel Momma



1. Who are you? 

I'm Bryony aka RebelMomma; I'm mum to a 16 month old Frankie-Monster. Trying to navigate my way through this very new life and reconcile the old me with the new me.  

2. How did you discover blogs/blogging?

I started reading blogs and watching blogs when I was pregnant as I found them a lot more relatable than "official" information. 

3. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging after being diagnosed with postnatal depression when my son was about 4 months old. It was and still is my therapy. 

4. What do you find most challenging?

I find writing consistently the most challenging, I either seem to write non stop for a week or I hit a wall for a month. 

5. What is your favourite topic to write about?

I've tried to keep the blog quite personal but I love writing anyway so just the writing itself is my favourite. 

6. Are you blogging for fun or do you have goals?

Not even for fun, it's a need in me to write and it helps keep my PND at bay by getting my thoughts out of my head. 

7. What is your favourite thing about blogging?

I've had friends get in touch to thank me for saying things that they had struggled to verbalise. 

8. Have you ever attended a blogging conference?

I haven't ever been to a blogging conference. 

9. What are your three best posts?

1. Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes. 

2. Baby daddy

3. Knowing me, knowing you (A-ha).

10. Describe yourself in three words.

Contradictory; honest; loyal.

11. Are you a tea and biscuits or coffee and cake person?

Do I actually have to choose? Tea and biscuits. 

12. What's your idea of a perfect night out?

I can't remember what a night out is like! But it would be me, my boyfriend, Jagerbombs and dancing. Lots and lots of dancing. 

13. Your perfect night in?

Pizza, wine, Guardians of the Galaxy. 

14. What would your best friend/OH/mum say is your best quality? 

Probably my resilience. I've had a tough year.
