Your Name:

Gemma Collins

Blog Name:

Sunshine On A Cloudy Day

What are the sexes and ages of your children?:

I have one son who is 3 years old.

What got you into parent blogging?:

I got into blogging back in September 2013 due to having always followed for years. I was recovering from surgery thinking I wanted to do something with a hobby of mine (writing!) so thought what better way to record my life and write it all down.

What is your top parenting tip to share with our readers? Can be on any topic for little ones :-) (under 8s):

Hmm a little bit of advice.. don’t be annoyed when things don’t go your way – unfortunately that is life! Consistency and perseverance is
key to get through :)

Can you share a parenting advice post with us from your blog too; your favourite one? Why do you like this post? Please include the link for us.:

I am going to be cheeky and give two as I have lived it from both sides as a working mummy and an unemployed mummy. These are my
favourite posts of advice as it is good to see someone who has had it from both views and read their experiences on a topic all mothers
debate, working or stay at home?

Who’s your favourite parent blogger at the moment and why? Please include a link to their blog home page.:

One? Ahh too hard to choose, I have far too many favourites. I spend all my free time reading parent blogs :)

Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parenting magazine! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!
