A letter to (blogger) friends

As I woke up this morning and wanting to write a new post I thought I would write a letter to some (blogger) friends showing my appreciation for their support over the last months while I took my hiatus from blogging.

If you haven’t noticed I put (blogger) in parentheses and that’s just so you all know they do hail from the blogging world. To me they are simply just friends as they have been in the background checking up on me frequently and encouraging me to come back to blogging. These (blogger) friends are an amazing bunch.

Prabs of Absolutely Prabulous – Thank you for being there and encouraging me to make whatever decision to blog or not to blog. Or just listening to me rant lol

Harps of Baby Brain Memoirs and Baby Brain Apparel – Thank you for just being there and encouraging me simply by telling me that I would be missed in blogging and to just take my time and comeback when I was ready.

Laura of Life With Baby Kicks – Thank you for being there and simply telling me to just write when it feels right and to not bother until then and just checking in on me with a friendly “hello”.

Trista of Domesticated Momster – Thank you for being there and I remember you saying to me in only the way you would put it to me “write because you want to write other than that f**k it”.

John of Dad Blog UK – Thank you for being there and asking once in a while if I was going to blog again? Also telling me that I would be missed.

Becky of Cuddle Fairy – Thank you for being there and encouraging me to come back when I was well ready to write again and to keep me feeling in the loop of the blogging world by tagging me in posts.

Emma of The Joy Of Five – Thank you for being there and worried enough about me to message me to see how I was doing while on my blogging break and encouraging me to come back to blogging.

Martyn of Inside Martyns Thoughts – Thank you for being there and having some of those long winded conversations with me about blogging.

Natasha of Mama Duck Quacks – Thank you for being there and checking in on me and making sure I was alright and encouraging me to come back to blogging when I was ready.

Debra of Random Musings – Thank for being there and taking the time to see how I was doing and asking if I was going to blog again? Your words of encouragement to go back to blogging were well received.


These are (blogger) friends that have simply just become friends I appreciate them all for caring and taking the time out of their busy lives to check in on me and make sure I was doing ok and still alive. Without these friends I am sure that my blog would have just died a slow death until one day it disappeared and MDP would be no longer. To you all I want to say thank you for being there and not letting me disappear in oblivion and encouraging me to continue blogging. Happy New Years to you all!

Honoured to get a mention (and you know I’d have told you off if I didn’t don’t you? 😁😅). And I agree about the blogger label bring in brackets as we’re friends pure and simple. Love you loads blog husband xx

Becky, Cuddle Fairy

I’m so glad you are back to blogging Rod! You have been missed. I feel the same way about you & my other blogging friends – you are all friends of mine now. It’s a really amazing support group. Your blog is looking great by the way! Thanks for the tag 🙂


Remember that it’s always ok to take a break when you need to. I think we as bloggers all suffer from time to time with blogger burnout. Glad to have you back and thank you for the mention and sweet words 😘🙃


Thnaks for the mention Rod and glad to see you’re back to blogging. Loving the new look site too! Sorry it took me a while to reply. 2015 ended on an exceptionally busy note. I thought 2016 would be a little quieter but no such luck! Thanks also for all your social sharing. It’s something I have to get much better at! Look forward to reading more of your posts in the weeks and months ot come.


I’ve just seen this so I’m kind of late (as usual lol). Thanks for the mention, its really good to have you back 🙂 I think Trista wins for best advice ever haha 🙂
