I Am A Life Blogger

Are you looking for an alternative to the Mummy Blogger tag? Or do you write about similar things to Mummy Bloggers (i.e. – a bit of everything), but you’re not a mother and the tag doesn’t fit? Or are you sick of trying to remember to spell Mummy or Mommy depending on your audience?

Recently I wrote about the discussion over the Mummy Blogger name and how most people who fit into the ‘Mummy Blogger’ category post about a lot more than just their children. I worked it over in my head a bit and decided on a new title:

Life Blogger

This title struck a bit of a chord with some readers, who declared they too felt like Life Bloggers. And it was suggested that they might like a button to declare their status. So, with a bit of help from This Charming Mum, I created a button

I Am A Life Blogger - Adventures of a Subversive Reader
<div align="center"><a href="https://subversivereader.wordpress.com/2012/10/30/i-am-a-life-blogger/" title="I Am A Life Blogger - Adventures of a Subversive Reader"><img src="http://i1338.photobucket.com/albums/o682/SubversiveRead/LifeBloggerButton1.jpg" alt="I Am A Life Blogger - Adventures of a Subversive Reader" style="border:none;" /></a></div>


Now, if I’ve done this right, you should be able to put the button on your own blog to proclaim yourself a Life Blogger. If I get more adventurous later, I might even make a range of buttons so you can choose one that suits your blog better 🙂

Because I wanted to get really advanced (and terrified), I decided to add a Link Up as well. I encourage you to write a post about why you’re a Life Blogger, or what parts of life you’ve been blogging about lately. Then (if I’ve got this working properly) link it up here. No likings or commentings required, though it’s be nice to link back here, and if you want to like me on Facebook, that’d be great too 🙂


Ok, now to cross my fingers and hope I got it all working right. Let me know if I didn’t. Let me know if you’re a Life Blogger too. Let me know what you’re having for lunch . . . 🙂



  1. Great idea. I am a mum, but there’s more to me than that and I don’t just blog about motherhood. That’s why I’m not hugely excited by the term “mummy blogger”. I’m a life blogger too!

  2. I like the sound of that! I did start out as a beauty blogger writing about beauty but I really can’t help myself but write other things too. So I call myself a beauty & mum blogger (i have 2 girls). But a lot of times, I think that’s a bit inaccurate because I don’t exactly blog a lot aout being a mum, I blog more about being a wife actually! Whatever it is, I think LIFE BLOGGER covers it all. PS I have a giveaway on my blog atm!

  3. Well done on creating the button! I’m actually pretty cool with the label “Mummy blogger”. I write about all sorts of stuff but ultimately, yeah, I’m a mum but there are other dimensions to me as well and I think my blog portrays that.
