About Poppy Seed Baby
Hi there, welcome!
I launched this blog in January 2011, just a few short months after the birth of my beautiful daughter Poppy Ava.
I had already been posting over at my food blog for three years so I was pretty used to juggling ‘real’ life and blogging.
Until I got pregnant, that is. And then my brain kind of flew out the window. If you have ever been pregnant then you will know exactly what I am talking about.
I want to be completely upfront about this blog from the beginning; it would be nice to actually earn an income from it while I’m on maternity leave. To that end, I will be writing about commercial products which earn me a small commission if you click through and buy them.
I’ll also run advertisements and accept products to review (and hopefully giveaway to you!). So if you’re a PR or business owner then please do get in touch.
It’s embarrassing, but I’ve always fancied the term Mumpreneur, however I can really only start calling myself that once I’ve made some money! Don’t you think?
You might be wondering why I called the blog Poppy Seed Baby. Well, that’s an easy answer. When we found out that I was pregnant I read in a book that my tiny baby was as big as a poppy seed. As an avid foodie, this really appealed to me and the name stuck.
