Most popular parenting blog posts of 2020. This time of year I normally share my most popular posts of the year. The ones that have really driven traffic to my blog. In hope, it will inspire others when they are looking to write content of their own. However this year I have decided to include the most popular posts from a wide selection of parenting bloggers.  All the posts included here are each respective blog’s most viewed post of 2020.

  24. Great post and looking forward to reading some of those blogs! My most popular blog post was one I posted coincidentally before lockdown as I already worked from home with my son 1 day a week ‘How to work from home with kids’. It had advice from fellow bloggers and was most definitely and not surprisingly my most popular blog post of 2020.

    I love all your blog posts and ideas. You have inspired me in lots of ways. Admittedly I do like to enter your competitions and that is why I started to read your posts but now, having two children myself, you have supplied me with lots of ways to keep them entertained.

    What a lot of interesting and diverse subjects.
