About SO Mum

Welcome to the world of SO Mum!

I’ve been blogging since 2011 with little snippets of family life in Hampshire.

After taking a little break to focus on other projects, I’m back on the blogging scene as it’s what I love! I’ve spent the past few years writing for parenting websites and decided to revamp this blog in early 2019 to bring you local ideas and information but still with a personal feel to it, rather than too commercial. I do this for the love of writing, but I do also host some advertisements and sponsored posts (they help to pay the bills!) – providing they are relevant to the site. Any advertisements and brand collaborations will be marked as such.

Why ‘SO Mum’?

Well, I’m a mum of two, living in the SO postcode district and my site focuses mainly on parenting in the Southampton, Eastleigh and Winchester areas. It’s as simple as that!

Speaking of keeping things simple, I’ve found a bit of a lack of easy-to-navigate sites where you can find out what’s going on specifically for families around the local area. I hope my Hampshire family events diary helps you to find local family events easily. You can view all events as one big list, or filter by area, or by type, for instance, family theatre shows in Hampshire or family events in Southampton.

From family days out and great places to take the kids in Southampton and surrounding areas, to activity ideas for rainy days, I’ll share my local knowledge and ideas with you all and I hope you enjoy reading!

If you like my style of writing and would like to enquire about my services as a freelance writer, or if you would like to collaborate with me or place an advert on this site, please do get in touch.
