The Fairy Hobmother

Blogging never ceases to amaze me. We've all gotten to know and care about each other; we inspire each other; we can laugh, smile, cry and whine online and know we'll find smiles, acceptance,  support and sympathy when most needed. The generosity of bloggers never ends. It's a constant pleasure to be part of this community.

Now I've quietly read about the Fairy Hobmother and the surprise visits, but never dreamed I'd be the recipient of the following email:

Hi Barbara!

I'm the Fairy Hobmother, spreading light and joy throughout the blogosphere with the help of talented bloggers like you.
I stumbled across your blog today and thought that you deserved a reward for your bloggish efforts. I'd like to send you a gift in the form of an Amazon voucher.
All that I'd ask is that you mention me and a little bit about my mission in one of your blog posts. I don't need much, just a brief note, and as an added bonus if any other bloggers comment on the post it may entice me to visit them too!
If this sounds like something you'd be interested in please let me know and I'll get things moving this end.
In the mean time take care, and keep up the good work!

And guess what? The Fairy Hobmother is a guy! Who knew?

And he works for Appliances Online, but is more interested in spreading the word by giving. So if you have a blog of your own, be sure to leave a comment here, telling the FH what you'd like (and need) and with luck the Fairy Hobmother might visit you too! 
You can also follow him on Twitter

Yea! More cookbooks! Or maybe something else? Hmmmm.


  1. I'm so glad you got a visit from the Fairy Hobmother!



  2. Fairy Hobmother visits are the best!

  3. What a lovely surprise, and deservingly so! I love that the Fairy Hobmother is a guy though...

    Sissy wants to know if he gives doggy bloggers gifts too?

  4. Oh my goodness, the Fairy Hobmother is male. Well, why not? I've seen him "flitting" about other blogs as well. It's a great way to call attention to his work/mission. If he happened over my way, I'd love to have an ice cream machine, a pressure cooker or anything he might have in his bag of appliances! Wherever he lands, he'll find a happy blogger.

    I absolutely agree with your assessment of our blogging community.


  5. Congratulations. He's visited me a while back and he's a nice guy.

  6. Congrats! I had a nice generous visit from the hobmother too a while back. Enjoy your gift!

  7. Congrats my friend for such a fabulous visit by a male fairy hobmother :D
