My Favourite Bloggers

I try not to spend too much time blogging about blogging. I find it all a bit weird and meta, and of no interest to anyone except other bloggers.  And anyway, if truth be told, other people write those posts far better than I do. I will not be telling you how to monetise your…

Motherhood and Creativity

I never really thought of myself as creative. I was a bookish child, the sort who memorised the books my mother read me and “read them aloud” to myself at the age of two.  I excelled in English and the Humanities.  I once wrote a poem that was so good my teacher thought I had…

If you are looking for tips on attending a blogging…

Motherhood: The Best Job in the World

“I’m not interested in other people’s boring lives!” my mother exclaims, as she turns from the computer screen where she has just been comparing interest rates on MoneySupermarket.com.
