Wordless Wednesday? As if. This blog started off being about the words, and now it’s about the photos and the words.
I have marvellous ideas during the day while I’m at work about fabulous blog posts I want to write and I even quickly jot those ideas down (hallo mega amounts of draft posts). Then I get home and do the parenting thing and by the time I’ve had dinner, washed up, and told my son a million times that, yes, he does have to have a shower today, the last thing I want to do is sit in front of my computer and write of those blog posts.
I’ve been thinking lots about this mummyblogger thing as it explodes in Australia and for some reason is a ‘thing’. I think it only is a ‘thing’ because people are using their talents to earn some money. How dare they?
I look at it from the sidelines and wish that I had more time, more creativity, and more inclination to get more involved.
But I work nearly full-time and if there are any bloggers out there who work full-time, and parent full-time on your own, while making blogging work for them part-time then I’m all ears about how you do that.
I’d much rather do what I love and pay someone to do the housework and gardening but the housework and the gardening, oh, and being a fabulous mum, take up a lot of my time out of work hours. So is ‘mummyblogging’ just for those mums who don’t work full-time outside of the home? I’d like to know.
But I’m probably out of the so-called ‘mummyblogging’ zone because my son is now 11 and I write less about him than I used to. I guess I’m a bit directionless here. Am I a photoblogger now? I don’t know!
In the big scheme of things it’s okay because I’ve got my health and I’m bloody thankful for that.
Hey Jen, I’ve never thought of you as a mummy blogger. I think you are a personality blogger. You share interesting thoughts and experiences and I enjoy reading them.
Joh, I knew there was a reason I like having you around. “Personality blogger” – I like it. Thanks.

I agree with personality blogger. Or just “a miscellany of interesting things” blogger. Or even a doggy blogger? Not seen a picture of Monty for ages.
Funny you should say that. I just took some pictures of her tonight. She’s a great poser for me. She sits still and tolerates me getting her to stay. Stay tuned.
gosh a mummyblogger. I am not even sure that that is what I am but I guess it is true. You know I think that you should just write what interests you. Perhaps even take part in somethings that happen on certain days to give you a little direction. Oh and I love your photo today
I do write what interests me which is the whole reason I started this blogging thing to begin with. It’s just I feel on the outer sometimes I guess.
I’m amused at the definition… Mummy blogger. I had never thought I’d fit into a demographic… but fit I guess I do! Which means I am going to giggle every time i think of myself as such!
Oh well, if you can giggle at that term that’s a good thing. Giggle away.
Sounds like you’re a personal blogger, blogging about what’s going on for you. I imagine as my kids get a bit older I’ll blog about them less too. My daughter already tells me, ‘don’t you put that on facebook’ she’s 6.
Mandy, it doesn’t take long for them to learn. I too get that, and I get, you can put that on Facebook if you want mum.

I like to call my blog a personal blog. As in it’s about me and my life. Some of it’s about parenting because I’m a Mum, but a lot of it is about other stuff too. Does that work?
