Anything and everything vaguely internet related. Blogging, industry, social media: if you can find it online, I've talked about it in here.

Secret Hobby

I secretly read the mumsnet bloggers forum on a weekly basis. It’s not ’cause I want to join (meh, everyone knows the only people these networks really benefit are the people running them) but because watching the stream of “how do I?” / “I’ve just discovered X [that has been around for years]” / “I… read more →

On “Mommy Wars”

So, I’m reading this post where one mum rants about the reaction another mum got for admitting she’s letting her kid “CIO” (cry it out). I’ve talked about CIO and sleep training before, you know I don’t like it, so I won’t go over old ground. However, as Isabel gets older I am becoming more… read more →


I got called a mommy blogger yesterday. Ouch. It was a harmless remark, included in an otherwise genuine question, not intended to offend. And yet nearly 24 hours later I’m still thinking about it.

Lo, my cursor fell on Inked By Erin, which is quite a nice coincidence given our history. Fancy that. Erin is currently sporting a layout with some chick I recognise from Alice in… read more →

Cashback Revolution

Shit that sounds cheesy, I must have picked that line up from an advert or something? So I joined some cashback sites. Or rather, I started using the cashback sites I signed up to AGES ago. For those not aware, the general idea is that you click through these sites to retailers, which by the… read more →

Google is Watching You

Call me naive, but I’ve always been fairly blasé about online privacy. Aside from not publishing any photos showing my face, I take no real steps towards hiding my identity. You could probably find out my entire life history—including past addresses, education and employment details—with a little nifty Googling and some lightweight stalking. Why, then,… read more →
