For those who don’t follow the various genres of do-it-yourself blogging, the top two non-commercial groups are (by people involved), in my view, are mummy-blogging and geek-blogging in various forms. Political and news blogs like this one seldom rate.
One of the larger (top last month at Open Parachute) in NZ is Mama said. I did enjoy the 2nd of August post on “I’m still alive kind of” about blogging and why we people like her (and us) do it. Emily Writes apparently had a (international?) viral post last month with a review on Tarzan.
I’ve had heaps of emails so I thought I should write this post. The emails are kind of “I’m not on Facebook or Twitter and you haven’t posted since the Tarzan post! ARE YOU DEAD? HAVE YOU GIVEN UP MUMMY BLOGGING?”
Or they say: “WHY AREN’T YOU BLOGGING ABOUT MUM STUFF ANYMORE? I don’t want film reviews give me mum stuff”.
And WHERE IS YOUR INSTAGRAM!
And so I’m sorry. I didn’t disappear. Look at all these reviews I went and wrote for Metro Magazine:
But yeah, I haven’t posted anything since Tarzan. Because of two things:
Go and read the reasons. But I’m going to deliberately use my take on it here because that is what I feel like doing.
So accept what we have to give and always remember that we do this because we want to, and not because someone says that we must. Emily makes that clear
So I will keep writing mum stuff. Reviews are fun but I love writing about being a mum and I’m always writing as a mum anyway.
If you want to go and support her – then try this thing for Wellington Women’s Refuge and Wellington Rape Crisis on August 21st. Or on August 9th there is a kindy that will be showing Tarzan at the Roxy in Wellington (?) organised by Emily. She has brought sheep and would prefer to pay for them rather than the theatre.

Gotta love the typos. I’d better head to work.
