Getting the plan for my kids story out there

PlanBigOK, so I’m now putting it out there. After my post last night, I have finished the story & my kids like it!

I would love to see this published as a picture story book, so I’m putting it out there on PlanBig.

For some background – this story originally started life asToby’s Bedtime, a story about a boy who wouldn’t go to sleep. This was based on my years of babysitting kids who wouldn’t go to bed & some of their tricks. I submitted it as part of my VCE writing folio back in 1995 (you can do the maths to work out how old I am). Then it was called Mikey’s Bedtime after a little boy I babysat at the time (he is now 18!). I got an excellent mark for my writing folio. [Read more...]

Tips for kids

My kids want to write a blog

My kids have been begging me for their own blog/website! There are obvious concerns about Internet safety, however I have come to realise that the boys are technology natives – whether I like it or not – and the Internet is just part of their lives.

So, we started a conversation about blogging and the Internet. I wrote down some of the things we had talked about – and guess what, another blog!!

Last night, I put up Blogging For Kids. So far, I haven’t done much apart from putting up some posts, hardly anyone even knows they are there! I need to work out what to do next… probably a Facebook page.

I’m hoping that the tips will be useful for other kids/parents who want to have a blog.

I have four blogs!

4 blogs!!

Yes, that’s right – at last count I had 4 blogs!

Each blog has a different theme and different template. And there are a couple more mini, niche blogs being planned.

  1. Business Mums Blog – I started this blog in 2008 sharing tips for Aussie business mums. It has recently undergone a face lift and restarted after a few months break.
  2. Down with Super Mum – my “Mum” blog with thoughts on life and parenting. I started this one a couple of months ago after a bad day trying to be “Super Mum” and I’d had enough! It was originally a place to vent & share other stuff in my head, and quite a few people read it!
  3. Accidental WAHM – a place for my fictional stories about work at home mums (WAHMs). Somewhere to put them up so people can read them
  4. This blog – of course. I guess this is a place about me to promote my other blogs and just put other stuff that doesn’t fit on the other blogs!

So, there you have it – I have 4 blogs! It looks a bit odd now that I’ve written it down like this… oh well. What can I say, I love writing, I have ideas flying around in my head and blogging is a way I can get it out there.

I hope you enjoy my blogs!
