The Guardian Live Better Campaign Interview / Simply Being Mum

Okay I am over the shock of seeing myself over at The Guardian Live Better Campaign.

the guardian

Well, kind of.

When I started blogging in October 2010, there was no destination in mind. No plan.

I’d started on a journey toward a family life simply done the previous April.

But you know this, I’ve told the story countless times before.

My spontaneous blogging journey has been (in the words of Craig Revel-Horwood)

“A-Mazing!”

I love every minute. Even the minutes when I become paralysed with fear than I have over-shared.

Or as Dr Brene Brown would describe it…when I develop a vulnerability hangover.

(If you are a vulnerability hangover sufferer check this TED talk out.  Brene talks about considering breaking into YouTube and stealing a video of herself talking – so it can’t be streamed)

This is all starting to sound like a rather labourious thank you speech at an awards ceremony.

I didn’t win anything, did I? (looking around with a quizzical expression)

Nope, not an award in sight. But I’m feeling very honoured.

  • To have been featured
  • To be able to use such a fantastic free open source such as WordPress to blog
  • And ultimately to have found a place in the simple living community, and to have met you all

If you’ve got 5 minutes to spare, please do go take a look.

    This is so cool, congratulations! I’m going to read it now…but unfortunately I’m on my lunch break so won’t get the satisfaction of more work-time procrastinating! 🙂
