My blogger CV

Okay, Jay and Tara have been throwing their weight around asking us to write our own blog CVs - so I thought I  better do mine before they slap the back of my legs. Plus I'd also like a blogger calender which I remember being a chaotic but hilarious part of Cybermummy.

Reason for blog name: notSupermum? Because I always seemed to be saying to my demanding girls "Just a minute, I'm not supermum!" Geddit?

How long I've been blogging: I started around June 2008 purely as a hobby. After years of keeping a written journal I liked the idea of this new fangled style of journalling.

I deleted most of my posts towards the end of 2008 after a minor panic over whether my ex-husband would find it but then restarted it with all personal details kept anonymous.

Blogging has changed a lot over the last couple of years, but I still enjoy it and have made some truly lovely friends - you know who you are. I've had a couple of times when I've considering giving it up in the past, but now it's an important part of my life. I love blogging.

Most popular posts:
The good, the bad and the single parent
My mood board for 2010
My family's recipe for Scouse

Inspiration for blogging: everything really, although this is a vague thread of being a single parent throughout the blog. The rest of it is about life, home, my daughters, my dog, friends, films....nothing specific. In fact I'm constantly amazed that people actually read all this nonsense - so thank you!

Blogging plans for 2012: more of the same nonsense I'm afraid, although because we've just moved house I'm planning to do regular updates on how we're decorating and furnishing the place and doing the garden. I also really want to do regular recipe attempts.  I say attempts because I'm not a brilliant cook, just an average one, and sometimes things go awry, but I'll still include them. Nigella I am not, although I do have a big bum like her.
