Do you like musicals? Do you know the song ‘Tell me on a Sunday’?
Way cool break-up song for the musical inclined folk. Essentially it is a really nice song about asking someone to not be a fecking asswipe when they break up with you.
Which leads me to… ”it’s not you, it’s me”.
Sit Down Mummy has been blogging on for almost 1 whole year.
About 11 months longer than I thought it would last for.
And I’m going to put it to bed.
It has been so much fun, and I have really enjoyed so many aspects of having this little blog. To start with the technology is so much fun. And changing so fast. I like.
I have been around blogs since 2006 (for work) and have even done some nationally funded research into blogs and wikis (as a technology) back in 2006 with my mate Spenny. Being an advocate of open commons, this research is now available forevermore (including the dataset) in the Research Data Australia system run by the National Library of Australia. If you are bored shizless – here is the link: http://researchdata.ands.org.au/investigating-blog-and-wiki-technology-for-the-enhancement-of-internal-reference-service-processes-in-a-library
Where was I… oh yes. Blogs. And radness.
And the enjoyment having this little wee blog has brought to me.
I have also loved writing. I hated English at school, and in real life only write technical papers, so it has been fun writing words for fun. For me. I have cracked myself up writing some of the stories, and I know that P and B have been laughing too, so that makes 3 of us
It really is so easy to set up a blog for any readers who have thought about it. And it will only get easier and easier as the technology speeds ahead.
But yes, Sit Down Mummy blog will be finishing up at the end of this year.
I am going to try to wrap up the twin-content and pass it along somewhere to make sure those stories and info stays available on the interwebs somewhere. That was one of the reasons why the blog was initially started, because I found it really hard to find helpful honest baby twin advice and stories.
There have been some way cool readers helping me with the blog along the way. And people actually reading who are not blood-related with the receiving of their xmas presents depending on commenting quotas. Ha!
This month the blog actually cracked 10,000 unique views in total. Now while 80% of them are probably my mum, and 25% my friend Robbie, that means about …. oh feck, I was never any good at maths.
A couple of big thanks here…
To Bec and Stacey for having blog coffees and laughing till we snotted, to mum for not getting upset about me shizzing it up on the interwebs and actually stating to me one day over coffee that feck is not a naughty word, to hubby for deeming the internet to be ‘admin’ which he hates and so not reading one blog post, to Vilisi for being my favouritest reader in the whole world even though I couldn’t manage to con you into commenting, to Shan for joining the twin club and teaching me so much, to Nikki for being so damn lovely and helpful and welcoming to newbies like me into the blogging world, to Sarah for the idea and support, to Ria for the marketing skillz, to Bec and LL and HiH for being my lovely guest posters, and to Em…. I stole your shoe!!!! (kidding, but I would have if I was there!).
While I am shutting this blog down, I will still be reading some other kick-ass blogs.
If you are looking for some new ones to read I recommend:
Have a fecking wicked 2014. I am doing the grandparent xmas pilgrimage, and then off to New York for 10 nights with 2 besties. Hubby agreed (slash was talked into the idea) that I got a week off for every kid I carried breach in mah belly at the same time! It is going to be insane. And I am ready to karate anyone in the snatch who raises their eyebrow at me taking some time off for myself.
Have fun on your adventures guys.
love KATY (aka Sit Down Mummy) xx
