What topics do you cover on your blog?
I write about whatever is going on in my life and my head. Being a Mother, a Christian, a wife, a blogger, a stay-at-home-mum, an Australian, a daughter, a sister, a woman, a person.... so many things. I write about my children and my family, my fears and my dreams and my perspective on the world. I just write to get my words out. Sometimes my posts are about the big things in life, other times they can be meaningless fluff. Hence the name.
What are three unqiue features of your blog?
I don't know about unique. It seems like so many women out there are making their voices heard. I don't find it easy to identify anything that makes me 'different', as such. There are so many talented people out there doing such amazing work that it can be hard to be original. But I guess the most important thing I blog about is my faith. I am a follower of the God of the bible, but I try to present my faith as authentic and real. Not as a holier-than-thou, crazy person, but as a real person who loves Jesus. It's probably my own brand of evangelism. I also write about my life with my family. As a Mum and as a wife who has a husband who works away. My husband is employed in the oil and gas industry and sometimes his job requires him to be away from home, and some of my most popular posts are on that subject. And lastly, maybe what makes me unique is that I'm not necessarily writing for anyone else. I'm not actively looking for recognition or acclaim. Don't get me wrong, it's great validation and I love it. But at the same time, that's not the reason I blog. I will always write for myself and for my children. I started this blog as a record for them, because I'm not into scrap-booking, and I wanted to give my children the gift of getting to know the person who raised them, and because I have a horrible memory and don't want to forget all the big and little things that make up our lives. I really love the buzz that I get when I see that someone gets what I am trying to say. But even if nobody ever read my words again I would probably still try to write. For me and my family, its a good thing.
What do you like most about raising a child in Australia?
I love the freedom. I live in rural Australia, and I'm a big fan of the space. This is a beautiful country. But I also love the fact that I live in a nation where I am entitled to my opinion. I love the fact that I can raise my child as I see fit, and that I am free to worship the God that I love.
