I’m Francesca and the lovely Emma has allowed me to pop over for a visit here on her blog as part of International Blog Swap Day, a joint initiative of Tots100 (UK) and Digital Parents (Aus). I’ve never been to the UK, so this is a nice way for me to travel vicariously through my blog!
I’m an Australian married mum of three daughters, aged 7, 4 and 2. I’m in my thirties, work part-time in a corporate setting and blog for fun. I also just wrote a novel called Returning (cue shameless self-promotion). You can find out more about it at my author website if you’re interested: www.francescasuters.weebly.com (end shameless self-promotion).
Blogging is an interesting caper. Sometimes it’s easy to put blogs into a box and in most of these cases, this is the intention of the blogger – to have a “niche”: craft blogger, food & lifestyle blogger, “professional” blogger.
Me, I’m a bit different.
Francesca Writes Here is a personal blog about anything and everything that takes my fancy. My little plot of internet land is cultivated by my interests. How many interests? Oh, let me count the ways!
- Wife to an awesome Hubby
- Stay-at-home mum (partly)
- Working mum (partly)
- Mum of a toddler
- Mum of a pre-schooler
- Mum of a school-aged child
- Builder of dream home (I’m not actually building it – just, you know, paying someone to do it!)
- Australian of Italian descent who tries to teach her children (sporadically) her mother’s beautiful language)
- Playgroup co-ordinator
- Book club member
- Eater of chocolate
- Reader of books
- Occasional knitter
- Eurovision tragic
Being a creature of habit, when I get out of the habit of blogging, I tend to be at a loss for what to write. There have been a few breaks in my bloggy “career”! Maybe all I need to do is cast my eye over that list from time to time in order to get the ideas flowing. I’m not a professional blogger with brands bending over backwards to catch my attention, nor am I a parenting / craft / cooking / [insert-any-other-blog-category-you-can-think-up] “expert”. I’m me. And that’s more than enough!
Pleased to meet you.
Thanks Francesca. Do pop over to Francesca’s blog to read more about what she gets up to. You can find her on Twitter and Facebook. You can find the other blogs taking part in the swap at tots100.
