OK, so I have been accepted as a Mumsnet blogger I've put my little Mumsnet button on my webpage and made sure I'm following the rules... I even write the thing! But my blog isn't appearing in the list of existing Mumsnet blogs here Do I just need to do something to get it on the list, or do I just need to be patient?!
Meanwhile, here it is: Stuck in the Sandwich - about my experiences as a single mum who's also recently had to take on caring for my elderly (and now dying) father. Not always cheery reading, I admit, but there IS humour, honest! And I guess more and more of us are finding ourselves in this 'sandwich generation'.
Thank you, MmeLindor, how kind. And yes, chickens! It's not much of a network if they leave most people out, is it? Though from their point of view, they get free promotion from all of us if we put one of their buttons on our page...
I have to say, thefoodschool, that is not why you were flamed.
It wasn't because of what your blog is about or the fact that people did not know you were on the blogging network but your attitude when you posted. You came barrelling in with the attitude that you are the only one earth, or on MN at least, who cooks from scratch and are a parent. It had very little to do with being a man and everything to do with your tone.
Lets not fight about this. KatyMac is was not being patronizing, she was trying to help by reporting the post. No, it is not an emergency but they are more likely to see it if it has been reported. Hope that they get back to us with some answers to the questions. I did post a thread about general blogger network conditions so do have a look there.
Generally I have understood MNHQ's position that the Network is to share experiences and post with each other, not to promote our blogs (which of course we are doing at the same time)
Saying that, unless there is a list of blogs from MNetters in the BN, it is not really clear if we are getting any more than the chance to meet up with other bloggers.
Hi all, how's everyone today? We've answered this in site stuff but thought it best to post here to.
We have had a few emails this weekend regarding names not coming up on the bloggers network. This is something we have to talk about with the tech team and the rest of the editorial team. Unfortunately this means you may not get a response until tomorrow.
Sorry about that, we'll get back to you ASAP. Enjoy the rest of your sunday
