Hello, I'm new to the Mum's Net Bloggers Network. I'm not sure what to expect! I hope to find some new followers here, and find some more bloggers to follow. My twitter is @sulomater My blog is at WordPress https://www.sulomater.wordpress.com
My blog has short, simple posts. I'm exploring my sometimes difficult past, and how it's informing my current life as an online-dating (hopeless online-dating!) single mother.

Hello Sulomater

I shall have a look at your blog. I like to read a wide range of different topics, there are blogs on almost everything, I think!

I blog about language on Glossologics

I've been working a lot recently, so I haven't been blogging as much as I would like, but I do enjoy it and do as much as I can!

Hello, thank you for your reply! I'll look forward to reading yours too.

Hello Sulomater!

Welcome aboard! I've 'met' some lovely bloggers from here and because we're all blogging away, you get some fab support on twitter too, not to mention being introduced to some brilliant and inspiring writing on so many different topics.

This would be a really bad day for you to look at my blog, unless you like being mentally traumatised at the thought of politicians having sex (with photos), so I advise you NOT to click on the link:


Leave it a few days and I'll probably write something nice about my son instead. It'll be safe to look then.

Sadeyedlady - that made me laugh out loud. Very funny!

And alexpolistigers - I'm a big fan of Fry's English Delight... and all things 'word', so will look forward to more etymology on Glossologics.

Thank you! It's been a bit of a strain trying to pull together all those photos over the last 24 hours (my 'Ed Balls' picture folder is bulging at the seams, and I have created a galaxy of subfolders within it, with names such as 'Ed Balls photos they photoshopped me out of' blush). At least I won't need to worry about doing that again...

Nice to see a new blog, I'll have a look later when I get to sit down with a cup of tea. I'll also be checking out the politicians having sex blog and the one with the words.

I've been away from my blog for most of the summer due to a surfeit of teenagers and toddlers in the house. I also haven't had a chance to read many blogs due to said surfeit.

I blog about being a mum to teenagers and a toddler (but the teenagers mostly cos they're the hardest work) at mumtoteens

Good luck with your blog and welcome to the blogosphere.

Hi Sulomater,
I blog about all things to do with creative writing (and reading). So, if you enjoy playing with words do visit Sally Jenkins Writing blog
I just tried to have a look at your blog but the address didn't seem to work. Any ideas?

Sulomater Sun 06-Oct-13 22:05:28

Hi sallyjenkins,

I'll click through to your blog now - thanks for the link.. sounds v. interesting.

I wonder if I put an extra letter in my link... maybe this will work:

http://sulomater.wordpress.com Alternatively, via Twitter: @sulomater

or - and this took my breath away rather - it's on the front page of the MumsNet Bloggers' Network page (or at least it was from Friday - earlier today).

And, hello borninastorm... I totally agree with what you say about the demonisation of teenagers... I witnessed two boys being told off for cycling in a park the other day. They'd 'ruin the grass' said the busybody.... it was clearly power-play and nothing more... the park is regularly used for car-boot sales... so well-used to being driven on!

Gosh, your blog is brave, Sulomater! I read your 'dating my neighbour' post and I'm a wee bit speechless. You have a good writing style and I liked how you bookended your anecdote.

My own blog is about knitting and crochet; I design my own patterns and write about them at FC Knits. x

Sulomater Sun 27-Oct-13 23:24:49

Thanks for reading and for your positive comments. Occasionally I lose confidence and block the whole lot, making the settings 'private' as it is so very exposing. But then I remind myself that it is anonymous for a reason ... So I need to retain the courage of my convictions. Your blog sounds lovely! I crocheted as a kid but not since, although I love that there has been a resurgence in these crafts.
