      Ah but to be mysterious is fun sometimes!

    haha!! I have given up telling people now because they are either (a) super impressed and want me to explain more or (b) totally unimpressed and say that anyone can blog.

    this is great. I dont do it for a living as such but my non blogging friends don’t understand the point. Do you make money from it is a common Q!

    Lol! It’s funny how some people just don’t ‘get’ social media at all – but I think it will become second nature to our kids. Great post 🙂

    I’m fairly new to Blogging so found this very funny as I too have been trying to explain to people what it is. I get some very funny looks. Well done for making the finals of the MADS- look forward to meeting you in September 🙂
