Jane Alexander replied to Mom Bloggers Club's discussion 'I blog because....'
"Hi new here. I blog partly because I'm a professional writer (and it's nice to be able to write without deadlines or editors or briefs!). But also I blog because I think it's great self-therapy (and a lot cheaper than seeing a…"

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a writer and journalist who came to motherhood late. I live in the rural south-west of the UK and have a ten year old son, a husband (who's also a writer) and a revolting dog. We live in 'the Bonkers House' - an ancient and decrepit house we're attempting to renovate. I juggle furiously and frequently drop the balls, which is a little humiliating, given one of my books is called The Overload Solution!
What is your blogging philosophy?
Total abject honesty. I don't believe there is such a thing as a perfect mom - and I think the very concept is a rod to beat other women with. I hope I talk from the heart. I also believe in fundamental courtesy, politeness and the idea of 'community' in blogging. Unsurprisingly I think blogging is a supreme form of therapy - particularly for women who are stuck at home with nobody to talk to but the walls....
I have been blogging since...
2007

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
