About Me

Published by

Hi There!

Thanks for clicking on this page to find out a little more about me, and this website. I stopped blogging in 2009.

I’m a blogger, and this is an Australian blog. If you’re not entirely sure what I mean by that, please see What is a Blog?, for a little more clarification. I started this blog at WordPress.com back in January 2007, and moved to blogpond.com.au in May ’07. Here is a list of my favourite articles.

I am interested in the Australian internet community, websites, startups, web 2.0, blogging, small business and social media. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and am also interested in psychology, medicine, education, adhd and giftedness.

More than likely what you won’t read about here is religion, economics, politics, shopping, cooking, fashion, make-up or pets – as I have little desire to write about these topics.

I’m “thirty-something” 40 something, and a mother of 4 children. I live in Sydney.

I have a Bachelor of Commerce (Management & Information Systems) and a Graduate Diploma in Education. I have been self employed for 11 years.

Please see my Policies page for further information.

Thanks for stopping by

    Hi Luke

    Many thanks for dropping by – does that mean I have to post daily? Oh the pressure 😉

    I still find the whole duplication issue just outrageous & shall be on the look out for a follow up.

    Dear Meg!

    Hi Gabor

    Many thanks for saying hello, and your kind words :)

    Hello Meg

    Thanks for blogrolling me. I will reciprocate.

    Your top 100 Aussie Blogs is interesting.

    Good luck with developing your business. I am happy that I don’t have to look to my blog for my paycheck. I think that would be a big barrier for me. I would find the pressure to perform, too much. Horses for courses and I am glad to be leaving that puzzle to my current employer, who generally gets good value for money.

    Hi Colin

    Please don’t feel obliged to reciprocate! That’s not why you were added!

    I don’t blog for a living either (because I don’t make money from this blog). I dare say I’d be starving by now 😉

    Of course, there is some subtle advertising for my business….

  11. Megon 11 Jun 2007 at 10:37 pm

    Hey Bruce

    Doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy reading about those things. I enjoy your blog (yes, even the posts about women only parking lots)!

    P.S. I’ve got you on the list to check each week…

    Love your entrepreneurial spirit and insights. I look forward to collaborating with you.

    Hi Meg, stumbled across your top Aussie blogs listing – and discovered that I wasn’t on the list. Sadness. Sigh. I’ve got a technorati ranking that fits into your list pretty well (41345 today) – so maybe I can be added to you compilation in the future?? Here’s hoping. Cheers, Judy

  14. Megon 06 Oct 2007 at 12:47 am

    Hi Judy

    I responded to you via email from your blog.

    Hi Meg,

    You did a fantastic job. This website is amazing.

    I found this website by hanging around in the dot au domain and with “blog” as keyword and here I am.

    I think I’ll stop by more often (I already booked mark you).

    Take care.

    PS: I am really surprise that the previous”hello” is fro, Dec 2007.

    Hi. Interesting reading about comparisons with bubhub, essential baby and minti. I run a site mainly accessed by parents which has some of the similar themes as those sites. But it is more of a close knit community where we try really hard to value and support individual members – we raise money, we home visit, organise playdates and adults nights out. Not use the site for our own social advantage and status.

    I find the numbers of members on those sites hilarious as we all know they are not active members.

    Bubhub….may claim to be the top parenting site but it is more of a top bullying site. They do not care about individual members and are more concerned about making top dollar. They shouldn’t claim to be something they are not.

    Anyway, just wanted to add my two cents as I was just looking up research on parenting sites and what people had to say in the past.

    Hi, love your blog! I am always on the look out for australian based content and have bookmarked you straight away. Also, thanks for sharing this page about you, I love the way you went from 30 something to 40, lol, its my turn this year. Will enjoy perusing your ‘plethora’ of posts and hope to contribute to your discussions in a helpful way.

  20. Implosionon 13 Feb 2009 at 10:39 pm

    Hey Meg

    This is a great site- great content, too. Most impressed with the fact that you juggle all this and 4 kids!

    Hi Meg,
    Would it be possible to submit an article to be included in your “Articles” directory? I’m thinking an article on localized search that would be relevant for any location, Australia or United States. ~ Colleen :)
