Crash Test Mummy for Bloggers

Hello fellow blogger!

I’ve set up this page as a place I can share my blogging related posts and talk about bloggy stuff!

It’s a work in progress and I’m not sure what this space will look like yet.  In the meantime, here’s some stuff you might be interested in.

Contribute a Crash Challenge

Have you written about something that would make a good Crash Challenge?  I’d love to hear from you with your ideas about setting the Crash Test Community a challenge that will either help them get organised, take care, or have fun!

    Hi CTM,

    Been reading you for awhile, great stuff! In the theme of ‘Take care’, I recently blogged about a truly horrific tale of a 2 year old girl in Africa who was in the ICU bed alongside my Dad. Long story, but she was burned by a pot of boiling water thrown on her by her 15 year old single mother, and she initially touched my soul because she never had a single visitor the whole time my Dad was in ICU. I learned later that she had passed away. I felt devastated and helpless, as I had planned to set up a fund in her name to try to give her a start in life. The more I think about it, the more I realise I did not meet her by accident. As awful as her story is, sadly it is not a one-off, as so many beautiful and precious children suffer from unimaginable cruelty every day. I am planning to set up a fund for kids just like her, in her memory. Would you be prepared to get behind this initiative once I get it going? I do hope so…it may take me a little while but I am determined to do it.

    Look forward to your response

      Hi PC – I am open to helping readers support causes they believe in. Please send me an email once you have the fund set up and we’ll go from there. Such a sad story.

    Hi Lana, I’m new to blogging and was out looking at what other mummy bloggers are doing. Your blog is truly fab! I’m sure you’ll be an inspiration. I’d love it if you have time to drop by my blog. Rx

      Hi Rachel. Love your latest post. I think many mum’s could relate. I regularly feature posts on the topic of “Take Care”, looking after yourself so you can look after your family. I’m not very good at it, but I’m getting better :)

    I’ll be looking out for the ‘take care’ features Lana. I’m pretty crap at it as well but I’m also slowly getting better. Thanks so much for taking the time to read it. x

    Oh Laney, I’m an idiot…sorry for calling you Lana! That’s the name of one of my bestest friends! Sorry! I’ll blame it on sleep deprivation if that’s ok with you?

    Hi Laney, I am relatively new in this blog space (just started 3 weeks ago) so I would love for you to crash test a “2 week sugar free challenge” with me??? I am currently doing a 6 week challenge. I have finally finished having babies (4 kids under 6 years) and getting my body back with a new clean eating and healthy fitness regime. So come past, check it out. Let me know your thoughts and I hope your readers would like to give it a go. Or at least I can feature here from time to time on how to make healthier snacks for kids without all that condense milk, sugar and butter!!! Xx Dani

      Gosh, just had a look at your blog. You are one committed and smoking hot mummy! I’m very much in need of a transformation challenge. I’ve tried and failed once already, even though my brother is a personal trainer! What is your challenge for me?

        “SUGAR of any kind for 2 WHOLE WEEKS!!!!!
        (now if that’s a bit much for your first go, how about one week?)

        However if you’re up for the challenge and want to go HARD CORE for the 2 whole weeks, just let me know! I’d love for you to try it ;-) of course there are natural sugars in fruit, milk, yogurt etc…what we’re trying to eliminate is the ADDED SUGARS which appear on the actual list of ingredients (don’t look at the % per serving).

        I will do a post on my blog this week to map out our plan of attack. Also did you watch the 60 minutes doco on she’s quit sugar for good, not sure if I am at that stage but baby steps right?

        Let me know your thoughts and lets see how many of our readers are keen to do this “2 Week Sugar Free Challenge”.
