Hi, wandered over here from Not From Around Here. I'm not a mummy blogger - no interest in being a mum - but your conference sounds WAY more interesting, anyway. :)

Things have indeed changed Iota!
Gosh we go way back now, don't we?
Your post is excellent, you've made some excellent points and it's nice to see so many well mannered comments, no ranting is always a good sign!
I'm not sure about the Yoga, my back couldn't take it, can I watch and eat cake?
I fancy a cruise actually.

Love the idea of a Maldives mum blogging conference! Instead of coffee breaks, you'd have massage and snorkeling breaks.

2010-03-23T07:01:03.486-05:00

Hi! I serendipitously stumbled upon your blog through another that I read and I was really drawn into your post here as I had just written a post/mini-essay about my perceptions as a novice of blogging after writing one for about 7 months now. I was curious about how veteran bloggers felt about the commercial dimensions of this enterprise. Your post and the comments really elucidated some of

hear. hear. and let me know where the location for your conference is. might i suggest a hot island somewhere far, far away. (without wifi??!!)

ps did you read the new york times style article on mum blogging the other weekend?

2010-03-22T12:47:20.109-05:00

There will be something for everyone, especially you Iota. Perhaps our marketing got away from us and it doesn't show -- there are commercial bits, but there are sessions on basics, design, blog-to-book, social media and legals aspects of blogging

Also, the crowd-sourced keynote is sure to be a highlight, I doubt there will be a dry eye in the house.

I hope you all can

2010-03-22T12:06:33.043-05:00

Interesting discussion. It's informative to hear how everyone feels about their own blogs.

I do feel as one of the organisers that I need to correct an impression about the CyberMummy conference: it's not all about making money and turning your blog into a commercial enterprise or preaching how to sell your soul for a handful of freebies!

We have sessions that

2010-03-22T08:05:34.943-05:00

I'm late to this, as usual. I'm not going to the conference because I can't afford it and it does seem incredibly commercial. There have been posts written on how you can't make money from blogging (because some people seem very keen on earning their living from it) yet there are talks at the conference at how to make money from blogging.

My feeling is that blogging is

2010-03-20T17:08:32.114-05:00

Cyber Mummy sounds vaguely petrifying. I would definitely attend one of your conferences, though...I'd bring cake too...And I am NOTHING like my blog persona, so you don't need to worry!

2010-03-20T14:36:18.693-05:00

I would come to your alternative conference. I do want to go to cybermummy, but really only to see people, so I'm probably not going to. I can see how useful it will be to lots of people, but this is not where I'm at at the moment with my blog and I'm enjoying not being there. Your alternative conference sounds perfect.

In fact, I have in my head a great big meet-up that I

2010-03-18T16:35:32.538-05:00

This is really interesting. I was away last week so I haven't really got my head around CyberMummy yet, but I admit I thought "Oh No!" when I heard about it. Which is loopy when I admit that I only started doing the blog because an (American) friend told me I might make an alternative career (and yes that does imply an income) out of it.

But then, one of the reasons I

2010-03-18T09:42:49.645-05:00

I'm with you, Iota. If I ever had a commercial sponsor (tho' I can't think why anyone would want to sponsor a blog about absolutely f-all), I wouldn't be able to write 'fanny' ever again. Fanny, fanny, fanny! There, I've really blown my chances now.
FREEDOM! (said in William Wallace voice).

2010-03-17T12:28:05.296-05:00

This resonates with me so much right now, I feel exactly the same way. I think the Good Ship Mummyblog is sailing in a different direction than the one I want to go in so I'm wondering if I should just jump ship now or wait to see where it goes.

2010-03-16T20:51:24.417-05:00

I'm afraid the whole mommy blogging scene makes me feel totally alienated and is a big turn off. The reasons you gave here are also exactly why I wouldn't do Blogher too.

Now your idea I love and would defo consider attending, that's my kind of conf!

2010-03-16T08:22:19.990-05:00

I didnt see a sign up form for your conference, where do I register? ;) I must confess the only reason I am considering going to the CyberMummy thingy is to meet people face to face. Im not interested in making money from my blog because I have been convinced that its not gonna happen. But I do love making a network of interesting writers and artists and expats and mums who entertain me, comfort

I have no idea what cyber mummies are but love the sound of your conference.

2010-03-15T15:26:33.463-05:00

You're obviously coming from the same angle as me about all this. I will probably go because I want to meet people but I'm not really into the whole commercialisation of parent blogging. I was following tweets and stuff from Blogher in Chicago last summer and it all seemed to be about swag and blagging free stuff. I don't do reviews, carry no ads, don't really like doing memes or

2010-03-15T14:30:27.024-05:00

I have to admit, I too feel a growing disconnect between those of us that just like to write for fun and community, and those who are trying to grow some big corporate entity with their blogs. I do not have a facebook page for mine, I do not have ads, some of these things do really get on my nerves too. I do have a twitter account but each blog post gets mentioned exactly once and that's

2010-03-15T06:06:13.789-05:00

I am going to Cyber Mummy, but more out of curiousity than anything else, to a) put faces to names (even anonymous ones and those choosing to wear paper bags on their heads) and b) see what the fuss is all about.

I admit I am torn sometimes between making my blog more 'public' or commercial, upping my followers and being religious in answering comments, but quite frankly that

2010-03-14T17:46:55.133-05:00

i feel quite autonomous from many areas of the mummy blogging world, like, the commercial doesn't really hold me or i don't identify with it or something (tosses hair, free spirit!) but i still enjoy walking through the blog world and reading what life is for so many different women, and how they each solve the problems that we all can share. that is what makes blogging worthwhile for me.

2010-03-13T16:08:41.335-06:00

Geeky - Montana's not the middle is it? The Expat mum/mom blog meet-up has been tossed around recently.
I'm not quite sure what I'm doing right but I manage to stay above or away from all the pushy bits of blogging. I don't really feel any competition at all, no inclination to sell stuff, never enter my blog for polls and votes etc. Mind you, I sort of live my life like that

2010-03-13T13:46:59.716-06:00

I'll make the cakes!

Thought provoking post. I was feeling a bit that way about how commercial blogging has become, but isn't it inevitable. I think of blogging a bit like TV, first there was the BBC, then came the commercial channels, then cable, etc, etc. Plenty of room for all those channels serving different audiences. Although I still think of my blog as the BBC - no
