She has never before written about herself in the third person, but she misguidedly believes that when writing a piece called “About the Author”, it adds a certain gravitas.
Despite not being a politician, a popular psychologist, a pseudo-scientist, a self-professed parenting ‘expert’, a media-mogul, a stand-up comedian, or Katie Hopkins, she has the gall to think people might care enough about her opinions to want to listen to what she has to say once in a while. She thinks, therefore she blogs.
She writes about whatever topic pops into her head but generally her blog is the culmination of her ruminations on parenting.
She cares not a jot for parenting philosophies but she does like to share with the world her philosophy when it comes to parenting. Not clear on the difference? Hopefully by the end of November, and the end of NaNoWriMo, you will be.
At the time of writing she is 38, has been married for five years, and has three sons aged 6, 4 and 3.
If she were good at the spin. and convincing others why what she has to say is worth reading, she would refer to herself as follows:
‘Abby Boid has a whopping 38 years experience of being alive, with 13 cumulative years of direct parenting exposure. A fair few of her posts have made it to the Mumsnet Bloggers Network Front Page or have been selected as Mumsnet’s Blog of the Day“
She, however, is not good at the spin and thinks it makes people sound a little nob-ish. So instead she’ll ask you politely to pop over to her blog now and again during this month to support her in her NaNoWriMo challenge.
We need to leave it at that for now, for fear of being accused of waffling in order to hit the 50,000 word count. In fact, that is not what it is happening here at all. What is happening here is that she is finding it perversely alluring writing about herself in the third person.
If you like what you read please feel free to share.
