The family that blogs together…

Posted on May 10, 2011

Last night I attended the launch of the Kidspot Top 50 Bloggers. It was a hugely fun night that resulted in visits to back-lane bars and me being thankful, as ever, that I rarely succumb to the lure of high heels. Lots of standing, people, lots of standing – and me smug in my flats. It was made even more fun by the fact that I got to share it with my sisters (who are both on the list – Maxabella Loves and And Then There Were Four) and my brother TICH (who is not, but would be if he blogged, for sure).

I love the fact that my sisters both blog. Not only does it give us an awful lot to talk about when we get together (not that we really needed prompts…), but it allows me to keep up with not only what my sisters and their families are doing – but with what my sisters are thinking. The latter is something that can be lost when one of you leaves town for Pinker pastures.

I read their blogs every day and love reading their comments on mine. There is always an inside joke to be found for those who are looking – and I’m looking.

I’m incredibly proud that both of them are on the Kidspot Top 50 Bloggers list – and I think you could do a lot worse than voting for them. Both of them, of course. You wouldn’t want to be accused of playing favourites, now would you?

It’s very easy – just follow the links.

Vote for Maxabella Loves

Vote for Multiple Mum at And Then There Were Four

The whole blogging family thanks you.

    Wow! What a fabulous photo. Love that your sister and you all blog together. One of my girls blogs and I love reading her posts, love that I can see what she thinks about.

  4. Kerri Sackville

    Loved ALL of you. Even your disconcertingly good looking brother (actually, especially your disconcertingly good looking brother…)

  5. Jodi Gibson

    Okay, so duh! I had know idea you were all sisters. Wow! Three lovely and talented sisters. Inspiring! Love all your blogs â™Ĩ

  6. Leah

    Great photo – and I love the bike handles too! I love reading along with you and your sisters – and have fond memories of Fibrotown myself 🙂

  7. InkPaperPen

    They have my vote! Both were one of the first blogs I ever read so of course I would like to see them in the “top”…Lovely that you can all share the online communnity together, I am sure it makes it all the more special

  8. Kim H

    How lovely that the 3 of you blog. I have tried to rope my sister into it – even set her up a blog and got her posting for a bit but she’s just not into it enough. I can only nag and harrass so much, can’t I???

    Love that photo. I don’t know, I think you’ve all got fashionista in you. Those outfits were soooo in then and they’re so in now. Woo Hoo for the 7o’s! I have loads of pictures exactly like yours. LOL

    Good luck Bron and C – you guys sooo deserve to be in that Top 50! YAH!! xx

  9. Ms Styling You

    So disappointed to have not been there last night. And loving that photo. Really. I always wanted a bike with high handle bars!!

  10. Melanie

    I had no idea you and Maxabella were sisters and I hadn’t even discovered Multiple Mums, (until today, of course!) Does everybody know but me? You are a talented bunch. How great that you can stay close through blogging.

  11. Mama of 2 boys

    I think it’s altogether cool that you all blog and you are all such wonderful writers. I thoroughly enjoy each of your blogs, talented ladies you are.
    Such a cute pic! Ahh, to have a sister! I had to settle for 6 brother’s instead… and NONE of them are bloggers… or would even know what a blog is for that matter :o/ But I love them anyway!

  12. Deer Baby

    That picture?!! Divine. Love it.

  13. So Now What?

    Oh the ape hangers! You guys were cool. I wanted one of those bikes so hard. Instead I got some red bike with white wheels with flowers on them. Lame.

    Love meeting Maxabella last night. I lubs her and you and your brother was hot and I missed your other sister.


  14. therhythmmethod

    I love that you all blog, and then visit each other’s blogs. It’s hard to stay in touch with family when you grow up, but blogging bridges the gap and brings you back to the kitchen table again.
    They have my vote. 🙂

  15. Kylie L

    You were right. The picture was worth it!

    Lovely blog. You make me sad that my gorgeous girl doesn’t have a sister. Maybe I should adopt. Nah!

  16. Diminishing Lucy

    Look at you all – that photo is just divine.

    So sad th e spare Tait couldn’t party on with all of you…


  17. Jodie Ansted

    I absolutely LOVE my sister, but I do have some sister envy when it comes to your family…because you’re all SO nice!

    Please adopt me. 😉 x

    PS I have voted for both.

  18. Jane

    Aw, cuteness plus, Al! I’m so happy to have all three of you girls as my bloggy friends. That’s a fantastic coup for the family – bravo! J x

  19. Lady Estrogen

    That is awesome 🙂
    Love the pic too – so fashionable.

  20. edenland

    You and your sisters made a huge impression on me last night. You’re all bloody fantastic.

    I have photographic evidence of why my two sisters and I are not fashion bloggers, too. (Bell bottoms and corduroy all the way, baby!)

    Thank you so much for your generous words, too.

  21. Miss Pink

    Gosh i love both of your sisters blogs. They are “never to be missed” reads of mine. I was so excited to see them both nominated.

  22. Suzi

    Aww!! Love that pic girls, how cute! Well done to by the way, your blogs are awesome, great to see them in the top 50.

  23. Maxabella

    Eeek! I can’t believe you’re on the internet in your orange (what is it with Mum and orange?) skirt and green t-shirt. And I’m not doing so well either in my paisly purple number. At least Coo is reasonable in her newsprint maxi. Wowzah!! And check out those handlebars, Al!!!

    Thanks, Al. You’re a good sister you are! x

  24. Romina Garcia

    It was great meeting all of you! That is one talented family right there.
    Ps – I ended up taking my shoes off. I think it’s well and truly time to just let go of that fantasy.
    Thongs from now on. Always.

  25. MultipleMum

    For the love of God! Where did you find that picture? Look at you with your tucked in top and Harley Davidson-esque handle bars. You still have the height advantage! Bron is patting your hand (just for something different!), completely at ease in front of the camera. And me staring up at my two big sisters, so blonde and cute, with the exception of that awful dress and bowl cut! Thanks so much for pimping us x
