A renewal.
A renewal.

The good news is I renewed my domain and hosting, so at least I am intending on keeping the website going, as for which direction I will take it,  I am going to have to figure that out. For now, I will think about posting again with some regularity, in the future I might password […]

Blogging… going forward.
Blogging... going forward.

My domain is up for renewal and I really am unsure of what to do, start to blog again, stop blogging altogether, blog but differently so my children maintain their privacy, blog but password protect my posts. So many questions. What should I do?

Missing, presumed busy elsewhere.
Missing, presumed busy elsewhere.

It is nearly May and this will be my first post for the year. Apparently there are lots of friends and family out there who miss this blog and to be honest, I miss it too. So much has changed in the world of blogging over the last few years but before all that, and […]

Gourmet Garden – Blog off/cook off – recipe choice

The timetable has been announced for the Gourmet Garden Blog Off/Cook Off second round. The Melbourne bloggers kick it off this weekend and I will be eagerly following their adventures on twitter and their blogs. I still have a few weeks to stew over my ideas for my own cook off. I debated whether I […]

Ding, ding, round II
Ding, ding, round II

Amazingly I managed to make it through to the next round of the Gourmet Garden Blog off/Cook off! What this means is that on Sunday 24th June I get to cook off against another blogger, live at the Sydney Good Food and Wine Show on “The Chopping Block” stand and my recipe and food will be judged […]

Gourmet Garden Blog Off /Cook off.
Gourmet Garden Blog Off /Cook off.

If I wasn’t busy enough with moving house and unpacking and consulting with builders and dealing with holes in our downstairs ceiling, I decided on a whim to participate in a blogging cooking competition! Yes, I know, my kitchen is a disgusting pit of neglect with no cupboard doors, a massive water leak underneath the […]

Melbourne – redacted.
Melbourne - redacted.

I remember making the same mistake last year after the Aussie Bloggers Conference, I started reading everyone’s incredible recap posts and suddenly developed a terrible case of doubting myself. It didn’t help that I had been having some serious concerns about the state of my blog and I wasn’t entirely sure that I really wanted […]

A change of focus.
A change of focus.

I suppose that in some ways it was going to be inevitable, that my blog would slowly change shape and become less about the writing and more about the photography. I could ponder on that for a few weeks, or just change the layout to suit the nature of my blogging. More emphasis on the […]

I won’t tell, if you won’t tell.

Ok, so forgive me, Day 2 of Nablopomo and I failed. But my reasons for not posting far outway the value of actually posting. I was spending one final day with my Mum and Dad and Ron and the girls before my parents left. No time for blogging. Sorry. I will make it up to […]


Will I? Won’t I? Blog every day this month? I am posting this quickly, late on the 1st as I spend one last unexpected evening with my sister and her boyfriend who were stranded with us for an extra three days thanks to the Qantas strike! Just in case I do make it every day […]

Happy 5th Birthday to my BLOG!

I wish I had something amazing planned for my blog’s 5th birthday. A huge giveaway, an amazing treasure hunt through my archives, an announcement about my book deal! But sadly I don’t really have much to say at all…. it kind of crept up on me! Five years ago Amy was 3 months old and […]

Would you, could you, eat a donut burger?
Would you, could you, eat a donut burger?

A week or so ago I left a comment on one of my must-read blogs A Cajun Down Under. I love Christy’s blog and have followed her recent adventures back home to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and salivated over her diary of some of the food she enjoyed, aptly titled Cajun P0rn! My comment was a […]

Some housekeeping and a bucket list.

See that Photograph over there on the right in my sidebar? =============> I finally managed to make a pretty badge for my photography business Sarah White Images which has been on my to-do list for ages. I realised this weekend that there is no mention or link to my business on my personal blog apart from down […]

Stunned, like a mullet.

I wanted to thank each and every one of you who made the time to email me and comment on my previous post. It means a great deal to me that my post with the most comments ever was this post, where I risked alienating myself from friends and the very people I look up […]

This is me.

This week a blogger I like and respect wrote a very interesting blog post which made me do a lot of deep thinking. For a while, since the blogging conference I attended in March, I have been feeling confused about why I blog. I have been wrapped up in what other bloggers think, feeling sad […]

A great big internet hug.

I need to direct your attention over here to Trish’s blog, My Little Dummer Boys. She has done a wonderful job of articulating what a lot of us are feeling right now. A dear friend on the internet and now in real life is having a tough old time of it at the moment. Tiff […]


I am having difficulty knowing where to start in describing yesterday’s inaugural Aussie Bloggers Conference 2011. A room full of inspirational writers/bloggers/social commentators. Meeting people whom I have admired and followed for months and years. Talking to other women who are just like me, who have the same dreams, aspirations, fears. Listening to amazing people […]

I blog, therefore I am.

There is a lot of excitement in the Australian blogosphere this week. On Saturday morning, 184 bloggers are meeting at a hotel in Sydney for the first inaugural Australian Bloggers Conference 2011. A reality that began as a dream and with lots of hardwork and enthusiasm, has grown into what will prove to be an […]

The big launch
The big launch

Welcome all! This is what I have been working on feverishly in my spare time. I finally took the plunge and thanks to lots of good advice, successfully purchased my own domain, installed wordpress and copied over all my old blogspot posts. Then I had to go through every single post, all 837 of them […]
