The Mummy Bloggers is kinda dedicated to bloggers?

If you are reading this, chances are you are a blogger and the title interests you. Nothing about how to be a mummy blogger, or how to have a successful life being a full time mom and web logger. This is a fictional story, though I would not be surprised if this is based on a true story. After all, the main reason why this is appealing is because the author’s characters are pretty real. So the basis of the story is three mothers, each with flaws and each has a reason to want to succeed.


The great thing about this book, is that it is divided up into 3 main characters, while other supportive ones are linked. It is based in Australia, which is tiny compared to America, and totally plausible okay?

Elle Campbell- whose real name is Ellen, but that’s a boring name to blog with. Elle is the Stylish Momma, has two kids and totally flat washboard abs. She’s driven and ambitious with a past she rather forget. Her husband is some corporate guy who was previously married to …

Abigail (I think)- but goes by Abi Black owns the Green Diva. She’s in relationship with Grace, and has two kids with her ex- husband (now married to Elle). See how small the world is? Anyway, Abi is an outspoken girl who thinks that everything non- organic and Vegan is poison.

Leisel Adams- the Working Mom. She’s an editor of a few magazines and an occasional blogger. She simply does not have the time to do what she likes, and the blog is merely a way for her to rant. Her husband Mark is a supportive stay home dad, but Leisel finds herself stretched thin.

The Fun Starts When…

All three blogs were nominated for The Blog- Ahhs awards. I am not even sure if that’s a real award, but apparently there’s sponsors and cash prizes along with the win. Naturally, Elle and Abi are fighting for the win, while poor Leisel is trying to stay sane in her busy life. The story gets interesting as lies upon lies get dismantled, of course we know the evil one does not win.

But there’s 3 of them, who would you pick?

The Mummy Bloggers is a fiction with a real moral lesson: don't be mean to each other. Share on X


Let’s think about this for the moment, the story is fictional, the characters entirely made up.  But can we seriously say that the story/ plot is fictional too? From the #MeToo campaign to girls bullying each other, I mean we are still our own enemy. We are too fat/ too skinny, our skin too fair or dark. If we get sexually assaulted, it’s our fault because of the way we dress. We are sinners because we strive to be more, or because we have to stay alive.

In the end, The Mummy Bloggers is kind of reminding us to be nice to each other, and Karma does really bite back.

Happy Thought!



Whoo hooo! This arrived in the post and it’s a signed copy. When I mean first, I really mean I never had any books signed before. Not like you authors ever visit Malaysia, and not many authors I like visit Adelaide (little’ ol Adelaide)

  1. It definitely has relevancy and I am all down with the message it is sending out. Glad it was a good one for you, Ailyn!

    Oh cool! For your first signed copy. 🙂

  2. I’ve had my eye on this one because I like the idea of it being about bloggers, and it being set in Australia because really, America is over done. I like the message of being kind to each other despite societal pressures to constantly get ahead. Congrats on your first copy!

  3. I like the sound of this one. I like that it is about bloggers and I would maybe relate to the working mom blogger since I sometimes feel like I don’t have enough time to get things done. Sounds like a great story.

    Congrats on getting your first signed book!
