Something has been puzzling me about all this electioneering aimed at the users of Mumsnet. Who are they? No really, I mean this. I get a lot of ridicule at work over my blog and get accused all the time of using Mumsnet, but I don’t. I think Ive used it once.
A straw poll amongst my peers who are frankly, the voting middle class mums that politicians are trying to win the votes of, reveals that none of them use it either. Are the Mumsnet team just brilliant at marketing? Or is my circle of friends unique in that they use other mediums such as blogs and twitter to chat to their friends, and the local Children’s Centre, NCT groups and the library to find out information. I’m sure Mumsnet is very good, I just wonder how representative of Mums it really is and I’m off to have a little look.
