Meet the mums maximising their earning potential

MUMMY BLOGINNAIRES. They started innocuously as little stories written by women in milk-stained pyjamas and ratty hair, reaching out to the outside world while their babies napped.

For some, it was a way of keeping a family journal, a way of articulating the juggle of modern motherhood. For others, who had enjoyed promising careers before the arrivals of their life-changing bundles, blogs became a vehicle to keep the brain sharp, an opportunity for self-expression during a time when you often feel unheard. But words can make an impact and these certainly did.

Inside Weekend, in Saturday's Observer, meet the entrepreneurial mums using their creativity, knowledge and resilience, the very fabric of their lives even to maximise their earning potential, thanks to the digital world.

Discover where in Australia you can sleep with the fishes: out under the stars, in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef with just a swag.

Plus, don't miss our tips to avoid electricity bill shock this winter.
