Ever wondered about that little #teamIBOT tag you sometimes get at the end of a post? Well this is what that’s all about.
Because IBOT is all about the comment love, and we want you to get as many comments as possible, #teamIBOT was formed to help share the Tuesday love. The lovely ladies below happily give of their time to read allocated posts every week, and leave you a thoughtful word or hundred.
You have to agree that they are pretty awesome 🙂
What’s your name: Janet
Where do you blog: http://middleagedmama.com.au
Do you have a favourite topic: This wonderful gift called LIFE! I just love to write about whatever takes my fancy at any particular point in time.
Do you believe in love at first sight: No. I believe in “like” or “attraction” at first sight, but it takes time to get to know another person and for love to develop. Although I thought the hubster was cute at first sight, we were dating for about a year before I realised he was “the one”. After that, he didn’t have much say in the matter, LOL! We were engaged within 6 months of my revelation 😉
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?Ooo this is tough! Marge Simpson – because I find myself doing the grrrr thing a lot; Daria – because I was a bit of a nerd at school; Wonder Woman (aren’t we all?!); and Tigger from Pooh Bear because I love all things cute and get very excited and bounce around 🙂
If you could have a super power would would it be: I’d love to be able to snap my fingers and have a magically clean house.
What food would you never eat: I’m not a fan of seafood, or peas, or coriander but I have to say I would never eat offal (tripe, kidneys, liver, brains). Ewwww!
What’s the first thing you would buy if you had $1 000 000? I’d buy my hubster’s happiness (ie I’d make him quit his job so he can start doing something he loves!)
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is … one of the things that sucked me into this blogging thing in the first place 😉
What’s your name: Renee
Where do you blog: I blog at Mummy, Wife, Me – www.mummywifeme.com
Do you have a favourite topic: My favourite topics are ones which strike a chord with readers. I try to choose topics that I think people will relate to. I want them to read my words and realise that their crazy life is normal and that they are not alone.
Do you believe in love at first sight: The romantic in me says yes. I don’t know that it was love at first sight for me and my husband when we met all of those years ago in a gay night club, but my heart definitely skipped a beat and I knew from that moment I had to see him again.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?
At the moment, I most identify with Miss Rabbit from Peppa Pig. I am a multi-tasker extraordinaire, always busy, always happy to help out friends and family if they need me and have the strange ability to make people laugh when I’m not even trying to be funny.
If you could have a super power what would it be: Invisibility of course!
What food would you never eat: My little sister asked me the other day if I would eat a piece of meat for $10,000. My answer was a big fat no. I will never eat meat, chicken or fish.

Name: Em Hawker
Where do you blog? You’ll find me at emhawkerblog, the bloggy home where I tuck my thoughts in to bed.
Do you have a favourite blog topic? Anything related to words, writing, reading and words. Or words. Did I mention words? I love words!
Do you believe in love at first sight? No. Thank goodness. My husband and I were 13 and 14 when we first locked eyes on each other.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why? A combination of Belle and Anna. Except for the princess part. Anna’s young (what?! Stop laughing! I’m totes young, whatevs yo!), a little naïve, loves chocolate, trips over her own feet and accidentally punches suitors in the face. Belle loves books so much she reads them while walking down the street. And they both love to SING!
If you could have a super power what would it be? The ability to make all food taste like chocolate with just a single touch. (But I’d like to be able to turn that power off occasionally. Not like Midas and his delicious meals of solid gold.)
What food would you never eat? Cheese. Never. Ever. Ever. BLEEUCH.
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is… a fabulous community created and maintained by a fabulous blogger. Thanks for building this wonderful space for bloggers to get to know each other better, Jess.
Where do you blog? Maybe Baby Brothers http://maybebabybrothers.com
Do you have a favourite blog topic? Sharing the funny stuff my boys do and say! They crack me up so much, I feel so blessed to have two hilarious little men to entertain me for the rest of my life.
Do you believe in love at first sight? Yes, but I haven’t experienced it myself. Or have I? I had the biggest crush that a 12 year old girl can possibly have on a boy in Intermediate (middle school to you Aussie folk I believe!) and I ‘went out’ with that boy for a year (ie. we held hands under the desk at school and I sat on the beach watching him surf). We broke up in the school holidays before we started high school but what do you know – we got back together when I was 21! Yep, my husband was my first ever boyfriend (actually, I lie. I held hands with his best friend first and he was our best man – small world!). It’s pretty cool having those shared memories of childhood!
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why? Um, hmm. I’m not much of a cartoon fan if I am honest with you! Maybe Donald Duck, simply because he is a little dopey and I live up to the ‘blonde’ stereotype unintentionally myself at times! I totally blame the kids and drink copious amounts of coffee to try and regenerate some brain cells.
If you could have a super power what would it be? Time Travel! I would love to be able to walk into a wardrobe and transport back and forth in time. Anything that could take me back or give me the ability to see my mum again would be the super power I would choose.What food would you never eat? I don’t know that I would call them ‘food’ but my workmate has eaten live insects for the novelty factor and I would never ever ever do that ever! Ever! I also hate oysters for their slime factor.
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is… the best and most supportive little community corner of the blogosphere!
Do you have a favourite blog topic? I don’t really have a specific niche for my blog, I write about my favourite things that make me happy, which spans across food, travel, creating things and my general attitude towards life. They are all my favourite topics, otherwise it wouldn’t be on my blog.
Do you believe in love at first sight? Yes -ish. I think it is easy to have love at first sight for ‘things’ – I love that cushion, notepad, dress, haircut. But places and people are more complex. While I give everyone the benefit of the doubt, I like to delve a little deeper before I declare my love.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why? I’m not usually one to be lost for words but I am totally stuck on this one and open to suggestions.
If you could have a super power what would it be? I would duplicate myself during the day and come back together at night to sleep. Imagine how much you could get done, learn, try, experience every day!
What food would you never eat? Slobbered on baby food. I have no idea how people eat food that their kids have spat out, mushed in their hands or slobbered all over. *gag I’m happy to try anything once, I’ve eaten barbecued mopani worms in Zimbabwe, ox blood soup in Thailand and one course too many in Europe.

Name: Rebecca (NOTE- Bec has been #teamIBOTing for a while. We just waited until now for formal introductions.)
Where do you blog? I blog at Seeing the Lighter Side, formerly Seeing the Lighter Side of Parenting but then the kids grew up a little so now I blog about other things as well as my gorgeous boys.
Do you have a favourite topic? Funny stuff my kids do. And rants about society in general. Oh, and history, writing, book reviews. Also, whatever happens to enter my head on any particular day. But not craft. Never craft.
Do you believe in love at first sight? In the movies, yes. In real life, no. And I say that from inside a very happy marriage of seven years and still going.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why? My husband says Danger Mouse. He has no idea why. I’ve always had a soft spot for Animal from The Muppets. He’s my inner silly child beneath the professional exterior.
If you could have a superpower what would it be? To make everyone I love healthy (including me). I’ve always said that if we could all just stay healthy I could do the rest myself!
What food would you never eat? Before I had kids I had a list. In the past 5 years I’ve been happy with anything that hasn’t already been chewed by someone else. Though I still wouldn’t eat witchetty grubs. Or fried spiders.
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is…. totally awesome. A fabulous way to discover new bloggers and hook up with old friends.
Where do you blog: www.OurParallelConnection.com
Do you have a favourite topic: Trying to survive all the parenting BS out there on teenagers. Teens can get a bad rap (deserved at times) but mostly they are just trying to find their way through life.
Do you believe in love at first sight: Yes but only in the movies. I have fallen in love with Shemar Moore from Criminal Minds from my first episode and I know (wish) if he saw me, he would also fall in love with a 40 something woman with 4 kids.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: Not a cartoon but a Muppet – Miss Piggy – she is feisty, sexy and not afraid to jump all over kermit.
If you could have a super power what would it be: to be invisible – just like the fly on the wall. I would love to be a stalker and see what actual happens behind closed doors. Oops – do I sound a little weird.
What food would you never eat: tripe
