Mother Distracted


About my blog

Mother Distracted is a top 100 UK parenting and lifestyle blog aimed at parents, carers and their families who are looking for guidance and advice on a wide range of lifestyle topics.

Written by Linda Hobbis, a marketing and PR professional with over 20 years experience of marketing at senior and executive level, Mother Distracted speaks to women readers aged 35+ from the UK (75%), the US (14%) and Europe.

Topics covered include: parenting, food, fashion, health, beauty, travel, technology, toys, books and local topics, such as restaurant and theatre reviews. 

I also cover relationship topics as well as business matters and health issues pertinent to the over 50s such as menopause and the challenges of caring for elderly parents.

About me

I live just outside Cardiff with hubby Mat, Caitlin (9) and Ieuan (7). They are all used to my blogging now and a willing (generally) participants in our blogging adventures. Caitlin and Ieuan are practising their video techniques to share their unique viewpoints and Mat tends to hide in the loft - although he will model menswear and test beer.

Location:   Vale of Glamorgan, The


As a marketing and PR professional with many years experience the 'other side' of blogging, I understand how campaigns work, the importance of delivering on time and working with a client to understand their needs. My approach is solution-led and, as an English graduate, my writing skills are of the highest quality.

I also enjoy creating compelling images and photographs to complement posts.
