Baby Led Weaning

Growing healthy babies with healthy appetites

Let me first of all say ‘Hello!’ to our one visitor from Kazakhastan… guess who has been on Google Analytics?

Gosh, well, having finally looked at Google Analytics I would like to announce;

a. We have visitors to this site from pretty much every country on the face of the earth, apart from Greenland. (What’s that about, Greenlanders, huh? )

b. Sergey Brin and Larry Page know more about me and what I get up to than my own mother. Previously I had thought this role was held by my internet foster parents Mark Zuckenberg and Justine Roberts (Facebook and Mumsnet respectively).

So what I am going to say now is… if anyone would like to translate the home page, or even ‘getting started’ into a myriad of languages, that would be HILARIOUS and I would be so grateful. Obviously you wouldn’t have to take responsibility for the entire myriad, just one each would be great. I’ll leave that with you, don’t panic, I’m not asking you to join a committee or anything, just if you happen to be fluent in Kazakh I know there’s one person out there who would be delighted…

Oh, and look here we have joined the Mumsnet Bloggers Network, which means I will hopefully get off my ass* to get my blogroll** started up.

If any of you have recommendations, I’ll stick them up. Reckon I’ll do a BLW-type one but also a Just Generally Smart People one too.

And talking of Papa Zuckenberg et al, I should tell you that our FB is, our Twitter account is @blwdotcom and I will be Right Back Atcha with a Google+ doohickey once I work out what the hell is going on there…

* Please note the Americanism now that I have gone international.
** Please also note the pathetic British snigger because blogroll sounds like bog roll.

    I am almost tempted to book a family holiday to Greenland just to log on from there.

    Can we all plan outlandish holidays just to muck up Google Analytics and play with Aitch’s head?! I’ll put a tenner up for the first person to log on from Vanuatu.

    ooo, google+, its weird over there aint it! feels like arriving really really early at a party. Or, as my friend put it, like going to a club where no one knows where the bar or the exits are ..

    • Aitch says:

      gawd, couldn’t agree more… it COULD be brilliant, though.

      • Aitch says:

        and now i have started a google group… did you even KNOW that such a thing existed? presume it will integrate with google+ at some point but at the moment it seems to be working via email.

      • Amy says:

        a google group?! I am pretty impressed tbh. I will go and research it immediately. ;0)

      • Amy says:

        oo, I’ve joined (clearly can’t resist a group, need to work on that), coo and to think I only came on here to get the spinach burgers recipe *marvels at the modern world*

    That pathetic British snigger is really pathetic – I sniggered even before I noticed the asterisk – how bad is that?

    However, I would prefer the ‘arse’ to remain, preferably in a lovely smug upper-middle class English accent. Going all American is really just a case of lowering the standards if you ask me. But I’m from Sarf London, so what would I know?

    • Aitch says:

      i know, it feels weird. but i am trying to be welcoming to our North American cousins. I imagine I will revert to type almost immediately, if that’s any consolation. I can’t keep it up.

    Well, ass in Canadian would be ‘bum’ , which in the USA means a homeless person. However its great that people from everywhere are looking at the blog and the forum!

    • Aitch says:

      Really? Canadians don’t say ‘ass’? Bless my soul. Of course we have ‘bum’ here as well, meaning arse, but it’s an altogether cuter thing…

      • wacky12 says:

        oh, canucks do say ‘ass’ but as a derogative not for anatomy. Just dont’ assume all Canadians speak French…. about 10% do.

  5. pics says:

    I’m afraid that i only speak toddler and baby, interspersed with some outburst of rage over really small and inconsequential moments triggered by a constant stream of questions.
    But when the toddler country goes online i’d be happy to translate!

  6. pics says:

    Oh Yes. Because it usually boils down to a few basic wants (seldom needs) and throw in the most surreal observations and comments you can imagine and you are there. I think.

    • Kate says:

      Pics, could you translate this for me? It was a little too cryptic for me to understand.

      “More. Beebies.” (accompanied by a sharp jabbing in my ribs with the remote control)

      Any idea?

      • pics says:

        oops. i have clearly taken a few weeks to consider this one. Might it have been something about the current financial situation in this country?

  7. Norwegian here *waves*

    A little question about Greenland, would that show up? It’s not a country in that sense it belongs to Denmark :)

  8. Alanna says:

    I’m you Kazakh visitor! I’m actually an American living in Tajikistan, but we get our internet through Kazakhstan.

  9. maria says:

    You also have a Bulgarian visitor (quite a few I guess because I always recommend your site :)) If you need a translation of the home page in Bulgarian I can help and I hope that I can publish the translation in my blog too, I’m trying to make BLW popular in Bulgaria :)

    • Aitch says:

      bien sur! that would be great! i really must start getting link swaps organised as well… just never seem to have the time.

  10. maria says:

    Great also for me! :)

  11. Marina says:

    I can translate the “home” and “getting starting” pages into Russian if you like.
