Hi, I’m Alex. I work at TMW as a Community Manager. The words on this blog are my own, and should not be taken as the position of my employer, clients or anyone connected to TMW.
I also blog enthusiastically in a variety of spaces on books, social media, Disney, food, parenthood or anything else I have a considered opinion on (find out more below). On some channels, such as Twitter, I’m known as ‘mokuska’*.
I was a regular contributor to smart women’s lifestyle blogs, BitchBuzz, and was sad to bid farewell to the site when it closed its doors recently. I now post monthly on and Bea Magazine, primarily on parenthood but also on anything from food to fiction to feminism. My interest in reviews and popular culture has also led to my contributing occasional book reviews to feminist powerhouse The F Word. I was delighted to also guest blog for Great British Chefs, and hope to do more of this.
As well as being a thoroughly enthusiastic mother of an endlessly entertaining daughter, I love cooking and cats (not to be combined) almost beyond reason, and have a complete obsession with Disney, in particular my ‘home’ park: Walt Disney World. I would love to work for The Mouse one day.
Otherwise I read, write, watch too much food TV and get addicted to social media, as well as obsessing over the fact that media is a plural term.
Finally, a note on my comment policy:
- People who haven’t commented before are pre-moderated purely as an extra measure against spam. It’s needed.
- Generally speaking I’ll publish anything that isn’t spam or obvious trolling / hate speech. I get to decide what qualifies as the latter.
- I have yet to withhold publication of anything other than spam; it would be wonderful to keep it that way.
*It means “little squirrel” in Hungarian. I am not Hungarian. I am not a diminutive rodent. I leave you to enjoy these facts in the manner of your choosing.
