This week the Mamamia Office has been caught by two kinds of fever: Royal Baby and Political Blogger Idol.
We’ve been on royal baby watch for almost three weeks now, so there was a lot of whooping and excitement when we heard the news that Kate Middleton was on her way to the hospital.
The new Prince is completely adorable and we loved mum Kate’s nod to the late Lady Diana with her spotted dress and how adept Wills was at fastening a baby car seat. Impressive.
It’s been a pretty bleak few months of the news cycle, with sadness and cynicism dominating the media. So this news is all the more welcome, as the world can pause for a moment and celebrate something happy.
Political Blogger Idol may not be the topic of dinner table conversation the world over, but it’s dominated discussions here at Mamamia HQ.
We were overwhelmed by the huge number of applicants and the quality of the writing. We’re excited to see who our readers will chose to be the newest member of the Mamamia Team during the election campaign. It’s certainly a novel style of recruitment!
