Who is PaleInk?

My name is Ros and I’m a journalist living in Sydney, Australia. I write about consumer issues, technology, sustainability and general interest features.If you want to get in touch, you can email me a PaleInkBlog[at]gmail[dot]com.

I’m also a mum to two boys (4 and 2) and step-mum to two teenage boys, so I’m pretty busy, but I reckon I can skip a load of washing or tidying up the toys to write a blog post instead. My eldest step-son is on his gap year and I’m loving reading about his travels and it’s making my husband and I soo jealous.

I’m a keen bike rider and I ride to work most mornings and ride with my husband and two little boys in the bike trailer on the weekends. Our teenagers sort of like to ride with us. You can find my cycling blog at spokesandthecity.wordpress.com for all my two-wheel tales.

I love travelling but haven’t done so much of it in recent years as babies and small children don’t fit so easily in a backpack. I’ve hung up my passport for another few more years and I’m learning French and watching lots of movies and documentaries for a bit of armchair travelling.

I love writing and I love reading, and I thought I’d start a blog about writing … but then I decided that there are just so many other things to write about, so why not make it life in general?

So I’m dedicating PaleInk to thoughts, ideas and opinions on life and anything else that takes my fancy. I hope you join the conversation as a blog isn’t anything without its readers who are willing to comment.

There might be the occasional post on a French language book as the blog author is learning French. And I can’t guarantee there wont be the odd post on TV, movies or music.

  1. Hi Ros! Nice to meet you! Thanks for visiting my blog so I could find yours. I just recently got Rosetta stone French, and am trying to learn it. I think it is a difficult language, but hope to be able to learn enough to get along in France. Sounds like you are busy–boys just keep you running–I have three teens! Looking forward to more!

    • Hi and thanks for following my blog. Have you tried TV5 Monde? It’s a very good free French resource. I can also suggest about.french.com. I have also purchased a couple of good grammar/exercise books and work through these on my own. It’s too hard and too expensive for me to get to classes at the moment, but I find I can do a lot of study and practice with the help of some useful and inexpensive web tools. Good luck with your French studies, and your boys. Ros

      • Thanks for the resources! I will try them. It’s funny, we were in Italy a few years ago, and I found that language very simple and easy to pick up. French just doesn’t seem to be that way for me. But I would like to be able to at least try when we go to France.
