Why are you known as jojoebi?

Well, my full name is Jo Ebisujima but no bugger can pronounce Ebisujima, even the Japanese struggle with it! So I used my childhood nickname of jojo and slapped ebi on the end (which incidentally means shrimp!) and taa-daa we have jojoebi!

Why do you call your son Ebi-kun?

When I started blogging back in ’07, my husband and I decided we didn’t want to use Ebi-kuns real name on the internet. To start with his was known as Baby Ebi but he grew out of that. In Japan, I’m sure you have heard the term ‘san’ which is like our Mr or Mrs, so you have Suzuki-san (Mrs Suzuki). For kids they use chan, (Mai-chan) usually for girls but it does get used for boys too and then there is kun which is used for boys (Kai-kun). I’ve always used kun with him because he was a pretty toddler and often people would think he was a girl! So, we use Ebi-kun as his internet nickname.

Do you have a Facebook group?

Hell yes! I have a free group for Moms that Rock, called ahem. Moms That Rock! It’s a support group of positive moms who want to get on with life, make something of themselves and not spend the whole day drowning in dirty socks and Lego blocks. Come over and join us HERE. Plus the secret group only for The Inspired Mama Revolution VIPs.

Why do you swear?

Why indeed! For emphasis, because I’m passionate and sometime boring old words just doesn’t cut it! But mainly because what you see is what you get. Yes, my hair is actually pink (cherry at the time of writing) and yes I swear in real life too. I also like the odd glass or two of wine, bum dancing and doing things for a laugh. I do what I do because I love to help people, I wear what I want because I hate being told what I can and can’t do and if I have the urge to dye my hair blue, I will. This is me, this is what you get. No smoke and mirrors, I am exactly this person in real life (although a tad skinnier and a smidge taller… in my dreams!)
