About me

I am Hannah Mudge. We Mixed Our Drinks is my blog.

I started blogging because I missed writing. Once upon a time, for a fairly short period, I was a journalist. I trained to be a newspaper reporter - and I enjoyed being a newspaper reporter. Briefly, I also worked with magazines and the tabloids, which I can safely say I didn't enjoy. I started writing again, at the end of 2008, because I wanted to write about the things I'm interested in, to keep my writing in the public sphere and to engage more with the bloggers whose work I'd been reading for a while.

I live in Peterborough with my husband and son and look after digital fundraising and communications at an international development organisation. I'm left-wing, a feminist towards the radical end of spectrum and a Christian. Sometimes I talk at events (Greenbelt; GoFeminist, the African Initiatives conference) about the intersection of Christianity and feminism. I am a founding member of the Christian Feminist Network, a primarily online-based network for Christian feminists in the UK and of Project 3:28, which holds Christian festivals and conferences to account on the gender balance of contributors.

Things I have written can also be found at Liberal ConspiracyThe F Word, the Sophia Network blogxoJaneThreadsPremier Christianity and the New Statesman. I was the news editor at BitchBuzz for three years and in partnership with ActionAid travelled to Brazil as part of the Bollocks to Inequality initiative. I currently write regularly for Christian Today.

Why "We Mixed Our Drinks"? I lifted it, completely, from the name of Nerina Shute's autobiography, having read bits about her in a book once and seeing her book cited in the footnotes, I liked it.

These days this blog is primarily a space for personal writing. I don't work with brands, write promotional pieces of any sort and I don't have the time to take on book reviews. Sorry!
