Disclosure Policy

Mud Hut Mama is a personal blog written and edited by me, Jody Tilbury.  I started this blog for a number of reasons:

  • I live a fairly isolated life so this is one way of reaching out to people that I would never meet on a day-to-day basis
  • I’ve stumbled my way through a variety of situations and continue to bumble my way through others, I’m always researching and learning and would like to share what I learn so others can hopefully stumble a little less
  • I would love to make some income out of this venture.  I’m a stay-at-home mom living in the middle of a game reserve in Southern Africa so there are not a whole lot of employment options open to me
