For those not up with the jargon, a blog father is the blog which more than any other inspired you to start your own blog.
The Politburo Diktat has started a family tree. It is mainly based on US blogs.
Could be interesting to do here, focusing on the mainly NZ blogs. So if you have a NZ blog, feel free to list in the comments
1) Your blog father/mother being the one blog that, more than any other, inspired you to start blogging.
2) Include your blog-birth-month, the month that you started blogging, if you can.
3. If you are reasonably certain that you have spawned any blog-children, mention them, too.
For me NZ Pundit is my blog-father and I started blogging in July 2003. No children I know of or admit to 🙂
