Blogging: it’s what’s for dinner. 9-yo's 45K charity fundraiser sticks in politicians' craw
But as word spread of Martha’s blog, her local council took note – and decided that, unlike Martha, they had quite enough on their plate. She was told to stop publishing photos of her meagre meals.
When she wrote her “Goodbye” – explaining “This morning in maths I got taken out of class by my head teacher and taken to her office. I was told that I could not take any more photos of my school dinners...” the comments, already regularly in the healthy two-figure bracket, soared to more than 2000 – the clicks on her blog exceeded 4m ... and the donations to Mary’s Meals leapt to over £45,000 pounds.
Now, the local council has backed down and is eating humble pie.
Second helpings for Martha -- and for us!
