About

Liana and Joey Wedding at Thaba Ya BatswanaI’m Belinda Mountain – welcome to my (sort of) mommy blog. Making Mountains is a space for me to record my thoughts as I spend my days trying to work, live, love and parent: shaping the little molehills that are my kids into becoming Mountains.

My “day job” is being one half of content generation agency Black Mountain , with my business partner Catherine Black. Before this I worked in book publishing in the UK and SA for a range of different publishers – from the iconic Penguin Books to the romance experts Mills & Boon.

I grew up on a farm in the Eastern Cape, went to university in Cape Town and then travelled around the world a bit before settling in Joburg with my husband Gareth. We had our World Cup baby Rachel in 2010 and our son Ben joined us in 2013, completing our family of four. We also have a Ridgeback puppy called Juno who wags her tail at strangers, barks at birds and has a bit of a sweet tooth.

When not blogging or copywriting, I’ve written the odd article for some parenting and lifestyle publications – although I’d like to find the time to do more. I’m also an avid reader so besides parenting this blog may cover good books, gardening, food, travel and anything else interesting that comes my way.

Thanks for visiting.
