Building the foundations

Building the foundations

I have been writing my little blog for around 6 months now so I thought it would be a good time to write about how I am finding life blogging.

There is so much that I love about my blog. I love that it brings out a creative side that I didn’t even know I had, I am constantly snapping taking pictures of my family, capturing so many memories. I love that I have a place to write down all my girls milestones and our family adventures. This is something me and my family can look back on for years to come. I have records of Meme starting school, our family holidays and our ordinary every day moments. Good times, tough times, our life.

My blog has also given me something that is mine, something I can work on and use my brain.  I love that I get to spend the majority of my time looking after my family but I felt that I needed a little something else and my blog has definitely filled that void.

There are also parts of blogging that I am not too keen on, I have made no secret that I am not a fan of social media and although I am working on it, having recently joined Twitter and Instagram, I do find promoting myself really difficult. I also think it is so easy to get caught up in stats, what other blogs are doing and what I should be doing that I can, at times, forget the reasons that I actually started my blog.

I will add though that I have a new found respect for bloggers, it is hard work and how people manage to look after families, work full time and write a blog astounds me. Amazing.

So, six months on, and, whilst I still have a lot to learn, and a lot of progress to be made, I am happy with what I am doing….building the foundations.

  1. Aww I love your blog, your girls are so beautiful and your love for them always shines through. I enjoy your photos on Instagram also! #sharewithme

  2. Lovely post! I’m just approaching 6 months too and have really enjoyed reading your blog. I agree, it’s easy to get caught up in the stats which can be a bit of a negative cycle – we should take time to reflect on the reasons why we started blogging and why we love it every now and again. #BloggerClubUK

  3. Happy 6 months!
    It’s definitely easy to start getting caught up in the stats and numbers but, like you, in those times I just need to remind myself why I started blogging. Blogging definitely has given me the motivation to take soooo many more pictures than I normally would, and I know we’ll look back on them and be so thankful. Your blog has really grown in these 6 months, it’s crazy to think what may happen in the next 6 (:

  4. I also really struggle with the self-promotion and social media aspect. Good luck for the future.
