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.
