After a month of blogging I cannot believe I waited so long to start. Once I got over the hurdle of just knuckling down and getting the website up and running I didn’t look back.

Now one month on and I’m writing daily, I have a running list of ideas that grows every day and, most importantly, I have something that I can take pride in. Apart from my kids, obviously!

I built the website, designed a logo and launched it all myself. I create all content myself and have been promoting it across social media. It’s lovely to have a grown-up hobby that takes up my spare minutes when I get them. Even if it does still involve my children!

Doing this has opened my eyes to the world of blogging. I knew it existed of course but I had no idea just how many blogs were out there and how much effort people put into creating beautiful sites with incredible content.

It’s been lovely reading other people’s blogs and seeing that so many of us are in the same boat. Reading that someone else struggles with the same things makes me feel so much better. I also love how informative many blogs are. There’s a wealth of useful information out there.

So what next. I hope to keep going at the pace I’ve set and try to update as often as possible. I want to tweak the website here and there to make it look a bit more professional. I also want to keep plugging away at the social media side of things. I haven’t quite got to grips with Pinterest yet so want to spend some time getting that account going properly as I gather it’s a brilliant way of driving traffic.

Thanks so much for reading! Please find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram and give me a follow. Links at the top of the page.
