I just realised that I've missed the first anniversary of the day my blog was born. I started blogging on 16th June 2011 because I wanted to record my children's milestones and try to retain some sort of memory of their lives. So, how have I done? I will be the first to admit that I haven't done brilliantly. I'm not very good at posting regularly and using my blog as a diary of some sorts, which was the original intention. I think I've been a bit of an emotional blogger, where I post when something makes me feel happy, irritated, or sometimes sad. Plus, when I started blogging I wanted to get involved in all the linky's and the great camaraderie amongst other bloggers, but I kept forgetting about them (the linky's that is, not the other bloggers).
So what have I achieved over the last year? I've discovered that there is another world out there where you can work with and help brands; I have an outlet when I feel that there is something important to be said; and I have made some new friends, which has to be the best part of blogging. I would probably have given up a long time ago if other bloggers hadn't been so friendly and supportive. So thank you to you all.
If I was marking my blog I would make comments like "more effort needed" or "could do better" so that is what I will try to do over the next year. Though don't expect too much as I am quite lazy so doubt I'll be posting every day! I will try to post more though.
So here starts my second year of blogging. I just need to think of something to write about. I'll do that now. Or maybe it can wait until tomorrow........
