What Blogging Means To Me

Thursday, 18 September 2014

When I first dipped my toe into the huge world of blogging I didn't really know what to expect. I'd been reading other people's blogs for a while, and after doing YouTube videos I though it was the next step to take. I loved having the video memories of mine and Indiana's lives but I thought having them written down was another way to capture them. Now I look back I am SO glad I did.

Blogging, or my YouTube videos for that matter, for me wasn't to get 'big' or to earn loads of money. It was always about, and to this day still is preserving and making memories that I can look back on in years to come. It's always been fun too. When Indiana's napping I love having something to focus my mind on and a task to do. 

I have made a lot of friendships and connections through doing it too and I'm really proud to say I'm part of the community. There is always someone there who knows what you're going through, and I love seeing how others are getting on. 

It's not all sunshine and rainbows though, and it's a lot more hard work than people think! Keeping up with work, a 9 month old who is turning into a bit of a cheeky daredevil, as well as running a blog and a YouTube channel is not easy haha. But I love it, and if anything I think I'd rather drop work than my blog now. 

It's hard work but totally worth it. Just looking at how far I've come in just over 6 months and the opportunities I've already been given proves that. I never thought anyone else would read my posts, and am so happy to be where I am now. Thank you to whoever's reading this, you really do make my day :)

  2. I agree with Catriona, I love reading your posts and following Indie's progress - she looks like such a little joy. Blogging is such a nice way to record memories. I don't blog as much as I'd like but then I remember it doesn't matter, because it's mainly for me anyway xx

  3. I love blogging. Although I started to record memories, I think it's turned into more of a place for me to ramble on! I don't really know anyone where I live so it's great to have other blogging friends with babies of similar ages to turn to for advice xx

  4. Blogging is definitely my therapy. I struggle at times with Lamb. He doesn't eat and doesn't sleep through, so blogging is my bubble of concentration away from my everyday life. Not only does it give me something to focus on, it's my way of documenting Lambs life! I'm so glad I started blogging. Keep up the good work Hun xx
