Year One…


One year ago today I decided to start a blog, It was a half term and on a completely different website.. my baby at the time was a one month old who slept all day so I thought back then that id have plenty of time to sit down daily and write about things..

HAHA!! I still manage to sit down but not daily, mainly because that would be boring to share that today I had a cold bowl of soup because I got busy doing something else, But I am still here, I have days of doubt, am I good enough to continue this? probably not but I didn’t start it back on that rainy day to gain anything besides just an outlet to share silly events or awesome things I find on eBay.

Today compared to last year is a dry one, my now 13 month old is walking around the room as appose to sleeping on my chest, my two other kittens still watch Dinotrux. not today as they are in their bedroom ruining things, and I am still here, cleaning and trying to get on with my life.

What have I learnt in this one year.. not a lot, maybe some new tricks and some new friends in the blogging scene, my growth, not that I was planning on growing my blog.. isn’t exactly where I thought it would be in a year but I am still proud that I have stuck it out for so long.. my main problem just seems to be my constant self doubt and anxiety which I am feeling a lot lately..

But as I look back, I really shouldn’t, as my poor husband keeps telling me, it isn’t a race..

I look forward to the next year, I plan on heading back to the Essex Baby Show and try to pluck up the courage to message and work with brands..

But for now, I’ll just keep on truckin’

    Happy blogiversasry! Don’t doubt yourself, a year is fab. Well done, I would think about some brands you fancy working with and send them an email. The worst that can happen is they don’t reply or they say no but at least you will be on their radar then 🙂

    Well done on a year! Just remember why you started. If like me it was to document the memories then it doesn’t matter how boring you think it may be for others because it’s for you 🙂 ox

    I agree with Dann. It isn’t a race and blogging is for you, not anyone else. Yeh, it’s nice when people take an interest and comment/like/follow/etc but at the end of the day you are doing this for you. As an outlet, as something you can look back on, as something you can show your kids when they’re grown. Growth and numbers arent the be all and end all, dont worry. Some bloggers want anyone and everyone to follow but it means nothing if you’re chasing after the wrong people, you don’t want follows for the sake of following, you want people who have a genuine interest in your personality, your style, your posts. Quality over quantity and all that. I doubt myself all the time, when people leave judgy comments and even be mean on social media. It makes me stop and think if I want to be part of the whole thing. When people lift my photos or literally copy my blogs content it makes me feel shit and like I’m doing this just to feel shit and it sucks. Don’t feel like you’re not good enough though, there will always be people who dont like your blog and thats fine because there will always be people who do x

    Happy one year! Don’t worry about where you are with your blog, every step is an achievement! It takes years for it to possibly turn into something huge. Every step counts and you should be proud of each one! xx

    Well done on blogging for a year, that’s an achievement itself. Anxiety and self doubt are hard but look, you’re still here, still blogging! You got this. Xx
