Being Mum, Life lessons

Why do I blog and what do I want to get out of it?!


This is a question that I have been asked a few times and I never really know how to answer it in short because there are a few reasons why I do it and what I want to get out of it;

  • I relied alot on ‘Mummy Blogs’ when I was pregnant and I learnt so much from them. That inspired me to want to help other people on the same journey.
  • A couple of my best friends told me I should. I am the go to girl for advice with my friends & I love being an Agony Aunt & helping people so thought it would be cool to extend that on to others
  • I am ridiculously far from perfect. I am ditzy, clumsy but above all I have a big heart and alot to give.  I am very real and wear my heart on my sleeve and I think that people can relate to me with that.
  • It has enabled me to connect with other Parents and like minded people. I have discovered so many cool blogs along the way.
  • I have always been an open book and I am not afraid to share or show my feelings
  • Since becoming a Mum I have more confidence in myself and what I can achieve.
  • I love writing. Anyone that know’s me knows that I always have. English and English Literature were my strongest subjects at school and I loved them.
  • I love taking and sharing pictures. I have always had an eye for photography.
  • Blogging could open me up to many other opportunities in the future. It has already allowed us to experience things as a family that we wouldn’t have necessarily been able to do.
  • Believe it or not, I don’t believe in sharing everything. I share what I think people can relate to or learn from but I won’t share the nitty gritty of my personal life because I like to keep alot private and keep a part of myself for my loved ones. They’re the ones that get the ‘warts n all’ me
  • It gives me a focus and something for myself. I can escape for a little while when I blog. If I have had a rubbish day, as soon as I do a couple of videos on my Instagram and a bit of interaction I come alive again.
  • I am a self confessed people pleaser – I’ll always be the first to admit this. I like making people happy. I used to see being a ‘people pleaser’ as a weakness but it definatley isn’t and I’m not afraid to say it. Seeing and making other people laugh and happy makes me happy – even if it’s at my expense, I’m not afraid to set myself up for a fool. I have a bit of an ‘entertainer’ side to me. I have a bit of vulnerability to me and self worth issues yet the confidence to stick myself on camera, take selfies, sing karaoke. I really try not to take life too seriously.
  • For a small girly I have alot to say. I love getting deep (I’m a Scorpio, it’s what we do) When I was younger I was called an ‘old soul’ because I have always been wise beyond my years.
  • I enjoy every aspect of it so far. I definatley underestimated how much hard work it would be but I love having it as a hobby and I don’t think I’m too bad at it either.
  • Too much goes on in my head not to share with people. My mind doesn’t stop and I feel like it’s a bit of therapy for me to offload sometimes; share my worries and fears
  • I have found something that really makes me happy & something that I really enjoy doing – life is too short to do anything but!
