Hooray! It’s my very first blogoversary!
Well, actually, it’s not. It was actually on Sunday. And I wouldn’t have even realised that if it wasn’t for the lovely Mummy Limited recently celebrating her blogoversary which prompted me to work out when mine was too. But hey, better late than never!
On one hand it only feels like yesterday that I sat down to write my very first blog post but on the other, it feels like I have been blogging forever and I can’t believe that it has only been a year! And it has been a good year. A really good year.
I first stumbled across parenting blogs through Twitter. Quite a few of the people who I followed had blogs and I loved to read them and thought hey, I’d like to do this too. And with much encouragement from my best Twitter pal Susan, I finally did it! I was so nervous that nobody would be interested and after pressing that ‘publish’ button it was all I could do to stop myself from deleting it! But of course I didn’t and in fact, I couldn’t have given a warmer welcome.
I have had an amazing year and here’s hoping it’s the first of many! Yes, there have been some amazing perks along the way and I’ve been so lucky to have taken part in some great review opportunities but I never started my blog with any of that in mind, that is all just a fabulous bonus. My blog was just a space for me to be, well, just me and I couldn’t imagine my life without it now (sad, I know!) But I have made so many great friendships, I really have. Blogging has opened up a whole new online community to me and I love it!
So thank you! Thank you for joining me here, on Twitter and on Facebook. Thank you for taking the time to read. Thanks even more for your lovely comments. And (hopefully) thank you for sticking around for the next year! If you’re really lucky, I might just remember my second blogoversary and actually give you all a slice of (virtual) cake. Or maybe not. I think you all know me well enough to know that I have a memory of a sieve 😉
