I started blogging about a million years ago now it seems. Well really about 4 1/2 but it seems like I've had a blog out there in blogland forever.
For a long time I posted with varying degrees of frequency about the kids, scrapbooking, myself, other craft type stuff and not much else.
I get bored easily, but I also stick with things that I enjoy, even when I do get bored from time to time.
Back in March I hadn't posted since January and needed to make a use it or loose it decision with respect to my blog.
I decided to use it. I love writing and after stumbling across Fat Mum Slim I felt completely inspired about what a blog could be. No longer would I feel that I needed to craft something or take beautiful photos of my kidlets to warrant a blog post. I could ramble about what ever took my fancy and someone out there might actually be interested in reading it.
I love to write. I always have. One day I'll figure out what I want to write my book about. They say that we all have at least one book in us.
I love to talk. I talk a lot. If I feel comfortable with you I'll talk your ear off. My blog is my place to feel comfortable and talk. I can be a little outspoken about things, however I also like to think that I am conscious of other people's feelings. I know how black and white the written word is and how hurtful the it can be if taken out of context. I aim not offend. If I do then I'm probably beyond annoyed or upset and offending is actually my intention.
You will find crafty things. I still scrapbook. I sew lots more again. I won a needle felting machine recently, I hoping to drag it out of it's box and create something with it very soon. I like to share and be inspired by others. I have been a long time reader of Mel's Blog One Crafty Mumma. She is one of my all time blogging heroes, I'd love to make people feel warm, happy and inspired the way she does. I definitely consider myself to be a Craft Blogger.
I recently started a small business with two of my sisters, Green Dandelion, there will be shameless self promotion of our business. Just you wait ;
I'll talk about stuff that I love, my style, kids style, house style. I don't think I'll ever call myself a Style Blogger, a I Wanna Have Style Blogger perhaps?
You will still see my kids here. I don't live near my family. Soon I'll probably live even further away from them than I do now. There will be plenty of content inspired by my kids. Does that put me in the Mummy Blogger basket? Perhaps I always have been?
There will be recipes. There always have been and there still will be. I love to cook and eat. I'm a wannabe Food Blogger.
There will be a bit of health and fitness type stuff. I have a brand new series planned that will be introduced very soon. I don't live my life by the scales but I know that when I feel fit and strong I feel awesome. Is there a name for people who blog in the category?
I won't swear. In real life I do. The more animated and passionate I become on a subject the more frequently you are likely to hear it. I always cringe when I replay it back to myself in my head. I like to think of myself as a little more eloquent than that. Here I can censor myself and I will. I'm not here to shock you with what I've got to say. I'm here to share, interact and (hopefully) occasionally make you laugh.
I'm not really that funny. I have a dry, sarcastic sense of humour. It doesn't translate well into writing, see point above regarding causing offence. I prefer to laugh at other people's jokes than try and make them myself. I don't like falling flat on my face, but I don't take myself too seriously.
There might be some sponsor content. Ask my friends I am a total shopping enabler. If I see something that is perfect for them or I know they want then I'll tell them. Immediately. If I love something (or loathe it) I'll tell you. I'm a bit opinionated to go with outspoken at times.
Above all I will be true to me and who I am. I am coming to you from somewhere in my imagination and I have so much I want to share. Lets call it a My Life Blog.
If you are keen to hear more of what I've got to say then I have a facebook page for the blog which I have set up to enbale me to interact with my readers more freely, the like button up the top should let you like the page quickly and easily. I've also taken a great liking to Twitter (see the point about me talking lots). You can follow me here.
I'd love to know what you've enjoyed reading and what you'd like to hear more of.
Hope that you are having a Blissful Sunday.
