As both girls sleep (thank you Mr Sunshine) I am taking this opportunity to sit down and write. You may have noticed that blog posts have been few and far between from me lately! I’m not really sure why this is other than I haven’t really had anything to say! Or have I just fallen out of love with the whole blogging scene? Is this is the end of blogging for me?
When I first started this blog, with a sleepy 4 month old S snoozing on my lap, I blogged for me. For the memories. I needed an outlet, something that was for me, something of my own. That happened to be my little space on the world wide web! Now I love my little blog and everything it has brought me, I am just not sure what this year holds for me.
I have met some amazing ladies through the internet, people who have listened and offered words of support when I’ve been battling my mental health. My photography has massively improved from those 2014 posts and I have captured so many amazing memories! I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing brands, each giving me the confidence to keep going.
But I will never be “a blogger blogger”. I don’t have the time to, nor do I want to, spend all of my time on social media, pushing and plugging. I am not in a position to give up my day job to pursue my blogging career and I do not have a fancy home, wardrobe or life! I am happiest nestled on the sofa with my two girls by my side or weather permitted, outdoors exploring.
I am that person who will try to fit in. Buy a product because you said it was a must have. Visit somewhere because everyone else is! And in doing that I lost my way. I was trying to be something that someone would want to read. But actually I was just attracting the wrong audience.
This blog is for me. For the memories. So if you’ve come here looking for fancy days out, a fancy Mum wardrobe or a perfectly placed family, you’re in the wrong place. From now on this is a place of real life. A place for my random thoughts.
My life isn’t always rosy. Some days I don’t even want to leave the house and others you can’t get me back in. I spend too much of my time trying to spin 150 plates and never managing more than two! But I am me. And this is what you will see!
So is this the end of blogging for me? I’m not sure but for now I am going to be busy making memories and truly being in the moment with those beautiful girls of mine!
Over and out, peace!
