I started my blog just under a year ago now and I feel like I have achieved a lot in that time. Because of my blog I have been given opportunities to work along side companies, received freebies, made friends and developed myself.
My blog has helped me to grow and appreciate people. Without sounding completely big headed, my blog has helped people. Maybe not much and maybe in the smallest of ways but knowing that at least one person has read something that i’ve wrote and felt better about themselves makes me so happy. This is one of the exact reasons why I started my blog to begin with. I wanted to share my experiences of motherhood with others in the hope that they don’t feel alone.
Blogging is something I started but never thought I would actually stick with. I grew to love my blog and what I was doing.
I’ve worked hard on my blog, I plan my posts, I’m always looking for ideas and inspiration and when I do write, I put a lot of time, attention and effort into my work. I’ve put as much of myself as possible into my blog because I want people to know who I am and I want to share with people this journey.
There have been times when I’ve felt like i’m not getting anywhere and asked myself ‘why am I even doing this?’ but I haven’t given up. My blog has been something I’ve been able to turn to during my rollercoaster of emotions and I don’t know what I would have done had I not been able to write down all of my thoughts and feelings. I’ve always been better at writing my thoughts rather than speaking them. Even when I don’t get many views or comments for a while, I keep writing because my blog has been what’s kept me going sometimes. I don’t just blog for others, I blog for myself too.
Occasionally, I read my older posts just to get a sense of how much I’ve progressed as a writer since starting and it’s great for me to reflect on my improvement. My blog has grown and I have grown with it.
I’m proud of my blog.
