I've been tagged! The Crumby Mummy has tagged me in this meme for new bloggers, and I need to answer some questions about my blog.
What is your blog about?
My blog is a record of my life with my two little ones, and a way to share the crafts and activities that we get up to. I also use it to write about some of the things that are constantly running around in my head.
When and how did you start blogging?
I've had blogs in the past but they never lasted long. The difference this time was that I discovered the huge community of bloggers and it really inspired me to keep going. It also meant that I had readers outside of my immediate family, which was fantastic. I started my blog when my daughter was 6 weeks old, and my husband took the toddler away to visit his family for the weekend. I thought it would be nice to share some pictures of what we were getting up to with the rest of the family and I also wanted to share some of my crafty things.
What was your first post?
I agonised over my first post for ages. At the time, I knew that only my family would be reading, so it felt a bit pointless to start with an about me post. So I jumped straight in with a post about some felt biscuits that I had just finished. Here it is - Felt Biscuits.
Does blogging affect your life, and if so how?
Yes it does. I must admit that I start to feel anxious if I've been away for a few days. I like to respond to all my comments, so if they start to stack up I worry that they are being left unanswered. I've also become a lot more attached to my phone to keep up with my blog reading list and Twitter. To be fair though, I did always spend a lot of time on the computer, it's just that now I have a bit more focus.
It has had a huge positive effect too. I'm very proud of my little blog and that I've managed to keep it going for so long (coming up 9 months). I'm slowly becoming a part of the community, and I'm really enjoying being a part of it. I've found some wonderful blogs to read and new ideas to inspire me.
