The Gallery- My Blog

This weeks Gallery is the theme 'My Blog.'


I am very new to the world of blogging, having only had my blog for around a month.  However even in the first week I was enjoying it so much I knew that it was going to be a big part of my life.
I have always enjoyed writing but since having Mads 16 weeks ago, I decided that I wanted a place to document her life growing up and a means to chat to other people going through the same experiences as me.


When I first started it was really going to be just a place for me to write, I had no idea about the world of parent blogging but after starting to look at some blogs online as inspiration, I realised just how many mummy and daddy bloggers there were out there, and that was it, I was hooked.






Primarily this is the reason why I blog!  For my little family.  To document my daughters life as she grows up.  For me.  I find it therapeutic typing away and socialising with other mummy bloggers.  I want to make friends.  I want people to accept me.


I love it when my blog gets comments and I love getting followers.  Its nice to know that people are reading what I am writing and when they comment it is even nicer because it means I have written something that they want to reply too.


I want to shout to the world how much I love my little family and I want to learn from other more experienced mummies about how to raise my daughter and what has worked for them.


I know just from being part of this world for a few weeks that it is a very close knit community but I hope that I will be able to be a part of it.


If I can achieve these things from 'My Blog' then I will be a very happy girl.

Gorgeous photo :) your post is really good it rings very true for me because I was like that when I started my blog almost a year ago , not really knowing what to write or how to build up followers. But I have enjoyed building it up it's such a great outlet for so many things ! Keep up the great work x

I agree with all you have said. I have blogging to be so therapeutic, sometimes I feel I have no inspiration but then that passes and something new pops up! I think we all want to be accepted for sure and knowing that you have regular readers is a nice feeling :-) xx

Love the pic and the blog. I agree with so much of what you say - although it took me so much longer to work out how to avoid blogging in total isolation :)
