The Why to start a Blog
It was a year ago today, that I started writing my blog. My blog has changed so much over the last 12 months, from being just a hobby to now a great job. Don’t get me wrong I am not rolling in it, but things are building nicely and growing at a manageable rate. I first started my blog out of necessity. I was pregnant with my third child and had a few complications where I had to rest alot towards the end of my pregnancy. With this given relaxing period I began to read blogs. This was a real eye opener to me as I know blogging had been around for a while, but to me it had just passed me by. Once I had my third child and the first year of lack of sleep and feeding,changing and sleeping routine was down, I quickly got back to my guilty pleasure – reading blogs.
The When to start a Blog
Then one day I realized I could do this. It would give me a outlet, a bit of escapism to talk about Make up, Beauty, and Fashion things that are the ‘little Cherry on top’ not life and death stuff, after all I had worked in fashion for 10 years and have been a Make up Artist for the last 3 years. I felt I could offer another view on things. So I joined blogspot and set up my blog and the rest you can say is history. Here we are 75 posts later and I feel once again that my blog is evolving. In the beginning I didnt want to blog about the obvious by being a mummy blogger, because for me, I was writing my blog to escape the daily grind of being a mother. I soon realized as the demands of motherhood changed, I have become more relaxed and open to maybe talk more about how I juggle my family and work. Tips and tricks on how to get quick hair and make up when you are always in a hurry, and the last person to worry about on your list. In October of last year I decided to change to WordPress and go to a .com. So now I enter a new phase of my blog morphing into to something different from what I thought it was going to be.
I look forward to where it will be in months to come and I hope you will carry on the journey with me. Thank you so much if you have been reading my blog for a while, and if its your first time then I hope you will keep coming back.
