A year ago, on a snowy Friday, I mentioned to Mckdaddy that I was thinking of starting a blog. Many of my ‘mum’ friends were finishing their maternity leave and I finally felt that I could carve out some time and brain power to do something that was just for me, something that would make me more that just a mum. Before I had the chance to change my mind, he had helped me set up blogger and I was ready to go.
A year ago my son wasn’t even crawling, walking or talking. Now he can tell me what book he wants to read, draw, choose his lunch, run, jump (nearly), dance, make a joke, help me bake.
- People would actually read my words and like them enough to leave comments
- The thought “this would make a good blog post” would pop into my head at least once a day
- I would suddenly be interested in photos and want to take them simply for putting on the blog.
- I would be brave enough to read one of my posts to other bloggers at the BMB Christmas Lunch.
- I would find Twitter and find that I LOVE it and frankly, become quite the addict.
- I would read blogs with such great writing that they would make me laugh, cry and nod in agreement.
- I would get involved with Blognonymous, which has been a great success thanks to all our supporters, contributors and the rest of the Blognonymous collective.
- I would make friends, real friends, that have become more than just an anonymous people on the computer but real.
- That writing for the public eye would be such a rewarding and therapeutic experience
- That I would grow to love my blog and the blogging community so much.
So, thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read, comment or tweet this past year. I really do appreciate it and hope to continue to give you something worth returning to.
