An Accidental Blogger…..

Right. Here goes…..My very first *proper* Blog.

So I’m a newbie Mummy Blogger. I’ve wanted to start my blog for a while now, ever since I got a taster for it by accident really. A friend of mine runs a website for mums and she was introducing a new section on the site called ‘Mum of the Month’ whereby a different mum would be invited each month to talk about their life as a Mummy whilst trying to get their mojo back, whether that be looking to go back to work or simply just finding themselves again after the baby bubble, so to speak.

The idea was to write a day to day (or as often as possible) diary entry style post explaining what you do. She thought I fitted the description perfectly and somehow, miraculously, managed to persuade me to be their first Mum.

I was reluctant in the beginning to be honest as I hadn’t done anything remotely like that before. I’m not a writer and although I’m not stupid, a bit scatty maybe yes, I did question my ability to be able to ‘blog’ – a term I wasn’t familiar with – I thought it was something businesses did, not REAL people talking about themselves!! I wondered why on earth anyone would want to read about me; I’m not doing anything particularly interesting or special, my life is pretty mundane at times – but I was reassured that this ‘normality’ was what they were looking for and their readers would relate to it.

Surprisingly, I did find it enjoyable; and rather therapeutic. It wasn’t perfect but I think it got slightly better as time wore on and I was genuinely upset when the month ended, just as I was getting into the swing of things! I felt like I still had things I wanted to talk about which is why I considered starting a blog of my own.

Maybe.

I began to discover other blogs, real mummy blogs that I enjoyed reading but it was a while before I found the courage to start my own.

Even when I did finally set up my blog it took some time before I could actually work out what my first post would be about. But I figured it’s always best to start at the beginning so here we are, this is my little story of how I fell into blogging.

My blog will be a work in progress, I’m not exactly sure where it’s going so please bear with me as for now I’m just going to go with the flow and enjoy it.

Hope you stay with me and follow my progress along my blogging journey!

Bye bye for now xx

    I’m hopelessly technically incompetent so can’t offer help WordPress-wise as I use blogger (& not particularly well at that!), but it really looks good to me :) xx
