As I scrolled through my Bloglovin feed last month I was met with #BEDM at Rosalilium – stands for Blog Every Day in May.
Although May is an incredibly busy month for me I decided this was the exact challenge I have been looking for, I love that there is no pressure, Elizabeth does not want you to alter your quality of blogging, if you miss a day you do, but it is a lovely bi-annual event bringing groups of bloggers from all over the world to each other.
Elizabeth has set a calendar of blog prompts if you can not think of what to blog that day, there are some great ones, I am planning to do a mixture of some planned posts, off the cuff blogging and some from her suggestions.
Today she set – What Is My Blog About ?
I thought this was great as my about me page and what I blog about is grossly out of date and with attending Blogtacular in a couple of weeks any new bloggers that pass my way can learn a little more.
I started my blog back in January 2007, at the time I had just started my part-time handmade jewellery business (I had dreamt of it being full- time by now), my blog allowed me to enter into a new crafting community, share my pieces and learn more.
As I passed through my 1st year I started sharing about my baking attempts, my love of cupcakes, fashion and interiors.
In 2009 Grayson was born, this in theory meant I could grow my blog and jewellery business as my day job became part-time, but Grayson becoming unwell changed that all.
I took a blogging break (unintentionally) whilst Grayson’s masses of care evolved, I started to blog again sharing his progress for the friends who had been following, my love for twitter grew and with that I was inspired by bloggers such as Sonia into the world of Parent Blogging.
So from 2010-2012 that is where my blog mainly sat, I slowly became less on the blog, my interests did not feature as much. Then in 2013 I made the decision that my blog needed to start to re invent.
It still has not fully taken place, 3 very young children, a job and a lot of medical appointments for Grayson have hindered it, but this year will see me come back.
I have a new logo and theme coming to my blog, posts are now more varied, my love of interiors, fashion and beauty are appearing as well as posts still of my gorgeous babies.
My blog is a little view into my world, my thoughts and my life, dreams & aspirations, highs and lows. It is a pin board of all the things I hope life brings.
I hope you enjoy from a Vintage obsessed, plus size, sleep deprived mum with an addiction to hair dye, nail varnish, fashion and interiors.
