2018 Blog Goals: Quarterly Update 1

Wow, the first quarter of the year has gone already. I can’t quite believe it’s very nearly April. At the beginning of the year I decided to set myself some goals so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to do a bit of an update. Youtube I started the Youtube channel back in November ’17 so really, not that long ago. Although I haven’t made quite as many videos as I would have liked I am still pretty happy with how everything is going. With just over 600 subscribers now I feel

The Blogger’s Daughter

As a blogger, I have my camera out a lot. In fact, I have it to hand most of the time and I never leave the house without either having my Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II or my phone. Erin has grown up around a camera and I guess she’s just grown up getting used to pictures being taken of her. That’s really no different to any normal family wanting to document their child growing up. The difference is Erin’s photos are all over the internet. Erin is just coming up to being 2 and

Finding The Perfect Balance When Working From Home

Working from home and blogging full time is a lot! I had been hoping to be able to do this full time for quite some time now and a couple of months ago I took a risk and quit my part time evening job in a supermarket. I hated it. I hated being away from John and Erin and I hated being restricted in what I could and couldn’t do. I never wanted to go back to work after maternity leave and I always knew deep down it wasn’t for me. Since I started working

Blog Goals: 6 Months In

Roughly 6 months ago I decided to set myself some goals; both blog goals and family goals. It is the first time I have ever done this but seeing as I registered as self-employed last year, I figured I should pay a bit more attention to how things are going. We’re now at the end of June so I thought I’d write a bit of an update to show how we’re doing. Schedule in advance While I don’t always get this done to be as ahead as I’d like, I’m doing pretty well. I’m always

5 Blog Must Haves

I have been blogging for quite some time now, about 7 years, and in that time I have come to find certain things that I just cannot blog without. I thought I’d put together a little list of my top 5 blog must haves! 1. Tailwind Tailwind is a brand new thing to me and I was really unsure whether it was worth paying for or not. It is. Tailwind is amazing if you want to make the most out of Pinterest. This isn’t really something I’ve bothered too much with until now but I’ve

2017 Blog Goals

Last year, one of my biggest goals for the blog was to get a domain and I did that! Me, him, the dog and a baby! is a serious part of my life now and I have lots of things I want to achieve this year. So, here goes: Schedule in advance – this is something I used to do all the time. I don’t know what happened. Maybe it was Erin getting more mobile. Just recently though I have been writing the day before a post is due and never actually ahead. I need

September Wishlist: Blog Edition

Welcome to my September Wishlist: Blog Edition! August was a month of really trying to get organised with the blog. Up until now I have generally used on online calendar but I have never really been a fan. Β I’m a stationary girl. Always have been. Always will be. I like pens and planners and tapes. I love being able to write and plan, rather than type. Β Making things look pretty is so much fun as well! So, just recently I have been on the lookout for some planning options for the blog. Here’s what I
