Finding my Blog Voice
Do I want to join the masses of Mummy bloggers, or do I want a crafty diy focus, do I want to be about home decor and renovating, or the myriad of other things that interest me. How do I want to continue to go about this blogging thang.
The bottom line for me is that I want my blog to be encouraging.
To be helpful and to serve some sort of purpose.
Because even though it is about me, I want it to be so much more than that, it is about connecting and communicating in a way that heartfelt and honest, because sometimes that can be hard to come by.
I think about what I like in blogs, and why I continue to keep visiting them.
I like blogs that are real, and are not trying to 'impress' anyone.
I like blogs that are pretty and inspiring and have lovely pictures
I like blogs that make me laugh and that I can relate to
I like blogs that make me feel like the writer is a real person.
I want to blog about what I love, and what I am passionate about, rather than blogging about things that I think will get more visits or followers. Because I feel that being genuine and true to myself is important.
I know that a lot more people read my blog that just the people who publicly follow, of course I would love everyone who is a return reader to 'follow', because I am a sticky beak and I want to know who reads my blog. Also because I love comments and communicating with people.
These are my thoughts on my blog.
As a new stay at home Mum I feel I have a bit more time to focus on my blog now, than when I had a million things on my plate with uni and work and everything else. So, I really want to improve it and keep moving onwards and upwards.
