I’m not technically new to blogging. I’ve attempted a few half-heartedly before and I’ve helped Jingles (the visiting Christmas Elf) keep a blog during advent for the last 2 years but I’ve not actually managed to keep my own.
Part of what puts me off is the fact that I LOVE reading blogs. One of my favourite parts of the day is when I have 5 minutes spare with a cup of tea and I can flip through the hundreds of blogs that I follow and delve into other people’s worlds. I love the eclectic mix of other blogs that are out there, I follow sewing blogs, crochet blogs, crafting blogs, kiddy blogs, cake blogs, food blogs, family blogs, weight-loss blogs, clothes blogs, home organisation blogs and ones that are a bit of everything. And I don’t think I fit into any of those categories. I can work a sewing machine but I’m not great at it. I can crochet but tend to stick to blankets and things that can be made out of rectangles, I like crafting with my kids, I cook sometimes etc etc. I do love to bake, that’s my main hobby, but it’s not necessarily something I want to blog solely about. So I don’t know where, or even if I do fit into the blogging world? I guess time will tell!
My idea was that I’d have blogging as a New Year’s resolution but I’ve got an emergency operation (detached retina) on one of my eyes on Tuesday and it’ll affect my vision for at least a few weeks. So I may or may not start blogging straight away. I might not even be allowed to use my laptop for a while!
Wish me luck, and I hope to blog again soon!
