New Year. New Blogger.

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!

  1. Rather than try to make yourself fit your blog perhaps the blog should fit around you and who you are and not what you think you should be? The best blogs are those that have a natural and 'true' voice. Just blog about whatever interests you and never-mind what anyone might think! If you have crochet or sewing that is lovely, but if you don't, then talk about something else that has interested you. Chances are that if it interests you, it will also be entertaining to someone else. There are no rules. It's your blog!

    Hope blogging goes well for you. Good luck!
