Obviously Aidan’s birth is my favourite thing about 2014 but since I just blogged my birth story over at Mum’s Days I thought I would write about my second favourite thing about 2014.
My second favourite thing that happened in 2014 was starting El and Baby A. I remember telling Clayton I was thinking about writing a blog for at least two weeks before I actually started – procrastination at its finest.
I was worried that it would be a complete failure and that I would become an internet laughing stock. Finally, I decided that I would write, as myself, but not share my blog posts on my personal social media. At least if I failed only ”digital people” would be laughing and no real life people needed to know about my little secret. Now, after 3 months of blogging I am very proud of my little internet corner and share it with both ‘digital’ and ‘real life’ people.
After a few weeks it was obvious that I had introduced myself to an amazing community. Honestly, any blogger I have come across have been nothing but supportive, positive and altogether inspiring. I feel like I have lots of new friends at my finger tips, which has been great when Clayton has worked long hours. It is nice to know there is always someone going through the same things as you and will help anyway they can, from teething to tech support.
I love that I have a digital, hopefully permanent (once Kim K doesn’t manage to break the internet) record of everything. All the adventures we undertake, the small details that I didn’t think were important at the time and the major milestones we got so excited about.
Blogging has opened up many doors and has become a new, exciting adventure. Now, I am happy I made the decision to blog. El and Baby A is my second baby this year.
