Favourite thing about 2014

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. 

What’s your favourite thing that happened in 2014?

Until next time,
El x

  1. Totally agree with this, so glad I started my blog – it has kept me sane.
    My friends and family still don’t know about my blog but I accidentally posted a link to it on my FB profile this morning and a few people saw it.

  2. I must totally agree with every point you have made here. I like you only recently started blogging after thinking about it for a few weeks. One of the best choices I ever made, everyone is so kind and helpful. I can keep all the special things we do together forever online now and look back when I forget!

  3. I love blogging and only wish I had started earlier! It actually gives me something else to focus on other than my lovely baby son who I adore. I don’t feel alone as I have made some lovely blogging mummy friends and I love discovering new blogs as well as writing. I started mine in July 2014 and really enjoying the opportunities it is bringing. http://www.alongcamejay.com

  4. What a lovely post! When I first started blogging I didn’t even publish my posts as I wanted them to stay private. But once you get some encouragement and people start to read, and comment, it seems to take over the shyness. I too love the community and I know that you get out of it what you put in. Here’s to another fab year for you! x x x

  5. Lovely post, love blogging, it’s a huge part of my life, it’s my full time job and it still keeps me sane like it did in the early days. Blogging rocks, you made me laugh about Kim K! Haha! Thanks for linking up to #brilliantblogposts x

  6. Great post. Love blogging it’s such a big part of my daily life now. I can’t imagine life without it. I was the same when I started and I didn’t tell anyone for six month except my hubby. But then it went on and I got more comfortable with it and in love with it I just couldn’t not share it. Keep it up!! Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. I hope to see you again next week. Happy Holidays #sharewithme
