I started a blog in 2013, a few months after becoming a Stay-At-Home-Mum. I had studied print journalism at university so I have always had a love of writing. I had wanted to write a blog for years but had always been too scared. But I was kinda bored at home, and thought writing would be fun, regardless of whether anyone read my blog.
I don’t know if I have an actual philosophy. I write about my family’s life – our outings, my musings on parenthood and relationships, as well as some fashion and travel. I show the fun we have, but I also talk about the tantrums and some of the tough things we go through as parents. I think it’s important that my readers know that my life isn’t perfect.
Whatever reason you may have for starting a blog (whether to document your family, earn money or be part of the blogging community), don’t let it become a chore. Don’t take on too much. Enjoy the writing. Have fun.
We’re about to begin home renovations so the blog will probably focus a bit more on home and interiors.
