Being a Mummy, a Blogger and a Mummy Blogger
When I started this blog I never dreamed where it would take me. I didn’t forsee being four years down the track with two children in tow writing about all aspects of being their Mum.
Perhaps it’s time to reflect on where we will be in another 4 years or 40 (heh!) Because in 4 years time Bliss will be coming up to 7 and she might not like me writing about her quite so much. In 14 years time she’ll be turning 17 and definitely won’t want me to write about her. In 24 years time she may be, like me, on the cusp of having her first child. Or maybe she won’t. Either way, I wonder how she will feel about this blog and what I’ve said? If she can be bothered sorting through it all…
It’s good to think about.
If you’re not a blogger you may not realise that Mummy Bloggers are a pretty hot topic in Australia at the moment. Brands and PR companies are contacting us every day to run promotions, talk about their product or be involved in marketing them in some other way.
It gives me lots to think about.
I’ve done lots of giveaways on this blog in the past. I used to have a once a month giveaway for an email subscriber called “Subscribe and Win”, and my favourite comp was the 12 Days Of Christmas in 2008 – that was awesome! I’m giving lots of thought to the types of giveaways I might like to do going forward, and I’ve got a few things in mind. I’d love to know what you think, and how you feel about giveaways on blogs, this blog in particular.
4 years ago my space in the interwebs was barely visible; it’s still teeny tini but there’s a great big spotlight over this whole arena now…in 4 years time, or 14 or 24 it’s likely that the spotlight will have refocused in some, or many ways. Whatever happens between then and now, I intend to keep the focus on why I started this journey and why I keep on with it.
Being a Mummy changes every day, and so it seems, does being a “Mummy Blogger”. Thanks for joining me on the journey, here’s to keeping it real!
