Two months ago, blogging to me was something other people did. It wasn't the sort of thing a 40 something, stay at home mum and housewife would embark on! Surely not!!! I was more a pen and paper kind of girl , my tinkerings with words were jotted firmly in the real world rather than in cyberspace!
However, in September, the world of blogging opened up to me. At this time I started entering online competitions and with increasing frequency these were hosted on blogs. I entered into a world of like minded women, reviews, stories and advice. There were so many blogs out there and each one was written by a real person...it became something do-able!!
As a new mum myself to 1 year old Fred, I empathized with other mothers in particular and have enjoyed looking at photos of beautiful babies and reading other mum's experiences of this magical time. I felt I had something to contribute to this community. So, with some trepidation I wrote my first post and with even greater trepidation, I published it. I had started blogging!
Getting a new follower or a comment is a real thrill and I have felt humbled and moved to think that my words can enter this virtual society and become a part of something so huge and with such potential! I kept seeing the British Mummy Blogger badge on blogs I went to, and decided that I would love to be accepted into the official community of bloggers so I joined up. I felt like an imposter applying for membership. This was just me and my laptop...did I have a place in this group?? It took ages for my membership to be approved. I concluded that they had taken one look at my ramblings and decided that I was not worthy of displaying the BMB badge! Then today I received the acceptance email...I'm not going to lie...I was very excited!! I was now an official blogger....not just a 40 something, stay at home mum and housewife!!
