But do you know what? My weekend started off just like it did last weekend (I’m writing this on Saturday afternoon by the way). Already I’ve been able to spend time with Mr. G and Elliott this morning, we spent time mucking around on our bed tickling and playing, then we watched the ANZAC Day march in town and now I’ve come back to a house by myself while Mr. G takes Elliott to a truck show. It’s because of this that I’ve had a chance to gain some clarity after a busy week and to be able to sit down and really see the effort I have put into my blog over the almost 3 years. Thank God for clarity!
I just simply don’t have the heart to give it all away. It’s part of me and who I am. It’s also played a HUGE part of getting me to where I am in my career today, Digital Editor for Kids on the Coast Magazine and Kids in the City Magazine. I’d love you to go and visit :). When I left my old job to start maternity leave back in 2011, I would have never dreamed I’d be doing what I am today.
So, because I’ve stepped away from my blog over the past couple of weeks, I’ve lost a few Facebook likes and that’s ok, I don’t blame people for wondering what on earth happened to me. Maintaining a Facebook page is tough work, let alone 3!
And that gets me onto the topic of maintaining a blog, gosh it’s hard work. I’m not going to re-write what’s involved in maintaining and growing a blog so I’ll share this post by Natalie at Our Parallel Connection which gives a good idea of what’s involved, although not identical to what I do, it’s a pretty good example. Read it here.
So now I’m happy to say that Mummy Mondays continues and is now open! I apologise for not getting around to commenting on everyones posts in the past. I did have a couple of helpers originally but other commitments came up and I’m back to my old little self. If you’d like to join #TeamMM, please drop me a line!
