then I realised I haven’t actually blogged about my blog!
were run by companies and brands and I didn’t realise that it is actually us,
the busy mums and dads of the world and the everyday normal people that are
actually behind a lot of the blogs that are out there.
see what they were about and what they did.
to write about. I wouldn’t really say I have a niche however, so I decided my
blog would be all about my family, mainly my two children who were at the start
of writing this blog both under two years of age. Now my daughter is two and a
half and I do sometimes regret having chosen the name twoundertwo and url for
my blog as it cannot be changed, and I therefore wonder how much life my blog
has left in it especially as my children grow older.
blogging was the fact that I have seen other bloggers reviewing products and
services. I thought wow how amazing is that, I never knew that companies and
brands would send out their products to be tried and tested by bloggers, let
alone did I know that I would also be lucky enough to review a UK holiday with
my family all at no cost to us! But its not all about the freebies! I also
enjoy going to blogger events and getting the chance to be able to meet other
bloggers and to share our ideas and tips together.
leave a little something for my children to look back on. I can share our
adventures and trips and all our fun times together in my blog. It will be in
essence, kind of like a diary for them, they can see the places we took them
too, the photos we took, and they can see how they developed and grew up
hopefully into beautiful warm hearted, kind, caring and intelligent people 😉
I didn’t really do much research into choosing the platform
I was going to use I just went with blogger as it was the first one I found and
it was really simple to set up. Another platform though is wordpress, which
aslo seems to be quite popular. Setting up my own url though was a bit
complicated (for me), but I managed it, eventually . I used a blog designer who
designed my blogs layout for me after I had chosen the theme and colours etc. I
think this can make your blog stand out a bit more as it is unique to me and
nobody else will have it.
my best to publish at least one or two posts minimum a week, but it can be very
hard to find the time, and then when I do have time I can easily be distracted
my what’s on tv or I may be too worn out to concentrate on sitting down and
thinking of something to write about. It can take a great deal of effort to
come up with new ideas and ways in which to keep your blog fresh, especially if
you suffer from brain fog! (sneaky link to my second blog here Hypothyroid Mum
for my blog also (if you’d like to like it 😉 would be appreciated)
sites (Instagram, twitter, bloglovin, youtube, etc) but I am slowly finding my
way around them. Although I am not entirely sure yet as to which ones are the
most popular among bloggers.
do enjoy it, though I do wish I had more time to put into it. I am hoping to
now start blogging more for my children and making my blog a bit more personal
to me and my family.
if you would like to share and be so kind J
