I realised this weekend that I entirely missed my blog’s one year anniversary or ‘blogiversary’ which I’m now making a word if it isn’t already one! Unfortunately I haven’t had chance to properly celebrate as I have been blitzing my flat in readiness for new carpets but, I have managed a piece of cake or two so that’ll do.
The fact that I’ve kept at something and have actually enjoyed writing for a whole year is something that I’m pretty damn proud of myself for to be honest. Ask my parents and ex-bosses and they’ll tell you I’m all about starting a project but get slightly bored towards the end so it’s actually quite a miracle!
I’m also amazed, having read back at my first couple of posts, how much I’ve changed and how much my life’s changed since I started writing. I am much more stable (emotionally and financially) and so much less sleep deprived! I feel like a new woman! I’ve even managed to get a new job so far this year and will be moving into an actual grown up house with a garden, a drive and even a bloody pantry in the next couple of months, so I’m definitely on track for a good rest of the year.
However, the most amazing thing about reaching this milestone is that people are actually reading my thoughts and I’ve made some lovely friends and discovered some other fantastic blogs from mummies around the world because of it.
So next year I have a lot planned for this blog. Maybe a giveaway or two? Maybe my very own domain name? Maybe a logo? Maybe a blogging conference? Maybe a linky if I can work out what they actually are? Definitely more of my thoughts and musings though if that’s ok?
So happy birthday to theperfectjuggler. Long may my enthusiasm and love for writing for you all continue.
For even more from me (if you dare) come and find me on the various social media sites.
