I have been tagged by Mummy M’s Memories to take part in the Blog Your Heart Out meme.
Blog Your Heart Out is like a chain letter for the digital age. I will answer five questions about my blogging experience and tag some bloggers at the end so they can do the same.
So let’s do this:
Who/What encouraged you to start blogging?
I kept my pregnancy secret in the world of social media due to numerous miscarriages in the past but wanted to shout about it from the rooftops but also not wanting to tempt fate so I set up this blog as an outlet for my emotions. I set up a faux twitter account to ask questions and met some lovely bloggers on there who were an inspiration and made me want to take it a bit more seriously.
How did you choose what to blog about?
I chose parenting and my son because it’s the single most important thing in the world that I’ve done/am doing. I wanted to remember every second of my beautiful boy. Having lost my mum to cancer I don’t have anywhere to turn to find out silly things like when my first tooth came through and I wanted to provide Noah with something to perhaps look back on one day.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
I’m pretty much an open book really, my close friends know everything about me but new ones probably don’t know that I used to dance and I play piano quite well.
What three words describe your style?
Off the cuff: I tend to blog about what I find myself mulling over. The only rigidity to my blog is the fortnightly baby diary.
Procrastinator: some of my blog posts are delayed in posting for this reason alone.
From the heart: I don’t ever claim to be a writer, nor am I particularly clever with words. I write as I speak, write from the heart. I don’t have time to think too deeply into what I write so sometimes it’s a little chaotic too… Much like my mind 🙂
What do you love to do when you are not blogging?
With a 24 week old baby it’s pretty much centred around his needs, baby groups, walking and housework. Though I love yoga and keeping fit this has had to take a backseat for the time being though if I successfully get N to sleep in his basket during the day the first thing I reach for is the fitness/yoga DVD. I also love to cook and bake, I hate processed food and never buy it so I batch cook with fresh ingredients and love nothing more than to experiment with recipes. I love to read and I used to surf.
There you have it, my blogging and me in a nutshell.
