For a long time now I haven’t blogged anything personal, nothing too controversial and frankly nothing of any interest. Not really. Please, hear me out on this though. I was writing post upon post and saving them in my drafts, because what I had to say wasn’t always really going to be favoured by the companies that I REALLY want to work with down the road. Don’t misinterpret me here, I adore baking, stacking up the new cups we have been gifted and I really enjoy waffling on about ‘stuff’. Something that we have been incredibly fortunate with this year is working with some great companies. Better than great. At the same time I found myself biting my tongue. Not dropping the f-bomb in a post, holding back the shit (not literally may I add) on twitter and generally trying to a saintly mummy with all the white backgrounds and none of the poo on her hands.
I had begun to consider more and more what the impression others may have of my blog and I had begun to disregard what I thought of my blog. Which seems pretty fucking stupid as it’s my blog and I should be writing what I am thinking, not what I think you might want me to think and then saying that instead. IYSWIM.
So there it is. I swapped my true voice for some very, very wonderful gifts. I can’t even begin to go into the wonderful year we have had without sounding like a gushing moron and I’m trying to avoid that right now.
So I found myself sitting the other day, just thinking about life and I thought to myself that really, what I should be doing is changing my blog. Changing it to show a bit more of me. I have been blogging for almost four years now. I never particularly wanted to be one of those famous bloggers that are everywhere, win all the things and so on. I don’t mind that I don’t really fit in with any of the big cliques in the world of blogging. I am more than happy to come and talk to any old arsehole* at these events.
Which I only attend in order to pick up good information and get away from my
noisy glorious kids for the day.
So anyway, what I am saying is that I will still be throwing up competitions, reviews and sponsored stuff (if anyone can cope with me anymore) but there will probably be a bit more actual blogging going on.
PEACE OUT BOOTCHIES.
*Please don’t be offended if we have rubbed shoulders and talked about metrics at any events previously, you probably aren’t an arsehole. Probably.
