I have been thinking about my blogging journey and looking at how I want my blog to develop. This got me looking at lots of other different blogs. So far, I have found about five different types of blogs.
1. To record their life
2. To raise awareness for a cause Continue reading “Why do people blog?”
It’s been a while since I blogged and I didn’t even manage to complete the blogging 101 course but I’ve decided that I’m going to try and blog every Friday mornings. I’ve got nothing new to say really nor have I got a theme for the Friday morning blogs but I am going to attempt to blog every Friday’s at least, even if it is a short post.
I’ll start off with an update. I’m still attempting to do juicing, not as religiously as I used to but I’ve got my favourites and I do those whenever I can. Although I would like to try some vegetable or green juices. I’ve recently acquired a desk in the corner of the kitchen which seems to take over the whole of the dining area – an area originally dedicated as a play area for the girls so I’m feeling a little guilty about that. I’m still not sure if I like the size of the desk, it feels massive!
I’m hoping to do the blogging 101 in the future some time this year and as they have it every month, hopefully, I will find a month I can carry on. The Bikram yoga timetable has changed a bit which has left me free on a Friday morning. I do plan to do some of my own exercise but I need to get myself into a routine first. I haven’t completely stopped Bikram Yoga but I am enjoying having the Friday morning free to myself. I think if I cultivate little habits, then eventually it will turn into a routine.
To end this blog, a random quote just because I want to!
‘ Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.’ Saadi
What I forgot to mention in the first post is how I came about blogging. For us geeky accountants, there is a specialist accounting website called AccountingWEB. I posted several blogs on there about how hard it was to be a good mum and still be an accountant and whether I wanted to work, stay at home, work full time, part time, for someone, for myself and all my whingeing got me noticed and promoted to a featured blogger!
When I first started blogging, I called myself novice blogger because I had no idea what I was doing. To be honest, I still don’t which is why I’m doing this blogging 101. When I got promoted to feature blogger on AccountingWEB, I got asked if I wanted to change my blog title and add a picture which I excitedly did.
However, as it’s an accounting website, I feel guilty blogging too much mummy stuff. It just doesn’t seem right and so I came over to here so I could blog about anything I wanted.
For ages I remained anonymous (I think) but with a little slip here and there, I don’t think I am anymore and I’m not sure if I mind too much. However, I still don’t have the guts to share my blog links on Facebook or Twitter or any social media websites.
I’ve been blogging for a while but I’m not very consistent. With it being a new year, I’ve decided to start again and see if I can come up with a topic to blog about.
If you have seen other posts on this blog, I’m a mum, an accountant and then there’s a section which doesn’t fit in to those categories. With it being the new year, I’ve also decided that I want to do another million and one things.
So firstly, I’ve been going Bikram yoga for a while and I’ve decided that I want to learn all the I can about each of the 26 postures we do. Not necessarily be able to do them perfectly but learn why we do each one and is benefits.
Secondly, I’m reading a book about wine and it’s so interesting and it makes me want to learn about wine. I’ve not really got a plan for that except read the book and do some of the things it asks you to do.
Thirdly, eat healthily and cook, juice, exercise more.
Fourthly, spend more quality time with my daughters. Play with them, read, do exercise, go out and teach them stuff.
Finally, and the most important, is to keep on top of tax and accounts and get up to speed on that and as I’m working for myself, get more clients.
So, this seems to have just turned into a new years resolutions list and it’s a day late so not a good start but I’m going to keep going and hopefully find something good to talk about (well blog about!).
