Being a blogger…
Dear Mummy, you were recently asked what being a blogger was really like by Entertaining Elliot. So here’s my mummy’s truthful and honest list.
Being a blogger…sometimes means that my mummy doesn’t spend as much time as she would like talking to loved ones and friends. There’s not enough hours in the day! You see in the evenings while I’m asleep, my mummy’s time is spent researching and writing, browsing on Pinterest or superglued to her phone on Twitter. This means she doesn’t get much time to just chill out with Daddy and chat. My mummy is working on this and she has made the decision to have a couple of evenings to put the phone down and reconnect with her family. Part of the #EmbraceHappy lesson learnt at BritMums Live. In blogging sometimes less is more. My mummy loves blogging and finds it a great creative outlet.
Being a blogger… It has its good sides as well! Finding opportunity and beauty in everything you do. You are documenting, recording and photographing which is sometimes better than a sketchy memory. You’ll look back in years to come with daddy and will be thankful you captured all the wonderful adventures we had.
Being a blogger…means you get to try out new things. Whether it be a new attraction or product you’re there to review it, test it, love it or loath it. You feel that your opinion matters and you also want to help and influence others, even if it’s on a small-scale.
Being a blogger…can be a full-time job. It takes a lot of commitment, social media interaction, research, traveling and passion about your subject. It’s hard work, seriously. To constantly market yourself and create posts. It keeps you on your toes and your mind active. My mummy has found this out the hard way *she was feeling overwhelmed last week* and it’s a fine balancing act between her 9-5 job, blogging and quality family time.
Being a blogger is…different for everyone. From ‘super-bloggers’ to ‘hobby-bloggers’ from ‘dip-your-toes-in bloggers’ Blogging can be fun. A good creative outlet for your mind. It’s great to work with brands and support local businesses and it is productive and rewarding. Just make sure it doesn’t consume you 24/7….or you might turn into a BLOGGING MONSTER! Ahhhhhhhhhhh!
