I started this blog last year, I think it was November. Though I didn’t really tell anyone about it for a good few weeks.
What they don’t tell you about blogging is, it’s addictive! I find myself constantly thinking, ‘Ooh that’ll be good on the blog’ or making mental notes of things I’d like to write about.
When I started I envisioned sharing a lot about my kids lives, and I have. I never for one second thought about how they might feel about this or that this might bring me into contact with some sick people! Stupid of me on both counts.
And honestly, kids are cute! They’re cuter than me and make great pictures. People LOVE cute pictures of kids and that’s been my bread and butter I feel. Essentially using them to increase a social following of people I don’t know from Adam.
I’ve decided going forward, I want to be a Mum who blogs about her life, not a Mum who blogs about her kids lives.
Of course they will still feature, they are a massive part of my life but they are not (some may find this shocking) my whole life.
So what can you expect from Handful of Halfpennys from now on?
I have absolutely no idea!
But I’ll give it a go, try to make myself as interesting as possible (though I have just photographed a mug of green tea so don’t hold too much hope) heck, I might even take up a new hobby just to tell you about it! (Unlikely).
I hope you’ll stick with me as I venture into the unknown.
I like to think the blog will now be like a little apartment or annex just for me, very much a part of my home but tidier maybe, less cluttered, without a whiff of wee now and then. Aint that just the dream?!
