Me and my blog

Well, it's been an odd few months, since stepping into the world of blogging.
It's amazing.
It's like another world.
I instantly became signposted to so many aspects of social media I had previously just seen as a sideline.
From statistics, to ratings, to followers, to Twitter, to product reviews and competitions.
It's amazing.

I love other people's blogs, and not just their content- the layout, badges, linkies.
I enjoy reading posts (although I must get better at commenting from my phone). I get tiny bits of reassurance and confidence knowing other people are in similar boats.

And yet, I have to take a step back.
For me, a bit of an obsessive compulsive, it's a bit of an addict's paradise, there is so much to get involved with.
But the reality is there is so little time.

I love the fact I've got followers, I am so grateful for the comments (even though I still haven't figured out how to direct reply and end up just commenting myself!).

And, there's so much I want to do... like a whole new redesign!!

And then I breathe, and revisit my first proper post.
I must remember that I have a mantra: "To record the early days of my childrens lives", already it has become so much more, but I do like to think that maybe one day they'll read this and know so much about their mum.
I think the balance is the availability of technology. That nothing I experience is any different to my mum, but my mum just can't remember the details now. That one day I would like to reassure Seren that it happens to us all, what ever 'it' is. That we cope, and we have an amazing ability to do so, even if we can't believe it.

I love my blog, I am doing ok all things considered, and I have another string to my bow.
Maybe I should do a to-do list of all the things I'd like to do with my blog and try one a month!
