When I started blogging I didn’t have any goal or to be honest, clue what I was doing. I didn’t have anything particular to say. I didn’t have a plan or much of an idea about exactly what I wanted to achieve.
After a bit of time my blog became the one place that I could be me. It enabled me to be open and honest about how I was feeling and it gave me a place to put my thoughts down at a time when I desperately needed to.
Over the last six months it (you) provided me with support, understanding and friendliness that I have been in dire need of.
Admitting that you’re not happy following the birth of a baby isn’t easy. It’s a time where you’re expected to be happy, and thankfully the majority are. But it’s been good to know that I’m not alone.
Admitting that I have had times where I’ve felt like a terrible mother, worse still admitting that I’m not sure I love my baby took a huge amount of courage to put out there, but doing that has saved me.
From a personal perspective blogging has provided me access to a huge network of interesting, caring and generally wonderful people. I feel lucky to have found that.
I’m starting 2012 with a new name and a bit of a new look. I’m sad to see the old one go but it’s important to me that my blog reflects my life and can grow as things change.
Thank you all for everything; for the emails, tweets and for reading.
