Being a Blogger.....

I saw the Being a Blogger tag on someones blog (So sorry I forget who) but it lead back to Life With Baby Kicks who started it....



Being a Blogger.....is seeing your kids do naughty things and capturing the moment on camera and thinking this will be perfect for the wonderful Wicked Wednesday linky showing real family life....

Being a Blogger.....is taking photos of the meals you eat. Especially when you are out....If you forget to take a photo you feel bad....

Being a Blogger....Is doing something and thinking this will make a great blog post....

Being a Blogger.....is having to bite my tongue a lot when it comes to issues about my girls school, family and personal things.... 

Being a Blogger.....is reading other peoples blogs and feeling like you know them.....Crying and laughing along with their latest post....

Being a Blogger....is knowing your postman well....He brings the goodies I receive to review....He thinks I have a shopping addiction....

Being a Blogger.....is not having a full day off....There is always a post that needs writing, a linky to join up to and a email that needs a reply....

Being a Blogger.....is learning something new everyday!

Being a Blogger.....is being in a fantastic community of like minded people who are there to support, cheer you on and give advice!

Being a Blogger.....means I do things I would never think of doing if I wasn't blogging....

Being a Blogger.....is having my girls say "Your the best mam ever" when I get a fantastic item to review!

 Being a Blogger.....is having to take a photo of everything before I let my girls have something...

Being a Blogger....Often has me wondering do the other mums on the school run know the in's and out's of my life even though they don't speak to me....

Being a Blogger....Means I have recorded our memories and in years to come the girls can look back on the posts...

Being a Blogger.....Gives the platform to get my thoughts and opinions out there....

Being a Blogger....means I am running around 10 minutes before my fella gets in from work trying to catch up on the housework...

Being a Blogger.....means I have to keep secrets! About products which haven't launched yet but you have samples in your possession....

 Being a Blogger....means that I can't sleep properly when I have a giveaway starting at midnight.....Just in case Rafflecopter doesn't work like it is supposed to....

Being a Blogger....Means I spend way too much time on Twitter....

Being a Blogger....is Inspiring! I have read food, craft and other parenting blogs which have made me do activities which my girls that I wouldn't have thought have doing a few years ago....

Being a Blogger....is my life now! I can't imagine not blogging!

Being a Blogger.....is the best thing I have ever done!!

  4. He he - definitely yes on the photos. Of everything - even if you don't use them - you can't if you don't have them. Even MOH now says when we're eating out don't you want to photograph this, so I sort of feel obliged too :)

  7. I'm nodding in agreement to these, whoever thinks that the life of a blogger is easy haven't tried getting to sleep when you are writing a blog post in your head.

  11. this is so fab! re the housework - top tip - do things in 5 minute blasts. So when you go to stick the kettle on, wipe the kitchen down etc stops the mad rush ;)

  12. I recognise most of those, especially taking photos of everything "just in case"

  13. It's a great hobby. Had to laugh about the Rafflecopter starting at midnight thing. I did think about paying for the enhanced subscription - maybe one day. And my two are not allowed to touch anything till it's photographed either!
