I got into blogging originally because I went through a stage of buying all the things and decided I wanted somewhere to write about them. My first post introduced me and what I was about.

After a while it became somewhere to share things about myself. I enjoyed blogging about the ups and downs of life and treated it a bit like an online diary. I felt like I could open up about things that I didn’t share in real life, like my post admitting that life wasn’t ok. This coincided with finding a really supportive community on Instagram where I could be very open about our fertility struggles and IVF. Instagram sort of became my mini blog and I neglected the blog.
More recently I realised that I wanted to pick the blog back up again to write about parenting and connect with other parent bloggers. After looking back over the old I realised that it had kind of lost its identity. I decided to be brave, say bye to it and launch Little, Big and Me.
I now feel like I’ve got a renewed love for blogging! I’m really enjoying building up content, through the help of Blogtober, and finding new ways to connect with others.
What brought you to blogging?
