Ordinary Moments 2016 #21 Blogging and Me

This blog has had its own little space in my heart for just over a year now. I can’t quite believe where the time has gone if I’m honest and it’s so lovely to hear so many of my friends and family have started reading it (and enjoying it) as well as getting a reasonably regular following from fellow bloggers. 

My blog was always meant to be about our little family, A place to document our stories.
As the most important thing in the world to me I want to remember every little detail and although I obviously hold some things back it makes me smile to look back at what we’ve done in just the last year on this blog.

This blog is for documenting memories of days out whether on my own…….

….. Or with our little man.

To celebrate those little moments worth remembering, however small they may be ……..

……Or how big!!

I’ve also started documenting changes we have made to our little home and it’s so lovely to look back at all of these things.

Even if no one read my blog, it’s lovely for me to have this outlet
and place to store all these memories.
However it definitely makes me smile to see my stats doing better each month.

Now I really don’t blog half as much as I’d like and probably should if i want to build it up.
I join in with #littleloves (at coffeeworksleeprepeat) and the ordinary moments (at mummydaddyme) weekly and sometimes do nothing other than these.
I am trying to add an extra ‘me only’ post in between also, but sometimes I struggle with time (seriously where do weeks go)and sometimes with what on earth I should write about. I read other blogs (once again not as much as I’d like) and I’m in awe of their writing and photography skills and also of their ideas for their posts!
I’d love to spend more time on this little space of mine, but before I know it we seem to be back at the end of the week and I’ve still got a to do list the size of my arm and I’m not sure what I’ve done with my time.
It’s certainly not enough of what I want-I say I give up with the cooking and cleaning!


Blogging really has become one of my ordinary moments.
One of those things that i do within my week.
It’s part of my life now,one thing that comes naturally to add in to my norm.

    Ah i love this post Gem. Blogging is such an amazing thing to do, I am so glad I started mine all those years ago. I am struggling with time at the minute, plus also not wanting to put the baby down in the evenings. I am sure I will get back into a pattern eventually. I love reading your blog, whether it’s one post a week or three. xx

      Thanks Katie that means a lot, especially as Your blog was my main inspiration for starting it. It’s something you love doing but there’s lots of things that take priority and right now holding your little bird close is exactly what you need-enjoy, I have no doubt you are xx

    It is so tough finding the time – I would like to blog so much more but like you I struggle with time. I agree though it is wonderful having all these memories for us to look back on xx

      Its crazy where the time goes. Theres so many things I’d like to do more of but i’m lucky to get those few moments to throw down some ideas-usually on my iPhone on the wordpress app, i’m lucky if i turn the laptop on. Glad i’m not the only one Natalie x
