I wasn’t going to upload tonight, honestly because my heads been in the clouds and had zero motivation.
BUT … I looked at my phone to see lots of twitter notifications. So as you do I took a quick look and noticed that I had been nominated for another blogging award, by the lovely Susan from ‘Not A Lazy Susan‘. What a great start to the week, hey!
I’ve been following Susan and her blog since I signed up to Twitter she’s so down to earth and extremely supportive of other bloggers, which I love.
Her blog is based on so many topics, I feel like she caters for everyone. I particularly like the reviews and tips!
So thank you Susan for the award, I appreciate it a lot!💕

How My Blog Got Started
I always wanted to start a blog from my teenage years I did make one when I was 15 but no one knew about it,mainly because I wanted no one to find it and honestly I had no clue what the hell I was doing. So I deleted it. I thought about making another one for years but kept telling myself that no one would be interested in my life.
It wasn’t until my little bundle of joy came along that gave me the courage and a good reason to start a blog.
I planned to do it so I can write about things we’ve done together and do monthly updates on his progress. I saw it as an online scrapbook and I didn’t mind if no-one would read it, it was personal to me and it was something to keep me busy.
But fast forward 6 months and here we are! A lot of you are interested in what Logan is getting up! 🙂
Social media! Use it and using it I mean all platforms possible. I only had Facebook and Instagram, my Facebook is only limited to people I know and Instagram only had 900 followers at the time. I used to hate Twitter until I came across some great advice from other fellow bloggers. Twitter is the place that has made my blog grow the fastest mainly because the blogging community is so so supportive of one another and honestly? It’s so much easier to share a great blog on there too!
Mix all these social platforms together plus Pinterest and you are opening up endless possibilities to build up your audience.
If you’re new to getting the most out of social media, I’d advice researching on Google. Read other bloggers advice. Learn about tags and how to use them and your well set.
Also never be scared to ask for help on social media, fellow bloggers are your friends trust me.
Don’t overthink about your content or starting a blog for that matter. If you want to do it, just do it! If you enjoy what you write about and a bit of passion goes into your work, people will enjoy it.
The main thing about blogging is not to stress. It can be stressful to be organised but blogging should be fun!
So that’s it from me! If you’ve just discovered me, hello and welcome to my blog. It’s now my time to nominate other great bloggers who I truly think deserves the recognition. Make sure to check them out 🙂
