Who would have thought that seven years ago, when I first started this blog, that it would still be going all these years later. It is older than both my children, it has brought with it so many amazing opportunities and so many challenges along the way.

We’ve gone from Blogger to our own domain on Blogger to self hosted WordPress. We’ve gone from a primarily beauty blog to a parenting blog to the happy medium I am now – which is a little bit of everything but if I had to give it a niche, I’d say parenting and lifestyle.

This blog has enabled me to forge a career doing something I love. I always wanted to be a freelance writer and was even heading to uni to get my degree and then hopefully break into the writing business. It might have taken me a bit longer but I am finally doing a job I love – no matter how stressful it can be -and that wouldn’t be possible at all with this blog. I freelance around the blog and I have had so many opportunities because of it.

The best thing that has come from my blog? The friends I’ve made. The majority of the friends in my life now are through blogging. I even managed to reconnect with two old friends via blogging – how amazing is that?

These past seven years have been incredible and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.

To thank my readers for being there for so long, I’ve got a giveaway for you all today for a Ferrero Golden Gallery. It’s UK only and ends at 23.59pm on the 31st of January 2018. Good luck!

  3. Happy 7 years blogging, that’s an incredible achievement. I’ve been blogging 3 years next month and like you I’ve changed my direction of the blog to suit my life and I think it’s nice to see the growth and development not only as a person but also on how we interact with each other.

  10. My friend liked your page on facebook and it popped up on my page, therefore I found you through a friend, through facebook πŸ™‚
