We are one!

Well I can’t actually believe that I started this ‘bit of fun’ almost a whole year ago! I’m still enjoying having a go at blogging, but I would really like to up my game for 2018.  Yes I know we are now (almost) in February, but here are some aims and desires for the blog for 2018. I would really love to:

  1. Increase my followers on Instagram to 200.
  2. Blog at least once a fortnight.
  3. Post twice a week on the Facebook / Instagram pages.
  4. Apply to become a QBlogger.
  5. Increase my followers on Facebook to 150.

This year I want to take more photos of us a family and I’m hoping to take part in the #meandmineproject each month (reminder to do it tonight!).  The ‘Me and Mine Project‘ is an incentive to do more family portraits, on the last day of each month you publish a family photo.  This is the one thing we are rubbish at, they’re always just of the children!  I have started to keep track of my reading challenge a bit more by using the hashtag #awooereads2018.  I really surprised myself last year with the number of books I read and I’m enjoying trying some new ones so far this year.  The fitness challenge is still going well-ish, so I am hopeful I will keep this one going for the year and when the nights start getting a bit lighter, it will be easier to motivate myself to get out running in the evenings!

Honestly, sometimes finding a. the content, and b. the time to post can be difficult but I do enjoy it, but the most nerve racking part of it all is knowing people might not like what I have written.  I am by no means a ‘writer’, I have a basic B in GCSE English, so I am definitely not the most eloquent blogger around, and the suspect the grammar police would have afield day on my ramblings; BUT I am passionate about what I write and it comes from the heart.  This sounds very cheesy, but when I receive comments on the website, Facebook page or Instagram page, they really do make me smile.

So……..watch the Facebook page and follow us on Instagram for an amazing collaborative giveaway coming up in February………!!
