Being a Blogger...

The lovely Laura over at Life With Baby Kicks recently wrote about being a blogger and has created a "Being a Blogger" tag and has tagged me to write a similar post!

Being a Blogger is.....Not being to visit anywhere without thinking, hmmm this would make a good blog post! I love doing days out reviews and I purposely visit new places now so I can include on my blog

Being a Blogger is.....taking dozens of photos of everything, incase I ever need them for a post! Although most of the pictures on my phone are of Elliots face, he loves taking a selfie :)

Being a Blogger is.....Learning how to use the posh flash on my camera so I can take professional looking pictures for reviews. It's amazing how much difference it makes to pictures

Being a Blogger is..... Having a dedicated blogging notebook for my to do lists and blog ideas. I like to have a daily "To Do" list where I can make a note of any linkys I need to link up to, or any promotion I need to do for my own posts

Being a Blogger is.....working away on the laptop all evening while my husband works his way through Netflix. It's quite rare for me to sit down and watch anything these days..and if I do I usually end up falling asleep!

Being a Blogger is.....getting some amazing opportunities such as a holiday in Bluestone, Wales, what an amazing place! We've also been able to meet Mister Maker and see Mr Tumble live - things that wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the blog.

Meeting the very friendly Mister Maker at Butlins

Being a Blogger is.....meeting some fantastic new friends online and feeling like you've known them forever!

Being a Blogger is.....working with some brilliant brands such as Caboodle, Horns N Halos, Hotter shoes and Argos, I have been very lucky. Well, Elliot has also been very lucky because he has benefited from all these lovely products! (Apart from the Hotter shoes...they were all MINE!)

Being a Blogger is.....keeping my brain ticking over! It would be very easy to get bogged down by CBeebies and poo talk but blogging helps me explore my creative side and actually use my brain a bit more

Being a Blogger is......feeling proud when you meet people who tell you they love your blog. When I first started blogging I wasn't sure if anyone would read it (aside from family!) so it's lovely to hear positive feedback

So there you have it, my contribution to the Being a Blogger tag! I need to pass this on now so girls, it's over to you....

  1. This is lovely Elaine, I need to get buy a proper calendar book and get organised with blogging again!

    And to think if I hadn't started blogging I wouldn't be going to the gruffalo on Thurs :) xx

    1. I've just ordered myself an academic diary so I'll have a page per day, hopefully going to make it easier to keep organised! x

  2. Great #being a blogger post, i've just posted mine today #allaboutyounow

  3. Great post. I was tagged to do this today :)
    I love the photo of Elliott and Mister maker, he looks so happy!

  4. Love this post and all so very true! I can definitely relate to the first one - blogging has definitely encouraged me to visit new places :-)

  5. Great List! I'll get my mummy to have a think and write one over the next couple of days xx It's amazing the opportunities you can create for yourself through blogging :) x #TheList

    1. It really is, and I've realised that the phrase "if you don't ask, you don't get" is very true! xx

  6. I find too that it is always on my mind. I still find quite a few people who don't know what a blog is though. #momsterlink

  7. I can relate to a lot of these especially the photos!! ...its hard work juggling everything. You have worked with some great brands :) I am only just starting to get to grips with this but its great to hear how well you have done :) #Momsterlink

  8. In a professional review, you should also read about the price of the software and the limitations imposed by the trial version. Currency trading pairs are another thing that a good review will tell you about.

  9. I have just written mine, I loved reading yours. Blocking rocks :) ! Thanks so much for linking up to #TheList x

  10. Ahhh I can totally relate - I used to take loads of photos anyway, but now I take millions more just in case they'd be good for the blog. And I hardly watch TV now too, the poor other half haha. You're right though, it's so nice to keep the brain ticking over! Thank you so much for the tag, hopefully I'll get some time to write up over the weekend. Sabrina xx
