Lucky 7 Years of Blogging

Lucky 7 Years of Blogging

Today is exactly 7 years ago since I hit the “publish” new post button for the first time. My blog back then looked very different to what it looks now, and also the posts were very amateurish.

I am not ashamed, the opposite is the truth. I am proud for what I have achieved in 7 years and very happy to be able to combine my passion/hobby and my job, as being a blogger is bloody awesome!

In all these years I have met so many interesting people I would have never even dreamed off meeting and have also had been offered so many opportunities from brands that would never be in touch if I was not a blogger.

Isabelle and Olivia

Last Sunday my almost 9-year-old daughter Isabelle gave me the sweetest Mother’s Day card, which made me cry.

I am not going to share all the personal messages she had written, telling me why I am the best mum in the world, but I have to share one of them as it is closely connected with blogging.

She was also thanking me for taking her to all the movie premieres, and one of them was really amazing the latest Pan movie with Hugh Jackman. It truly was a red carpet experience, and hope we soon have a chance to attend another premiere.

As I am also very into fitness and health, I started Fitness 4 Mamas blog just over a year ago, and was very honoured to be voted as 1 of 5 finalists for the Best Fitness & Health Blogger 2015 by Blogger’s Lounge. This has opened just another door for me.

Blogging has not only become my profession, it has also given me the opportunity to meet and develop some amazing relationships with a few other bloggers, who have become my real friends.

If you follow me on Twitter, you must know about my blogging bestie Vicki from Honest Mum. She actually visited me and my family yesterday and we had an amazing time.

Uju from Babes About Town is also one of my oldest and closest blogging mates as well as Jackie from Mummy’s Little Monkey.

Blogging has changed so much over the past 7 years, and it’s fantastic to see these changes and all the opportunities blogging brings to bloggers!

My blog would not be as successful without you my lovely readers, so here is a huge thank you for reading and commenting on my posts and Instagram!
