Blog Your Heart Out

I’ve been tagged by BooRooandTiggerToo to take on the Blog Your Heart Out meme, which I’ve seen on many blogs and always enjoyed reading.

So what is the Blog Your Heart Out meme all about? It involves me answering five questions about blogging and then tagging a couple of bloggers to pass on the meme and keep the blog love going. Think of it as a modern day chain letter, just nicer!

So here goes:

Who/What encouraged you to start blogging?
When I was on maternity leave with Elliot I read a lot of blogs and opened up a world of fellow mummies wanting to capture memories for their kids as they grow up. I am worried that I am going to forget these days so I want to capture as much as possible on here, even if it’s just for my own enjoyment in future years!

How did you choose what to blog about?
Well, when I started blogging my whole world revolved around one small but quite demanding little person and I therefore wrote mainly about motherhood. We now have two of them. They are the main subjects of the blog, but I also enjoy posting recipes and comments on parenting issues. I’m sure the subject matter will vary as my children grow up.

What is something most people don’t know about you?
That would be telling! To be honest I’m pretty boring so there’s very little that people don’t know about me. I used to do Irish dancing when I was little and was in Oxford’s version of Riverdance (not quite as exciting as it sounds, but very fun nonetheless!)

What three words describe your style?
Hmm, I hate these types of questions. I’d say my blogging style is sporadic, I’d like to think that I’m quite organised (just don’t look in any of our cupboards!) and currently my husband would probably describe me as sleepy (we have a 4 month old, ok?!)

What do you love to do when you are not blogging?
Looking after our two boys takes up much of my time. I’m currently on maternity leave and will be returning to work later this year (my logistic skills will be tested then so I’d rather not think about it just yet!) I love creating things – recent projects have included a dress for my niece, a half finished amigarumi ‘Duck’ (from ‘Sarah & Duck’) and a cardigan for Alexander. I love to try my hand at anything from jewellery making to crochet and an hour spent in a craft shop is never boring for me!

So that’s a bit more about me, and now it’s my turn to pass the baton on to some really lovely bloggers:

Rambling Through Parenthood
This Mummy Loves
Tattooed Lady With A Baby
Little Jampot Life
Simply Sophie
Mummy M’s Memories
Poole Mamma
Beetroot Brownie
Emily and Indiana

Go for it ladies!

  1. I’m not a creator at all so I’m always fascinated by anyone who can knit/sew/make anything! I can’t imagine what Riverdance must have been like but I used to perform when in primary school and still remember the fun before and after the performances πŸ™‚

    • Performing is such fun when you’re a kid. Hope my boys get a chance to do something like that when they’re older (probably not riverdance though!) Thanks for your lovely comment x

  2. Seriously you are SO allowed to be described as sleepy when you have a four month old to look after! Although I’m still sleepy now and my youngest is almost 4 πŸ˜‰ Thank you for the tag! I will try and get this done very soon xx

    • You’d be surprised how I can combine all three descriptions simultaneously at the moment! Wish I could post more often and in some sort of routine, but that’s a pipe dream at the moment πŸ™‚

  3. Great to read a bit about you. We love capturing the memories on our blog for our kids to look back on. As they are getting older, they love reading the blog themselves and seeing what we’ve written about them too! x

    • I’m going to find it very interesting when my boys start reading the blog. I do wonder if I’ll end up changing the topics I write about once I know they’re part of the audience…

    • Ha that made me giggle. My duck is looking much bigger than I had originally intended and is currently without any wings or feet so I can’t really claim to be much good myself!

  4. I was wondering what that meme was all about, and you described it beautifully! Love it! And with a 4 month old, who wouldn’t be sleepy? πŸ™‚

  5. I have never heard of this before but it is a lovely way of introducing yourself and your blog to others! You are entitled to be sleepy with a 4 month old! I am still amazed that people like you blog with kids so young. How do you find the time πŸ˜‰

    • Hi! Thanks for your comment. Amigurumi is a type of Japanese crochet, it’s meant to be really tiny and cute but my duck currently looks a bit ridiculous!

  6. Thanks for including me! So many people seem to be into crochet atm, I would probably take it up if my little one wasn’t so demanding haha! Will write mine soon πŸ™‚ xx

If you've enjoyed this post, please leave a comment to tell me so - I love reading them x
