Ten months. I’ve been blogging for ten months now.
I started mostly out of curiosity , I wanted to see what it was all about.
Try something new.
See if I could do it.
Over the ten months I’ve have had blogging highs and blogging lows.
One of my biggest highs was having posts featured on the mumsnet front page and ” autism today ” in the same week.
Sometimes I love it , mostly I love it , but sometimes I feel a bit meh! Towards it.
I’ve stopped caring about charts even though I was doing well. It was pressure and I only blog for an escape , not more pressure.
Looking back over my posts I can see for sure that my writing has got better and more confident.
But my grammar is terrible. So my 15 year old yells me
I’m still not a planner.
I usually write posts in bed on my phone. I’ve often written them on the bus. And I never plan or know what to write. I know what I want to write about but I let the post come out of my head naturally.
I’m not sure how well that works but people are reading so it can’t too bad.
I have regular readers aswell as comments from regular people too.
Which makes me really proud.
And people say such lovely things , lovely comments about the blog.
many times now I’ve been thanked for writing a post.
It’s amazing when that happens.
I’ve also got so much advice through my blog
Sometimes I worry about what I write about but I think that’s the niche I’ve fallen into. And I’m happy here.
I always worry that my posts are not intellectual enough and I’ve come to realise I’m not a funny person.
But I am honest , and genuine.
What I write is totally me and what I feel from my heart.
Through blogging I’ve become more confident and I’ve found a place where I can have a voice about autism.
One of my blogging lows is that my linky thing ” roll up roll up show us your blog” hasn’t taken off.
I know some people are cynical about Linkys , do they just get more stats for the host ? but I genuinely did it to find and share new blogs.
I love to share other people’s blogs. I love retweeting good posts.
I just don’t know the how’s and whys of making a linky work.
I will be sticking around in the world of blog for a while yet and hopefully make my writing better and become even more confident.
THANKYOU if you are a new reader or if you’ve been reading from the start.
Every view and every comment is appreciated. I am genuinely so excited to get comments or likes.
Blogs don’t really work without readers , so thanks again readers for sticking around.
