I tweeted last week that my blog was turning one month old today and toyed with the idea of a “Things I learned in my first month of blogging” kind of post- but I’ve learned a lot, and given that a fairly large portion of it has come from my mum, I wouldn’t want her getting too big headed (you had your moment, Mama Jan). It took me a long time to get around to blogging though, and it seems a mighty shame not to celebrate what I guess is one of the first milestones in what will hopefully be many more.
I’ve wanted to blog for ages. I used to set up little ones on blogspot or wordpress and get started but never keep it up, and I spent a shameful amount of my spare time following other people’s too. I was held back by fear- that people I knew would take the piss, that nobody would read, that I wouldn’t ~fit in~ to the blogging community. It’s silly, in hindsight, because I’ve done a ton of things that scared me before: moved away from home for college, got a degree, switched jobs a million times despite being terrified that nobody would like me, and blogging should be no different.
I’m one month, three theme changes, 16 posts and one haircut into taking the plunge and I am so far loving it. Here’s to many more months! And to finish, here is Daisy smiling like a fool because it will always tickle me.
