I started this blog in March 2009 as I thought it could promote my All Baby Advice website, which I created from scratch. I had to learn the html code and master the Joomla software. I can tell you, I almost experienced a nervous brake down when I created the website and then spilled a drink on my laptop...everything was gone...Would you believe it? It took me a few days to start again. From then I remember to back up all my work... This sounds like the situation with Carrie from The Sex and The City.... not so funny when you experience it in real life! Then I had everything ready, but couldn't put the website online... After two weeks I found a web hosting company and they helped me with that.
I spent 6 months creating it. It wasn't easy, but I really enjoyed it. My mum was living with us at that time and helping me with tiny Isabelle, 6 months old at that time. Can you imagine coming to a foreign country, not knowing the language and leaving your husband, my father, behind to spend a few months with your daughter and granddaughter? I love my mum and thank her so much for doing so. I think my parents are the best parents in the whole world and only wish I will be such a great parent to my darling Isabelle.
Then somebody told me about blogging. So I started this blog and thought it would bring a lot of traffic to my website. That didn't happen. And do you know why? I think the main reason was that blogging was not very important to me at that time, I just used it to introduce new voucher codes, introduce new products and it was all very impersonal. Then something happened. Thanks to Twitter I came across a few mummy bloggers and started reading their posts and really enjoyed it. That's when I realised that was what I wanted to do too. Share my live with other mummy bloggers. It has been only a few months since I have been blogging "with my heart", but I have to say I am really enjoying it.
Last Saturday I went to Cybermummy and met some of you, mummy bloggers, and it was very emotional for me. I was so excited about it, I felt sick before going, but will never forget my first meeting up with the mummy bloggers and tweeps. Now I feel I am a real mummy blogger and cannot imagine being without it.
