1. If you are given the Blog Bug award, you must answer the questions that follow and the title of the post should be "I Got Bitten by the Blog Bug".
2. You must give the link of where you originally got this award and you can tag as many bloggers as you want. Link their pages on the post and also inform them through comments in their blog.
1. When and why did you start blogging?
In January of this year- I'm a still a 'newbie' to the world of blogging. At the point when I started blogging, I'd already been following other bloggers for about a year and loved the idea of documenting your life but also having an interactive and community element that a diary just doesn't offer.
2. What do you love to blog about and why do you like it?
My favourite blog is probably just my 'Sunday Summary' as it tends to just cover the usual things we do on a weekend. Important events in life (birthdays/ holidays etc) are easy to remember but I love being able to just look back on what we were doing at that point on an average weekend. I imagine the satisfaction of this will grow even more when I have years to look back over, rather than just months.
3. How did you get your blog name?
It's our family name and the blog was intended to be our story- it was that simple (plus, being an English teacher, I'm a sucker for a bit of alliteration).
4. What do you think is your best post yet?
Is that not for the readers to decide? I enjoy writing all my posts (otherwise I wouldn't bother), but I guess it was pretty exciting to share the news of our pregnancy.
5. What is your inspiration for blogging at present?
My 'Inspired by you guys' posts document a few of the things that have inspired me from the net and I always link them back to their original source. I love all the ideas you can get from the net, my favourites are recipes and easy crafts.
In my day to day life, my pregnancy is pretty all consuming although I don't want my blog to become consumed by it! It's great to share bits and pieces, but I think it's generally only close friends and family who want to hear every detail of your pregnancy!
6. Message for your readers?
Just a simple thank you: firstly for all of your inspiring blogs and secondly so I don't feel a bit strange just writing off into the abyss! It's lovely to get your feedback.
Leticia- My Everyday Fairy Tale- pop over and check out her blog and her gorgeous new baby.
'Peanut'- A handful of peanuts- another beautiful mother with a new baby.
Tabetha - The Closet Intellectual - ANOTHER stunning mother (are you getting the theme here); she's one of the bloggers I've followed for a while and I look forward to her posts. I'm convinced if we lived near each other, Tabetha and I would be great friends!
And last but most certainly not least, thank you to Sneha at Sneha Says for the nomination. xxx
Pregnancy PS- it's our 20 week scan today- so excited! I really want to find out what we're having but Steve doesn't- how frustrating! I'm secretly hoping he may fold and give in if I bed/ whinge/ annoy/ bribe him enough in the waiting room. I'll let you know how it goes.
