Only one more day till Halloween and it will be one whole month of blogging! I honestly can’t believe I’ve stuck to it. I usually start 30-day challenges, do well for the first week and a half then miss one day for one reason or another and think fuck it what’s the point, I’ve already missed a day what’s another, then I never start it again.
To be honest sticking to Blogtober has been challenging at times to think of post ideas, to keep on track and to fit in the time to write posts up. Some posts have been good, some have been bad but I’ve almost done it.
I think next year, if I take part in Blogtober or if I take part in Blogmas this year I will definitely plan ahead more to take the pressure off a bit. I’ve found myself panicking and staying up late when I should go to bed just to write posts so that I don’t miss a day. I’m so glad I stuck to it!
Now that Blogtober is drawing to an end I’m slowly going to start focusing on my Instagram again and go back to sharing other parents birth stories, parenting hacks/tips/advice. I plan on reverting back to my niche! I will still have a few random posts and I plan on posting more regularly than I was before Blogtober but maybe not daily.
What are your aims for after Blogtober?
So, I’m starting from scratch. All my original followers will know I was originally mombiediaries1.
I changed my name for many reasons, one was because I’d never actually said it out loud before and when I went to the baby show in Cardiff I realised I didn’t like the way it sounded I felt like an idiot saying it. So needless to say this was my main reason for the change. I also wanted to change it as I’m getting married in just over 7 months time (I’m shitting myself) and I wanted to have a name that had my new name in it, I wanted my page to be relatable to all parents not just mums and of course I had to have my other great love in there somewhere, hence the “brew”. Anyone who knows me will know I drink tea like there’s no tomorrow, I know I should cut back but I need all the caffeine I can get with two toddlers 14 months apart.
The only frustrating thing about me changing my name is I’ve had a few problems changing things over, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest have been fine but my actual blog I’ve had to change and my facebook page I’ve also had to change. Which is very frustrating as I was just starting to build my followers up. So to anybody reading this who are interested in anything parenting related feel free to give my page a follow and thanks for reading.
