What I've learnt - 6 months of blogging

When I started blogging I had no idea what I was getting into or how it would make me feel (or whether I'd have enough to fill a blog with). I'm still a newbie and still have a lot to learn but so far I've found out:

1) Its good to be part of something bigger
Whether its a blog network such as Netmums or Britmums or Hello Cotton, it's good to be involved and look at forums and other blogs.

2) Bloggers are friendly
I had no idea that there was such support out there and every one is genuinely helpful and friendly. It's so lovely to receive comments and if you have an issue there is always someone who comes up with some great advice.

3) It's all far too addictive
From checking stats to looking at other blog posts, I find I'm often checking my phone or laptop. If I'm not doing that then I'm usually writing a blog post or jotting down ideas. 

4) Everything is connected
I found Instagram fairly early on and now can't stay away, it's great to see what other people are doing and the food pictures are mouthwatering sometimes. Twitter is also far too addictive and I have to limit myself to evenings only as otherwise Bubba will get a bit neglected. The best bit is that if you need advice, it's at the end of a twitter conversation or if inspiration is required then I only have to check out the pictures on Instagram.

5) You learn so much
Reading blogs is brilliant and I receive a daily log of all the new posts from my favourite blogs. For instance this month I've learned how to get ace nails keepingupwithejoneses, make lovely and clever things to keep Bubba entertained Jennifer's little world and a whole new level of cuteness from the Pretty.Little.Things ladies.

So happy six months blogging to me and here's to the next six!
