Welsh Mummy Blogs
I initially started blogging as a way in which to record my son’s growing up. I wanted to record all the great places we go and fun things we do. After a while, I noticed that people started to follow the blog over social media and that the posts that received the most likes or views were those about family days out or when I would review things.
Everyone thinks it’s easy to start a blog and become successful with it and that’s not the case. I didn’t realise how many bloggers were out there! Don’t be put off though. With good content and links, you can really succeed and have a lot of fun while doing it.
My blog started as a parenting and lifestyle blog. However, it’s since become more entertainment and review based over the past year. I find that I have adapted it to fit in with my personal likes and hobbies, not only what the kids like (I’m not just a mum after all!)
I have fun writing reviews for theatre, cinema and events. I’ve had many opportunities to review family-friendly events within Cardiff. The highlight of my blogging career so far has to be the Bafta Cymru Awards where I attended as press.
I reach my audience through social media – Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and am lucky to have found links with other bloggers and PR agencies. I do have a YouTube channel too which I use to upload videos to my written blog.
I am hoping to write more casting calls for TV and film and I like to move with the times – therefore as my boys get older, the content will change with them.
I love blogging. I love that I can do it in the comfort of my home at a time that suits me. I can take on as much or as little work as I wish and this works out perfect for my busy family life.
