Blogging Behind The Scenes- Do Stats Matter Diddly Squat Or A Lot?

Welcome to this weeks edition of the ‘Blogging Behind The Scenes’ series. Throughout the ‘Blogging Behind The Scenes’ series both myself and a group of bloggers will be sharing our experiences and advice upon a range of blogging related topics, this week we are discussing statistics and whether they matter diddly squat or if they may just matter quite a lot.


Do Stats Matter To Me?

When I first began blogging stats meant very little to me as in all honesty I was more than aware barely anybody other than my personal friends and possibly family read my blog. I wasn’t writing it for anybody other than myself and therefore stats mattered very little to me.…

Perfect Parenting- What Kind Of Mother Am I And Does It Even Matter?

Life BC (Before Children)

I often think back to the days prior to having kids and wonder what exactly it was that I did with my spare time or come to think of it my spare finances. I sure didn’t save any pennies back then that’s for sure! What the hell did I do B.C (before children)?

Becoming a Mother or a Father, a parent should I say certainly changes people. No longer are you able to fully focus on your own desires or dreams because you now have a little person to look after, you are now responsible for another life.…

#MySundayPhoto – The Perfect Storm

Having enjoyed almost a week or more of continuous sunshine we were well overdue for a storm. The storm was said to arrive yesterday but despite the clouds looming ahead, the pitter patter of rain and the odd rumble of thunder there was very little to report.

Sadly the storm missed us by miles, the downpour may have watered the plants but otherwise it was a bit of a let down.

I love a good storm, especially if I’m sat watching from somewhere warm, cosy and comfortable as the sky becomes thick, clouded and angry, the faint rumbles of thunder in the distance followed by that electric flash.…

#LittleLoves – Birthdays, Bikinis & Blog On

It’s Friday again and that can mean only one thing, it’s the weekend and of course time to reflect upon the past seven days identifying a few of my #LittleLoves along the way. So without further ado here goes…



I spent the majority of my time last Sunday desperately trying to read the many name labels attached to the hundreds of bloggers milling around ‘Blog On‘, a national blogging conference which I attended for the second time around.

I learnt so much from the day but unfortunately one of the biggest life lessons I have learnt from that particular weekend is to make sure that things are definitely on charge when you plug them in and to watch the speed as you travel along sections of road marked with temporary speed alternations.…
