Discovering New Blogs

Lynn C Schreiber over at Salt and Caramel has created a Discover New Blogs meme.  This is a great idea not only for new bloggers to go and shout about themselves but also for the more experienced bloggers to find new writers that they would like to read.

So following the rules that Lynn has set out:

My name is Sally and I’m a SAHM to two children, a boy who’s 5 and a girl who’s 3.  I also have a wonderful husband who works far too hard, is the chef of the house and is the rock of our family.

I started blogging 6 weeks ago.  The main reason for this is that I suffer from insomnia.  I don’t mean a few nights here and there of no sleep, I mean 7 phenomenally hard years where at my worst I was getting 45 minutes every night (this lasted for nearly 2 years and that was while I was pregnant and had our 2nd child.  At it’s best it’s 4 hours a night  (which is where I am now).  This has sent me pretty loopy in the past (and still does occasionally) however now that my youngest has started nursery 15 hours a week I am just able to cope so much better than ever before.  Anyway, I’m waffling, the reason I started blogging (and crafting) is basically so I have something to do at night when I’m awake and no one else is.  It keeps me sane and I’ve found that I’m really really enjoying it.  Not only am I enjoying blogging but I’m loving the whole social media world – it’s quite addictive isn’t it?

I think I am most proud of my very first post Hello Everyone – basically because it was my first.  It took me a long time to decide whether I was going to “come out” i.e. be myself or whether I was going to write under an alias.  However my most popular posts have always been my Ranty Friday one’s – I think everyone likes to read a good old rant 🙂

The post that I’ve had the best response to is my most recent Silent Sunday post.  I wasn’t surprised as it was just after I came out to my friends on Facebook so I knew my hits would increase over the next day or so.

Thanks so much for reading and thank you Lynn for starting.

Hello everyone!

So this is my first (of I hope many) blog posts and I feel a little nervous and dare I say a little silly too!!!!

Nervous because I’ve spent many years reading other blogs and thinking “wow they write so well” or “wow they are pretty cool” and unfortunately I don’t think I write well and I know I’m not cool!!!!!

Silly because writing this down is like thinking at night while you’re awake.  You’re talking to absolutely nobody so things just go round and round in your head and there’s never a solution so…… the question is why am I writing? Continue reading
