I've been thinking a lot lately about blogs, why I write mine, why I read others, which ones I like and don't like. My husband bought me a tablet computer thingy recently and the one thing I don't like about it (sorry honey) is that it's too hard to blog on. I can do most things I want to do (internet wise) on my phone now but for blogging it has to be the laptop.
I started this blog when the little Guy was about 10 months old. He was at that stage where he would play quite happily on his own for extended periods, slept a reasonable amount and wasn't getting me up at night. It was at this stage that I remembered that I had always liked to do crafty stuff. Sewing, knitting, cross stitch. I started my Christmas challenge to myself and really felt like recording my progress - hence the blog. Now 4 years on and we've added to our little family, I take my crafting much more seriously and I am in that most precious of positions - a stay at home mum/housewife.
I like to sell my craft items when I can, more so I can support my habit rather than becoming a crafting mega star, but it's not always easy. I have a lot of self doubt and can be overly self critical. I have been lucky recently to have received a few opportunities for promotion: my guest-blog at the CHA as well as this week's feature in 'The Best of the Web' at Pocketchange. I don't think I'll ever be blogging up there with the likes of Mrs Woog, Baby Mac or Posie but I try. I have made a bit of a decision to vary/expand the contents meandmy2guys. I have realised that the blogs I especially like reading and who make me LOL on a regular basis are the ones with wider subject matter.
So to this end you will be seeing a bit more randomness, home stuff, kids stuff, general nonsense from me here, as well as my craft stuff. I'm not quite up to going the whole Facebook hog yet for meandmy2guys but you can definately now find me on Instagram @meandmy2guys.
