I’ve decided to re-launch my blog (at last I hear you cry!!) I had it going a few years ago centred primarily around the launch of my online business Milksok, but also to scratch the writing itch that i’ve always had. The last blogs I wrote were much to do with how things were going with Milksok (an online kids clothing shop) and what new products were launching, or what I was creating etc. Then I fell pregnant with my third child and my writing just stopped. I was working 4 days a week at my day job whilst looking after my big kids as well as trying to create and make all the new pieces for Milksok. Writing a blog, regrettably, just didn’t seem like a priority.
Fast forward 2 years and my baby is over a year old, I’m back working my day job, Milksok is on an official hiatus and I find myself homeschooling my 8 and 6 year old because of covid-19….now seems like the perfect time to write again. I find myself writing, not necessarily for anyone, but hopeful that someone out there enjoys it! I love writing for myself but having an engaging audience does appease that very tiny narcissist in me that enjoys a wee bit of attention. Plus having 3 kids means that I really miss using this part of my brain!!
There will be no particular theme to the blog some days it will just be about my musings, my day to day life or something about my hobbies or interests. Other posts might be short stories or poems. I am really keen to celebrate other creatives in my life so I would love to share some of their stuff or invite them to write guest pieces to share their talents as well.Covid-19 will undoubtedly feature quite heavily as 2020 is shaping up to be a supremely surreal year! With the current climate feeling more like a disaster movie than real life I want to create my own digital outlet from my personal private island. That way we can all have a little platform to shout from and also in years to come when everything goes back to semi-normalcy I can look back and see what the hell we were all doing!
