I'm a blogger ..Oh yes I am !

I'm a blogger..oh yes I am!
Back late last year my neice Emma who has a fab blog called Mama Syders told me about blogging. My first reaction was "why" ! I did not understand why someone would do that and for what reason. She was very patient with me, and sat and helped me set up my blog.My son Matthew also  helped with the design for me, and its the super wee lady in the header thats down to him.

I made a couple of posts then lost interest!!
Then around Feb this year she said " Aunty you have a nice looking blog.... write on it"! So I thought why not give this a go!

One of the many question a new blogging may find like me to answer is, "what do I write about" ! I didn't know what at first but then as time goes along you do find you have more and more to say.
I was also very scared of making a mistake or upsetting someone, and it made me very nervous at first of sharing my blog. I started as I have gone on and talk about my life really. I'm not a young mummy blogger but I am still a mum. So a big part of my blog is family and how special they are too me.

I'm still learning everyday and look to other bloggers for help and inspiration to make my blog better.
I really love it now and about from my craft its my favorite hobby and I thank Emma for that.
I properly still going to make mistakes and for that I'm sorry but as a 53 year old newbie I hope you will forgive me!
So go and blog it will open out a whole new world!


  1. I love your blogs Miss Jill, you give me a reason to smile when I read your updates... miss you much! Hope you have a wonderful day...

  2. I love blogging too.I started my little blog early this year as I thought that it would be a good way of keeping a record of our wedding preperations and it's there for anyone out there to read as well. Although I have no idea why they would want to. It opens up a whole new world and its a great way to express yourself. Have fun with your blog. It's a great read! xx
