I’m a bit excited today and it’s given me a smidge of confidence.
If you haven’t voted yet, please consider gumdrops and the bear for ‘Best New Blog’ at the MAD’s and Fresh Voice in the Brit Mum’s BIB’s.
- We’ve hit over 1000 on Twitter!!! Yee-ha and thank you for bearing with
- I’m registering at companies house and setting up as a Limited Company for my freelancing work. This shizz just got real. I must be a grown-up now?
- I’ve got a dapper new blog home page – it looks a tad more profesh (I think)
- The sun is shining and we’re just back from a wonderful stay in Isle of Wight. We’ve fallen in love with this new island and are plotting our imminent return.
All this excitement has gone to my head. I’m feeling emboldened and grown-up enough to do a tiny bit of self-promotion, which like many, I loathe. It’s a fundamental flaw that I am going to conquer on this brave day.
I started gumdropsandthebear.com in November 2015 – so we’re 4 months old and loving it large.
My X-factor pitch … I started my blog from my sick bed. I’d been proper poorly with a lung infection and was working from home and sleeping a lot <camera closes in, sad music fades up>. It was a bit of a low and lonely time. Having spent months following and giggling at other blogs, I decided to do something positive and give myself a new focus. I started my site with help from my husband (cable boy) and got tweeting and now GDATB is my 4th baby (behind Doug the cat).
It’s been the busiest and most creative 4 months, during which we’ve been proud to be featured on the much missed pottymouthedmummy , the truly awesome motherhoodtherealdeal and the rather magnificent morganprince
We’ve also been chuffed to have been selected as featured post on some of my favourite Linkys:
#coolmumclub #SundayStars #Bigpinklink and picked up by the lovely Lorraine Kelly @reallorraine
We (cable boy, gumdrops, the bear and I) would be absolutely thrilled to bits to get your nomination. Thank you!
