So I've started a blog...

Postby 100years » 24 Mar 2012, 13:06

I've started writing a blog, it's a work in progress, but I'm spilling some of the fun stuff about life at the moment. :D And I'm hoping that as Pumpkin grows older more things will be in the blog and something to look back on when she is much bigger (which will never happen as she will stay small and cute forever)

It's a bit about BLW, which we started 2 weeks ago and the blog tied in with the start of BLW, a bit about my other interests, crochet, baking and hopefully some mummy running/swimming soon and also how my Pumpkin is getting on, and life as a Mum.

Please be gentle with me :)

Awww looks good. The only thing I'd say is I once read never post without a picture. Think it helps draw people in. Also you can use these pictures on Facebook and Pinterest and twitter erc to generate some traffic to your blog.... Currently what I'm trying to do and these other sites do help it.

But what you're doing is good and you've got a little cutie there! Am now a follower! Xxx

Ah, thanks MummaQ, I shall bear that in mind for my future entries. I can easily put pictures in :)

Thanks for following, you may be my first follower. :)

Your blog is great, good stuff on the crocheting, it's fab to do. :) How do you create tabs in bloodspot like you have got?

Brilliant, you use "free" images off the net if you don't have one to hand. These can come in handy!

You're welcome, I'll be keeping an eye on your BLW progress as we are fairly new to the process too.

To add tab, go to your dash board, click Design at the top of your blog, then there's an option called Pages on the left hand side. Add pages there. Then in your layout option on the left hand side, you can decide where your pages go.

Oh lovely, I can at least put some things in certain areas e.g. my BLW stuff separate to crochet stuff :) And I've followed you too. :D
