I have suffered from bloggers block a bit this weekend. It is probably the first time since I have started blogging that I have sat down at Sam’s naptime, opened up a new post and not had a clue what to write.
This week has been uneventful. Sam has had an infection which has required antibiotics so has not been in the best of moods due to the side effects of said antibiotics. When I have weeks like this, I don’t get a lot of inspiration for posts. There are no exciting trips to the farm or humorous parenting antidotes as to be honest there is nothing humorous about a 2 year old with a sore bum. There isn’t much humour in trying to persuade him to take bright yellow, sickly sweet smelling medicine and don’t even get me started on the chocolate flavoured constipation medicine, which doesn’t look like chocolate so is impossible to convince him that it is a ‘treat’.
I like to write about fun and exciting things that we do, after all this is primarily a diary for us as a family and I don’t really want to look back at the boring antibiotic filled days. It made me wonder if to be a blogger I need to have an ‘exciting’ life, an endless budget to have fun filled days of treats, farm animals and photo worthy scenes.
Then I realised that this isn’t the case at all.
The blogs posts I like to read are often about peoples every day lives. The little bits and bobs that people get up to. When I watch vlogs I like to watch daily vlogs or weekly vlogs where people are just taking us along for the ride; the car trips to the supermarket, the walks to the park and the nursery run. I read somewhere that you should write the blog that you want to read so I am going to change my outlook on blog content from now on, hopefully my inspiration will return very soon as I feel a bit rubbish about my ideas drying up but from now on I will put a bit more of every day life in. The normal day to day runnings of our family and all that comes with it.
So to start us off, here are some pictures of Sam in a tent in our garden. G is going away soon and he was airing out the tent, Sam had a ball camping in the garden.
Have a lovely day.
