My Little Babog is one. Can you believe it?

Just a little recap for any newbies who have just joined me on my online adventure, I set up my blog a couple of weeks into maternity leave with Frankie while resting a broken foot. I’ve always wanted to be a writer but my grammar, spelling and punctuation always held me back and I suppose that is one of my biggest achievements with this blog. Throughout the past year I have improved in all aspects of my writing. I’ve become braver, more creative and one of my articles even featured on

It has been an extraordinary year full of ups and down. The support my readers showed to our pregnancy news was incredible, something I will be forever thankful for. I must also mention Kayla’s reaction to our pregnancy announcement going viral too, that was unbelievable. I have featured in Irish magazines – Maternity & Infant, Easy Parenting and Stellar. I’ve reached 6K followers and subscribers and I’ve had over 85K hits on the blog. I made it to the Best Blogger finals in the Stellar Shine Awards. I got to work with some amazing brands. I met some bizarre and amazing people. And then just as the year was about to end I won Best Newcomer Blog in the Irish Parenting Blog Awards. One of my proudest moments, being recognised and rewarded for something I would have just considered a hobby.

On that note I have decided to make a few big changes. I have decided to go self-hosted. I will begin vlogging, capturing and sharing more of our daily life. I’ve invested in a new Canon camera with thanks to Littlewoods’ monthly payment plan. And finally I am looking into starting an evening writing course. I’ve always wanted to be a writer and I’ve always followed my dreams and I believe the timing is just perfect.


On that note I will leave this blogging year with my teapot, a trophy that will be forever cherished and thank you all for your support over the past year. It has been an amazing year and I only have you my readers to thank for that.

As a reward, I have been working with some companies over the past few weeks and have an awesome line-up of giveaways to launch over the next few days. So keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram so you don’t miss any of them.
