Two years ago I sat down on my phone and tapped out my first ever blog post.
Back then I was on blogger and had no idea what I was doing but I knew I wanted to write. It went from a predominantly online diary type blog, it was something I did sporadically when I felt like it and felt like I wanted to document it. But in June 2014 Twinderelmo became so much more.
It’s been my place of outpouring whilst trying to digest losing my much adored and beloved Mom. I realised it was OK to write it here and without it there would have been many darker days when I had bottled up my emotions instead of sobbing my eyes out while carthatically putting the misplaced energy into a blog post.
I’ve made some amazing friends these past two years, gone to places I never would have even thought of going and had some bloody amazing blog moments but above all – I’ve had a hobby. With a husband that is away a lot, it’s become a solace and something that I can call my own.
My blog is pretty eclectic and whilst I’m not a polished, perfectly squeaky clean blogger I am happy with it. Sian from Potty Mouthed Mum has made me realise that I don’t need to beat m myself up because I haven’t written an amazing post that goes viral or that I am not top of all the blog charts. This is my blog and it can be what I want it to be.
So thank you to each and everyone of you who have joined me on my journey – some of your words have made me laugh and made me cry but most of all made me smile. Thank you all! Now, before I start thanking God I am going to give you guys something back.
