The accidental #Blogger

So 6 months ago I entered into the world of websites, Blogs and great information gathering! I run a Mum to Mum Facebook group of 3,100 members and I was fed up (sorry) of the same questions being asked every day. I have no experience in this field, my spelling and grammar are not my best skills and i am still not sure what i am doing really!

I discovered several ways to start up your own website, buy web names and finally found WordPress! Once I found this, we were off. Now I am here and boy it is exciting!

So we created a ‘days out’ page, Local groups, Inspirational mothers in MK and Local charities in MK as charity work is a huge part of me. My Charity Journey is another story to tell but is an emotional one and may take some time.

This website has been great for the Facebook page which is wonderful, I love to be organised and I love to help.

I then decided to create a directory of all our local talent  and recommendations. Wondered if people would make a small donation to advertise on the Blog?

6 months later we have raised £940 advertising for charity. For a small donation they get a feature on the blog and a listing on the directory until September this year.

100% of my time & Donations go to The Henry Allen Trust through JustGiving.

Views all over the world, features shared in the UK and Worldwide, Raising awareness for The Henry Allen Trust and sharing wonderful advice / stories feels good.

I am leaning every day, I love reading other creative and interesting Blogs.

This how now unleashed my inner entrepreneur! Thanks to some awesome quotes from the man himself, Richard Branson.

So in 8 months I have relocated to Spain with two young boys and my Husband. We are running our Lighting company, I am learning Spanish, I am setting up Messy play sessions and Event Management in Spain and the ideas are endless.

How did this happen? I do not know but I am going to embrace it, enjoy it and #Live the #Dream

If I can do it….

So can you :o)

Thank you for following
