WOW! It’s the middle of January already? When did that happen? 2013 has been & gone and 2014¬†is marching on ahead & I feel like I’m being left behind… ¬†I have soooo much catching up to do & I don’t know where to begin. I like to think I tackle life & work head on, at this time of year though with so much mounting up (the dreaded tax return to name but one obstacle!) I think I stumble slightly. Instead of my usual hey-gusto attitude, I want to lock myself in a cupboard and I have a daydreaming thought maybe, just maybe, if I ignore my ever growing to-do-list, it might by some miracle just get done in an instant? I’m pretty sure I won’t be alone in this thinking, especially in January!
I need to get the wheels in motion & maximise the potential of my blog. One sentence. That made it sound easy peasy! When? I’m struggling to find time… My little bear, is now a fully fledged toddellee waddeleee! To whom i find myself acting as an interpreter on a regular basis: translating his ramblings to others, that for some reason only a mother can understand clearly?! I can’t keep up with him, he is a Duracell bunny with no ‘off’ switch. I’d love to say that once the evening arrives I crack on with my blog/ work tasks, but I’m exhausted! Secondly, How? I haven’t got the technological savvy, know how or time to set up everything… I need twitter & instagram (to name a few) and link them back here. I need to sort out my blog SEO (that’s Search Engine Optimisation to you & me). I just about understand the concept of these, but it’s kind of a false economy to think it’s best for Me¬†to configure all of this. By the time I work it out and get around to doing it, I’m far better off hiring a professional ‘tech wizard’ to take care of it within a couple of hours. Again How? It would cost money, how much? I’m a full time mummy who is rubbing her pennies together… I feel an Ebay surge a-coming! And Where?¬†Does anybody out there know where I can find one of these modern day wizards? (I’m stuck by how similar the search for a reputable, trustworthy & good Tech wizard is to that of finding a Builder/ Plumber/ Electrician can be!) Suggestions on a post card to me, please!
Going forward, Posts that I intend to get up on here over the next month include: My Gluten Free Christmas Dinner, More gluten free eating, Traveling with a toddler-our favourite picks, My top rated baby & toddler equipment-for the first 2 years. If you have any requests then please get in touch & I’ll have a look into them (either comment on this article or via the mememe contact section).
…..i bid you a fond farewell 2013, and brace myself for the journey ahead through 2014. & I look forward to world blog domination (after all, what is January without some wishful thinking?).
