Baby Baby is one today!
Where has the last year gone? It has certainly been a busy and eventful year.
I want to start this post by saying a huge thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to anyone who has read, followed, commented on or linked to my blog. It is because of your support that Baby Baby does so well in the Tots100 index of UK parent bloggers.
I have made many wonderful online friends through blogging, far too many to mention by name. I have even met bloggers in real life through British Mummy Bloggers events (and I can confirm that they each only have the one head!) and I'm looking forward to meeting many more soon at Cybermummy.
I have started writing for pleasure, both on and off the blog. Thank you Jenn, Josie and Tim for encouraging and inspiring me.
I have enjoyed the odd freebie, none more exciting than the edible ones:
Not only are Chippidydoodaas are the best named snack in the world ever, they are also made from baked pitta bread and are DELICIOUS!
Thank you too to The Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company for sending me this box of gorgeousness in readiness for the World Cup:
I think there will be a few of us World Cup Widows about in a month's time, so what better way to cheer ourselves up than by ordering chocolate online!
The cherry on my blogging cake has been The MAD blog awards, sponsored by Butlins. I was happy enough just to be nominated, but was over the moon to hear that Baby Baby is a finalist in the Most Inspirational Blog category, sponsored by Plum Baby. I don't expect to win, after all I'm up against some wonderful blogs:
If you haven't voted yet, there is still time. The are 50 finalists, so plenty of wonderful blogs to explore before you vote.
Above all I blog because I enjoy it. I have limited time to spend on myself, but one year on I'm still as enthusiastic about blogging as when I started. Who knows what will happen in the next year?
