What I forgot to mention in the first post is how I came about blogging. For us geeky accountants, there is a specialist accounting website called AccountingWEB. I posted several blogs on there about how hard it was to be a good mum and still be an accountant and whether I wanted to work, stay at home, work full time, part time, for someone, for myself and all my whingeing got me noticed and promoted to a featured blogger!
When I first started blogging, I called myself novice blogger because I had no idea what I was doing. To be honest, I still don’t which is why I’m doing this blogging 101. When I got promoted to feature blogger on AccountingWEB, I got asked if I wanted to change my blog title and add a picture which I excitedly did.
However, as it’s an accounting website, I feel guilty blogging too much mummy stuff. It just doesn’t seem right and so I came over to here so I could blog about anything I wanted.
For ages I remained anonymous (I think) but with a little slip here and there, I don’t think I am anymore and I’m not sure if I mind too much. However, I still don’t have the guts to share my blog links on Facebook or Twitter or any social media websites.
I’ve been blogging for a while but I’m not very consistent. With it being a new year, I’ve decided to start again and see if I can come up with a topic to blog about.
If you have seen other posts on this blog, I’m a mum, an accountant and then there’s a section which doesn’t fit in to those categories. With it being the new year, I’ve also decided that I want to do another million and one things.
So firstly, I’ve been going Bikram yoga for a while and I’ve decided that I want to learn all the I can about each of the 26 postures we do. Not necessarily be able to do them perfectly but learn why we do each one and is benefits.
Secondly, I’m reading a book about wine and it’s so interesting and it makes me want to learn about wine. I’ve not really got a plan for that except read the book and do some of the things it asks you to do.
Thirdly, eat healthily and cook, juice, exercise more.
Fourthly, spend more quality time with my daughters. Play with them, read, do exercise, go out and teach them stuff.
Finally, and the most important, is to keep on top of tax and accounts and get up to speed on that and as I’m working for myself, get more clients.
So, this seems to have just turned into a new years resolutions list and it’s a day late so not a good start but I’m going to keep going and hopefully find something good to talk about (well blog about!).
