It’s Tuesday…time for something a little different

I’ve been blogging for a month now and it’s fair to say that I jumped in feet first without any clear idea of my blog’s theme. A few friends had encouraged me to set one up as an easy way to share recipes, but I’ve noticed that these posts are actually the least popular!


I was also keen to participate in WOYWW and needed a blog to enable me to do that. I love having a nose around other people’s desks, seeing where they craft and the things they like to make. I hope that other people are interested in what’s on mine too. I plan to do a few more crafty posts in future, to show some of those projects in a bit more detail.

I am a lover of lists and know that lots of others are too, so Five Things I’m Loving This Friday was born. At the moment this consists of a typed list with links to some of the things I mention. I have thought about changing the format to include photos in the post, but I do quite like the simplicity of it.


I’m always interested to read about other people’s family lives, but until Sunday I hadn’t written anything truly personal. I wasn’t sure it was entirely appropriate, as the post was part of Mel’s blog hop, but it felt right somehow. I would like to write more about every day life, as a record for myself as much as anything and in the hope that it might strike a chord with other readers.


I know, from the kind comments, that a few of my friends visit and some fellow classmates from Shimelle’s blogging course, but what would be most likely to bring you back for another look? If you have a minute, I’d love you to take part in the poll and let me know what would keep you reading. Thankyou xx






Of course if you have more to say, then feel free to leave me a comment as well!

I've voted for a "bit of everything" ... I enjoy finding out more about you, but I also enjoy seeing your recipes.

I went for a bit of everything, too - like everyone else before me, it seems!! :-)

Irene said...

Yes! I like variety too! The fact that we do different things reflects life in general...voted too!

I really like the Five Things I'm Loving on Friday idea. I need to take more time to be thankful and actually list the things I love!

I voted for variety. Just found your blog through BBFS and the comment you left on mine. Thanks for stopping by.

You're doing well with your blog so far Fi! I do like the variety as it keeps a blog from getting too boring or too much the same. I'd love to see some of your projects though, and any tutorials. :D

Yes, I like blogs with a variety of posts, though don't give up on the recipes - I like those too and sometimes include one on my blog. I also link to nice recipes on other blogs - there's a special column on my sidebar, just for recipe links! Have you really only had a blog for a month? It looks so professional and you blog like you've been here for ages!
