Hey everyone, First of all, Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed spending Christmas with your families and didn’t have to work too hard. In case you hadn’t already guessed, I vastly underestimated the reality of working in retail during the Christmas months: I’ve …
In case you missed it, I made an announcement on Twitter last month… I had a baby!
I’m absolutely over the moon, and glad that I can finally share the news. My partner and I decided to keep the pregnancy private – only telling family and extremely close friends – but with the baby arriving (yep, I’ve been keeping this a secret SINCE JULY! This is the reason I had so many blog breaks last year, and had to defer my second semester at university) it seemed like the right time to let you all know that there are going to be some changes to The Bumbling Blogger.
First up, there’s a good chance that the post frequency is going to go way, way down. Posting on every weekday is a goal that I’m not going to be strict about maintaining anymore: instead, I’m going to attempt at least two posts a week (not including Top Ten Tuesday, which I’ve written up until the end of May). I’ve still been posting daily for the past couple of weeks, because I had so many drafts written up, but I’ve burnt through them pretty rapidly and now I’m almost out – eek!
Secondly, I’d like to reveal the launch of a new section of the blog: Baby Bumble.
I’ll be showcasing baby products, as well as writing advice posts for new parents and helpful tips for pregnant people. There’s no such thing as a perfect parent or a perfect pregnancy, but hopefully I’ll be able to help at least one other mother-to-be. I’ll also be recommending the best board and picture books (I’m determined to make my little one into a bookworm as soon as possible).
I’m looking forward to this new challenge and to sharing my journey into motherhood with all of you. Thank you for your support over the past few years – you’ve made me comfortable enough to share this part of my life with you, and I’ve never been more excited.
