I remember back in 2008 when I published my first post I don’t think I was prepared for the journey that it would take me on. My first blog (Daily dose of me) started off merely as a journal to document my sewing progress.
If you still read my blog (thank you for being loyal) you have probably read numerous times on how much I miss blogging and that I have been meaning to get back into it. However it seems that as much as I want to I never seem to make it happen and it suddenly dawned on me this morning as to why….
Blogging purpose….my blog then had a purpose and now I seem to have lost it.
What is my blogging purpose?
Why do I want to blog?
What do I have to say?
Since I am a self-taught sewist and I clearly remember why I wanted to start a blog. It was not only meant to be an online journal but also as a motivational tool to keep sewing, to share sewing tutorials and to inspire others to take up this beautiful craft. I used to blog about the little projects I made and it was great to see how with every stitch I grew more confident. At that time I am pretty sure the ONLY ones reading my blog were me and my ever supportive mum. No pressure just sew and blog (when I can).
Fast forward to the present where I am happy to say that I have readers from all over the world, alhamdulilah. It comes as no surprise that the majority of my readers are women, between the ages of 25-40, 40% of them are mothers and have an interest in sewing.
My life has changed dramatically ever since I started working full-time, since my mornings are now spent behind a desk staring at a computer and not behind a sewing machine. After work I am on what i like to call mummy duty and I am ashamed to say that by 8pm I am knocked out and have no energy to hold a book let alone sew. I am sure many mothers out there can relate to this.
Which explains the lack of blogging, because since this is a sewing blog then I should be sewing LOL however as I don’t
have make the time then I feel I have nothing to blog about! I end up making videos instead
But good news is that this is all going to change…because i am determined to dig deep in me and find my blogging purpose again. So in the mean time while I figure that out can you answer a couple of questions for me?
Q1 What it is about my blog that you like?
Q2 Why did you subscribe or follow me?
Q3 What is it that you would like or expect to see more of?
