The rewards of blogging & our birthday celebrations!

Good morning everyone! It’s our birthday!!

Today marks 6 years since the blog went live and since then so much has changed.

Blogging really has changed my life and given me so many opportunities that we would never of had the chance to do.

The biggest thing it has brought to me though is the chance to leave the 9-5 behind and now go into full time work on the blog. 6 years ago I didn’t even know if I would last a year blogging, let alone take the jump this year to work from home full time.

It has given me the chance for the first time since having Kayleigh and Ethan to be able to be home during the school holidays with them. I am able to do the little things such as the school run and listen to their stories of what they got up to during the day.

Not only have we been very lucky in what we have been able to do and for me to work from home. I have had the chance to meet some inspiring people who are so supportive of you, even though to some you may feel the blogging world is competitive. There are so many people out there that are cheering you on and willing to listen to your rant and give some really helpful advice.

It is the little things that have made such a difference to our lives that I will be forever grateful for.

So to celebrate, how about some competitions?!

If you are a regular reader of the blog, you will know how much we love a good competition and this is no different!

Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks for our competitions that are coming up and make sure you pop back daily to see what the next one is! You will be able to find them all here.

Our first competition will be up later today so don’t miss it!
