Hello and thanks for stopping by. I wanted to share my passions and the things I love with the world so here I am, trying to do so. You can call me a ‘beginner’ as I only really started blogging back in November 2016, so I’m still getting the hang of things. I love to write about my hobbies, interests and I share my opinions on things that are important to me. I hope you enjoy my content and feel free to leave a comment. There’s also an opportunity to subscribe so you never miss out on a new blog post.
Why I Started Blogging
♥ A new hobby
♥ A project to work on
♥ A chance to express myself
♥ The thought came across about earning money in the future
♥ To co-inside with my art business – which I must admit I haven’t out much effort in. I need to work on that
I did a lot of research before I created my blog, just to see if I was really capable of doing it with a full time job. I’ve only been blogging for a couple of months, but I think I’m getting somewhere. I have a few followers on my blog, now 450+ followers on Instagram – I had around 100-200 this time last year. I hit 65 likes on Mother’s day post and I’m absolutely buzzing! I know it’s not much but it’s an achievement for me.
I mainly blog to share my interests with others and to express myself. I love to read people’s thoughts on different things I write about and it just gives me something to do when i get home from work – apart from the housework of course – yes Boggles I am using my washing up gloves. That’s what I named my Grandma as a toddler.
I am going to try and expand my business and continue to paint – more. I have failed at this and I am to pick things up where I left them. Please go and check out my Facebook page. If you just click on the tab above this post ‘Earlybiird Creations’ you will be redirected – or you can just click here – (don’t worry it will open up in a new tab). If you would like to request a painting please leave me a message and I can get back to you as soon as I can. All my work is on my page so you can see the things I paint images of.
I don’t know a lot about the earning money side of things, but i do know it doesn’t come in an instant. Nothing is free in life, so hard work and patience are what it takes – not sure if I have those but we’ll have to wait and see…
Don’t stop when you are TIRED, stop when you are DONE
My Dear Valentine
