On blogging


I was reminded last week about why I started this blog. It was as simple as the trawling through my archives and the kids getting excited about seeing old photo's of themselves. They were excited beyond belief that they were seeing old photo's and hearing stories about what was happening in our lives at that time.

It's the same for me when I stumble across an old craft project and remember the process of making it. For a while I had been questioning whether I should keep Actually Amy up and running. Truthfully, I had lost my passion for this space a long time ago. All my blogging headspace was being taken up by And Sew We Craft and all other headspace was being occupied by my kids. I was simply running out of time and the desire to blog here.

But then that changed this week. Seeing my kids smile whilst reading about themselves was the kick up the bum I needed to keep going so that Darcy can enjoy the same thing that his older siblings do.

Now just to keep the blogging mojo alive.

Wish me luck!

  1. That's what keeps me going now, and why I've shifted the focus back to my life and recording the memories for myself and the girls in years to come. My Mum just started a blog and I can't wait to read some of her tales of life raising us 5 kids. I think blogs will be wonderful memory keepers in time to come, they are most definitely an online scrapbook for so many.

  3. I wish blogging had been a thing when mine were little. It goes so quickly and it's nice to have a running record of the highlights.

  4. I'm only fairly new to blogging, but I was prompted to start when I was watching Channel 7's 'A Place to Call Home'. It captured so well how very different our world was back then. OK, so I'm not old enough to have been alive when that series was set, but being born in the 60s and growing up in the 70s and 80s, I am old enough to have lots of memories of a very different world. And that's what I wanted to record - before I forget everything! Also, I didn't have my kids until my early 40s so there is such a contrast between my childhood and theirs, and that always makes for an interesting twist on a story.

  5. It is hard to keep it up - especially with kids! But it is lovely to see that this is building memories for them and you are once again inspired. Inspiration is really what keeps us going - keep it up!!

  6. I often think why am I bothering because who cares what I have to say but then I'm reminded it's like a diary of my life with kids! Just keeping swimming!
