I know parts of this year have been a little bit patchy - there's two notable periods this year where, for personal reasons, my blog has been a bit lacking and almost nearly stopped but overall I still enjoy blogging (I like it so much, I started an additional one!) and feel I've been offering a lot to my readers - especially competitions! There's been more competitions on my blog lately than ever before because that's what you told me you liked!
I don't have as much time to commit to writing as I'd love to - my children are 1 and 3 so "me time" doesn't really exit! On top of that, we're in the middle of a few major projects - such as selling up our home and buying a new one!
I'm always proud of the readers I have and the positiveness I receive for my blog - and I'm proud to carry the badges on my blog for being nominated for MAD (mum and dad) blogger awards - I have these for 2010, 2011 and 2012 but what happened?
I didn't receive any nominations at all for 2013 which means I can't have a 2013 badge and its a bit upsetting to think that the people who've nominated me in the past no longer enjoyed my blog enough to nominate again, nor any of my new followers.
So I took a long hard look at my posts - and all I can say is that perhaps it's my decrease in personal posts that's caused it! I haven't been sharing as much of my personal life as I have on previous years so, although people have said they enjoy my competitions most, perhaps really it's my personal posts that you want!
I'll stop sulking now for not being MAD nominated... And get writing a few more "me" posts!
