Today, via my lovely sister in law, Amanda, I came across the BEDM hashtag. Being a nosy so-and-so, I wanted to know what it meant, and how I could join in (no-one likes being left out, right?). It turns out BEDM stands for Blog Every Day in May and is hosted by Elizabeth at Rosalilium. As much as I dislike tardiness, being a day late for the party is better than not turning up at all, and I promise to bring cake to make up for it, so I am going to do my best to join in with this.
Each day Elizabeth is suggesting a topic, and this should help to give me some inspiration – one of the hardest things I find about blogging is knowing what to say, so for this I am very grateful.
BEDM Day 1 – What’s Your Blog About?
Yesterday’s topic was “What’s Your Blog About?“… phewy, that’s a tough one. My blog is a little corner for my outpourings – about life, family, cooking and, well, me, I guess. I don’t expect anyone to read it, but if anyone does, and finds what I say useful, interesting, informative or just gives them a smile, then that makes me happy.
BEDM Day 2 – Five Favourite Posts
Today for #BEDM we are talking past posts. Specifically my favourite five posts since I started blogging. Well, although this blog is a few years old, I was blogging on another of my sites before that, and have a mixed bag for my favourites:
1. Becoming Awesome – A plan for 2014 I like this, and enjoy rereading it to see which I have done so far. I must tick off the ones I have completed.
2. Blog of the Decade – 10 years of my life, in a nutshell.
3. Walt Disney World, Orlando – A fabulous day of our holidays last year. I love how happy the children look in the photos.
4. What is Happiness? – I am really focussing on the little things. My chalkboard in the kitchen currently says, “It’s the little things that make life wonderful”. So true.
5. Lemon and Raspberry Shortbread Slices – I like this blog, in part because my mum declared the shortbread to be the best she’d ever tasted… I couldn’t ask for a bigger compliment.
If you are new to my blog, please don’t be shy. I love it when people say hello, and it’s a great way to uncover bloggers I don’t already know.
