Two Years.

Yesterday my little blog turned two years old. For a while now I've been trying to decide where I fit in this world of blogging and where I want to go with my space here. I was over at Live Journal for eight years before I felt that I had outgrown it. For months I went back and forth on whether to stay there, where I liked the privacy that came with it. I felt free to write about whatever I wanted because only people that I chose could read it. Finally though in February 2012 I took the plunge and started For Those Little Moments, which last month became Rosy Cheeks & Muddy Feet. 

I feel like I'm still trying to find my feet. What I want to write about. How I want to write. You might have already noticed that I don't really have a niche. One day I'll post a recipe, the next I write about my kids, then there will be a knitting pattern thrown in, (I think the last knitting pattern was well over a year ago but it's there somewhere, I promise!) Then there is the random, "I've just joined the gym" or "I fell down the stairs twice in two weeks" posts.

Am I a "Mummy Blogger?" "Am I a Lifestyle Blogger?" If someone asked me right at this moment what kind of blog I write, I would have absolutely no idea how to answer.

Earlier today I went to trusty Google to find the definition of a lifestyle blog. I came across this post by Helene. Basically a friend had asked her what she writes about in her lifestyle blog and she couldn't come up with an answer, so she replied with, "A Lifestyle blog is where I write whatever I damn well please" I loved that answer. Why do I have to force myself into a category? Why am I so worried about putting a label on it? I write about whatever is on my mind that day. I write about my life as a Mum but I also write about myself, my struggles, my hopes and my failures. I write about our life together as a family.

So I'm going to stop over thinking it. I am going to write like I always have. For me and because I enjoy it. Some days I will fit into the Mummy Blogger category then some days I'll fit into the Lifestyle Blogger category. I get the best of both worlds right? I get to write about my gorgeous kiddos but also about navigating this crazy world and everything in between. Can't be bad :)
