How blogging has helped me grow.....

I am so excited to be guest posting today for lovely Melanie


When i started my blog “Polkadot~Pretties” back in May 2011

i had no idea what to expect or if anyone would even read what i posted about.

I also didn’t realise how blogging would help me grow into the person that i have always longed to be.

Two things you should know about me, one i have always been ambitious

and two i love to Create. When i left school at 16, i had BIG plans, i had everything

in place for the future and the career i wanted {at the time i wanted to be a graphic

designer} . My plans didn’t go as i expected {at all} i became a mommy at 19

and since then my girls have been my main focus, i love being a mommy and wouldn’t

change it for the world, but a part of me longed to be fulfilled outside of motherhood.

Blogging has been my way of achieving the fulfilment i

needed, it has provided me with great opportunities, solid friendships and more

creative ideas than i could dream of.

Comments of encouragement left on my blog by other bloggers

have been my main source of inspiration to open my own online store, selling my

sewn products.

Blogging, in a way is me going back to my roots and being

the creative person i wanted to be, with the benefit that i can juggle posting writing

and working on my products around the kiddos It has helped me to develop my sense

of style and allowed me to be my own boss.

I love that blogging, makes me challenge myself to learn new

things and follow my dreams, i continued to be inspired daily.

Has Blogging Helped you to follow any of your dreams?

P.S. I do an inspirational Saturday Sayings every weekend on my blog and when she was talking about going back to her roots in the creative world ( reminded me of the video I posted this past Saturday titled "Return to the Root" all about exactly that! :)
