Who I am and why I’m here?

download (1)Hello there, I realised I never really ever introduced myself publically, so here goes.  I will try not to go on and bore you too much, as a lot of my posts are pretty personal, so if you do read them, you will likely know way more about me, then my best friend does.  I’m a bit of a sharer.  I used to think that that was a downfall, and I know when I first meet someone, I tend to over talk.  In person, that can be a negative I guess, but online you have the option of clicking on another link and moving on.  Please don’t do that! Not just yet.

So, me in a nutshell. I’m Emma. 30-something mum of 3.  Married to Mr P and until recently, I was a mature student.  I graduated last year with a degree in Photography and am in the process of building a photography business.  This has slightly fallen by the wayside since having miss Penny 11 months ago.  I guess my October bucket list should include working on that… (see my september list here).  Right, enough shameless plugging of my posts.

So why am I writing online publically instead of a journal?  Like I said. I’m an over sharer, and I also hope that someone somewhere likes what they are reading.  The aim of my blog is to voice the daily/weekly journey of a mum balancing motherhood and business building.  This will include pretty much everything that goes on in our household and with children ranging from 14 to 11 months, there will be quite a bit.  I write reviews of days out and products we’ve been using.  I will also be showcasing my photography and with permission from my clients, some of my shoots. Although I say that I write for myself, I do secretly deep down hope that someone somewhere reads it and gets something from it.  I would hazard a guess that my target audience would be other parents, but I also hope that others also get something from my posts.

Since I started writing more posts, I have definitely noticed an increase in my readership, and I hope to continue this throughout the next 6 months to a year.  I am yet to decide if I will attempt to promote myself as a blogging business, as I do want to focus on my photography, but I will be trying to blog professionally and see where it takes me.  I’m open to anything which fits in with my niche at least.

Thank you for reading…

    Lovely introduction!
    I really struggle sometimes in social situations but I have become much better since having my daughter and I think blogging has helped too. I think I am a bit of an oversharer now as well, I don’t think people mind too much though 😉
    Wishing you the best of luck – both with blogging and your photography ventures 🙂
