Sunday’s are a great day for truly enjoying slow living. Especially when there are no football matches or parties to attend.
Last Sunday we took a trip to a park not far from us, the kids on their wheels and me trying to keep up as usual. As we crossed a bridge over a little stream we spotted some very talented artists decorating the walls along the stream. The picture above is just one of many along these walls.
Blogging is a tricky area, many of us do it as a business, trying to earn a steady income from an area we love.
Some of us blog because we love writing, wanting to grow a following of like-minded readers.
Some of us blog because we want to share our stories to help others.
I blog because I love to write, love to share stories from our tiny place in the world and with this blog in particular, I want to remind myself to take time to stop and enjoy what we have.
Blogging can throw up some interesting issues, Sara over at Me and Orla shared one I’ve had problems with over the years, drawing the line with what to share online. This of course isn’t limited to blogging the whole social media sharing is another place this applies to as well. I have to agree that I can tell my own stories but those that aren’t mine shouldn’t be shared.
I am trying to be more intentional with some of my images, both on here and on Instagram. The feeds and blogs I love have great images, I am a visual person. Julia at Humphrey & Grace has shared her tips on how to create flat lay images, these are the ones that always seem to get such great traction, especially on Instagram.
Foraging is something I am very interested in. I love the idea of being able to walk out of our front door and down the lane and find ingredients we can eat. I have a couple of books but I still don’t feel confident enough to do this but if I could find a Rachael did from The Foraged Life, I would definitely give it a go.
