Do you love blogging?

I do! In fact today I thought, how long have I been doing this?

It appears I have missed a couple of anniversarys, oh I'm terrible at remembering such things. I started my blog in 2009 but didn't really start blogging in earnest til Jan last year, so I've missed my 1 year of blogging anniversary, next up I've missed my 100 posts celebration, DOH!

Anyway when I first started blogging I thought who on earth will be interested in what the heck I do,  but then thought, mmmm well I'm interested in what others do so maybe. Then I thought what on earth will I blog about, I know we all go through this unless we have a definate theme to our blog.

This was my first post back in Sept 2009, you can find it here

And the first picture I posted!!

Nothing changes ;o)

On my blogging journey I've met some fabulous people in real life, fabulous people online and really enjoyed the whole journey so far. I'm so glad I started blogging, it's an important part of my life now!

And now to something entirely different....

Ever had those times in your life when everything is changing and you think things look bleak but then there's a faint light in the distance and you think, mmmmm maybe not! I can't go into much detail at all right now, don't want to jinx anything if you believe in such stuff, I'm afraid I do!!

Hence the rather choppy blog post today, I'm kinda elsewhere so to speak, wish I was here I write much better when I am! This probably is how confused I am at the moment, but I am NOT scrubbing floors ;o)

The confusion won't subside until at least next week, but I'll try and post before then!!
oh and just a quick question is anyone in the US a regular at Sephora, I'm nearly out of something & I won't be visiting the US anytime soon or France, so if someone could pick something up for me & ship it to the UK, will pay via paypal in advance of course I would appreciate it more than I can say!  Email me at if you can! Thanks!!

I love it too! I have also been on since 2009, but started blogging "properly" about a year ago. Its so interesting and I look forward to reading my blogroll every day :)
Glad to hear there is some light at the end of the tunnel too!

I love blogging too! But sometimes I go through a dry period were I can think of nothing interesting to say or if I feel a bit shitty it is hard to blog!

I still love reading all the wonderful blogs I follow, I always find something to make me smile!

Vintage Vixen said...

I love blogging, too! There's so many wonderful people out there ready to share their lives and ideas and I'd don't know why I didn't embrace it sooner.
I'm very excited for you, Fiona. There's something good about those gut feelings. xxx

I'm shocked so many people give a damn about what I post, but I love LOVE reading your blog and so many others that I keep posting so I can keep reading all of yours! =D

Oh I hope it's good news for you! I really do!

Sorry, no Sephora or I'd do it in a heartbeat!

Missy Vintage said...

I just adore it. I also thought no-one would be interested in anything I had to show or say. I thought about blogging for a year before I finally did it.My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner x

Natasha de Vil said...

I do love blogging to but have been finding it quite hard recently as my blog doesn't seem to be to well so am going to rebrand and relaunch and refocus on what i'm doing and try and remember what I love about blogging the most.

I love reading all the wonderful interesting blogs and made great amigas too.

Lady Cherry said...

I love blogging, and I love to read other people's blogs too. It's so lovely to be able to meet some new people with common interest too, it's not easy meeting new people full stop these days with our closed society. x

I have been blogging for nearly 6 mths and I am shocked at how I feel it has majorly enhanced my life. I have gained knowledge, laughter and friendship. 3 things that make this dull little sphere all the more bright!

Ooooooooooh! Intrigue and mystery! Spill! Spill!

Leprechauna said...

Hi Fiona! Just started reading your blog....So fascinated by your story. I'm a crafter, Vintage luving Nurse. I have spent several years working Trauma, Neuro ICU and the like. I just want to say that just want to hug you and kiss your face off.....all the struggles for you and your man! Amazing!

I almost fell off my chair when I saw your man's Dia De Los Muerto art!
I am a freak for this. Consider coming to LA next year for the celebration at the Forever Cemetery!

Straight Talking Mama! said...

Thank you Leprechauna! Ah well you of all people know what we've been through as you've seen the journey before in your job!

I will tell him you like his art. Oh we would love to but we're too broke to travel to the US at the moment, one day!!

Vintage Christine said...

Yup, I love blogging, too, although I spend way too much time on the computer because of it! This is my third blog--my first wasn't much about vintage, and I also had a blog "written by" my elderly and very mean cat, Poonie. He didn't talk in that silly dog/cat talk that is on most animal blogs--no, Poonie was quite literate with a very ascerbic wit. He died last year, unfortunately. No Sephora round here--I live in the country in southern Mississippi so we're lucky to get Maybelline at the local Walmart. However, we're only an hour away from New Orleans, thank gawd, although not sure if there's a Sephora.

Elisa said...

Though I have yet to start a blog of my own, I have really enjoyed reading yours since I recently started following! Thanks so much for sharing :)

Living Vintage said...

I am pretty new to blogging and if you asked me a year ago if I thought I would be blogging I probably would have laughed at you. I don't think of myself as much of a writer but my love of vintage brought me here and I really have enjoyed both sharing and seeing what others have to share.
