2017 blogging goals

My 2017 Blogging Goals

Last year I made the decision to make more of my blog. The blog started as a hobby, and still remains a hobby, but it’s so much more than that now. I decided 2017 would be the year I start to take things seriously here at BloggerMummyLauren. I’ve seen many people posting their blogging goals for the year, and thought it would be a good idea.

I say this every birthday, but how can it be that seven years have passed since I first laid my eyes on you? Today for you’r birthday we kept things low key. I’m too anxious to be holding big parties at the moment, although you don’t quite understand that yet. Just because we kept things low key, it doesn’t mean we haven’t had fun. You took a cake in to […]
