A while back I started the A-Z of me… I started with A is for Additional Needs. Today, it’s time for B is for Blog.
So, what can I say about my blog?
To start, I haven’t always been Beth in a Box. I’ve had a number of different blogs over the last 8.5 years of blogging.
Diary of a Scatty Mammy
My first ever blog was started in August 2009. It was on Blogger. I called it ‘Diary of a Scatty Mammy’. Then I read the definition of Scatty on the Urban Dictionary. I didn’t like it.
My Good Life
My second blog of note was My Good Life. It was around April 2010 and I ventured into the world of self-hosting. I wanted the ability to do more with my blog. But I still really didn’t understand it. In June of the same year I met my bestie, Sim of Sim’s Life. She was still SFR at the time. We became good friends and shared many opportunities. We actually met for the first time at CyberMummy in June 2011. We’ve met each other several times since then and speak on the phone almost every day.
In late 2011, I took a break from blogging, only to start back up in November 2012.
The Musing Housewife
November 2012 and I started The Musing Housewife. I was Mum of 2, a part time student, and planning my wedding.
The Musing Housewife gave me so many great experiences. We worked with the National Trust on their 50 things campaign between April 2013 and June 2013. It was an incredible experience.
The Musing Housewife saw the huge Wedding Weight Loss Challenge… and the start of my pregnancy with Macsen and the start of my pregnancy with Enfys.
I’ve taken many breaks… but in April 2015, my heart and soul needed a reboot. I felt uninspired by The Musing Housewife. I was fed up of being in such a limited niche. I wanted the scope to expand my topics.
Beth in a Box
I spent weeks planning my move to Beth in a Box. I secured all the accounts and the domain. I transferred everything over. It went well.
And that brings me to the here and now.
Beth in a Box is an evolving work of art. Things aren’t perfect with it right now and things do change regularly. However, it gives me the scope to talk about anything and everything I want to talk about. 🙂
I can’t tell you where Beth in a Box will be in 5 years time, I can’t even tell you where it will be next month… but as time progresses, so will I!
