How to get over being a blog failure...

Some of you may know that this is not my first blog, or dare I say my second...or third...I am a little bit of a blog w*&%e

Let me explain how, and why I got this far, I first started off wedding blogging, and had two blogs, that were never really read (THANK GOD!), then I found my niche, and off I set with a semi-successful blog for about three years. I loved it, I loved the comments, the details, the late nights and even the admin! I re-designed the blog and had it just where I wanted it, then my Mum found out she had cancer, I found I no longer had the time available to put what I wanted into it, then the scheduling went out the window, then the quality of the posts that I did manage to put together. So I came up with a solution of joining up with someone else, share the load, and I did...it just didn't work well...I wanted a partner, and I found I was still carrying most of the weight. My Mum came through and got better, but by then it just came to a point where I couldn't save the blog...and it ended.

Over the last few years since I have tried to launch something new, but nothing ever really fits. So I took time off, about a year.

Its been a brilliant year, we went to Italy and had the time of our lives, we socialised a LOT with friends, oh, and had a baby!!! Sold and bought a new house, with a stay at the in laws in between, and finally now after the busy Christmas period I decided to try one more time. But do things a wee bit different.

It took me a while to forgive myself for the other blogs, and to be honest, not to be embarrassed by their existence. I chose to make them part of my learning curve, and took them as a lesson to bring me to this point.

Forgiveness is a huge part of life, and I believe you can't move on until you can do this.
