Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I’ve been going back and forth for a while now about making some changes to my blog and have finally decided to take the plunge and jump in the deep end so to speak. It was around this time I came across this fabulous Tell Me More Tag at Wishes Hopes Dreams and thought it would be a fantastic way to re-introduce myself and my revamped blog to you all.
If you’ve stumbled across me before then you may notice that things have changed. I have had a completely new rebrand and have pretty much started again with a slightly different niche. There will still be lifestyle/family related posts but there are also going to be regular posts relating to dyspraxia in both adults and children.
I hope you’ll stick around to see what I have to share and maybe even pop back every now and again.
Tell Me More…
What’s the story behind your blog name?
My blog name (My Chaotically Eclectic Life) is pretty much how I would describe my life. As a family of four (plus one that has flown the nest and two fur babies) we spend a lot of our time in chaos. Mix into this everyone’s different interests and we have an eclectic mix and so the name was born.
What’s your real reason for blogging?
Simply, I love writing and felt that it would be a way to embrace my creativity. I started out a few years ago with free WordPress site that covered everything from reading to recording memories to my love of stationery. Before long I realised that this wasn’t going to work and split my blogs. I still have my book blog, My Eclectic Reads, although it has been a little neglected of late.
The best thing about blogging?
I love the community. Everyone I’ve come across is supportive and helpful. I also like that it’s a way to explore and share my creativity.
The worst thing about blogging?
The technical side and analytics. I’m still learning about all of these things, which for a non-techie person is harder than I expected. Fortunately I have found some fantastic people within the blogging community that have been helping me learn as I go.
Proudest moment so far?
Having the courage to completely start over and head in the direction I really want to go. It wasn’t easy to remove a lot of my earlier posts but now it’s done I know it was the right decision.
What are your ultimate blogging goals? Don’t be shy!
I’m treating this as a new blog so it feels like I’m only just starting out so at the minute. Because of this my goals are pretty small. I’d like to get 100 active subscribers by the end of the year and hopefully forge some new friendships along the way. Also if I could earn a few pennies while doing this I wouldn’t be complaining.
If you released a book what genre would it be?
I would love to release a personal development or self help book, something that helps people in some way.
If you released products what would they be? Homeware, beauty, or something unexpected?
This is quite a hard question, however I would love to produce something that would help raise the awareness of dyspraxia as too many people still don’t completely understand the condition.
What would you name your products and why?
I am rubbish at coming up with names for things so if I’m honest I would be asking for help on this aspect, should I ever get to this stage.
What has blogging taught you?
There is a lot more to running a successful blog than I initially thought and it can be hard work to maintain.
However the blogging community is full of fantastic people who are willing to help and support you achieve your goals.
Sum up your blog in three words.
Dyspraxia awareness; family
I really enjoyed doing Tell Me More blog tag and I hope you enjoyed reading it.
