So britmums this week asked “If I could start my blog over, I would….”
Well when I first started out I was on blogger and as singlemotherhoodchallenges. Mouthful huh? I changed that to singlemummy.net and kept that for a while. Then when I was no longer a single mum I went to simplyhayley.co.uk and then just this weekend I’m moving simplyhayley from .co.uk to .com. Lesson from that? Choose a name that fits you not your circumstances because circumstances change, you don’t!
I’m glad I made the move to wordpress. There is more freedom in it and although I found it challenging at first and am still learning it has so many possibilities.
The biggest thing I would have done differently would be to have blogged anonymously. It wasnt something I had even considered when I started but now I wish I had. It’s great that my friends and family read what’s going on but that does mean limitations for me! Especially as I know my parents read it religiously, so no ranting about them ;-), and my grandparents read it occasionally. I wouldn’t want them to read things that would make them uncomfortable.
But other than that *looks at long list* I wouldn’t change anything! 😉
