New Year New Ideas

This year is a going to be a big year for us in my house as we will be welcoming our first baby in just a few short weeks (or whenever she decides to grace us with her presence which could be tomorrow for all I know!)
This has given me some time to start putting alot more effort into my blog before baby girl arrives. So I dug out my blog planning notebook that I got when I first starting blogging last year, but failed to start using it. Now I have been jotting down some notes on what I plan to write about in it. There is something so great about using a pencil and paper to jot and brainstorm ideas. I could never get used to using note apps on my phone or even writing ideas down on a spreadsheet.

             
             

While I was catching up with some reading on one of my favourite blogs thereadingresidence I found out that they are doing a #BringBackPaper pledge. Which I think is a fantastic idea as these days everything is very much electronic. With Ipads, smart phones, ereading devices and even smart watches!  Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with electrical devices I have a few of them myself, but I love going back to just a paper and pencil, or holding a paperback in my hand.


So my #BringBackPaper pledge is to carry on using my paper blog planner for the rest of the year and recording my blog development progress and ideas as she hopefully grows throughout the year. Oh and to keep up with my reading of course!
