So a while back I posted my ‘Blog Goals 2017‘ – and I stated that I’d upload a new post twice a week (so far I’ve failed miserably!) It turns out that keeping up with a blog is HARD WORK and takes both commitment and organisation. Inspired by Mrs Mummy Harris post about ‘How to beat the Blogging Blues’ and knowing that if I’m ever going to start achieving my 2017 goal for the rest of the year (seem as it’s already March!) I need to get bloggin’ organised! Here’s the plan…
