The Autumn Tag

The Autumn Tag

So recently I was tagged for the Autumn tag by Carla, so thanks so much to her! Here are my answers: 1.

What I’ve Learnt In Two Months of Blogging

The other day I realised that I have been blogging for two months! Whilst this is hardly a long time, it’s already starting to feel like I have always been dreaming up fresh blog posts and obsessively checking my blog comments and Twitter feed in my lunch break. It’s certainly been a learning curve, going from a person who is generally fairly inept with computers (I usually just shout my tech-savvy sister to help!) to someone who has successfully set up a blog, and whilst my design is pretty minimalist, it still seems like an achievement!
