The Frenchie Mummy Blog is officially turning 2 months today. Yes, we actually published our first ever post not so long ago. How exciting!
A quick reminder as well, just in case you haven’t seen it before (even though I doubt it very much, as I put it all over my blog ?). Please nominate us for the Best Comic Writer category at the Mumsnet Blogging Awards 2016 if you think our posts are somehow funny or make you chuckle.
So let’s rewind a bit and reflect on what has been going on over the last couple of weeks. This project started because a first-time maman didn’t like the idea that she was not working anymore. Yes, I said it. Even though I was very happy to have brought out little Baba into the world, I still felt like I was missing something in my life. Being a SAHM was not enough.
That’s when the blogging project came along with the doubts and the fears that you (probably?) all felt when you started your own one. Hopefully, I read all the top tips to be a super maman blogeuse.
So I decided to go along with it, despite les obstacles:
- Grumpy Boyfriend worried that I would beg for his support all the time
- A very little knowledge of la blogosphère or technical stuff like a router
- A newborn baby who indeed could turned easily into a diva
- A great passion for shopping that could be a distraction
- A partner working from home. Yeah, it meant that I would have to put up with him and his terrible music preferences all day long!
- A very basic knowledge of social media platforms. Indeed, I used to think that hashtags were only for teens and youngsters.
- A very concerned grandmother who thought her daughter was insane to put her baby’s pictures all over the place ‘Et les pédophiles?!’
- A perplexed family-in-law who thought that I had better things to do, like cleaning more the house, taking care of le bébé more thoroughly instead of putting him in a Jumperoo or outside on the balcony. (He loves observing the nature and some fresh air is always good!)
But Frenchie Mummy knew that she had some good points:
- A witty sense of humour: I hope so. Please if you disagree with this statement, just keep it for yourself, would you?
- A gorgeous Baba that will be featured in her posts and for sure become a star. I mean, seriously, you all read the post about his fabulous sunglasses. So he definitely has something cute about him!
- A good work ethic: Frenchie Mummy was never scared to put the effort into it. Even if it meant taking part in many linkies to promote her posts or just neglecting Grumpy Boyfriend. Deep down, we know that he is quite happy about that …
- Some Frenchie vocabulary, especially some naughty words like ‘merde’ that people would love to hear. That would remind them of their GCSEs and how they were young and powerful. Nostalgia is always a good catch and makes people click on your posts!
Now two months in the blogosphere and Frenchie Mummy is very happy with what she achieved. From very little views the first month – basically my family and friends having a nose at my deepest thoughts ?, we now have a very decent number of people clicking on our pages.
Merci beaucoup dearest readers! It’s all because of you! And the fact that you had no choice but to read my stuff. My linkies’ obsession and my constant messages on twitter reminding you to read our last post for sure helped!
And we must not forget all the fabulous bloggers we met along the way. Merci for making me crying, dreaming, hoping and laughing. I encounter some fabulous people over the last two months. No need to write a list. It would be too long. Basically, if I tweeted or messaged you with kisses and funny gifs, you’re part of it.
Now if you excuse me, Grumpy Boyfriend just reminded that I have a 5 months old who needs some attention and wants to be played with. Priorities first. Blogging is just a hobby…? I have a lot ahead of me today, including the following:
- making up some bubbles solution for Baba to be emerveillé
- practising baby talk
- rolling on the floor. No choice here I have to encourage my son to develop, so I personally join in the fun. Yep, you pictured it right; it involves rolling like a sushi and laughing at it
- dancing to the tune of average music, generally whatever is the on the top chart
- going for a walk so that we both get fresh air
- watching French cartoons for 15 minutes at least
- trying to get some food down my son’s throat, meaning that it won’t end up in his ears or his nose. Wish me luck, today we are trying carrots! It might involve me being kicked and pinched… So looking forward to it!
- cleaning the kitchen – actually, this one is optional, very unlikely to happen, to say the least…
Joyeux Anniversaire Frenchie Mummy Blog! ? To all the fabulous adventures ahead of us in the future.
