Blogging Inspiration


It's 5:30am and I can't remember why I started blogging. I can remember dates and such but I can't remember where I heard about blogging, whose blog inspired me first to begin. I didn't include any of that information in my introduction post on my last blog. Why didn't I include it?

I'd blogged before on msn spaces then on MySpace but never a real blog, just one attached to a profile or social media setting. I wish I could read what dribble I posted about back then but I can't access either due to my old email account being hacked and lost.

I think the main reason I began blogging was to record lufflump's first years. I wish I knew what or who inspired me. I know I started reading Melissa's and Holly's blogs early on so maybe they were the inspiration, I know they still inspire me now. Actually I've written about part of my blogging journey already. In there I did include the bloggers who inspired me to start blogging again.

I remember reading A-M's blog daily and wanting to be a part of her community, loving her photos and stories, everything about her blog was interesting to me even the so-called mundane posts (oh god I sound like a stalker, promise I'm not!). She was probably the biggest inspiration for me to get back on board blogging. She's still incredibly inspiring, after a very rough year she's come out on top with her boys and she's still got the same light if only a bit more enlightened.
Apart from A-M there's been bloggers who've helped through dark and light times. Those who've made me laugh and cry. It's funny how someone can evoke such emotions without realising it. I'll try and keep the list down;
Melissa; she's such an amazing lady. You know that light some lucky people have around them, a glow? Well she has it. She's not only supportive and lovely through her blog but also in person. She's also got a pretty amazing laugh and makes blogs look really pretty in her spare time.
Holly; my pregnancy sister. This lady is hilarious and truthful. No spinning shit from her mouth or blog. She unashamedly swears which could be one of the main reasons we clicked so well ;) She writes from the heart, loves her kids more than anything and I'm so glad she's home again, happy.
Amy; another pregnancy sister. Amy has been through so much lately, all good things too; marriage, new business and now she's growing a sibling for Flynn. We share so much in common even our first names. In fact I know if we lived closer we'd often catch up for lunch, you know in all her spare time.
Edenland - you can't outrun your shadow.
Eden; who hasn't this lady touched in some way?! Her writing, humour, caring nature, craziness - fuck it, everything about this woman is amazing. I think I've convinced myself her shit smells like roses, she's that awesome. She has this vibe that makes you me want to be a better person. She's herself in a way I wish I was.

I promised myself I would leave it at five but I can't so here's a few more;
Veronica at Mixed Gems
Naomi at Seven Cherubs
Nat, you need a button!
It's now 8:00am and I still have no idea what inspired me to start blogging. I'm glad I did though.

I'm linking up with Edenland's Fresh Horses Brigade. It's pretty damn awesome.

  1. Awww, thanks for including me, Ames, I really am touched, especially when I currently feel I'm in such a blogging rut. You're an awesome lady, and I am encouraged by your take on life, love and the mundane (all those organising tips you shared whilst nesting!). I'll have to check out some of the others you've listed whom I've not heard of yet. Thanks again!

  6. We would totally do lunch if we lived closer together - probably in a park somewhere so Flynn and Lufflump could tear around together. Hmm - BrisVegas to Dubvegas = a 10 hr drive. I could make it in time for breakfast?
