As you may already know, Lamb & Bear blog turned 1 in January, how quick has the time gone?! I have been offering lots of giveaways to celebrate (more to come!) The current giveaway is to win a GroCompany Grobag which you can enter here.
My first year of blogging has been a whirlwind. When I started with Vicky, it was just our place to vent and share, never did I think I would work with some amazing brands and turn the blog into a profession!
Ok, so I’m not calling myself a professional blogger, but I’ve had a taste of what it could be like and I’m determined to work hard and develop more relationships with brands and PRs.
I love blogging. I’ve gone from a complete novice to buying a ticket to Britmums Live to meet some of the amazing bloggers I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know through the world of social media!
The blogging world is so supportive. Bloggers look out for each other: there is no competitiveness. I think that’s what’s kept me going. Thank you to all of you who have commented, supported and shared throughout my first year off blogging.
With Britmums Live soon approaching I felt it was time to revamp the blog. The first theme we had was a free wordpress theme, and it did the job while we had it. However after such a successful first year working with brands and PRs, I felt it was time to invest a little into the website sand create a more professional looking space.
I found a beautiful theme that was amazing value and have spent this week giving the blog a make over. This is the first time I have ever installed a theme to wordpress, and I have to admit it’s not easy! But after hours of trial and error with plugins and what not I am finally happy with the look of the blog. Ok, so there are still tweaks to make here and there, and I seemed to have found an addiction for plugins, but it is a huge improvement and I’m so excited for you all to see!
I am developing the ‘Lamb & Bear’ brand a little further with the help go Grandpop Lamb and will soon have a new logo, business card, media pack etc but that is still a working progress.
I hope you like the new Lamb & Bear blog, and would love to know your thoughts! If there’s anything you spot that needs changing or could be improved, please let me know! It’s difficult to spot when you’ve been looking at it for so long!
