I decided to do the 30 day challenge to get back into blogging regularly, as most days I am soooo tired by the end of the day that I had stopped finding the time to do it, preferring instead to go straight to bed after putting Eric in bed and having dinner! But I really enjoy writing and it used to be a part of my identity. I was always good at English at school and loved doing creative writing, I studied English Literature at uni, and I did some writing for the magazine where I worked after uni. Becoming a mummy was a shock to the system, and it felt sometimes like I didn't know who I was anymore. I felt like I was floundering a bit and I was just so tired that I did nothing other than care for Eric. I thought the 30 day challenge would 'force' me to write as I'd have to do it every day, so it is forced 'me time'! I have also been recently diagnosed with postnatal depression so it is also a good way to express my feelings. I've really enjoyed it and I'm going to keep up blogging every day, or at least most days!
