GIVEAWAY: From Day Dot Is One!!

This day last year, I took the plunge and wrote my very first blog post for From Day Dot. I set up my blog amidst the excitement and sheer terror of finding out I was pregnant for the first time. I wanted to hear real experiences and advice, not clinical instructions based on a ‘normal’ pregnancy, but this didn’t seem to exist due to most people wanting to keep their secret for the first 12 weeks and not broadcast it over the Internet. Understandable.

So I set up From Day Dot to give other early preggos exactly what I was looking for, a little insight into a clueless Mum-to-be’s story. I didn’t tell anyone I knew about it, and even now only four friends know my dirty little secret.

I’ve talked about how much has happened over the past year in my personal life, and my blog has been a big part of that. I’ve found an outlet to rant, worry and explore my passions; I have a record of what I did, what I thought and how I felt whilst I was growing and bringing my baby into the world; and I uncovered a whole community of like-minded, supportive people through my blog and social media. I’ve found something for me, something I enjoy and something that has potential to provide opportunities.

My proudest moment was being asked to write my first piece of content for – my DIY tutorial for Max’s nursery blinds – and I’m also a little proud of myself for wading through the databases, coding and FTPs and finally going self-hosted, launching today (it’s taken a while, trust me!)
