Today’s prompt for the Ultimate Blog Challenge is all about telling you readers how our blogs got their beginnings. So, where did the AMummysLifeNZ blog begin? This is your chance to find out.
In The Beginning
Where to start? I began blogging in January 2011 under the misnomer History’s Missing Lady (lame I know). My blog was called Lemonade Or Tequila back then (equally lame). Initially, I was only using the blog as a place to write my thoughts while I was trying to lose weight in order to conceive Blake. It was an outlet for my thoughts and frustrations in my struggles.
When I finally got pregnant with Blake, my blog became a pregnancy blog. Then when he was born, it merged back into a weight loss blog. I also started talking about events in my life such as Celine and Blake’s milestones & our search and purchase of our house. Eventually the weight loss posts turned back to pregnancy as I fell pregnant with Danielle. By the time Danielle was born I had started writing reviews and other types of posts more in line with Mum life and parenting. It was time to rebrand.
Rebranding The AMummysLifeNZ Blog
By this time I had already switched my blog from Lemonade Or Tequila to AMummysLife. I’d also switched my misnomer from Histories Missing Lady also to AMummysLife. It wasn’t long before I realised that my blog was getting confused with a popular American AMommiesLife blog. I wanted to keep a distinctive New Zealand tone to my blog so as not to get it mixed up so I did a complete rebrand and added NZ to my blog name. And that’s how the AMummysLifeNZ blog came about.
