Celebrating Two Years of Blogging with a Little Help from Bakerdays!

Well who’d have thought it? The New Year is soon to be upon up and with it comes my second blogging birthday! The last two years have been a complete roller coaster, I’ve achieved things that I never thought possible and I’ve loved (almost) every second!

As well as starting my blog, the last two years have seen Hubs and I welcome our two girls into our team. So with the inevitable sleepless nights and long days, I feel even more ecstatic that The Tale of Mummyhood has managed to reach the two-year mark. There have been a few times when I’ve considered closing down my blog altogether. Those days that simply don’t seem to have enough hours, those where the kids leave you absolutely cream crackered and those when social media just becomes exhausting.

Despite there being the odd rough patches along the way, the last couple of years have taught me so much about myself and the blogging world. As well as the technical side of running a blog which I had to learn from scratch, I also had to learn how to run a business alongside bringing up two littles – which in itself is a mammoth task.


What I’ve learned from two years of blogging –

  • Blogging could be a twenty-four hour a day job if you let it, remembering to take regular breaks is essential to succeed and to stay sane.
  • It’s not always easy, but it’s vital to stop yourself getting sucked in to the ‘perfection’ that is social media. Remember that everyone is human and things aren’t always what they seem.
  • Know your worth and never sell yourself short.
  • Use the success of others as inspiration, don’t it make you feel inferior.
  • Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day.


Celebrating with Bakerdays!

To help me celebrate reaching this fabulous milestone, Bakerdays got in touch and offered to design a personalised cake for The Tale of Mummyhood. These amazing cakes can be designed by yourself, for any occasion. They’re also the ideal size to fit through your letterbox!



When my letterbox cake arrived, it absolutely made my day! Bakerdays had taken the time to design something that would fit well with my blog and they absolutely nailed it. It looked amazing! As with any cake though, the proof is in the pudding – pun intended! We had chosen vanilla flavour and it was so yummy, the sponge was moist and the taste was to die for. It arrived in double quick time too, which is handy for those last minute gifts.



So, thankyou Bakerdays for making my blogging birthday so special. Here’s to many more blogging years and much more cake along the way!
