Mama OWL Blog: #R2BC - Reasons to be Cheerful... 1, 2, 3

#R2BC - Reasons to be Cheerful... 1, 2, 3

Thursday, 10 January 2013

Another week has passed and here we are for #R2BC once again, I hope you have all had a good week!

1. I've made a good start to my #50Books2013 challenge and have just finished my fourth book. I need to get back into the habit of picking up a book instead of fiddling around on my phone or going on the computer and really rediscover my love of reading. I'd forgotten just how much I enjoy it and I am determined to put more effort in to it this year. I'm so pleased that so many people are joining in with me too!

2. My blog whizzed past the 100,000 views mark on new year's day (as of today I am closing in on 104,600!) and my average monthly readership has increased massively since the beginning of December. I love blogging and do it for the pleasure I get out of it, but I am delighted that people come here to read what I have to say and enjoy my posts, it makes me happy. I'm looking forward to going to the BritMums Live conference this year & meeting up with everyone and really getting involved.

3. I've won two prizes since Christmas through Tots100 & BritMums. One was a £25 Lakeland voucher from Tots100 that I won during the #StorkBaking twitter party in December, and the other is a prize of two Skylanders Giants figures during the BritMums #skylanderspics new year giveaway. I also won £10 on the lottery which is not to be sniffed at!

What are your reasons to be cheerful this week? Hop over to Michelle's blog and join in.
