The title kinda sums me up over the last couple of months.
I’m not sure however I class myself as a Blogger, well not solely anyway. I manage social media, I vlog and other bits and pieces too.
DadvWorld.com is though a BLOG! I just get so caught up in the many other things I do and we do as a family that I sometimes forget to do the Blogging part!
I have plenty of ideas, lots of things to say and write about, but what I don’t have is the time to do it all!
It’s really strange because I’ll have an idea and think ‘I’ll put a post together about that later’, then get side tracked, forget and then can’t be bothered later on. Then when I finally sit down to write, I love it and wonder why I don’t do it a lot more often. Anyone else like this?
I’d like to think I have a fair few online mates now in the Blogging scene, all of which know me as a Dad blogger because that’s how we’ve crossed paths and engaged. Although we now all chat so much online, usually Twitter, about general stuff that I get away with not doing the Blogging part so much but still involved whenever there’s a discussion to be had! I’m lucky in his sense definitely.
Maybe Blogging is evolving, or what DadvWorld started off as has evolved. DadvWorld is firstly for my family, to look back at Blogs I’ve written, videos we’ve created and all content we’ve posted across our social accounts in years to come. Thus, it doesn’t really matter if I’m Blogging daily or even weekly does it, as long as I’m actively creating content and sharing it, people will continue to engage via whichever platform is currently active and it’ll all be there for us to look back on anyway.
We’ve had a go at smashing vlogs, posting as many videos as we can on YouTube as often as possible. We have a new found love for Instagram and have been growing our community on there through Instagram Stories a lot recently. The Facebook page is much more active than before and Snapchat is our next quest.
Basically as a family we enjoy creating, sharing and engaging on all platforms of social media. We’re lucky that we can turn this hobby into receiving a few quid and couple of cool products from time to time and why not aye!
Whether it’s that my mindset has changed slightly or the enjoyment we get from certain things has altered, we just love recording memories and sharing them with others. Website hits, Blogging stats are no longer a driving factor for me, just creating and having loads of fun is!
This has turned into a little update/ramble hasn’t it. I guess I just wanted to keep you up to date. I may not be as active in terms as blog posts but for anyone that likes to keep up with our ongoings we’re certainly active across everywhere else!
We love engagement so keep the messages coming, comments and questions too… see you online @dadvworld
