Grateful for this blog!

blog, blogging, Blogger

On this Monday I am grateful for this blog.

I have been contemplating what to do about this specific blog and if I should continue blogging here. I was thinking that I reach another horrifying milestone in age (guess what?) this year, and that the blog title would not fit anymore. Little Miss is also older, and would not appreciate me sharing about her life so much!

At this stage I still love blogging, and I still love this little space on the Inter-webs.

I am grateful about the MomAgain@40 blog:

- I have a journal of our life with our family and the new addition who added so much more colour to our lives! I would have forgotten so many good times, experiences and anecdotes of Little Miss growing up if it were not for this space.

- I have met many great fellow bloggers and parenting bloggers who taught me so much on my own parenting journey. If I needed advice, it always came through on this blog.

- Little Miss had a few challenges at her first week at a new school. I got a call from a fellow Mom blogger who arranged a play date on Friday afternoon. Not only did Little Miss met a fellow school pupil at her new school whom she could play with at school, but I also have a fellow Mom to help me navigate the new school! Thank you, Louisa, it means so much to us!

- I get to attend some great events, such as Hoener met die Rooi Skoene Premiere, through this little blog.

- I get to test new apps and sometimes gadgets which I would not have known were it not for this blog.

- I still use Blogger, and it has been a most stable platform for years! I have not had any issues. It's also free! (FREE!)

- This blog has taught me so much (social media, technical), and has broaden my horizons and my connections!

For now I am thankful for this Blog! The title will still cover me for a few years to come. I am a mother who had her second child over the age of forty! I am an older mother! That won't change!
This year I will look at how I share about Little Miss, but this blog is still intrinsically about how she came to change our lives. And how parenting has changed globally, and has changed us!

Why are you still blogging?


  1. Love your blog Karen! And so glad for your little one

  2. Not only is it great to read your blog, I appreciate your support as a fellow blogger. I agree about as they get older, you have to be more sensitive as to what you share. Keep on writing.

  3. Keep me up to date too! Keep on Blogging ;-)
    You got me to blog too and I am often wondering too if I should carry on.

  4. Blogging is magical, I really miss being able to write what I want to.
    It was an absolute pleasure (the play date). It's really hard for anyone to find their feet in a new place and hopefully knowing one more friendly face will help. :-)

  5. Thanks again! It really helps to know an extra friendly face at a new place!


I love to hear your comments :D
