I’ve had a blog for around 3 years now. I started it as a way of continuing my desire to write about any and everything, but mostly I wanted to maintain dialogue about the need to keep kids connected to nature and outdoors after my book was published.
Truth be told, I fully expected that it would be read by me, my mama, a few patient friends and every now and then, my children. But by crikey, its readership grew and grew and I now have the loveliest relationship with some loyal subscribers. Thank you!
I’ve come to realise that having a blog is not only a wonderful way of disseminating information but also a unique way of gathering it, and importantly it’s also my way of supporting the ever growing community of Australian bloggers – I am constantly amazed by the skill, passion and talent that is waiting in my in-box each morning.
And now today, the most wonderful thing has happened. Confirmation came through that I have been appointed one of World Vision’s Blogging Ambassadors! You should have seen the happy dances that occurred in my kitchen. I embarrassed even myself. I yelped and whooped and then I got all teary as I thought of the 5 beautiful children my kids and I have sponsored for over 10 years. I now have the opportunity to give back in another different, but to my mind, equally important way. It really makes my heart sing.
Over the coming months and years, I do hope you’ll allow me to showcase the work of World Vision both through my blog and on social media. The other blogging ambassadors are an amazing bunch of people and I’m SO excited and proud to be part of the team.
Until next time….
