Mother's Journal


Since I have no contact with my own Mother and she was only ever in my life properly for the first 4 or so years of my life I thought it would be a lovely idea to write an online journal for my girls to read when they are older. Even though my blog is my real online journal and I hope they will read back on it when they are older I thought I would do something a bit more personal and write things about mine and my partners families, our childhood, how we met and much more. Then I thought It would be a great idea to let other mums join in too. So if you are interested to join in then read a bit more on how to link up and to know a little bit more about 'A Mother's Journal To Her Child'

What is 'A Mother's Journal To Her Child' about? It's pretty simple really. A blog post is written every fortnight about different topics of your life so your child can get to read about you and your family at this time. There will be different topics and questions every fortnight. There will be questions such as your time in Primary/Secondary school, your childhood best friends, how you felt at birth etc. It will last a few weeks so eventually the linky will end but I will try and last it until the end of the year.

How do I join in? If you'd like to join in, then great! All I ask you to do is add the badge at the bottom of your blog post so others know where to join if they would like too. The linky will be every fortnight (every 2 weeks) and open for 10 days so there is enough time for everyone to join in. The topics will be listed on the 'Mother's Journal' tab on my blog. The questions will be up on the first day of the linky, however if you would like them sooner so you can schedule the post then feel free to ask me via email bethmiaelliw@outlook.com Otherwise all you have to do is wait for the first day of the linky and copy and paste the questions on the post.

BASIC RULES
# Please add the badge at the end of your blog post.
# Comment on at least 1 or more posts to be fair.
