A family of bloggers


I just want you to know that I enjoy blogging immensely.

I might not be the most prolific of bloggers, the most read, tweeted or visited blogger in the world, but I am a happy blogger! As someone wise said to me earlier this week, ‘The thing to remember about blogging is that there is no right or wrong way to do it – it’s YOUR part of the Internet and you can do whatever you like with it’. 

I gain satisfaction from seeing my posts pop up, in the WordPress reader, on my Facebook page, on Twitter.  One day I’ll get around to understanding how to ‘do’ Pinterest!

I am grateful to those of you who read my posts, who share my posts and especially those who read AND leave me a comment. My stats aren’t huge but they satisfy me.

I love interacting with those of you who come to visit me on my Deb’s World blog.  I always try to reply to comments and at the very least acknowledge the comment with a ‘like’.

I love the family atmosphere of some of the blogging challenges, the link-ups, the blog hops, twitter hashtags, the special group of Facebook bloggers that Suzie has set up and the caring and sharing attitude of all those I have come across in this blogging journey.

Maybe it’s just that February is the month of love, but I’m feeling very happy and contented with things at the moment.  Which I’m sure you’ll agree, is a good thing 🙂

I’ve also realised that as well as having a feeling of belonging in a blogging family, I also have a real family of bloggers.  I’d like to introduce them to you:

  • My daughter Melanie, has a blog called  The Wandering Darlings, where she talks travel and shows off her photographic skills.  She also blogs sometimes as Debbie’s Daughter.
  • my sister Sharon, has a blog where she plays with images and words and shares her talents as both a writer and a photographer  on Musings from the cold
  • my brother-in-law Tim, has a blog with exceptional words and photos in completely different style to my sister but they also collaborate extremely well together. He blogs at Timothy Moss

So enjoy checking out my blogging family and continue to share the love!  I’m including this post for Ritu’s #Loveuary challenge for this month.

Thanks again for showing me some bogging love 🙂

Can anyone match this claim to being a family of bloggers?  Let me know in the comments.


L-R: Tim, Sharon and Me

    Hi, Debbie – Unfortunately I cannot match your claim of belonging to a biological blogging family (that’s very cool, btw). However, like you, I love having such a strong sense of family and belonging within the blogging community. It’s an incredible feeling…and a great bonus that I never understood could happen when I first pressed publish on my initial blog post!

      I’m with you Donna, I had no idea of this added bonus either. It just gets better and better!! Great to connect with so many likeminded people. I thought it was cool to have my very own blogging family so I’m glad to agree with me 😊

    Not a family of blogger, but in beginning to blog, I created my own Blogily instead!!! Great post!

    That’s so awesome Deb, how fun to be able to blog within your family. My siblings don’t even have FB, let alone a blog! But I have to agree with you let we have an amazing blogging family online and that’s enough for me. 🙂

    You’re doing the right things when it comes to blogging, Deb. You’re enjoying it and having great fun with it. That’s why I came here to the world of blogging. Keep on enjoying it, because that’s exactly what it is all about.

    I have just started to discover how extensive (and supportive) this family of bloggers really is! Your posts are genuine and from the heart. Part of the reason I so enjoy them even though I may not comment on each one. Keep it up!

      Thanks Marian, you made my day with your lovely comment 🙂 It’s a great family to belong to.

    A blogging family is pretty cool! … especially when my family doesn’t even read mine 😉

    It has been wonderful to make friendships far and wide through blogging. I’ve even made friends – face-to-face – with people in my own city area! … how cool is that? 🙂 It’s something that non-bloggers just don’t understand.

    You’re so lucky to have real blogging “family”. I’m afraid I can’t say the same except maybe a second cousin who last posted a year ago (that’s got to count right?). I’m glad you’re enjoying the blogging journey and may you continue for many years to come! 😀

      Thanks for your comment Diya. I think a second cousin counts as part of your blogging family 🙂 I look forward to continuing.

    That’s a lot of related bloggers. Sounds lovely. I love the comment about no right or wrong way to blog. The only wrong thing I’ve ever encountered in the blogosphere are bloggers who disappear. I get worried and makes me sad. Love your blog Debbie x

      Thanks so much Annie, I’m so glad to have you along. I also worry about those who just disappear. Don’t panic I plan to be blogging away for quite some time to come. X

    Nice to meet you all! My husband is just starting up his own blog, but he’s only 1 post in so far.

      That’s great to hear your husband is starting out as a blogger too! I can’t imagine mine ever doing so 😂 Are you going to interview him for starting over?


  11. February 23, 2018 at 2:14 am

    Literally a blogging family! I thought you meant all of us! No one in my family or circle of friends blog. Is it ever competitive?

      Yes you are all my family too 😊 and no it’s never competitive. It’s quite fun seeing how different we all are. Thanks for visiting.

    I’m the only blogger I know in the flesh, so to speak 😳
