Happy Blogiversary!

Today marks exactly a year since I started my blog (Big News) and I’ve been reminiscing so I thought it would be a nice opportunity to look back at some of my favourite posts (or the ones I am most proud of) from the last year (particularly some of the old ones!)

The Big Op!

Initially my blog was mostly focused on the lead up to and consequent recovery from my hip replacement last June. Although it is a pretty bizarre read for me, looking back at The Big DayAn Even Bigger Day and Home Sweet Home reminds me of how far I’ve come. Each time I get a view on one of these posts I feel like I’m helping someone, somewhere have a greater understanding of what a hip replacement is like and that has got to be a good thing!

My Special Pony

One of my favourite posts (which was always destined to be a favourite, just look at the title) was one of the first ones I wrote – Pea’s Journey – My Favourite Story To Tell.  I hope to be able to write a sequel to this in years to come when she has been on even more adventures – how soon is too soon?

Advice I Stand By

I never want to give advice beyond my capabilities – I don’t pretend to be a medical professional, a therapist or an equine expert but I do enjoy sharing my own thoughts relating to my life experiences on the off chance they might help someone else. That school of thought is where How To Stay Positive and Can’t Ride, Can Horse came from.

Being A Real Reviewer

I am very proud of Tried And Tested: Derby House Breeches because it was my first proper review of a product I had been sent. I will only ever mention or review products I really believe in and if you’ve seen my Instagram feed you’ll know these breeches are one of my most worn items of clothing!

It is really hard to chose the posts I am most proud of because each and every one has had a lot of thought, time and effort poured into it.  My blog is, first and foremost, written as my personal record but I am proud of how it has developed into more than just my story telling!

Do you have a favourite blog post?  I would love to hear it if any stand out to you in any way.

  1. Happy Blogaversary! Congrats on your blog birthday! I’ve enjoyed them all. As a former nurse I love how responsible you are for your own recovery. You would be surprised at how many people think it is the health professionals responsibility to make them better. I’ve loved following your journey. Love that you post and the good and bad & that it is not all sugar coated as that is not real life particularly when you are recovering from an op like yours. Keep doing what you are doing please ☺️ Xx
