formerly Bew!ldered Bug

History certainly repeats itself!

On May 10, 2008, my Father’s 60th birthday, I was sitting on my couch wondering what to name my blog and what to write on my blog and if anyone would ever read it.  That little experiment, formerly known as Bew!ldered Bug, blossomed into so much and was originally created as a way to keep all my loved ones up to date with my wedding plans.  If you ever read or followed my former blog, you would know my family is very international, so it was a quick and easy way of just sending people the info they kept requesting.  It ended up being so much more – I ended up finding a love of writing – fiction, recipes, allergen free living tips, spoonie related blog, mental health related blogs, travel blogs and sponsored posts…..it ended up opening a whole community of amazing women (mostly) to me – many of whom are still the people I trust the most with my heart today!  It was almost fitting that when that marriage broke down, so did that blog….and when the marriage fell apart irretrievably, the blog then had to shut down to give me space to emotionally heal so that I could reach where I am today.

That’s why I thought it was SO VERY FITTING, to write today, even though the graphics here are free with this theme, even though  my life is a confused mess and even though I have no photos and nothing much else to say….because today, May 10, 2019 – my Fathers 71st birthday – I’ve found myself sitting on my couch wondering if this name really is a good one (it is so fitting), wondering if I should write about the same things I used to write about (still dunno), and wondering if I can ever somehow embrace the community and friendship and camraderie of the blogging world again although all my blogging friends are 10 years into the business ahead of me now!  Also, serendipitiously, I’m planning my second wedding to an amazing man who is sitting on the other side of this sofa to give me blogging space…..

It blows my mind.  History CERTAINLY REPEATS ITSELF!

So I’m no longer a “successful” blogger…..I cannot guarantee or promise a certain number of blogs a week or even a month and Yoast is yelling at me that my SEO sucks with this blog so no one may ever read it…but I can say that today, May 10, 2019….I’m back.  And I’m going to blog.  And I have no clue what I’m blogging about or why or how ….but I will do it because I enjoy it and I have been craving it and frankly, you miss me (I hope!) so I have a responsibility to do it.

Not all of the links on this blog work – but I’ve been slowly setting up new SM accounts etc…..so please look for me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (the last one is the same as before but with a different name).  Say hi, follow, like etc….help me find you all again please!

I really hope you’ll follow along and comment and engage because I’m going to need all the help I can get!

Thanks for reading 🙂

All my love,
Serena.

  1. Hey girlie!! It’s so awesome to see you back in the blogging saddle! I rebranded or rather self-branded and know how hard it is to jump back into the pool. Although I still host my mommy blog, my attention is on my lifestyle blog too. Slowly but surely, you will climb back up that ladder! You’re awesome like that!

    1. Thanks for the love, honey! I’m just jumping on to try a little more blogging 🙂 So not organized yet, but just randomly blogging. One day at a time. One word at a time 🙂

  2. Wishing you best of luck with your return to blogging. The blogging sphere is very different now to ten years ago, with many more full time professional bloggers out there but it’s still a friendly place in the main! ❤️

    1. MOST DEFINITELY different from 10 years ago. And very different across the pond too. I’m not going to be looking at monetization/sponsorship as much – will let this grow organically I think. Start interacting more on Twitter again as that seemed to work for me before. Will figure it out 🙂 Thank you for your support <3

  3. It’s good to have you back. I dont thinking very easy to just stop talking when you aren’t the kind of person who keeps quiet. Writing a blog is a safe space to sort out your feelings and I bet you have missed that. Welcome back 🙂

    1. My goodness, I have SO missed it! I have a private blog that I kept during the separation and divorce and a bit after. My life has been hectic and epic all at the same time. I am hoping to write all about it soon! Thank you for being such an amazing friend and support <3
