Hey. It’s me. Katie. Katie Middleton. Back blogging. Back with a new look on the blog. New everything… I am back. Wow, that was a cheesy intro huh?
I’ve wanted to come back to blogging. I really have, deep down, I missed it. I just had to figure a few things out first – my head, my mental health. Figuring out how to balance mum life, romantic life, fun life, every day life, job life… EVERYTHING. It’s been a long road not gonna lie.
After I posted ‘the future of Katie Middleton’ I had a longggg talk with Kayne and a few of my pals to talk about whether it’s worth me coming to blogging, could I handle it… You know the drill. Thankfully, they were all my lil’ cheerleaders so here I am.
So now what?
So, what can you expect?
My posting schedule is going to be pretty chilled because I have a baby which takes up sooooo much time but I am promising to post more than once a month. Ideally, I’d love to publish 2-3 posts a week but I know that is literally not going to be possible, not consistently anyway. But you can expect to see more of me.
I’m really going to try with my blog and with everything that comes with it.
and I mean try. As it stands, my job is up in the air and my last bit of maternity pay has been and gone. I don’t even know if I have a job anymore to be honest. So, I need to make this work. Freelancing, Instagramming, blogging, all of it.
Don’t get me wrong, we can get by on Kayne’s wage alone (we are very, very fortunate to be in this situation and this isn’t a brag either) but I’ve worked since I was 16, so I’m used to having a regular income. To go from a regular income to nothing, I literally can’t do it, as I type this – I’m getting all sweaty and panicky just thinking about it. It just felt nice to feel like I was contributing too. It sucks really, that this is what it’s come to but sometimes you’re left with little to no choice. So here’s to giving this freelancing/full time blogging thing a go (Wish me luck and send me lots of positive vibes pls and thank u x)

Oh and of course, I’m going to blog for ME. I’m not going to pander down to what I *think* everyone wants to see. I’m not going to pretend that my life is perfect and wonderful like a Disney Princess singing scene and portray that on my blog and social. I am going to be brutally honest about everything. My daily struggles, my loves, bug bears… Everything.
Especially now I’m a Mum. There’s this constant pressure to be the BeSt MuM and act like your child is the best thing since sliced bread. When y’know, it’s ok to say when your child has been a bit of a shitbag and everything else. It’s ok to not want to be a Mum for five minutes, to pee on your own, to have something to eat without a baby climbing up you to get your food… To have an hour where it’s not sniffing arses to see if they’ve done a massive shit in their nappy… You get the drill. *Waits for the hardcore mummy groups to come at me*
Eitherway, I’m excited to be back.
I’m excited to lose myself in the world of blogging again, feeling passionate about something. The little buzz I used to get when I shared content before, I want that back and even just typing this post alone, I can FEEL the buzz. It’s rather exciting isn’t it? How many times am I going to use the word excited(and variants of it)? Teehee.
Anyway, I hope you like the new look on the ol’ blog, the ‘new me’ and that you’ll come along on this adventure with me!
