    Back in 2016, when I had just started my blog, I was averaging around 100 views per day. It was one of my blogging goals to grow page views by 10% each month. Now, half way through February, I am averaging around 400 page views per day, a growth of 300%!

    How did I grow page views in a couple of months and how do I sustain it?

    Here is a step by step guide to what I have done differently in 2017.

    Days Out // Pili Palas Nature World

    Now that Dexter is becoming more aware of his surroundings, we thought it would be a great idea to take him to another petting zoo type place. (We recently visited the petting zoo at Walton Hall gardens.) It’s so important to teach kids from a young age the importance of nature and how to be soft and gentle with living things. I remember going to Pili Palas myself as a youngster and absolutely loving it, so we decided to make the 80 mile trek over to Anglesey, thinking we could also drop in and see Dexter’s Great Grandma while we were there.

    Review: BIBaDO Coverall Bib

    One thing I’ve written about extensively whenever I’ve talked about our baby led weaning journey is the mess. The mess of baby led weaning can put so many mums off trying it. I wasn’t going to let it put me off but I have tried so many methods to minimise mess or avoid it all together:

    Sunshine Blogger Awards

    Thank you to the Rambling Mum for tagging me in the Sunshine Blogger Awards. I’d never heard of this before, but I am guessing the general gist is that I answer some questions, then tag a few more bloggers with some questions of my own. So, to start, I will answer Rambling Mum’s questions:

    BLW Recipe // Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

    As much as I love juicy meaty beef burgers, I am a little wary about how healthy they actually are, even when they are homemade. If you had suggested I would enjoy a vegetarian style burger a few months ago, I would have laughed in your face. That is the beauty of this baby led weaning journey; you try new things and find out you actually like them.

    We were about to have to pork and apple burgers which I’d made a few weeks ago and frozen, when I decided to mix together some sweet potato and spinach to create these healthy, delicious veggie burgers. I love it when inspiration just strikes like that!
