Giveaway, Make

A Year in Review and Birthday Giveaway

I can’t believe it; Make, Do and Push! is one whole year old today!

It’s been an eventful year to say the least; I became a Mutti, we started planning our wedding, and thanks to my lovely little blog, I’ve kicked off my dream career as a freelance writer!
The year ahead is going to be even busier; with more wedding planning, returning to the day job from maternity leave and Busby growing fast!
I thought I’d take a look back on the past year and my past blog posts. 
My proudest achievements:
Being shortlisted for a BritMums BiB Award (I’m still amazed by this!) in the Fresh Voice category. 
Reaching 100,000 page views!
Registering myself as self-employed as a Freelance Writer. Eek!
My favourite posts:
My most popular posts:
What to expect from Make, Do and Push! next year:
More wedding related posts!
More crafty posts (probably wedding related!)
Hopefully more recipes and baking posts

Thank you to everyone who has commented, voted for, read and enjoyed Make, Do and Push! this year. I’d love to know what your favourite post has been!

    Well done! I had a read through some of your old posts the other night when I read through my changing bag post (thanks again for having me!) and it’s so lovely to see how Busby has grown up! I wonder if our blogs will still be about for Busby and Athena to read (& cringe at!) in their teens?!
