What to do when the blog takes off!

I feel really lucky because my blog is beginning to earn me a little money. I’m very proud of that fact especially after just a year. My only worry is that with writing or accepting material for other people and companies, my blog may begin to follow a different path to the one I expected or wanted. Posts may not be totally my idea or may not present in the way that I would like them to. I’m very protective of my little corner of the internet!

So here is my dilemma folks….do I carry on and accept all paid work? Or do I take a step back and take back the blog? I am working full-time as a teacher and juggling the two is tricky but manageable at the moment. The extra money is lovely too! I also would not post anything I didn’t fully agree with.

I suppose it comes down to why I started blogging in the first place and what my aims were. You can read about that here

I would love to hear your views people of the internet! In the meantime, enjoy this lovely flat-lay image!

Six on Saturday: the realities of gardening in November.

Hello everyone and here is my Six on Saturday!

Six on Saturday was started over at The Propagator Blog so I try to join in when I can.

It’s very wet and rainy here and after a blustery walk with Dottie, I’m enjoying a cup of coffee before going to my daughters last EVER school hockey match. Where did that time go? We are off to Cheltenham so I thought I’d quickly take some pictures of my garden.
