A Proud Week – Wednesday Wisdom 4

A Proud Week – Wednesday Wisdom 4

I was going to let this little milestone pass by and then I thought again. This week I’ve achieved something that I am incredibly proud of. So what better place to share it than within this week’s Wednesday Wisdom.

This week I achieved something that I thought was impossible. Or at the very least, a long way off. It was all down to a little bit of courage, bravery and determination. This week I was published for the first time by the Huffington Post and as I sit and write this I can proudly say that I’m officially a Huffington Post Blogger.


I emailed them last week and sent them a few links and the very next day they replied saying that they would love to invite me to be part of their blogging team. I uploaded a post and yesterday it was published. Overnight it got shared by them on Twitter. This morning on their Facebook and later in the morning I noticed it was one of their featured posts on their main Parenting page. I am still blown away that this has happened. Obviously I have taken a screen shot to mark the occsasion.


I genuinely still can’t believe I have come this far and am so excited about uploading more posts to see how well they are received.

This week’s quote couldn’t be more apt.

It always seems impossible until it’s done

– Nelson Mandela

Even though you may have read the original post, please do check out my article on The Huffington Post. Show it some love. Give it a ‘like’ or a ‘share’ or whatever you fancy. I’ll love you forever.

See you next week.

    Congrats! I tried with a couple of my very first posts but can already spot why they were not really ‘sharable’ so maybe I’ll give it another try! #SharingTheBlogLove
