Blogging Insights: Committed

Another blogging question from Dr Tanya of “Salted Caramel”.


How committed are you to your blog?

I think that I am fairly committed to blogging. I don’t post in either blog every day, sometimes it may only be once a week on the doll blog because those posts take a bit more setting up but here I try to at least complete a couple of blogging challenge posts every week and sometimes on a good week I can get up to a post a day. Ideally I like to spend a couple of hours every day blogging but it doesn’t always happen.

What part,if any,do other bloggers play in your level of commitment?

My fellow bloggers play a huge part in keeping me motivated. If it weren’t for the writing and photography challenges that I participate in every week I would not post as often I’m sure. Over at the doll blog I have a fashion doll feature every Friday that’s been going for a few years now and no matter what happens I make sure that gets posted because I feel I would be letting the regular readers down if I didn’t.

Reading the comments on my blog is also something that keeps me committed. I always look first thing in the morning to see who has visited the blogs and to answer their comments. The WordPress community plays a big part in my commitment to blogging.


I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
