So, as a blogger (if I can call myself one of those) you type away at your computer and then you hit publish. Once I’ve hit that button, I hope that what I’ve just written makes someone smile, makes someone laugh, has someone nodding in agreement, or just makes someone think, “goodness me, I’m glad my life isn’t as crap as that”…
I began writing Life is Knutts because I was encouraged to by family and friends (mostly because they were probably fed up with me writing my rambles on their Facebook feeds…) who told me I have a talent for writing.
I came up with the blog name because our surname is Nuttall. My other half and me played hockey and his nickname throughout his hockey years was, Knutts, because one of his mates misspelt his tour shirt one year and it said Knuttall instead of Nuttall. And so with a bit of imagination (and a spelling error cock up by a friend) Life is Knutts was born.
I’ve never thought of myself as having a talent for anything really (actually, thinking about it, maybe apart from Gin drinking…) and I was flattered that folks thought I was alright at something.
A year later…and here I am. I would say I’ve only been taking it ‘seriously’ (the blog, not my life) since Septmeber 2015 and I’m still learning a lot about how it all works (basically, I’m winging it, much like I am parenting…)
The MAD Blog awards run by Tots100 (they rank bloggers in a chart each month, I’ve never been very highly ranked – 1200ish out of 8500 I think – but I view that as being ‘undiscovered’ rather than crap…) are held every year and the best blogs are recognised and nominated in each of their categories.
I’d be super chuffed if any of you guys that read my inane chatter fancied spending 2 minutes nominating me in the ‘best newcomer’ category using the link below…

Because we are all a little Knutts really….
