I Love Blogging
After getting into the grove with motherhood and staying at home I needed a new creative outlet. My toddler started taking longer naps and sleeping better at night. I found myself with a bit of free time and at first filled it with episodes of Downton Abbey and Sherlock. I’m a sucker for those British accents! But I realized that I yearned to be more productive.
So I turned to blogging. I was already on social media all the time, I was already reading and commenting on other blogs, and, like many other stay at home mommas, I wanted to make money part time.
Blogging has been perfect for me as a stay at home mom
- Flexibility – blogging can be done when my toddler naps or plays outside. I can work in 10 minute sprints and move my laptop around the house to different rooms as she plays.
- Creativity – I am in complete control of what I do with my blog. I am my own boss, my own marketing and sales department, and my own writer. I can decide what I do each day.
- Unlimited Potential – the potential for making money with a blog is amazing! There are moms who make a few hundred dollars a month to help cover groceries, and then there are mom bloggers who make enough to purchase a Toyota Sienna each month!
- Improved Skills – I have improved my writing, communication and photography skills with blogging. I have also learned so much about the current technology and marketing techniques that exist and it’s been very exciting!
- I am More Fun – Instead of just telling my hubby about the latest episode of Downton Abbey when he comes home, I can share with him the number of sales I made that day or how my post went viral. My stay at home mommy life has become a bit more exciting!
- Friends – I have made some fantastic contacts through blogging. But mostly, I’ve made a best blogging buddy friend! We share the same goals in our blogging adventures and we promote, encourage and critique each other. She is always on Facebook for a quick chat or check in. I encourage you to reach out to other bloggers and build relationships with your ‘virtual coworkers’.
- Save Money – I saved over $400 my first month of blogging! This is what a good hobby can do for you. Instead of spending my time shopping on Amazon or in Target, I now invest my time into a blog that will bring in an income!
