Here’s a top ten list of reasons why I love being a blog mom. A short list, but a meaningful one! As both being a mother and a blogger, are a dream come for me. I’m REALLY excited about my blogging and recent experiences online lately. SO much going on for me being a blog mom!
1 || The most obvious reason I love being a blogging mom is that I get to stay home with my daughter every day!
2 || I am my own boss!
3 || I choose when I work and when I don’t [when motherhood allows] !
4 || I get to be my baby’s role model, instead of hiring childcare!
5 || I get to share my thoughts, best advice, and helpful knowledge to those who can relate!
6 || I write about loving life, so it constantly reminds me how much I really do love my life!
7 || I get to do all the things I love to do like work on websites, help other bloggers, and write/type!
8 || I’m busy, but the blogging community is awesome to interact with and provides this busy mama some kind of social life!
9 || I get to take pictures and work on graphics and stuff, I dig it!
10 || I’m constantly learning more about blogging and marketing and I love that I can learn so much without having to go to college and spend thousands!!!
It’s a short list, I know.
But this is a really meaningful list!
I have a lot of freedom as a blogger. It’s not a career I need to be ashamed of, in fact, I can actively share my creations with great pride. And I don’t have to feel bad about pushing sales and gaining clients. All I do to gain income is super passive. And the service bloggers like me provide is simply resources to help others. I don’t feel bad about recommending services and products that I love. It feels great!
So this is where I encourage you to sign up for my newsletter and follow the blog. Why?
I want to help you get started in blogging. And to learn how much you can LOVE your LIFE, one day at a time, by blogging about your passion.
I want to quickly jump back to that last reason I love blogging, number 10…
Everything I’ve learned about blogging has been “self-taught”. I’ve spent countless hours, and days of my life, learning about blogging, marketing, social media, management, editorial calendars, SEO, writing skills. And I’ve invested very little money into an education. And there is still SO MUCH to learn. This is an ever-changing world of technology and it all moves SO FAST. Just about the time that I think I get ahead in knowledge and proficiency. A new version of Google, or social media changes, or SEO happen overnight it seems, and there’s a whole new set of rules and guides to follow and learn about.
But I will never have any large college debt. I will never have that level of stress by needing to constantly continue my education by paying a LOT of money for it.
Blogging is something I can do, I can learn. And there’s always going to be something new to get educated about, which is exciting!
And let me just say that the price tag on getting educated about Blogging is REALLY affordable. Sometimes it’s REALLY worthwhile to get that education while you can, at the best price possible.
Guys, I’m so excited to be hitting publish on this post right now. It feels so good! It’s not what I had planned for today. But I can’t help it, I’m really excited about being a blogger. And I feel so responsible to you, in telling you why I love being a blog mom!
