Why I Love being a blog mom || 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. #blogging #motherhood

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!

How I Can Afford To Be A Stay At Home Mom

How I Can Afford To Be A Stay At Home Mom

There are four major ways that I save enough money every month to be a stay at home mom: breastfeeding, parental child care, using cloth diapers, and swapping baby clothes with other moms. I’ll explain why being a stay at home mom makes more sense than me working full time. We’ll even discuss what my routine looks like because of staying at home (reality check). There are more than ten things listed in this post that can save you enough money to be a stay home with your little one too.

 

PERSPECTIVE || I live in the Seattle Washington area, taxes and child care is at an all-time high right now. My baby is currently three months old now. And I would much rather work from home than have a 9-5 job. Because ULTIMATELY, I want to be the one to raise my child. I also am just that type of person, I like independence and I’ve always preferred to run my own show. I never was one to enjoy working in a career for a big company. And I never went to college to learn a specific trade either.
