WHY I STARTED BLOGGING...AGAIN
You may or may not know this (depending on how long you have followed me on Instagram), but I actually used to be a mommy blogger. Yep. I blogged…and then I quit blogging…and then I started blogging again lol.
In my previous blogging days, blogging legitimately stressed me out. I was so caught up in how many words each blog post had to be, citing my sources, SEO (if you aren’t already familiar with this term don’t even bother Googling it because it’s way too confusing, even for a blogger), and all the other things. I felt like I had to do what every other mommy blogger was doing, and it really took away my authenticity. I was never able to find my own voice.
Not to mention, y’all know I am huge health nut so I blogged about natural health, especially for children, and it was not very well received by the other mommy bloggers who were getting paid to post blogs about Children’s Tylenol, Orajel, Johnson&Johnson, or other non-natural children’s product.
It was rough to say the least, so one day I just stopped. I am firm believer in letting go of what is no longer serving you, and blogging was definitely not serving me.
Very recently, a few months ago actually, I sort of fell back into it. I knew I wanted to have a website for my business, and had intentions on podcasting, so I wanted to have a “hub” if you will for people to go to and connect with me.
I had no idea at the time what I was going to do with it or write about, but one day I just started writing. The topics, the words, all of it just came to me. So I sat down, and started typing it all out.
I didn’t feel the pressure to cite my sources. In fact most of my posts don’t even have sources because I share from my own personal experience rather than worrying about inauthentic information. This has also really helped me be sincere and true to who I am instead of trying to fit the mold of everyone else.
I don’t even know why all of this inspiration hit me when it did, but I feel like there is a very special reason it did. I feel like I am being drawn to the blogging world again to share my personal experiences and help you through this messy thing called life.
