I started blogging back in 2011 when I was just a mum of two. I found out about blogging by chance and I am so grateful I did. I was instantly inspired so I created my blog and started writing about my life. I soon started getting emails about reviewing products and I was being invited to events that I would never have experienced if I didn’t step out of my comfort zone and get creative. Six Years later I still love blogging but even more now as it really helps mums change their families lives whether its getting a few freebies here and there or the blog becoming a full time career.
So if you are considering starting a blog as a hobby or to turn into a business this may just help you. Here are 5 Reasons why you should become a Mummy Blogger.
YOU CAN FOCUS ON SOMETHING FOR YOU
From experience I know that when we become a mum we feel like we have lost our identity. For the first time in our lives we are not number one, our children are our priority. Our social lives, hobbies, careers get put aside and we feel lost even though we are so happy with our babies. Blogging is something for you that you can do at home around your children so you get the best of both worlds. It is so important that mums get a break and time for themselves as we deserve a rest and balance in our lives, a happier mum means happier children.
2.NEW OPPORTUNITIES & EXPERIENCES
When I first became a blogger it didn’t take long until I was receiving emails from brands asking if I would review their products, I jumped at the chance even if it was bubble bath for the children. It was a opportunity to bring something to the family because I wasn’t bringing in money. I guess it stopped me feeling guilty for not earning. I was invited to amazing opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible without a blog. Some of the opportunities I experienced was being invited to Next HQ, meeting Elmo, going to the safari park, startrite shoes event, LEGOLAND. I am do grateful for those opportunities because as a stay at home mum it was amazing to get out and about and have fun with my family.
3. YOU CAN BECOME A ENTREPRENEUR AND TURN YOUR BLOG INTO A BUSINESS
What is amazing is that you can turn your blog into a business and work for yourself. You will actually be earning a living through something you love. Having a blogging business means you can work around your children, if you want to work when they nap or are asleep then you can spend the day being a mum and run your business at night. You get to set your own hours and you can work a schedule to suit your life.
4. YOU CAN MAKE MONEY
You can make money through your blog to help a little towards the family finances or you can turn your blog into a part or full time income. It really depends on what time you have and the effort you put in. The different ways to earn through blogging are sponsored posts, ads, affiliate sales and selling your own products.
5.YOU WILL MEET LIKE MINDED PEOPLE
The blogging community is amazing, you will find people that have already achieved your goals that inspire you and you will find people that are at your level that you can both support on your journey. Working for yourself can be lonely so its great you can connect with others online or offline and enjoy the company of someone in a similar business.
