Why I Choose to Blog

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.



My Story.

Ever struggled with something?

For years I wanted to do something with my art. 

I tried selling my painting, That wasn’t bad but I couldn’t  support myself with a few $100 here and there.

I tried glass work when that was a fad. It made some nice spare change as well and took up a little less time than the paintings but if I divided how much I sold them for and how many hour I put into it I was only getting paid about $3-5 an hour. :/ I could never live off that. 

So I stopped art altogether. 

In that time I fell in love with the perfect man and married him. I moved to a new state and got a regular job.

We soon became pregnant so I quit to be a stay-at-home-mom. Although I always wanted to stay at home and watch them grow I still felt the need to help the family financially too.

My husband would constantly say “you are saving us hundreds by making her food, potty training at 4 months, not paying a baby-sitter….” but again, I wanted to do more.

I thought about blogging when I was pregnant with my first child. I looked into it, researched, even picked my domain name. But when it came to paying for a website I couldn’t bring myself to ask my husband if it would be ok to spend money on it. I tried and quit so many things in the past what if this didn’t work or it was just another fail at something?

So I pushed it under the rug and forgot about it for 3 years. All the while my heart yearning to help out more. My husband deserved a break. He treats me so well I wanted to return the favor. 

The news came. Our second was on the way. We were thrilled. Now the clock started all over for when I could go back to work to help out.

My husband travels a lot for his job and on one of his trips he was Facetiming our 3-year-old. When we hung up she hugged me and cried for a long time asking why Daddy wasn’t home, why he couldn’t play with her, if she could bring him home on her “magic”?

My heart broke so much it physically hurt. I think I cried more than she did. I couldn’t make her understand he was just working and he will be back in a few days. 

That’s when the idea hit me again, blogging. I read tons of success stories from stay-at-home moms who make an income from blogging and can still be with their family.

That day I decided. Sink or swim but I was going to give it my best efforts. I want my husband to retire sooner so he can stop traveling and watch his little girls grow up too. And not through a screen. 

I started the free version. I wanted to prove to myself and everyone that I could do this, if it worked I’d buy a site. I told my husband what I started and within a second he said “Babe, buy the site! I believe in you!”

So here I am. And I continue to surprise myself. My social media activity are all growing, I am gaining followers more and more and I continue to hit new heights. I LOVE what I am doing now! 

My thanks goes out to all of you. All my friends, fans and followers. If there weren’t people like you in the world I wouldn’t be here. So THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

If you are on the fence I’ve been there. I am no one special. Just an average stay-at-home mom making blogging work. You can too!
