I am a mother of an awesome daughter and two amazing boys. I am also a wife, cook , maid, chauffeur, self-taught nurse, referee, mediator, exc.. I bet you’re thinking this lady must be rich with all these jobs. You’re right , but it’s not the kind of rich that involves money. I’m rich in love, stress, insanity, happiness, as well as so many other riches only a parent finds more valuable than gold. Being a mother is the best job in the world most days, but I’ll admit there are some days I just want tuck tail and run with what little sanity I have secretly stashed away in case of emergency. I started this blog to help other moms , but truthfully I hope it helps me too. I try to keep things short and sweet . Most of my posts are going to be poetic. I realize poetry is an acquired taste and not everyone is going to like it. When I write I tell a story about my life. Every poem or post I write will be genuine and completely from my heart. I hope other moms can relate to my blog. Being a mother means living a life full of beautifully bitter-sweet moments with a dash of chaos. All we can do is hang on and enjoy the roller-coaster ride. Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll follow my blog. 🙂
It’s officially been a year since I started my motherhood blog.
So in honor of my 1 year anniversary I’ve decided to answer some questions I made for myself to reflect on the impact blogging has had on my life this past year.
why did I start the blog?
I started my blog because I wanted to share my story and I needed to know there were other people out there that had already been where I was and survived the motherhood struggle. I also wanted to help new moms by sharing my struggles and triumphs.
How has blogging enriched my life?
Blogging has enriched my life by giving me a a different outlook on life. When I post a memoir and people read it, like it, or comment on it I feel validated in a sense. When I read a fellow bloggers post it reminds me that I am not alone in this world and everyone has struggles and we are all just trying to survive and thrive.
If I could go back one year knowing what I know now would I still have started blogging?
100% yes! Blogging has opened me up more than I ever would have without it.I have shared some difficult posts about my failures as a mother. Fellow bloggers always lifted me right up with likes and comments just to let me know they understood that being a mother is one of the hardest jobs in the world and no one is perfect.
Would I recommend starting a blog to other moms?
I would recommend blogging if they wanted their voice to be heard. That being said I would also explain that they would need to have patience and be considerate of others in their blog. It took my blog a year to gain 150 followers but other blogs have thousands after only six months. So patience is extremely necessary! Rome wasn’t built in a day ;).
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and learned a lot about me.
I would like to share one even more personal detail about myself in honor of my one year anniversary . My name is Amber ❤
