Believe it or Not Being a Blogger Makes Me A Better Mum

|
Yep, you read that title right. How can being a blogger make me a better mum? After all so many people who are not familiar with the whole bloggersphere don't get it, and I'm not entirely sure that they will until they become a blogger themselves. But believe it or not, being a blogger makes me a better mum. 

BELIEVE IT OR NOT BEING A BLOGGER MAKES ME A BETTER MUM

It was a weekly cup of tea and a catch up with a friend that I realised that blogging means so much more to me than just a place to write. As we chatted about my blog and the many opportunities that have come my way I never actually realised exactly how passionate I was about my blog, my job, my corner of the internet. Whatever you want to call it. I realised that I don't just write in the hopes to empower parents in their whirlwind journey of parenthood, I actually write for me because I WANT to. That little tea date opened my eyes to the fact that I have finally found my passion. But me being so passionate actually inspired and encouraged my friend to being own personal journey in blogging. And that feels great. To know that with my passion for blogging, lots encouragement and a little push she decided to start her own blog in the hopes to make a difference to someone somewhere in the world. This blogging job is pretty amazing that you can actually go as far to help and encourage others to bite the bullet and become their own person in their own right. To share their story, to share their honesty, their passion, their love and to share their life even the hard parts. I don't think I have ever been so passionate about a job. As cringe as this may sound I do think that blogging is part of me and who I am now. I don't think I could ever not be a blogger. Even if I won the lottery I would probably blog about it. My little corner of the internet gives me an outlet. A way to be me, be honest to the point, not only with the world but myself. 

My blog and my platforms have really blossomed lately, and it's really helped me deal with some tricky parts in motherhood, life and so much more. Yes, I tend to use social media more than others mainly because my income depends on the shares, comments and likes. But even if I am not I do love social media and getting lost in all the beauty of pretty pictures, baby spam and food. But even if you can't understand that being a blogger makes me a better mum sit tight because I will tell you exactly why.

When I pressed the publish button for the first time I had no idea that it would have lead to me getting some real and genuine friendships, it's strange to think that you can build an amazing relationship with someone without actually meeting face to face. There is a whole community who understand the whole passions of the perfect Instagram photo. They understand the pressures of followers and engagement and making sure that your SEO is on point, even though many of us have yet to master the whole idea of SEO. But being a blogger has opened up many doors to new friendships who are always on the end of a twitter rant or there to offer advice in those Instagram pods. But that aside, there is always someone there to offer advice or encouragement when it comes to being a mum. I know only too well that being a new mum can be pretty lonely and isolating experience and my blog helped me feel part of a community of parents and I am a better mum because of it.

Using my blog and sharing content has help me stumbled across so many great blogs that offer some amazing advice when it comes to this whirlwind journey of  being a parent. And by connecting with different parents online has opened me up to a whole world of parenting ideas. Now I am not talking about becoming to the perfect pinterest mum or making sure that I get the perfect photo of the little lady for Instagram but actual advice on being a parent. From figuring sleeping patterns, dealing with milestones, weaning recipes or just something that we can all resonate with as parents.

My blog has open so many new ones that I never ever envisioned in my pathway to success. It really has. I am actually making myself a brand and by writing about my life as a mum I have realised my passion, writing. It means so much that people actually read my posts, it makes me appreciate myself so much more and to realise my worth. But it doesn't just stop there. Becoming a blogger can help with so many careers, not just writing your blog. If you wanted to get involved with social media marketing, become a freelancer or work in PR, writing a little blog can help steer you in the right direction.  As a woman, I have seen myself grow. As a mother, I have seen myself achieve. Trust me, being a woman cannot be easy at times, but being a woman is the most magical thing that could happen to a woman. And I want to show my daughter that anything is possible. Yes I may not have a traditional job but nonetheless I get to earn whilst spending as much time with her. Can Mother's have it all? Sure as hell they can!!! I’m proud of the fact that I’m working from home and I’m living an ambitious life. I’m proud of the fact that after I became a mother, it gave me the strength to do something so that it sets an example for my daughter that she could live and look up to.

As well as getting many opportunities to discover new toys, new gadgets or new apps we have also discovered new places, had amazing days out and even gone away as a family thanks to this little blog. I will be forever grateful for all the opportunities that my blog has given me and my family. We have discovered so much more, and things that we wouldn't normally think about doing if it wasn't for this blog. My blog and my social media platforms has opened up a completely new world for me and my family. And I couldn't be happier about it. 

So like I said believe it or not being a blogger makes me a better mum. And blogging has opened a new world for me and has shown me what I am really passionate about. I’m proud of the fact that I’m working from home and I’m living an ambitious life. I’m proud of the fact that after I became a mother, it gave me the strength to do something so that it sets an example for my daughter that she could live and look up to.
