Help! My Blog Is Dying.

23 Sep

 True: I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like to. Which is causing my blog to die a not-so-slow death. It’s sad, and pathetic, I know. So many other moms (much cooler/funnier/wittier/more interesting than myself) have GREAT blogs that people look forward to reading, and I only witness them becoming more and more popular. While my tiny little nobody blog sits in a corner and pouts with hardly any readers.

At this point, in all honesty, I’m wondering why I started this blog and left my previous blog behind. Yes, That blog slowed severely as well, due to my lack of blogging (I know, I’m the problem). But, for some reason I felt like starting over instead of nurturing what I had, which was my first real blog, and more “me“. Not that this blog isn’t “me“, I just notice now that I had been trying to force a blog that was a mixture of myself, and little bits and pieces of other mom blogs I admire. Am I the only mom blogger that is insecure about not only her coolness, but her blogging abilities as well? With another failed blog under arm, I’m feeling like that kid at the empty lunch table that no one is really interested in paying attention to because there are so many other cool people to hang with. This very well be largely due to my blogging dry spells. Yeah, yeah, you gotta keep up with it. But, hey, I’m a mom. I got things goin’ on.

Anyways, as much as I was hopeful of this blog opening doors for me, it hasn’t taken off. In fact, I had more readers with my old blog, where I just said whatever the hell was on my mind and didn’t try to fit everything in a box. Therefore, I’m feeling the need to go back to my old blog, and laying this one to rest.

I very much appreciate the readers I’ve had, the comments, advice, etc. And if you don’t already follow my old blog, I would really like you to!


I will be trying to keep up with blogging as much as I can, and also updating my pregnancy.  Come follow me!!!

How Do I Go From SAHM To WAHM?

21 May


Ever since I was thrown into motherhood, I’ve loved being a SAHM (stay at home mom). I loving being at home with my daughter (soon to be adding another), and I can’t imagine leaving everyday to work. Downfall: being broke. I’m really interested in working from home, but have no idea how to go about it. I don’t have too much experience in anything. All I know is, I love to write, and I love being a SAHM. But, I’d like to change that to a WAHM (work at home mom). I’ve scoured the internet for legitimate online jobs. I haven’t come across many, or any I would qualify for.

Would I like to be a paid blogger? YES. Is that as easy as it sounds? NO. Just because I love to write/blog, doesn’t mean people like or read what I write. Being liked is pretty much the golden ticket to success in anything. I’ve looked at blogging opportunities online that would be great, but I’m not qualified to be a technology blogger or food blogger. I’m a mom, I don’t go to fancy restaurants and take pictures of food. I’m tired, cooking, cleaning, time-outing, butt wiping, pregnant, opinionated, penny pinching, deep breath taking, writing my every thought and feeling qualified. Can I make a job out of that?
