I blog for a variety of reasons
- Because I love it. I just enjoy writing and entertaining, it’s fun for me
- To have a creative outlet that also brings in money
- Because owning a business was a huge goal
- To educate, inform, help and inspire subtly on topics I care about (wellness, motherhood, hair, lifestyle at large, travel, fitness, and the law of attraction etc…)
- To share who I am, what I love, my life and family and connect in a larger way
- Narcissism. There’s a slight touch of narcissism in every blogger. (Others may deny it, but it’s true!)
I’ve gotten emails so full of love and appreciation that make me feel like there’s no way I can stop blogging, cuz this lil place on the web is changing lives for the better!! (Yes I get the hate-filled emails too, but nobody cares about those fools.)
When I started blogging it was to share my journey, nobody was reading, I didn’t care, I still wrote. It was a hobby. People cared about growing natural hair, and wanted to send me free conditioner!? Hell yes! Then I realized I could earn money, and even a living with this… and it was on.
I had no idea I’d make real life mommy friends through this bloggy world, but it’s an awesome byproduct!
I asked a few other mom bloggers to chime in as to why they blog, and their answers are below.
