What This Blog is for Me and I want For You

As I enjoy the remainder of Summer break with my family, I am found thinking more and more about what this blog is for me and what I meant it to be for others. You see, every year I come up with ideas on how I am going to get my baby back on track {this blog is my baby}, but each year something goes on with the kids that leaves me just writing for therapy and income. While I love having this blog as a therapy outlet, my other blog Moms Vacation Land has become another outlet for me to rant like a fool. Here, on this blog, I want a few things to come from it.

What this blog is for me:

  • An outlet, therapy to get things off my mind. While writing my mind will almost automatically redirect to a positive outcome from a situation I may be writing out of frustration with.
  • A place to make money, since working from home 100% shortly before my middle child was born, that would be 2006, I have my online sites as income. Therefore writing daily and writing content for advertisers pays my family bills.
  • A fun community of amazing people. I have been blessed to meet so many other parents out there, not just moms either, that think like I do or are able to commend me for being so honest, outspoken and positive all at the same time no matter what I seem to have going on.
  • A support group. When times seem as if I can’t take one more moment, I have readers who can comment to remind me that I am doing my best, that they see how great of a Mom I am, how nice of a friend I am and sometimes, everyone needs a little reminder that they too are important and wonderful.

What I want For You:

  • A community; I want readers to be able to comment and utilize the threaded comment feature I implemented as a way to support, communicate and help each other be parents, individuals and get through with life every day.
  • A place where readers can come and learn that happiness truly is an attitude, that if you can train your brain to really believe you deserve and will get all that you wish in life, your heart will believe it and soon the universe will hand it to you. Okay, maybe not soon but when reading blog posts here readers will see that me sharing my power of thoughts turns into real experiences, items and such, maybe just maybe they will learn to think the same way to have their own piece of success and happiness.
  • A place to let readers have a chance to win items, great items, not just measly little items that have no real cost value. If I could host giveaways for high end items at least 2 times a year alongside my other giveaways, that would be fantastic!
  • A place to come together, not pass judgement, to know they are safe here speaking to me in comments or through email to find a way to cope with whatever they have going on. I love helping others. If this blog can help others in any positive way, I am all for it!

Truth be told, these are all things I have wanted this blog to be for me and for others, but with having my “baby” of the family home with the exception of a few hours for Pre-K last year and a couple days a week with his Dad, I have not been able to truly pursue my line of work in the way I meant to from day one. This school season I will have all three children in school full time, it’s a sad time but also a wonderful time for me, because for the first time since 2006 I will have time to dedicate to my online baby, because my other “babies” will be taken care of in school all day long.

I ask you this, do all of your kids go to school full time? How long have you not had little ones around? Was it a big change when they all went off to school?

    Great outline to help readers understand where you’re coming from. I’ve been homeschooling my daughter for the past 8 years so she’s ALWAYS with me. Let’s just say that she’s learned to play well by herself at times :)

    I don’t have kids and my blog is my full-time business, and I STILL don’t have enough time, so man, I can only imagine what a big difference it will make for you when all 3 kids are in school full time and you have more time to work on the business. Hats off to you, mama, for wearing so many hats! (I’m really tired so I hope my pun made sense, LOL) I love hearing your goals for the site and what you get out of it. Excited for you!

    I like to visit here because you keep it real, and you have a great outlook on things, even when things aren’t always rosy (and they’re never always rosy).
