I have to start by saying “What a journey! Absolutely Amazing!”. And it’s only starting.
It’s been exactly three weeks since I started this blog and let me tell you something: “It’s Addictive”. I mean, I would do blog activities all day long until late at night. Sometimes, when I’m with my family, I would look at the phone just to see what happens in the blogosphere.
Since I was a little girl I loved writing. I wrote poems, mostly about love, little imaginative stories and I dreamed of becoming a famous writer. Of course, things didn’t happen as planned. Instead, I studied economics and got a job in a bank. Things can get complicated sometimes.
Since the beginning of the year, I’ve become, once again, more attracted in writing and blogging. I’ve started to read more books and explored this blogging thing. Everything was so appealing, and it still is. I’ve taken a freelance writing class and I’ve studied almost everything about blogging.
I was (and still am) passionate and excited about starting my blogging adventures, so I set up a free WordPress site and after two weeks I realized that I needed my own self-hosted domain.
So, let me tell you, my friends, why I started Blondie Mommy’s Stories blog.
My Passion to Write
To become a better writer you have to practice writing as often as you can, so I thought “Why not start a blog and practice my passion here?” And better yet, share my passion with the world. (Besides article writing, I also love handwriting, as I’ve practiced a little bit of calligraphy).
To be Myself
Here, on Blondie Mommy’s Stories, I can be myself. Sometimes I can be blank, or critical about something, and sometimes I can be creative, but I will always be ME. I will always put my heart and soul in my writing and I will always write stories that are related to me and to my life.
Helping other Moms
I realize now how helpful it is to find little tips and tricks on motherhood challenges. If I would only have known some of them when I became a mother, maybe I would’ve done things differently.
I changed and learned while I ventured in this journey called parenting.
Sharing what I’ve learned with other moms and helping them in their adventures would be one of my biggest satisfactions.
Meeting New People
It’s only been three weeks since I began this blog and I realize that connecting with other bloggers is very important. You can learn from the ones that have experience in blogging, ask for help and tips.
I was happy to find that most of the fellow bloggers are so nice and helpful and a true inspiration also.
I’m not afraid to say that I intend on making a career from freelance writing and this blog is my first step on achieving this goal.
After quitting my day job, I can finally pursue a career in something I am passionate about.
Even so English is not my first language and I know that I’ll make mistakes along the way, I love what I do an I love doing it. What better reason than this?
What about you? Why did you start your blog (if you have one)?
