Why I Started Blogging

I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a years now, but I just never put that into motion.

I would always try to start one, then get overwhelmed with all the information about starting one, and quit. I’m also a huge procrastinator.

So after everything I’ve been through lately, I decided it was finally time.

I love to write and this seems to be a good outlet for that.

I also got back into reviewing and having a blog helps a lot with getting approved for things (for all you that want to review – keep that in mind).

I think having my blog now has proven to be quite therapeutic for me. I get to turn on Amazon Music – a little calming Enya or the like, and let my mind wonder, looking for ideas. Or let my fingers walk across the keyboard, creating a new blog post.

Being a Stay At Home Mom and not working (other than the full-time job of watching my kids), I feel like blogging has given me a purpose again. By that I mean, it’s made me feel important and like I’m actually doing something to contribute.

Because now, by starting to blog, I’ve vamped up my reviewing, which is allowing me to generate a (small) income. And let’s face it – any money I make, is better than the no money that I was making.

I’m loving having my laptop for this as well.

I think a huge part of why I kept pushing off starting a blog before is because I was going to have to write it from my phone. So, not the most ideal thing in the world.

But having a laptop truly has made it easiest – increased my motivation to keep on top of things.

Of course you know the kids are always trying to get it. “Mom, I play your puter?”, sneakily pushing random buttons, stealing the wireless mouse.. you know, typical 3 year old and 1 year old things.

Anyway, I’m greatly enjoying having my blog, and I have high hopes for it.

I sincerely hope everyone is enjoying it & I greatly thank you for reading and follow.

I also thank all those that are actively commenting and liking post as it helps me out a lot!

Thank you, thank you.

P.S. Check out Amazon Music – we have had it for over a year and absolutely love the unlimited music and the stations on it. (Check out their free trial!)

    1. I love Amazon music too. My fav this is to crank it and have a dance party with the kids, and I also like to put headphone on at night or early morning and listen to some calming Enya
