I recently hit my 2 year mark of writing this blog in June. I just decided this week that I'm not playing by the rules anymore. I thoroughly enjoy it, as I find it as an outlet and a way to connect with all of you lovely moms, and women that are doing the best darn job you can, and cheering each other along as we go. It is something that I created on my own, and I am so grateful for where it has taken me. It is something that has evolved along the way and will continue to evolve.
When I first started I simply wanted to share some of my favorite things, products etc, as it is something I really enjoy doing. I don't want to keep a secret of the products, and ways that have made my life that much easier! That was it. I had no idea what route it was going to go, or how my life would pan out while writing this blog. I also shared one of my most life changing story here, which was so scary and vulnerable, but at the same time, extremely freeing.
After a while, I started listening to and reading blogging advice. One of the biggest pieces of advice was, I needed to have one niche, or focus. Well if anyone knows me, that's not me at all. Yes, my passion lays in fitness, but I have a ton of other obsessions that I love to talk about and share! I tried to keep my posts more narrowed, but after reflecting on how my blogging was going, it wasn't fun anymore. I felt like someone was telling me what to do. So get ready to have a mish-mesh of all things that make me happy, including, fashion, fitness, food, spirituality, parenthood, motherhood, marriage, etc. I am simply going to type what is on my heart, and what I am currently doing.
While listening to the blog experts, I also heard that I should pick one or two days where I post so my readers know when to find my new blog post. Well this has hindered me greatly. I am feeling like I need to abide by the rules and can't post on any other day than Friday, which doesn't always happen.
So if you like reading this blog, make sure you subscribe to it, so you see when new posts come out.
So if I feel so inclined to publish a blog post on a Wednesday, it will all be ok :) No one will slap my wrists!
I had a nice reminder over the weekend, that I do this for fun. This fills my soul. I enjoy writing. I enjoy sharing the products, and strategies that help me. I enjoy sharing some of my deep thoughts, as it's nice to know I'm not alone.
Motherhood can be a lonely place sometimes, and it's so easy to go down that spiral of feeling like we aren't enough as moms or we are doing it wrong. So here we are.
Rule breaking and all! I might post a workout, or I might share an outfit that I loved. You will also see some of my thoughts on life as I continue on my spiritual path of revelations. I am going to treat this blog, like I treat life. I'm going to share what I think sounds like fun. What I feel the pull to share, and that is it. No rules, no schedule, just what comes to me.
Have a beautiful day! Much LOVE,
