Hey friends! Happy hump day!
As you have probably seen on Instagram, My friend Arin and a few of my favorite bloggers are getting together this summer to share a Summer Blog Series with you! Today we are talking about how we got started blogging! I’ve loved this blogging journey and can’t wait to share it with you!
How It All Started
I started blogging just a little over two years ago. Ever since I first became a mom I knew I wanted to blog and share my tips, tricks, diy projects and inspire other moms. In all honesty I had NO CLUE what I was doing. I totally winged it and figured out everything through trial and error. My first posts were SOOO bad but I instantly fell in love sharing the things I love! It was so fun to share the fun things I do with my kids and it seemed like everyone loved the ideas and Inspo too! It also made me a funner mom as well because my whole goal was to make a magical childhood for my kids and along the way I started growing a following.
Before I started by blog I had been growing a following on Instagram and trying to find my niche. I started hashtaging my pictures and linking up with other “insta moms” where we would share about each other or link up on similar posts. It’s so crazy to look back now and see how much has changed and how much I’ve grown. I remember I couldn’t even fathom getting free stuff let alone getting paid for Instagramming.
I did this all for fun and hoped that eventually I could make a little money on the side to help provide for my family. Making money wasn’t my big goal. My goal was to make friends and have fun with my kids and I did just that! I became really close with other girls on the Instagram and Blogging world which made me feel happy, loved and that I’m not alone in this motherhood journey.
When I got around the 5k mark I got a new camera and started treating this more like a business. I would try out products and give brands feed back. I would post about the products I loved. Now several years later this is my full time job and I love it! I never thought I would be here and I’m so so thankful and grateful that I get to do what I love while being home with my babes!
My Advice To YOU
If this is something you’re contemplating to do. JUST DO IT! Go for it! Try new things and figure out what is your passion and post about that! Find people who have similar interests and become friends with them. All you have to do is START! You never know where it can take you or what doors will open up when you do something you love!
Let me know if you have any other questions, I would love to help you achieve your goals and dreams and do what you LOVE!
