You’re thinking of starting a blog?

Well first of all, how exciting!

Now, I’m only a tiny three months into the whole blogging malarkey but you want me to be honest with you? It’s the finest decision I’ve made in life by far! Before I began blogging I didn’t know what the hell I wanted to do career wise, I had ZERO goals set and I certainly didn’t work my lil ass off like I’m doing as you’re reading this (It feels blooming fantastic!!). I’ve found myself, this is where I was meant to be. Don’t get me wrong its a fat challenge attempting to crack on with several blog posts in my never ending schedule with the boys but i’m making it happen (slowly but surely), now and then it’ll take me up to a week to write a single paragraph yet other days I can get 2 whole posts scheduled…it all comes down to how long I can prise my eyes open for I suppose.

Blogging is the only thing that’s keeping me sane an the minute. SERIOUSLY. Put aside the shite filled nappies, snotty shoulders and toddler tantrums, my blog diary will always be there for me and the end of a tough day.

Having a place where I can vent, share my experiences and of course being my own motivator is the most refreshing thing ever. I’ve ALWAYS had a tendency to bottle up my feelings thoughts and emotions but now winging mama-hood allows me to express them all, ITS GREAT!

Now for the time being, I’m simply blogging for the enjoyment of it with a few reviews here and there, however I’m hoping to get to a stage where I’m blogging as a full time job! There’s nothing I’d love more than to work from home within the company of my children and partner I mean, who wouldn’t? I’m gonna do everything  and anything in my power to make it happen! My little positive corner of the internet can make it, I know it can.

So, you’re thinking about starting a blog?

Well lemme tell you something, you’ve overcome the hardest part! I imagine you have tons of ideas flashing through your head right? brilliant! The next step is to stop talking yourself out of it you crazy fool! GO FOR IT! There’s only you who decides where you go from here, don’t let those fab ideas of yours go to waste…you’ve got this!

I swear you’ll be left gobsmacked by the amount of support you’ll receive when stepping into the blogging community, everyone is so so friendly! Imagine in 5 years time you’re working from your laptop at home, you have oodles of lovely people that are excited for your next post, you have hundreds of new fellow blogger pals, you’re getting paid for doing what you enjoy the most and most important of all, you’re spending your work life surrounded by your family and children. It all sounds like a fairy-tale!

Where now?

Where are you going from reading this? Gonna scroll down Instagram, Twitter or Facebook? You gonna waste your time looking at folk online with their fancy cars and new houses? THAT COULD BE YOU! How are you gonna spend this next hour? Setting up the theme to your very own online space sounds good to me, pop me an Email/message- I’m all about helping out!

Your blog wont start itself! Is it an opportunity you can really just pop to one side? Just taste it at the very least! Dip your toes in rather than forcing yourself towards the deep end. If after a few weeks you definitely don’t reckon its for you or you see writing new content as a chore rather than a hobby then you’re more than likely right. You should never write a post based on the feeling that you NEED to, Its all about the enjoyment of it otherwise whats the point?

It took me a good 2 months to convince myself to finally take the plunge to create ‘winging mama-hood’ and as i say, I’m still fairly new to the blogging world but I’m 100% certain from the bottom of my heart that this WILL be my full time Job one day. That very thought gives me goosebumps. I NEED to make my children proud and this is way, I just know it.

So if you’re sat there thinking ‘Should I do it?’ ‘Should I take the plunge too?’ The answer is YES! Of course you should! This could be the opening to the next chapter of your life so reach out and snatch it with both hands!

You’ve got this.

Please, if you have any questions at all regarding blogging, getting started, help & advice, parenthood or anything at all pop me a message! I’ll never not get back to you!

Lots of love,

Joanne X
