So I have been blogging since March 2018. I didn’t really promote it until June. That being said, I have been posting all the while. I started out rusty with scattered topics and fuzzy iPhone pics. I grew and learned how to navigate blog software so my posts got “prettier”. My topics grew from scattered mom thoughts and diary like entries to formulated writings with links and printables and recipes.
My question is – who cares? Does anyone read what I am posting? Is it valuable to anyone? Maybe moms don’t care about the tips and tricks stuff and just want to read a diary of my crazy mom day? Or maybe they don’t care about my personal mom life and prefer the more informational posts?
This blog was created as a place for moms to come for fun and support. It is a place that I too wanted to find support! It is a place I had hoped to build a community. Is it THAT place?
I met a mama on twitter and she shared with me her blog. I was captivated. It was like reading her diary. It was raw and vulnerable and funny. No frills. I loved it. It made me think about my own blog and its purpose. It made me ask the question – what do mamas want/need to hear? WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY?
I type this as I sit wearing my dirty clothes from yesterday (commando because I have no clean underwear), not showered (and oh I need it), haven’t eaten breakfast (or had coffee). And I wonder, “what am I doing?”
