Being a Blogger is...

The day I flew to Orlando I was tagged in this ‘Being a Blogger is…’ meme by Catie, who writes at Diary of an Imperfect Mum, and I wrote the post while sitting on the plane.

Blogging has changed my life and I can't imagine what I would be doing right now if I wasn't a blogger. A bored stay-at-home mum I guess. With two school-aged children my days would be empty without blogging.

Being a Blogger is... | Morgan's Milieu: Blogging is AWESOME!

Being a blogger is… 


A chance to be inspired. There are so many wonderful bloggers out there, and at first I saw them as my competition. I ruled myself out of the game before trying because they were so talented, I didn’t think I could compete. Now though things are different. Those same bloggers have been the ones that have cheered me on, inspired me on a daily basis, and are friends. 

Being a blogger is… 


Not something I ever thought I could earn money from but since starting blogging more consistently in January I’ve seen things grow. Little old me is starting to earn money through writing.

Not easy. I'm always learning and find new rules to follow or new things to learn on a daily basis. You have to learn about tech things, social media, scheduling, time-management, and so much more. 

Being a blogger is… 


One of the best things I could’ve ever done. I started blogging because I found out that authors should blog. At first I only wrote one or two posts per month and my view figures were not great. As I learned more about blogging and began reading and interacting with parent bloggers I found my blog changed. I was still blogging erratically but felt better about what I was writing. Then in January I started ‘properly’ and I’ve seen my little corner of the internet grow into my new passion. I truly love it and can’t imagine doing anything else.

Fun. I get to review products that the boys love, I get to go out for meals and do fun stuff. Some of the things I wouldn’t have even known about if it wasn’t for blogging. Blogging has opened doors I didn’t know were there.

Being a blogger is… 


An opportunity to connect with like-minded people. People from all over the country, and the world, who love their children and want to share their lives. I have connected with so many people through blogging and it is a wonderful and supportive community.

A chance to be the me I was always meant to be. Blogging works around my boys' timetables and that’s what I love. I can do something I feel is worthwhile and still be there for my boys, which is important to me. I am so pleased I stumbled across this thing!

There you have it, that’s what blogging is to me, what is it to you?

  7. I'm a newbie blogger and think the same now as you used to think. I cant imagine ever making money or doing reviews from my blog but the thing im getting out of it now is I enjoy writing and I enjoy reading others and meeting some nice people along the way! :)

    2. That's great Diane, I think you have to enjoy the writing first. Writing a blog needs to be about the love of it before you can do reviews. That's just my opinion of course. The reviews are great, and being paid to write is lovely, but what is the most satisfying is being paid to do something that I love to do. If you keep going, write from the heart and be yourself, you will get there. Believe it. xx

    1. Oh yes I know that feeling, I always want more time. I love writing, and for a while attempted to write a novel. In the end the blogging won and took over. I've never been happier!
