Why do I blog? Because it makes me happy!

Blogging has been the most addicting and freeing moves I have made.  A Thrifty Diva Surviving Mommy Hood will be three years strong in August.

My entire life, I have owned diaries and journals.  I wrote a lot, almost daily and nothing was left unwritten.  I know it wasn’t all pretty and I wrote some things that would make me cringe looking back (note to self, teenagers should never pour their roller coaster of emotions out on paper).  In a nut shell I have always journal-ed my life.  When I had a miscarriage in  2007, I found solace in a blogger who had gone through the same things I was facing.  I longed to have her strength and bravery to share my own struggles publicly. When I became pregnant a few months later, I started my own blog  and  slowly I had readers who weren’t my “in real life” friends.  The addiction to post everyday, became an obsession.  I loved sharing little tidbits into my life.  I found myself joining blogger communities and learning the ins and outs of the business side of blogging. I turned my  hobby of sharing my finds into a business and connecting my readers with brands in creative ways.

I have my cosmetology license and my Real Estate License.  All of these career moves have led me to being a stay at home mom, homeschooling my boys and writing a lifestyle blog.  I get to make my own rules each day, get creative with brands and pour my heart out whenever I want (the biggest stress reliever ever).

This is why I do what I do!

  1. Right on! I’ve journaled my whole life, too. It’s very therapeutic. Blogging has been a great thing for me, too.

  2. I loved my diary! I still have it and it’s a riot to read through it. I mostly talked about … boys? lol. I’m very sorry to hear about your loss. I can relate to that pain. =) Thanks for sharing.

  3. Great post! I often kept a diary as well and,like you, I found out that it wasn’t a good idea early on!

  4. I still keep a journal to this day or diary. No longer have the little rinky dink lock and key on it. HAHA Thanks for sharing with us.

  5. Love that you’ve found something you love to do in life. That’s so important.

  6. I feel the exact same way. I have been writing/journaling since the age of 5. I wrote my first short story at the age of 7 and I haven’t stopped writing since. I always figured that I would end up as a writer of some sort.

  7. Three years! That’s a great accomplishment. Congratulations, Michelle.

    I started blogging to capture my journey though motherhood but blogging has brought me so much more, including friends I never would have had without it. I’m a blogger forever! ;)
