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!
