There is no greater reward than being a mother, but believe me, for all those expecting moms out there, you sure do have your work cut out for you in order to earn that reward. It was only when I had my second child that I realized, being prepared for any scenario was better…
Keeping your home clean can be an exhausting task, especially if you have to squeeze it in between the chaos and work and keeping your family in line. And if your life feels like it’s nothing but cleaning and tedious chores, perhaps it’s…
The weather is getting hotter and hotter, and if you haven’t done it already, you are probably getting ready to open your pool and start the swimming season. Having a pool in your backyard is wonderful, but it requires quite some effort before you…
So many mom bloggers are in different phases of blogging. Some are brand-new to blogging and consider it a hobby. Other moms have been blogging for years and now consider it a hybrid between a hobby and a job. And some mom bloggers approach their blogs strictly from a business point of view.

I am new to blogging, but i think it is kind of going to be a way to vent maybe? Or even just talk as my husband never listens to anything I say..lol. Not really sure yet..lol, but I am sure I will figure it out along the way.
I started to approach my blog as a job and quickly began to feel the stresses and burnout with any "job" so I quickly abandoned that point of view and looked at my blog as I once did, a hobby, fun, a love. No stressers, no pressure, I feel that if you completely approach your blog as a business it will show as will your writing and reviews. The lack of passion will shine through, the lack of eloquence, a blog is what you make it so whatever choice you make is up to you and NO ONE can tell you how to run your blog or how your blog should be. Regardless of all the "guru's" or self-proclaimed "know it alls." Do what works for you and enjoy the experience.

Hmm.. this is an interestng question.. Blogging at my personal blog The Mom Writes is a passion, a pastime that allows me to connect with other moms, discuss, read and share. Blogging and writing at other places and sites is definitely a job:-)
My blog started as a way to keep friend and family updated on the status of my daughter's upcoming transplant. I've started to try to expand my audience, though, to try to reach out to other families in a similar situation.
