To reflect, I had hoped to make a little extra money through blogging, but I discovered along the way that being a truly monetized blog just isn't in me. I want to write from my heart and not post coupons or daily deals. That's not who I am. I hardly even use coupons! Though there are some good ones on my coupon tab right now... wink, wink!
Blogging does indeed take time and every person has to figure out for themselves what things in their lives deserve priority time. I was blogging 3 or more times a week in the beginning, mainly because I love writing and feel I have something to share with other parents. Maybe you can learn from my mistakes, maybe you can learn what I've learned, and often I can learn from or be comforted by you. These days my 'real' business is taking priority over most things, including my house and certainly this blog! So, though I blog today, I must also spend time with the two children who are home, do all the mountains of laundry in the house, blog for my business (we open in 2 days!) and try to catch a short nap (more on how my Train-obsessed 2-year-old wants to watch The Little Engine That Could at 2am another day!!!).
I love my blog, I love my readers and I love life! I really do. Every extreme moment and all those in-between.
