Since I was a kid, I was so much into writing. I wanted to write poems, and my love for my family. Sometimes, I write short stories. When I got older, my love for writing became deeper too, like it has become my way of communicating to my deeper emotions I couldn’t show. Until I got married. I became a stay at home mom. This new role has turn my world upsidedown.
Everything is new to me. The pressure and the pleasure are all of different kinds of levels. I still write at times, in a page of a book, in the back of grocery receipt, in a bondpaper l under my son’s messy scribbles. Until someone introduced me to blogging. Everything was learned manually so I had to crawl my way there. But, I must say, it changed my routine, it changed my mindset, it changed my patience, it changed my life, all for the better.
How Blogging Changed My Life
•Medium of Communication
It became my way of expressing my thoughts, my emotions, it made me realize I am under control. Before, I felt so left out, especially when I became a stay at home mom. It’s like I got disconnected to the outside world. No one is there to listen to my rants, no one to vent out to. My husband is a great man, but he can’t understand everything about motherhood. Blogging has made me share to my village of mommies and made me feel I am not alone.
•Blogging Gave Me Friends
Because I connect with other people all over the world and talk to them about blogging, about a topic in my article, about guest posting, it made me feel like I gained a friend somewhere else. Especially if someone is so nice to me. It’s like blogging is my way of talking to my dear friends all over the world, in hope that I am also giving them something they could use and learn.
They say being a mom of two is already stressful enough. Don’t you think blogging could only add stress that has piled up already? H*ll no! Whenever I think of nice thoughts to write about, whenever I think deeper, thoughts came overflowing and it makes me feel more relax and calm. Blogging could be stressful too, but mostly, it could relieve stress.
•Gives Me an Escape
From the daily routine, from the everyday mommy-wife life, from the chores, from the entire weight of responsibily in my shoulders, blogging is my escape. It makes me feel like I’m in a whole new world whenever I write about things from other mom’s perspectives. It gives motherhood a whole new view to look at.

You can look for a client to work with, or you can personally grow your blog and make ends meet. It will take so much time, energy, effort, and sometimes money too. But, it is fulfilling and rewarding.
