how to start a blog

I’m so honored to have been given the Blogger Recognition Award!! I wanted to create a space where moms can be REAL about all of the things that go with being a mom and I’m excited that Moving Through Momhood is doing just that!

A BIG thank you to  Ashlee at mamaimperfection.com for nominating me for this award! Her blog is an awesome place for moms to learn and grow in their marriages, parenting and faith, so go check it out!

ALL ABOUT MOVING THROUGH MOMHOOD

How did this blog come to be? Well, I started this blog for a couple of reasons. I am a mom to 3 teenage boys and as my kids grew from the sweet, chubby stage of childhood and into pre-teens and teens, I found that there were less and less resources for moms. Let’s be honest, the pre-teen and teenage years are when moms need help the most, because these years can be a challenge. I want this blog to be a place where moms raising pre-teens and teenagers can share, learn and connect and know that they are not alone!

I also want to help moms find balance. Moms, we know that we are the keepers in our family, right? We love our families, but doing ALL OF THE THINGS leaves little time for us to take care of ourselves, so I want to help moms find time in their busy day to fit in a quick workout, eat a healthy meal and take care of themselves.

ADVICE FOR OTHER BLOGGERS

My advice to anyone thinking about starting a blog is to be yourself. You have something unique to offer the world and you have a unique way of saying it, so do that. Don’t try to emulate bigger bloggers or pick a niche that you don’t like because you think it’ll bring readers. Be you, share your thoughts, your tips and your heart and people will respond.
