When my second daughter had a year and a half, I lost my job. For months I couldn’t stop thinking about what to do with my life. Being 39 years old and no desire for what I want to do with my life gave me some headaches and sleepless nights. One day I read an article asking me if I want to be a blogger…
My friends often told me that I should share my knowledge on motherhood and everything that comes along, but I was too shy and had some lack of confidence.
Eventually, I decided…. I want to be a blogger and earn some money. I read lots of sites on Google saying it is so easy to be a blogger, so I started 10 months ago with my journey. I created a blog, found a great name for my site, my niche, and then it all started.
First, I must state that my native language is Croatian, but I knew I will have better chances of success writing in English. I really wanted to be heard globally.
Slowly, my site had more and more valuable content, but no traffic. I had to dig deeper. I started a Facebook and Pinterest account for my site to gain some more followers. I learned every single bit about everything…. Still, I am no expert, but a genius compared to what I was 10 months ago.
It is a slow-rising job and takes a lot of effort, but for the first time in my life, I had obligations that make my heart rate go up, and really fulfill me. How many nights I had the best idea on what to write that it made me get up at 1 am and start writing. It is something I believe in and am sure I will make it.
To be a blogger is a 24/7 job
If you think that it is too much for you at the very beginning, don’t give up… If it gives you butterflies in your stomach it is probably something that suits you. I wish I could demonstrate to you how thrilled I am to wake up in the morning, sit at my laptop and start writing. To be honest, writing is the easiest part, but every obstacle that comes in my way pushes me even further. I have never been so excited about anything in my life… Besides my family of course. But this is all mine… it’s my baby that grows and prospers every day.
Being a blogger is no easy job, it is sometimes a 24/7 job, but there was not one moment in my mind to give it up.
Be a role model to your kids
My kids always say: ˝Mommy, why do you sit at your laptop all the time?˝ My girls are now 2.5 and 6 years old and are used to having me 100%, so they cant understand sometimes. I try my best to explain it to them, and they are my biggest reason to succeed. To show them not to give up in life and keep going if they believe in something. I want to make it so that one day when I have thousands of followers and start making enough money I can have more time for my family. So that I don’t have to go to work and live a sick child at home and be crushed about it. I want them to be proud of their mom.
So, now my site is slowly growing, with no serious money in my hands… but I will get there! I promise…
First I started writing, then with time I started with crafts for kids, then added video tutorials on YouTube… where will I end? I don’t know, the sky is my limit. Here is one of my best YouTube videos 🙂
If you are reading this and wondering should you start this adventure, or not… I say ˝Go for it!˝Be persistent, read a lot and learn. Grow and be successful. We moms are lionesses and life has taught us so much… it is time to share it with the world and all the parents out there.
