Finding out I was pregnant opened up a world of questions for the blog. When should I share the news? Are weekly bump photos something I want to do and share? How much of my child's life should be "public"? The list went on and on. Slowly, I came up with answers to some of the questions but not all of them.
Sidenote: I have absolutely nothing against mommy bloggers. In fact, there are quite a few "mommy blogs" that I enjoy reading a lot!
I'm not a mommy blogger. I started my blog as a hobby a year before I was married and long before trying for a baby. My blog isn't a mommy blog -it's a blog about enjoying life and all of the little moments that create our memories.
I'm not a mommy blogger. By definition, I am a lifestyle blogger. I'm also a mom. This means my life and experiences as a mom will find their way onto the blog. This doesn't mean that I'm giving up other topics. There's more to me and my creativity than life as a mom. (Though I will admit - it's a time consuming job.)
I'm not a mommy blogger. I have nothing against mommy blogs - I'm just not interested in changing paths at this point. My blog is about happiness and enjoying life. Right now, that means enjoying time with Baby Fox.
I'm not a mommy blogger. I don't want every piece of my child's life on the blog. Sure, I'll share some tidbits here and there but I have set unwritten boundaries. I even created an exclusive spot for close friends and family to see the moments that don't get shared on the blog or public social media.
I'm not a mommy blogger. I am a mom looking to share my experiences with others. I'm also a blogger looking to inspire those around me. This is why I'm starting a new series on the blog called "Mommy Moments" to give you a glimpse into the realities of pregnancy, postpartum recovery, and motherhood.
I'm not a mommy blogger. Keep that in mind when you're reading this blog. I'm simply a girl who became a blogger and then a mother - a girl who loves inspiring others by sharing her life and the lessons she's learned along the way.
