“After I had my daughter, everything changed.”
So many moms have uttered a similar statement after having children. Going back to work after having a baby is so difficult. For many of us, we long to stay home with our kids but it just doesn’t seem possible. We simply can’t afford it. I felt the same way.
My 3-year-old daughter was spending 10+ hours at preschool each day. I wasn’t there for her assemblies and recitals, even the special mother’s day tea her class had planned. I felt like I was missing out on her childhood, and I just couldn’t do it anymore. Missing another important moment was no longer an option!
At this point, I had already been blogging as a hobby for about 9 years. I knew that it was possible to make a full-time income from it, but I was scared. Leaving my stable teaching job for the ups and downs of an online business seemed so risky. What if I failed?
I had a dream though. I wanted to work from home and spend more time with my family. So while I was still teaching, I got to work. Let me tell you – it hasn’t been easy. There are many late nights and early mornings, and sometimes (okay, many times) I doubt myself. But I haven’t given up.
It’s been a year now since I really buckled down. I am still teaching but getting so close to achieving my work from home dream! It’s so exciting!
How to Start a Successful WordPress Blog
Every mom who wants to stay home with her children should have that choice. I strongly believe that, and blogging is one way to make that happen. It’s not easy but it is possible
I personally know so many mothers who feel trapped in their job. They desperately want to work from home and spend more time with their kids, but it seems like an impossible dream. Let me tell you this… it’s NOT impossible. Blogging is hard work, but if you are dedicated and willing to learn, it’s something almost anyone can learn to do well.
After many conversations with women who are trying to start a blog, I have come to the conclusion that most people quit blogging because the feel completely overwhelmed. That’s definitely understandable, there is A TON to learn when it comes to blogging. Unfortunately, that feeling of overwhelm gets so bad, many woman give up before they even really start. It makes me so sad! Blogging isn’t easy, but it CAN change your life – you just have to “jump in,” and do it.
