Um….so little old me, a nobody from a small town in Oregon wrote her 100th blog on Friday. When I started blogging I had a vision in my head of what it’d be like, but boy was I wrong. I knew someday I’d hit this milestone, but I can’t believe I’m here right now. It’s crazy. I just want to say thank you to everyone for following, reading, liking, commenting, just being here for support. I couldn’t do this without you all.
Here’s a question from one of my followers:
” How do you juggle being a mom, a wife, and a blogger at the same time and totally rock it all while looking amazing?”
This is a great question. First of all thank you for saying I look amazing, but um….I rarely look like the pictures I use in my blogs or post on my social media pages. Girl I’m a hot mess 99% of the time. The picture below is me currently enjoying my coffee in my sweats. Remember when I said social media is a small fraction of people’s lives? Yeah I only post the ‘good’ pictures like just about everyone else. Not that I wouldn’t post more real raw life pictures because I totally do, just not as often. I have adult acne, I rarely wear makeup, and I live in sweats. This is the real me.
Second of all, I have no idea. If I’m being completely honest, I don’t know how I do it. Some days are easy and some days are hard. I just blog when I have time or have something I want to blog about. Sometimes that’s late nights, early mornings, or even blogging while making dinner or helping with homework. If I don’t have time, I make time. It’s all about balance. No matter what the day looks like I make everything a priority – my kids, my husband, my blog, cleaning, everything. Even if that’s just 15 minutes a day working so that my kids can have more time. It’s not always easy, but I take it one day at a time. Once you initially ease into something new it becomes apart of your life and you do what you can to make it work.
Thank you for asking such a great question. I look forward to answering more questions in the future and growing Sassy Mamaroo into everything I imagined it to be. Thank you for 100 blogs and following me and motivating me to bring my dream to life.
