Way back in 2006, I started a blog. Yes, a legit blog.
We were getting ready to move to Germany for three years with our three young boys (8, 5 & 4) and I wanted family and friends to be able to follow along on our journey. Let me take you back to 2006…social media really wasn’t a thing. I mean Facebook started in 2004, but moms in their 30s weren’t the targeted market when Facebook first began.
It’s 2006 and blogspot was all the rage! And that’s where I started.
My blog wasn’t like blogs these days. There weren’t any links or tutorials. It was strictly a “family diary” – pictures and a little paragraph about what we had done. Do you want to laugh? You can read my very first post HERE. And if you are super bored you are welcome to take a deep dive. It’s not exciting, but there are a lot posts!
In 2012, I started my business…then I started a blogspot for my business…then I bought my website!
So, my “blogging” has grown and developed. Sure, my blog isn’t earth shattering. It’s a lot of gorgeous pictures of babies and families with a bit a humor and some (at least I like to think) great info.
Back in the day, I used to follow mom blogs. I really loved them. But they weren’t a lot different than mine. Moms sharing stories and pictures.
Now with social media it’s easy to follow people like you, right? But oddly enough, I find myself following moms with young kids. I love listening to their stories and seeing their sweet littles and I appreciate the struggles and occasionally I buy a thing or two that they recommend.
So, I thought I’d share some of my faves with you. Because honestly, you probably have more in common with them than I do!
I hope you find a fun mom blogger to follow on this list! And that you’ll keep checking-in with MY BLOG now and again and PLEASE leave me some love (ie. comments). xo
