My simple goal to share my adventures and mis-adventures as a mum has turned out to be so much more. I have been a mum blogger for more than a decade now. Over the years, my blogging journey has been very fruitful and rewarding. It may have taken the back burner when I got busy looking after my school-aged little man, or doing freelance writing work, or since I landed a full-time position last year. It has continued to be a source of joy and fulfillment for me.

Having said that, I have listed 5 top reasons why I simply love blogging:

Chasing my passion

Blogging has allowed me to chase my passion ~ writing. It was Jared’s dad who suggested I give it a try because he knows that I absolutely love to write. I was also looking for ways to earn while I stay at home to care for my little man. It is rather timely that monetizing blogs has just become a trend. I made my very first blog on Blogspot. There, I shared anecdotes of our day-to-day lives, baby products that I have discovered, along with my personal musings.

Through my blog, I managed to chronicle my son’s childhood and re-discover my love for writing. I would spent hours upon hours drafting and writing posts, excited to publish them on the blog afterwards. I was also given the opportunity to write about topics and causes that are very close to my heart.

Sharing my blessings

In the past years, I’d always have a simple giveaway to celebrate my blog anniversary, but since the pandemic has made it difficult to ship prizes to the winners, I was unable to push through with my plans. But I have joined a group giveaway with my other mum blogger friends last year and it was such a big hit. Pooling our resources so we can provide one lucky mum with a laptop for her child’s online schooling is definitely most rewarding!

Indeed, my blog has also been a platform to share my blessings with my followers and supporters. Whether I share items I received from brands, or gifts and GCs, or of late, cash, it simply warms the heart that I am able to share in my own little way and to know that people appreciates it is truly very humbling.

Acknowledging all that we have been given is a great way to keep that attitude of gratitude burning in us. After all, there are just way too many reasons to ever be so thankful. Count the members of your family, include everyone who remembered you on Christmas or New Year’s. Or you can also count everyone who cared enough to give you gifts. All these people are but just another one good reason to be grateful.

This year, I hope we all find the time to be mindful about our gratitude. May we always be grateful for even the littlest of things.
