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.
