Becoming a blogger has been one of the best decisions I have made. I love having a way to express my main passion in life. Parenting.
I have noticed a few regular perceptions of mum bloggers where I have admittedly, had a little chuckle to myself.
“Mum bloggers spend no time with their kids”
Believe it or not, blogging has made me spend more time with Mole!
I love having my free time to play and admire her. I love watching her grow and being able to share our journey with the world.
I do my blogging as soon as she goes down for a nap or in the evening after she has gone to bed. Obviously if she is busy playing by herself I will check Instagram but what parent doesn’t nowadays?
If I wasn’t blogging I would most likely be back at work as I would have been desperate for something to keep my mind active.
“You’re only doing that so you can blog about it”
There has been times I’ll admit where I have done things so I can capture a photo. For example dressing Mole up in an outfit. But I think I would do that anyway even if I didn’t have a blog?
I also feel like I get out more and do more with her. I love sharing what we get up to online. I would still take her to as many activity days as I can so she can look back on her childhood and be happy.
Products have been a big one where sometimes I have been influenced. When I can see everyone talking about a product and I have got one too and felt the need to also talk about it. (Only if it was good of course.)
“You get everything for free”
I wish haha. I am kindly gifted products in return for a review. Reviews take a lot of work. You can easily spend hours making sure your content is up to scratch to impress the brand.
Some companies offer discounts for their products too which is handy.
The majority of the time I have paid full price for a product and I will be talking about it because I love it so much and want everyone to try it!
“You think you are the perfect mum”
No. I think I am talking on behalf of the majority of mum bloggers here. We do not think we are the perfect mum but we definitely try our hardest to be the best mum possible.
My life can look very put together through pictures. House will be spotless, makeup flawless and no baby snot on my clothes but that is probably for less than 5 minutes I can assure you.
I mainly spend my days in my pjs with a standard mum bun, tripping up over Moles toys left all over the floor.
I will also blog about my experience so far with Mole and any advice I can give I will do. This is to help as many people as I can, not to show off that I think I am a mother know it all haha.
What myths have you heard? I would love to know!
