Why And How I Started A Blog


I have a few of you asking why I started a blog. Years ago I had thought about doing one but I didn’t really know where to start or have enough confidence.

Over the years I have slowly built the confidence I needed to start. Plus I was feeling like I needed to help financially with our family bills so we can enjoy more trips.


Over the summer I was visiting my sister and she had a cute little Mickey Mouse chalkboard written on it, it said, “If you can dream it. You can do it.” -Walt Disney. Everything kind of clicked with me. When I got home that night, I started thinking about what I wanted to write about. (I’m so mad that I didn’t start sooner.)


I worked with children for over ten years before I had my two boys. I love children and have so many activities I wanted to share. I have a lot of mommy stories to share. My own and what I have experienced.


 It takes me a little bit longer to do pretty much everything. But with the technology we have now, it makes it a little bit easier. I have a few more steps to go through but it’s totally worth it. I use <a target=”_blank” href=”“>Grammarly to help me with my grammar. I chose Wix website and I’ve been very pleased with it from the beginning.  Wix customer service is amazing. They were able to walk me through it without getting frustrated with me. I’m so happy I went with Wix.


In the beginning, I used a Free Wix website that was good to start with. (Which I also use the free sites as well for quick landing pages.) I wanted to use Adsense to advertise ads on my website and use Amazon affiliated links on my website so I upgraded my account.


I’m learning every day. Reading as much as I can about blogging. I’m so happy that I found something that I like doing, it’s quite therapeutic. I have learned that blogs are really good for promoting a product you sell or a service you are selling. (subscribe, so you don’t miss out on my plans for the New Year on my blog.) Pinterest is my friend:)

If you are jumping in like I did, I would go with WIX website. Since I have been blogging for the last year, I decided to move my website over to WordPress and host with Siteground. It took me a LONG time to transfer everything over but I’m happy I made the change. Don’t know if I would have been able to start with WordPress.

I love how I can write whatever I want and it’s nice to do that since most of my days are filled with just young children. If I can do it, you should give it a try. I’m so thankful for coming across the Wix website with easy templates to follow. Also, probably would not have started if it wasn’t for <a target=”_blank” href=”“>Grammarly. Go ahead and try it, everybody has the right to say what they want. Love ya, Mary xoxoxo
