Creativity Outlet

When we spend all of our time loving on our kiddos, it is easy to lose ourselves. Whether we are working on school projects, helping our kiddos navigate the strange and scary new world of walking or some other task, we don't get a lot of time to be creative.

Having a blog allows us to put together content where people can view our opinions, wishes, hopes, and dreams or whatever else we want to share. When we have the ability to create and share with others, it is a healthy experience.

Blogging doesn't have to have any specific structure. There are no real rules for blogging. This is your world and you can do what you want to do.

If you have an art or craft that you do offline, you can share this on your blog and double your creative outlet. Share your talents with the world.

Connect With Other Adults

When you're a stay at home mom, it can feel like you're totally out of the adult scene. You know all of the latest songs from Paw Patrol but you aren't sure what is on the Top 40.

Having your own blog is a way for you to enter into the adult world - even if it is just for a little while.

Blogging can bring you closer to new friends and people that have similar interests. Being able to connect with other adults and have fun while making a valuable contribution through your blog can make life much more interesting.

Learn And Share About a Topic You Enjoy

When you start a blog, you should make it about something you enjoy doing. When you write about something you enjoy doing, you will be able to spend time researching and learning more about that field.

If you try to write a blog about something you aren't passionate about, you aren't likely to follow through with it. You are likely to get bored and move on to something else without seeing the results you want to see.

Let's say that you really love cats. You can write a blog about different breeds of cats, cat training, cat toys and more. There are plenty of things to write about but until you get into it, you won't know all of the sub-topics there are.

Possibility to Make Money

When you learn how to blog, you may choose to try to make money with your blog. Making money blogging can be a way to allow stay-at-home moms to contribute financially.

Most people don't make money with their blogs so be ready to fail miserably, but for those that follow through and make it happen, it can be a very lucrative venture.

There are a lot of ways you can make money with a blog, but the main ways people do this is through ad revenue or through affiliate programs. Either of these ways to make money using a blog are valid means of generating income.

Become a Better Writer

The more you write, the better you get as a writer. When you start your blog, you need to blog consistently. Consistent blogging means you have a good opportunity to hone your skills.

If you become a great blog writer, you may choose to do other writing like books which can be very rewarding as well.

Writing is a valuable skill and it can help your kids as they grow. If mom knows how to write well then she can help when her kids are learning English or want to pursue a career in writing.

Getting Started With Your Blog

When you're a stay at home mom, you might think that starting a blog is going to be just another stress on your schedule. Instead of thinking about it as something that is going to take away from what you have, think about it as a positive thing for your sanity.

If we moms don't take care of ourselves, it is really hard for us to give our kids and those that we love the true attention and care they deserve. Self-care is just as important as taking care of everyone else - if not more important.

Take a chance on yourself and do something you are excited about.
