On Being a WAHM
That’s work at home mom. Not WHAM.
Anyone who’s read me long enough knows that up until this summer, I did about a post every few months on here wondering if I should blog anymore, what the point was, if I could keep doing this without being paid, etc.
Thankfully I think most of you stayed with me through all of that.
Then I got hired by Babble. Then Military Family. Then Oreck. In the meantime, I’ve written for other places that don’t pay but do encourage me to expand my creativity and stretch my writing skills.
I’m often overwhelmed and flustered trying to navigate a sudden full time freelance job with a daughter, home, and all the other things that come with that. I also absolutely adore and am so thankful for every.single.day of it. Really and truly. Being paid more than I made working out of the house and getting to be at home doing what I love is such an incredible blessing.
However, I don’t write about that part of my life often on here – because it seems weird. Weird to write about how you’re being paid to write because of your blog, on your blog.
Or something like that.
Nevertheless, it’s a huge part of my life. And I’m so excited to be able to share it more often with other moms over at Liberating Working Moms, founded by Tracy – who I’ve known since the very beginning of this blog.
So pop over, read my first post there about becoming and settling into being a WAHM, the ups and downs of my day, the money, and all that goes with that.
And thanks for sticking around and encouraging me to keep writing.
