I have marvellous ideas during the day while I’m at work about fabulous blog posts I want to write and I even quickly jot those ideas down (hallo mega amounts of draft posts). Then I get home and do the parenting thing and by the time I’ve had dinner, washed up, and told my son a million times that, yes, he does have to have a shower today, the last thing I want to do is sit in front of my computer and write of those blog posts.
I’ve been thinking lots about this mummyblogger thing as it explodes in Australia and for some reason is a ‘thing’. I think it only is a ‘thing’ because people are using their talents to earn some money. How dare they?
I look at it from the sidelines and wish that I had more time, more creativity, and more inclination to get more involved.
But I work nearly full-time and if there are any bloggers out there who work full-time, and parent full-time on your own, while making blogging work for them part-time then I’m all ears about how you do that.
I’d much rather do what I love and pay someone to do the housework and gardening but the housework and the gardening, oh, and being a fabulous mum, take up a lot of my time out of work hours. So is ‘mummyblogging’ just for those mums who don’t work full-time outside of the home? I’d like to know.
But I’m probably out of the so-called ‘mummyblogging’ zone because my son is now 11 and I write less about him than I used to. I guess I’m a bit directionless here. Am I a photoblogger now? I don’t know!
In the big scheme of things it’s okay because I’ve got my health and I’m bloody thankful for that.
