Our Blog Awesome Challenge has finally come to a close, and we’ve selected one blogger to officially become a part of the Tots2Tweens family, but we truly feel like we met so very many wonderful women courtesy of this challenge that we’re hoping all of them continue to be a part of T2T in some way or another.
Home: Jarrettsville, MD
Owner: The Green Eyed Mama Blog
Meet the family: Married with two kiddos, ages 3 & 5
Why we love her: She has taken the digital mom lifestyle and fully embraced it! We love to see people interacting in the social media space for more than just stalking ex boyfriends, and this mom is one you can see is using her power and knowledge in this space for good! Plus, her blog has gone through so many changes lately! And it’s just so much more! More engaging, more informative, and definitely more awesome!
Why she thinks you should check out her site:
Every mom can relate to the ups and downs of raising two very spunky boys, and I might have an opinion or two to share!
How Blogging Became a Way of Life
With the birth of my second son, I wanted to share the things we did, and the hundreds of pictures I was taking to share with family. January of this year I sat down and set a goal, to share and write on a greater scale of our family’s story.
Finding Time to Pursue Passion
I blog at the witching hour, when the three guys in my world are sound asleep, and the house is finally peaceful! (This is not the correct answer for all Moms, just the time I have to myself!) Balance is a rare thing, but it is something I have to really work for, as it doesn’t come easily! I often have to just come out, and ask for help or time from my husband.
Getting Your Foot in the Blogging Door
Momma, (you) can do this! There are so many brilliant women who are more than willing to mentor and share with you the process, of how to get started blogging! You have a story to tell and share with other Mommas, in your very own creative space…the first time, since becoming a Mom you have a space that is 100% uniquely yours!
Everyone has to learn how to network, and I was SO clueless how to get started! I blog “lurked,” and followed so many awesome blogs, but it wasn’t until I commented or introduced myself to some the great “pros,” that I found out that it is certainly okay to ask questions! Every “newbie,” has to start somewhere.
