How do I decide what to blog about?

I come up with an idea and for a quick second & then I write… sometimes while writing I admit I’m like OMG can I even say that on a ‘mom blog’.. but guess what? It’s my site and I’ll do what I want. 

“It’s my site and I’ll do what I want.”

We are all different yet still so much alike so shouldn’t that be easy to just write and relate? You can only hope your voice stands out but also that you don’t stand out for the wrong reasons. Yeah, I’ll probably cover topics that all moms can relate to at times, which is my goal. Yes, I will cover products that all moms probably love. Yes, I’ll talk fashion, I’ll talk the flu and I’ll talk this that and the next thing..

Everyone is over the top worried about what everyone else wants to read or see or competing with others that they forget that it should be about what you want to write about, to share about. I always want to write about something that another person, even one person can relate to but I also want to just write. It’s a viral diary. An audience will not indulge fully and emotionally in a piece that they feel is written off a list of “go to titles” they found on Pinterest but rather a heartfelt piece or a piece with purpose. 

You’ll find sometimes and by sometimes I mean mostly all of the time aka all the time I write sporadically. It’s not on a schedule although I wished it would be sometimes. It not always because I can’t come up with something (although there are plenty of times I can’t). BUT ITS DEFINITELY not because I’m worried about not getting views or likes or comments, it’s because I need my posts to truly reflect me and my life. I’m not the type of person that has ever had a filter. As a matter of fact, I am a pretty unfiltered person. I speak my mind but I never disrespect. 

“I speak my mind but I never disrespect”.

So I just want to keep it as real as possible. I won’t pretend to know about things I seriously know nothing about, EVER!

I will always have the fun topics about favorite products that I love because I truly believe that they are great and want to share. 

I will always have the stories about vacations and the complicated chaos that surrounds the beautiful memories. 

I will always have blog posts that randomly pop up to talk about what is on my mind and most of the time they are going to be my favorite. 

I will always write to you exactly what it sounds like in my mind. I type as I think as if I would just be talking out loud. I do not go back and an edit to add flavor because you cannot go back and change what you said at a given time. 

I will always have something to say, I will always be honest and I will always listen to what you have to say back. I blog because it gives me a platform to share a little about myself and my family and it just feels so damn good to get it out 100% of the time.

We all have run ins at the playground. We all have nights of no sleep followed by long days that never want to end. At the end of the day, I just want a place to let it out and relate to anyone and everyone who wants to listen! 

End rant 😉

    Love this! Sometimes I’ll start writing a post and worry that people might judge me or write something negative back. But you’re right, we should be able to write what we want!

    • September 26, 2017 / 10:16 am

      My rule is that I never judge or discriminate, I never am disrespectful. So I think if we can all follow simple steps like this we should 100% be able to get off our chest or share as we please! Happy blogging!!!😘

    Love it!! Moms unite

    Oh your thoughts are just so similar to mine…I like what I feel like writing about and there goes no judgement neither received any.

    • September 28, 2017 / 1:36 pm

      So perfect! Such a positive way to be!

  6. September 28, 2017 / 12:48 pm

    Love this post! It’s so easy to get caught up in worrying what other people will think of our writing, so I can always use a reminder to just be genuine and write exactly what’s on my mind.

    • September 28, 2017 / 1:37 pm

      I’m all about those who are nothing but true 🙂 !!!

  7. September 30, 2017 / 11:26 pm

    I get the worst writers block sometimes! And then I start writing and worry about what others will think. So thank you!

    • September 30, 2017 / 11:30 pm

      Writers block is so normal for me now. Aw, always welcome!! Try to not overthink anything love, let it roll off the tips of your fingers and hit publish 😉 happy blogging.💕

      Aw thank you, you’re too sweet!

    Interesting to read all the ways that people approach blog writing. I’ll admit that some of this is similar to my approach and some isn’t but. As you said, we each do it our way and with no disrespect. Very important, I agree. One thing I totally relate to is that blogs afford us the opportunity to be incdiy honest. Aren’t we lucky?

    • October 25, 2017 / 6:36 am

      Yes, I read your latest piece and the art of not giving a f*** so I know you can relate on some level. Keep being honest, I totally dig it!

      • November 3, 2017 / 7:25 am

        thank you so much ‘this little mom’ that’s such a great message to receive.

      Thank you very much! It’s one to live by 😉

    Well said. I’m new to wordpress and I’ve been searching around for some different mom blogs that caught my attention. This one did and it kept me reading until the end. You’re right. It isn’t always about what everyone else wants to hear. It’s an absolute release to write. It’s a joy. I also agree with the posting sporadically part. I feel like some of the best posts come when you’re inspired. Nicely done. Be you and all be me! 😉 Happy Blogging!

    • November 7, 2017 / 11:04 am

      Well, first of all.. Welcome 🙂 I’m so happy you enjoyed! Always write what you want, don’t let the pressure of posting influence how you write! Can’t wait to read some of your pieces! Happy blogging!💕

      Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging.😀

  12. November 9, 2017 / 5:41 am

    I just signed on today and was writing out my first post and it was sounding more like a diary post. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to actually put it out there not knowing if it even works as a blog post. So I saved it and started looking at other posts and seeing yours and you saying ” it’s my site and I’ll do what I want.” It made me realize it my blog I can post what I want no matter what it is, how it sounds cause it’s still me putting myself out there one way or another.

    • November 9, 2017 / 8:50 am

      I’m so happy you came across this post then it sounds like it was exactly the reminder you needed! Always write what you feel 🙂 you’re the boss girl! Happy blogging.💕

  13. November 15, 2017 / 6:13 am

    Nice post👌👌💖

  14. November 26, 2017 / 5:14 pm

    This is so spot on. I am pretty new to blogging but I find that as a blogger it is indeed a fine line and a constant fight between posting what goes through your mind and posting it in a way that other people can relate to. For me I find that I have to enjoy what I am doing. It has to move me in some way. Otherwise what’s the point, right? I think it is more about getting the conversation going than anything else. Also, thank you for passing by!

      I’m glad that you found your reason. Happy blogging!!!💕

  15. December 12, 2017 / 11:38 am

    Completely agree… New to blogging here so for me its really not about who wants to follow me or like my post, but if I can connect to one person through something I write about be truly me then its all worth it !!

    • December 12, 2017 / 2:35 pm

      That’s my main goal mama! You have the right idea 😉 stick with it and you’ll find out why blogging can be such a great thing to do!!! Happy blogging.

  16. December 12, 2017 / 1:57 pm

    I totally agree, I haven’t been blogging for long but I realized that there are a lot of things you aren’t supposed to say when doing a mom blog and then I realize the same thing, it’s my blog and I can say whatever I want, I always try to stress it’s just my opinion and be kind to everyone but I also just say what I want because at the end of the day, it’s my blog, my place to rant and rave. Awesome blog by the way.

    • December 12, 2017 / 2:36 pm

      You are too sweet! Thank you so much!! I totally thought that in the world of mom blogging you needed to be perfect. Then I realized everyone will find a reason to judge the perfectly perfect or the imperfectly perfect so being yourself is the only way to go! Let it all out love! The world needs honesty!!

      • December 12, 2017 / 5:47 pm

        Isn’t that the truth, we move around a lot so I don’t have a lot of friends and so when I need to vent I just blog about it. LOL

        • December 12, 2017 / 9:51 pm

          You always have a friend in me! 🙂

          • December 12, 2017 / 10:19 pm

            Aw thank you that’s so sweet!
