I have to put both these videos in one spot because I look so Fr-eaking exhausted that I want the post to go live and then get immediately buried in my blog. LOL and FYI – my husband is a little wacky too, so be warned!
We answered all the questions that were left for us on last week’s post. If you have any more that you want to shout out, please feel free to leave them here.
We will do our next video on Monday. This week we are going to spend some time with the kiddies and relax a bit.
As far as how I got into blogging:
Picture it. NYC. 2005. I just became a SAHM and was overdosing on reality television and boredom. NONE of my friends were even MARRIED – forget about children. So I felt very isolated and alone. I was watching Entertainment Tonight and they mentioned the top 10 gossip blogs. I wrote them down, ran upstairs to my computer and checked each of them out.
That night I had a server, a blog and a new hobby – I’m Not Obsessed.
It gave me something to do while Natalie napped. I’m not into housework so the THOUGHT of those dirty dishes in the sink just made my skin crawl. I couldn’t always get to them because I was “working”. It was awesome!! 🙂 LOL
After about 1.5 years, it finally started to earn. I took a LONG time to start bringing in money, but now we have a good system going and I hired a few girls to help with the load. Once Natalie aged (and Liam joined our family) I no longer had as much free time as I once did.
I love the girls that work with me. Without them I wouldn’t be able to spend any time with the kids. My traffic has suffered because the voice just isn’t the same, but it’s worth it for me to be present in my kids’ lives.
