Getting Back To Basics - Unfiltered

I'm going to be mixing things up a bit on the blog. As you know I'm a stay-at-home mom to our adorable never a dull moment Lil Man. And as a lot of stay-at-home moms do I sometimes struggle with the lack of providing financial support to our family. (It's Today Not Tomorrow) Don't get me wrong I feel that I do plenty of work  being a stay-at-home mom to our son. And my husband recognizes what I do.

But last year I did a lot of administrative freelance work when Lil Man was in preschool to help supplement our income. It was nice, but it also really stressed me out because I felt that I was using every free moment that I had to work.

This year I've tried a different approach. I dropped all of my freelance jobs, and  I've been focusing more on the blog in the way of trying to get my numbers up with increased traffic and trying to generate a little money that way. But the reality is I kind a lost focus of what I really want to do with this blog. So instead I'm planning on getting back to where I want to be which is me sharing myself with you and those of you who want to read what I have to say.

I also enjoy doing product reviews. I always have. I enjoy testing out products and giving my opinion on what I think about those products. But usually if your numbers are aren't a certain  number the companies don't want to work with you, and because of that I've been numbers focused. 

And I feel as though I've become so number conscious that I've lost my focus, I've lost my joy, and I've I wound up working hours to just try to create better numbers. So in a sense I created another job for myself however it didn't generate any revenue :-)

So I realize that I am losing focus with what I want so it's back to being me. This is who I am. I'm going back to the basics ya'll, and I appreciate each and everyone of you who take the time out of your day to read this blog. Oh and mom thanks for being my #1 fan and reader ;)

  1. The ups and downs of blogging can be so hard! In the end stay focused, I have found that I get out of it what I put into it. :)

  2. I can totally relate to your situation. Blogging is supposed to be fun and exciting too. I lost sight and recently I've decided to not be obsessed with numbers either. Great post and reminder!
