I have been blogging for nearly 3 whole years and within those three years I have seen many negative comments towards Mummy bloggers. When I started blogging I primarily did it because I wanted to write about family days out with my partner and the girls, write their monthly update and just something to look back at once the girls and I are older. I didn't really think about what kind of blogger I wanted to be. It just came naturally that I was a Mummy blogger as that is who I am.
I have been a Mum for just over 6 years and my life has completely changed since I fell pregnant at 16 and I do not regret any of it. Many non-bloggers and even other bloggers out there think that all Mummy bloggers 'think they know everything' and making other Mums look bad. That is not the case.
Many Mummy bloggers do write parenting tips and advice. I do myself. The reason I write tips and advice for other Mums and Dads is because I like to think that I may of helped another parent who needed help, such as potty training or going through the toddler tantrum stage. Every single tips and advice post I wrote are my own opinions and my own experience. I don't expect all parents and non-parents to agree with my tips and advice posts because we all bring our kids up different ways.
So why a Mummy blogger? As I said above, it just came naturally for me to write a parenting blog. I have never been a make up fan, not very good with clothing fashion or crafts etc, what I do know about is parenting. I know what it is like to bring up one and two children. I know what it is like being pregnant and bringing a child up at the same time. I know what it is like to fall in deep with pre-natal and post-natal depression. I want to share my story. This blog is my space on the net and I want to share my stories with my readers. Maybe one day my story or tips and advice page will help another Mummy (or Dad) out there.
I will never stop blogging if I ever got a negative comment about being a Mum blogger. I am so thankful for my blog. My partner, girls and myself have done so much the past three years, all down to my blog. My blog is my hobby and my part-time job. If I want to blog about my girls, parenting tips or any other Mummy topic, then I will. Some of you may not like the idea that there are 'Mummy' Bloggers out there, but many other people do.
I am proud to be called a Mummy/Parenting Blogger.
