Why I Started A Blog
I started my blogging journey in 2017, a couple of months after giving birth to my second son. At that time, I felt the need to have an outlet for my thoughts and feelings as I struggled to cope with the pressure and stress of motherhood. I blogged without expecting anyone to read any of my posts. As a matter of fact, I did not want anyone to know that I had a blog because I was not sure if what I was writing was “good enough”.
To my surprise, people were actually reading my blog! A few of my friends even encouraged me to go all the way and make it a career. After my family moved to Italy, I realized that it would be fun to write about our family’s expat adventures! That was when I decided to get my own domain via Siteground. I also joined the Influential Mamas Promo and Community Facebook Group and discovered mommy bloggers such as myself who share the same passion for writing and influencing.
As my way of celebrating International Women’s Day on March 8, I would like to share a list of mom blogs with inspiring stories and helpful resources. To make this more fun, these mommy bloggers also shared their wedding photos!
